Peaches are on!!! Woot woot!
Here's the first thing I made this year with my peaches (besides just eating them fresh and wonderful, which really is the best way to enjoy a peach in my opinion. 'Course this pie was nothing short of heavenly....
To make the pie, I used my recipe for fresh strawberry pie but just substituted peaches. My family and I very much enjoyed the results. I especially like this recipe because the sauce isn't made from Jell-o. It's made from the peaches themselves. ;)
So, go buy yourself a box or two of peaches from a fruit stand and make sure to eat Fresh Peach Pie soon.Everyday Art's Fresh Peach Pie
