And Here's the Pie

Here are pictures of the peach pie I made for last Thursday's picnic. The recipe comes from that great cookbook I found in Duluth—Betty's Pies Favorite Recipes, written by the ultimate pie-making legend, Betty Lessard. It's Betty's favorite, enjoy!

Fresh Peach Pie

1 cup sugar
5 Tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 1/2 cups sliced peaches
1 1/2 Tablespoons butter

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Line a 9-inch pie pan with pastry (perhaps I'll share my favorite in a future post).

Combine the 1 cup of sugar, flour and cinnamon, mixing well. Lightly mix in the fresh peaches and pour into the pie shell. Dot with butter and cover with a top crust. Prick the top crust and sprinkle with sugar.

Put the pie into a 400 degree oven and bake for 40 to 50 minutes.
