just in time for july 4th

A few days ago, my father-in-law generously shared a large bag of peaches with us.



While we adore peaches, we don't love them enough to consume multiple peaches per day in order to keep them from ending up as mushy moldy fruit.

I have to admit that cooking is chore for me. If it was not for the direct threat of my children and husband starving to death, I'd elect to remove dinner as a meal option and eat a bowl of cereal each night.

However, baking is an entirely different story, friends. Don't tell anyone that I sliced the peaches without taking the skin off first, which meant that I had to take the skin off the hard way.

Slice.

By.

Slice.



Behold, peach pie.








I didn't quite have enough enough crust to fully connect the bottom and top crust so the juice bubbled through, but trust me, if it happens to you, it won't change the fact that this pie will whisper your name and tell you that it is okay to have a 2nd piece. Not that I know anything about that.

Follow this simple recipe and you will be on your way to pure deliciousness.

I have one confession, though. I cheated this time and use a box recipe for the crust. Here's a great crust recipe that I make when I bake apple pie. It is from my father-in-law. He's a professional chef so he knows his pie crust.

Enjoy your 4th of July!

Much love,
Katie

And I too could eat a bowl of cereal for dinner every night. My favorite!
