Yummy fresh peach pie. This recipe for peach almond pie makes one 9inch pie crust that is filled with a delicious peach and almond filling. Delicious!
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1/2 cup cold butter, cut into small pieces
4 to 5 tablespoons ice water
3 lbs peaches, peeled and sliced
1/8 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
2 Tablespoons butter, cut into bits
1/2 cup almond slivers
Serves 4 - 6
Preheat oven to 420F.
Grease one 9-in pie plate.
To make the pie crust, combine the flour, salt, and sugar in a large bowl.
Using a pastry blender, or 2 butter knives, cut the butter into the dry ingredients until itís in pea-size pieces.
Drizzle in 4 tablespoons of the ice water and mix just until the dough comes together. Add the last tablespoon of ice water if necessary.
Shape the dough into a flat disk, cover it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
On a well floured surface, roll dough out to fit your pie plate and set aside and make the filling.
Place pie crust into pie pan and crimp edges as desired.
Mix together peaches, almond extract, sugar, spices, lemon juice and cornstarch until peaches have a nice even coating.
Place peaches into prepared crust and bake for 20 minutes. Then lower heat to 375F and bake for an additional 30 minutes. Spread almond slivers on top of baked pie. Let cool. Serve.
