I really wanted donuts this morning, but I couldn't talk anyone into going and buying them for me. Bastards. So I made a pie. It made sense to me at the time. I had 8-9 peaches that were getting ready to go around the bend, so it was a good way to save them, too.
The Sugar Peach Pie is like a sweet custard with peaches in it, sitting in a crust. There is no top crust. It is fairly easy to make and was a big favorite of mine as a kid because it is pretty sweet. I mean, it's not a donut, but it works in a pinch.
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/3 cup plust 1 tablespoon of crisco
- 2-3+ tbl of ice water
Mix together - add water slowly until the ball is a good texture - not dry and crumbly but not wet. Roll it out on wax paper with a rolling pin and then lay it in a pie plate. Pinch around the edges to make a pretty crust edge.
Arrange peach halves in the shell and bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
In the meantime mix all this together:
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup of sugar
- 2 tablespoons of butter
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
When the pie is done cooking, pour this mixture over the peaches and then put it back in the oven at 350 for 30 more minutes.
