Sweet Peach Pie

There is nothing like a midweek trip out to the country. Where dirt roads are accompanied by roadside fruit and vegetable stands, and the farms are plentiful for pick your own fruit. As soon as I pulled into the farm the aroma of fresh peaches filled the air. After spending multiple hours picking the prettiest peaches I decided the best way to use some of them was in my great grandmother’s sweet peach pie. Resulting in the perfect combination of sweet and tart.  

Sweet Peach Pie
• 1 cup water
• 1 cup sugar
• 5 tablespoons cornstarch
• ¼ cup lemon juice
• ¼ teaspoon salt
• ¼ cup butter
• 7 peaches, peeled and sliced
• 9 inch pre-cooked pie shell (homemade or store bought)

In a medium saucepan combine water, sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice and salt, whisk until combined. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until thick (hard to stir). Remove from the heat and add the butter, stir until melted and combined. Add peaches and gently fold to coat. Pour into your precooked pie shell. Refrigerate until set, about five hours. Top with whipped cream and serve.
