Peaches are in season where I live now!
I am very excited about this!!!!!!!
Partner does not like peaches, which means that I only have to share with the tiny human and maybe the guinea pigs - if I feel like it.
I have made delicious peach pie!
Look at the super-peachy insides!
I have eaten too much sugar!!
Make your own peach pie:
1 prepared pie shell (I cheated an used a frozen Tenderflake)
quick-cooking rolled oats
butter or margarine
peaches (I used a 3L basket of peaches, minus the 3 or 4 I had already eaten)
Preheat the oven to 350F
Peel and slice your peaches
An easy way to peel peaches is to cut a little X in the skin at the bottom of the peach, put them in a heat-safe bowl or pot, and pour over freshly boiled water from the kettle. Let sit for 30 seconds to a minute, and then run them under cold water to stop them from cooking. The skins should be loose and easy to rub off with your hands.
Put your peeled & sliced peaches in a bowl and sprinkle over a nice layer of cinnamon goodness. Then add some sugar (I just eyeballed it - I think I used about a half cup). Feel free to add a little bit, and then taste and adjust accordingly.
Then drop in 2 heaping tablespoons of cornstarch and stir everything together.
To make the crumble topping, mix together around a cup of oats with 2-3 heaping tablespoons of cold butter or margarine and 1/4 to 1/2 cup of brown sugar. Mix together with a fork until it appears crumbly then pour over the top of your pie.
Bake in the oven for 50-60 minutes and then let it cool for 10 minutes minimum, despite the temptation to cut into it right away.
Eat pie. Get a sugar buzz.
