First Place Peach Pie
Recipe from Chris Berg, Peach Festival Contest Winner 2008
6 cups of ripe peaches, sliced with skin on
1 1/3 cups sugar
¼ cup all-purpose flour
½ tsp. ground nutmeg
¾ tsp. vanilla extract
3 tablespoons butter
Combine peaches, sugar, flour, and nutmeg in a saucepan: set aside
until syrup forms. Bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat to low, and
cook 10 minutes or until peaches are tender, stirring often. Remove
from heat; add vanilla and butter, blending well. Pour filling into
pie crust, top with lattice strips. Bake at 425° for 10 minutes.
Reduce heat to 350° and bake an additional 30 minutes.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. Salt
2/3 cup plus 2 tablespoon shortening
4-5 tablespoons water
Combine flour and salt; cut in shortening with pastry blender
until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle cold water, 1
tablespoon at a time, evenly over surface; stir with a fork until
dry ingredients are moistened. Shape into a ball, chill. Makes one
double pie crust.
