Peaches are at the peak of their season here in Oregon. Here is a quick and easy Rustic Peach Pie that you can make in no time. My favorite variety is “Red Haven” and I picked up some at my local farm market Schedeens in Gresham, Oregon.
Rustic Peach Pie
Makes 2 pies
3 cups Bob’s Red Mill flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups shortening
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
5 tablespoons cold water
6 cups fresh peaches, peeled and sliced
½ cups sugar
3 tablespoons Bob’s Red Mill flour
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In large bowl combine the flour and salt. Add shortening
and cut into flour until it resemble coarse meal. In small bowl combine the egg, vinegar,
and water and quickly mix into mixture until combined. Divide dough in half and flatten
into a disk, wrap in plastic and let set for 30 minutes in refrigerator.
Filling: In medium size bowl combine peaches, sugar, flour, cinnamon, vanilla and
melted butter. Set aside for 10 minutes.
Once dough is ready take one piece and roll out to a 12” circle. Place ½ the peach
mixture around in a circular pattern staying 2” from the edge. Carefully fold the 2” border
of dough just up over the peaches. Place on parchment lined baking sheet and bake in
425 degree oven for 15 minutes, reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake 30 minutes or
until crust is slightly brown and peaches are soft. Set on rack to cool.
Once cooled sprinkle the pie crust edge with powdered sugar.
