I have had peaches coming out of every orifice, ears, arse, you name it. Our tree brought the goods this year, I love it.
Me and Izzy have gone out and filled up bags and bags with peaches. Her on one side of the ladder and me on the other, and a shop bag hanging on the side. I have frozen several bags of stewed peaches, eaten heaps, made pie for the neighbours, made pudding and now I've made BBQ sauce too!
1 Tbspn sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
salt and 2 tspns sugar, mixed into flour
3 Tbspn margarine or butter
2 - 3 Tbspn cold water
Rub butter into flour. Add water and form into dough. Wrap in cling film and refrigerate.
Peel and slice the peaches thickly.
Roll out dough and cover the bottom and sides of the pie dish.
Layer in the peaches and sprinkle the sugar over.
With remaining pastry, cut into strips and crisscross them over the top.
Bake at 200 for 15 - 20 minutes.
Instead of peaches, try other fruit. This is the recipe I always use for apple pie. To.die.for!
If this seems like too much fiddling around, you could always just layer the fruit into the pie dish and just cover the top with pastry. The following photo is just that. Pile up the fruit under the pastry top , the fruit will settle once it cooks down. Cook for the same amount of time.
Delicious with cream or ice cream!
