Coffee Break!

Welcome to this week's Coffee Break!

Today we're having
Peachy Peach Pie. A couple weeks ago I picked up several baskets of fresh peaches on sale from the grocery store. And yesterday they were beginning to get overripe so hubby and I cut them up in no time.

I ended up with about 9 cups of sliced peaches which is the perfect amount for a couple of pies. I actually debated about using some of the peaches for

1. Jam, or
2. Cobbler, or
3. Melba or .........

Well, you get the picture. There were so many choices, but the pies won out.

Peachy Peach Pie

2 crust pie dough
4 1/2 cups sliced, peeled peaches
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp almond extract (optional)
3 tbsp flour or 1 1/2 tbsp cornstarch
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp butter

Combine cornstarch or flour, sugar and salt and blend thoroughly. Add to peaches and toss together until slices are coated with sugar mixture.

Line a 10 inch pie pan with pie dough. Arrange peaches in crust and sprinkle with a combination of lemon juice and almond extract. Dot with butter.

Adjust the top crust and trim and seal the edges. Bake in a 450F oven for 10 minutes, then reduce the heat to 350F and continue to bake for about 30 minutes, or until peaches are tender. Cool on a wire rack.

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream and coffee.

Have a peachy day,
