I’ve had pie on the brain recently so when I came across this simple peach pie recipe I took a trip to my local market for a big bag of fresh fruit then set to work.
Let me tell you, I underestimated the work that goes into peeling a peach – that stuff is time-consuming and (if you’re messy like me) you end up with juice everywhere – but the results are so worth the effort. I also enjoy the messiness of making my own pastry; I used this shortcrust pastry recipe, just adjusting the amounts, and opted for a lattice top.
I’ve been enjoying warm slices of this with ice cream and a cup of tea. Peach pie might be something I only bake for special occasions but I definitely will be baking it again.
