Homemade Peach Pie....Oh so Good!


I went to a favorite fruit and veggie market this past weekend with my mother and while I was there I picked up some peaches. I brought them home and left them set a few days to get a bit more ripe and yesterday was the day. They were finally ready to dig into so this is what I made.
It was so good!
I tried a different pie crust recipe and I think this one will be my new favorite.
It called for Crisco but I didn't have any so I just replaced it with butter and it was so easy to work with, not to mention  how tasty it was.

Pie Crust

3 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tbsp. sugar
1 cup Crisco ( I used "real" butter)
1 egg
2 tbsp. vinegar
3 tbsp. water

Combine flour, salt & sugar in a bowl.
Blend in Crisco (or butter) with a pastry blender.
In a small bowl, mix egg, vinegar and water together.
Add this to flour mixture.
Roll out pie crust.
(Makes 2 crusts)

Peach Pie

3 tbsp. cooking tapioca
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
4 cups fresh sliced peaches
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. butter (softened)

Combine tapioca, sugar, salt, peaches & lemon juice in a bowl.
Let them set for 15 minutes.
Add butter to peach mixture and give it a stir.
Pour peach mixture into bottom of pie crust.
Place top crust on and seal edges.
Bake on a foil lined pan at 400° for 50-60 minutes.
Enjoy with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!
