Peach & Blueberry Pie





Pies are lovely little things, simple and loving creatures. They are what the home cook bakes over the weekend for her family, they are eaten in the evening with a glass of white wine, outside, taking in the last of daylight. What a nice picture I have painted while I am sitting here stuck in my cubicle at work…ah to dream.



Pie, will you marry me? And pie, if you won’t marry me can we at least have a few dates in the next couple of months? WORD







INGREDIENTS


2 Pie Crusts (this recipe makes 3, that leaves one for your next pie)
4 Large Peaches, skinned – medium dice
1 pint of blueberries
½ cup of sugar, this makes a medium sweetness pie
½ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp nutmeg
2 tbs butter
3 tbs cornstarch
½ Lemon, juiced
1 egg beaten, with one tbs of water
Turbinado Sugar for dusting the lattice



DIRECTIONS


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Move the oven rack to the bottom third of the oven.On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the dough to a 10-inch round. Loosely drape the dough round over the rolling pin and transfer to a 9-inch pie pan. Press the dough over the bottom and sides of the pan. Trim the edges to about 1/2-inch. Brush bottom with a little bit of your egg glaze.







Toss the fruit with the sugar, lemon, and cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg. Pile the fruit into the pie shell and dot with the butter. Roll out the reserved dough and cut into strips, weave a nice little lattice.







Brush with your egg glaze, then dust with turbinado sugar. Put the pie on a baking sheet and bake until the crust is golden brown and the juices are bubbling up through the lattice, 50 to 70 minutes. Cover the edges with aluminum foil if they brown too fast.


Remove from oven and let this bad boy rest for at least 4 hours – it sets up real nice and in this particular recipe the juice is very very minimal…as you can see!







Now, go love a pie for heaven’s sake.

Lovely combination of fruit and oh so tasty looking. I bet this would be fantastic with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream fresh out of the oven!

What a fun post! I do love pie so much that I can't make it. You see, it calls to me in the night and I find myself involuntarily responding to it. I don't think there is one pie on my blog. All other foods, my guy takes to the downstairs kitchen, "out-a-sight, out-a-mind," but nOt pIe! This blueberry-peach pie would be screaming. It looks amazing!

Alejandra Ramos said...

I'm not a huge pie fan (I know. so weird.) but this one looks REALLY good to me. Maybe it's the peach and blueberry combo. So yum!!!

Monet said...

Pie's already taken! Just kidding...but you and I both love pies, in all of their wonderful forms. This is a lovely recipe that combines two of my favorite foods into a flaky and buttery crust. How could we not be smitten? Thank you for sharing!

Monica H said...

The goods in this pie are beautiful- love the colors!

Your lattice crust looks great! I love pie too...though at heart I am more of a cake person. My husband, on the other hand, is definitely a pie person, and I love making pies for him!

girlichef said...

mmmmm...super tasty. I've always had a love affair with pie. ;)

scrambledhenfruit said...

Oh yes, I'd like a date with that pie. It looks scrumptious! Too fickle to marry it though. An apple or pumpkin pie might turn my head. :)

Tasha said...

This looks so delicious! What a great combination!

I will definitely be back to check out more recipes!

Christy said...

It's not often I say this, but that's too pretty to eat! I'm the worst at pie crust! I'll need to try your crust next time!

Tia said...

you are the pie/tart QUEEN! i love all your posts and great fillings.

Indie.Tea said...

Yum! I've always wondered if peaches and blueberries work together...I've heard of peaches and blackberries but this combination seems more unique (plus blueberries are so much more dependable than blackberries).
Your pie looks great too.

Raina said...

Yummm .... that looks beyond wonderful!!

The Cooking Photographer said...

I would marry pie too, if only it would have me. It would be a short marriage. Then I'd have to propose to a new pie and soon enough I'd make Elizabeth Taylor look like an amateur.

Beautiful pie by the way wow!
