Fresh peach pie is my all time favorite pie. But there is only one recipe I really like. My mom's. Funny thing is, I don't remember my mom ever making this pie herself. I remember her teaching me how to make it. I remember her teaching me how to dip the peaches in boiling water for a few seconds in order to slip the fuzzy skins off, and how to roll out the pie crust.
I am still figuring out the details of running the new-to-me appliances in this house. I thought I had turned the oven down after the initial 10 minutes at 450 degrees, but realized about 40 minutes later when the topping wasn't browning, that I had turned the oven off! Thankfully, it wasn't ruined and after the oven heated back up to 350 degrees, it browned nicely. (Maybe I need to actually read the directions for the oven...)
Oh man, now I am hungry!
(Minimalistic directions, but that's how my mom wrote out her recipes. Several of them just have a list of ingredients with no explanation or directions. She was an awesome cook.)Open Face Peach Pie
