Mom’s Peach Pie – Dana Shortt Gourmet

Mom’s Peach Pie

Ingredients

  • 8 peaches, peeled and sliced
  • 1/3 cup melted butter, cooled
    (or substitute three (3) tablespoons of DSG butter flavoured olive oil)
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1, 9″ pastry shell
    (use your own favourite recipe or try the “tender flake” brand)

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. Place the peaches in a large mixing bowl, set aside.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the melted, cooled butter (or the butter olive oil), the egg, sugar and flour. Pour over the peaches and toss to combine.
  4. Pour the peach mixture into the pie shell. Place the pie on a baking sheet and bake in a 400 F oven for 15 minutes.  Reduce the heat to 350 F and bake for another 30 – 40 minutes or until set.  Allow to cool before eating.

Notes

Not a baker?  Here are some other delicious ideas for fresh Ontario peaches:

  • Make a quesadilla or pizza with pesto, peaches, bacon and your favourite cheese.
  • Make a gourmet grilled cheese with sliced peaches, ham, and brie.
  • Make a salad with baby arugula, diced peaches, goat cheese and sliced red onions.
  • Grill peaches on the bbq (simply peel and halve, then toss in a bit of olive oil) and serve alongside grilled pork and/or chicken.
  • Make a gourmet ice cream sundae with sautéed peaches, chopped hazelnuts, and crushed amaretto cookies.
