I've never made peach pie before, so I was nervous when I embarked on the challenge. I got Fredericksburg peaches from a farm stand on 620. I blanched them, then peeled the peaches, tossed them in a mixture of flour, brown sugar, and cornstarch.

I rolled out the pie shell I'd gotten from Central Market, and put it gingerly over the pie plate that my husband got me. I fluted the edges a little. And then I followed the recipe below, doubling the mixture called for.

3/4 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
6 fresh peaches - pitted, skinned, and sliced
1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch single crust pie

Cream sugar and butter or margarine together. Add flour and nutmeg; mix until mealy. Spread 1/2 of mixture in pie crust. Arrange peaches on top of crumb mixture. Sprinkle remaining crumb mixture on top of peaches.
Bake at 450 degrees F (230 degrees C) for ten minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Continue baking for 40 minutes, or until brown.

The pie was amazing, and even better with a scoop of Blue Bell ice cream last night. I had another slice of the pie this morning for breakfast. It doesn't look bad for a first try, does it?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
