It is one of the fruits that, to me, embodies SUMMER (along with my other summer favorite, blueberries). And now that Summer 2019 is coming to an end (my son went back to school today, 5th grade!) I’d like to share an easy Peach Pie recipe with you.
You could use store bought dough for the crust but making it is easy if you have a few minutes to spare.
I recommend using peaches that are somewhat soft when you press them and those that have their “shoulders” wrinkled slightly and “dropped” already. They are the most flavorful ones, plus, they peel easily.
This crust recipe comes together really fast as I use the Thermomix, however the procedure on how to make it without the Thermomix follows.
Ingredients for 2 crusts:
11 oz all purpose flour
5 oz cold butter, cut into pieces
1 teaspoon salt
4 oz ice cold water
Place all ingredients into the Thermomix bowl and mix 20 seconds, speed 4.
*To make the crust without the Thermomix: Place flour, butter, and salt in a bowl and pinch together with your fingers until the mixture looks like sand. Add cold water and stir with a wooden spoon until dough comes together.*
Remove dough from the bowl, divide into 2 (one slightly larger than the other) and press gently into 2 disks.
Roll the bigger disk to fit the bottom of a pie plate. Press crust onto the pie plate, allowing a little bit to hang over the edges. Prick a few times with a fork. Cover with plastic wrap.
Roll the smaller one to a 10 inch round and wrap with plastic wrap. Refrigerate both while we prepare the filling.
Now we’ll make the filling.
