Shortly after we moved one of my dearest friends brought me a bushel of peaches from our church orchard. I knew that I wouldn't be up to canning them so I had to figure out how to make sure I used them all before they went bad. I made lots of peach smoothies, peach crisp, I cut them up on my cereal, oatmeal and cream of wheat. I also blanched, peeled, cut and froze a bunch of them (smoothies all winter!). With the ones that were left I decided to tackle one of the goals on my list...homemade pie and crust. I researched it online a bit and I must admit it turned out so well. The crust didn't look beautiful but it was thin and flaky - nearly perfect! The filling was great also. The next week I made chicken pot pie and I wasn't quite as successful with the crust but it turned out pretty darn good also. So..YAY I made a peach pie from scratch!

We too had peach overload from a family member's tree. We made lots of peach crisp and Jeff took a bunch to work. You hate to see them go bad. Your pie looks yummy!
