Peaches and Cream Pie

I’m excited to have a friend guest post today on SouthernPlate! I know y’all will enjoy getting to know Lark of Lark’s Country Heart and I hope you’ll visit her blog soon for more yummy recipes!  ~Christy

 

larkFirst I want to thank Christy for asking me to share a recipe with Y’all here at Southern Plate. I am honored she asked me.

Now let me share a little bit about myself.

My name is Lark, yup just like the bird. (ha, ha.) I just celebrated my 16th Wedding Anniversary. We were blessed with one child, our daughter Jessica who just turned 14 yrs. old and in now going to be a Freshman in High School. ~ YIKES!

I grew up the 5th child out of 7 in a small town in Southern Nevada. I couldn’t wait to get out of that little town….Back then I remember saying “there is nothing to do in a small town.” Or “I can’t wait to move somewhere else…somewhere where  there is a Mall!” Well guess what? I now am married and raising our Daughter in a SMALL TOWN in Southern Nevada! It isn’t the same town I grew up in, however it is only an hour drive away.

I have always enjoyed cooking and baking. I find that creating a recipe of my own is so stress relieving. I started blogging as a way of typing up all my recipes for future generations to have. So I could get them organized and in one place. Almost 4 years later  the Lark’s Country Heart blog has grown so much. I am thankful that I am still loving every minute of it.

I do have other hobbies that help keep me sane. I love to run marathons, craft, read, travel and of course shop! I try to “pay it forward” as often as I can. I have a soft spot for helping to find a CURE for ALL Types of Cancer. I am so grateful for the Freedom, Faith, Family & Friends I have. I am forever grateful to include Christy in this list.

My mantra at this moment in life is:
“BE the change you want to see in the world!”

Now, lets get baking.:)

Peaches and Cream Pie

 Nothing says summer more than all the fresh fruit available. I can not stop buying it. For I know that very soon all the fruit will be gone. Well at least the fresh picked anyway. Yes I know you can get fruit year around, however I really believe it doesn’t taste the same. Peaches are one of those fruits that I only eat fresh during the summer months. That being said I go a little over board…lol.

That is how this pie came to be. I had to find a way of using up some of the “older” peaches I had  sitting in the fridge. I was NOT going to toss them out!

Peaches and Cream Pie

Begin by placing sliced peaches into unbaked shell.

In a small bowl sift together the flour, sugar, cinnamon, and salt.

In a separate bowl beat together the eggs, sour cream, and extract.

Pour half of the dry ingredients into the cream mixture.

Mix well.

Add in the remaining dry ingredients and beat well again. Now pour cream filling over top of the peaches.

Now it’s time to mix up the crumb topping for this pie.

In a bowl sift together the flour and sugar. Then cut in the cold butter with a fork or pastry blender. You will want for the crumbs to be pea size that will come together if you pinch it between your fingers.

Sprinkle evenly over entire pie.

Place onto the center rack of your pre-heated oven, bake for 1 hour.

Let pie cool completely before serving.

Believe me it is so hard to wait for it to cool, because the smell of this pie baking is DIVINE! It will be worth the wait I promise. I like to serve it up with some fresh sliced peaches and fresh whipped cream.
*This Pie also freezes really well for up to a month.

Now dive on in, ENJOY!

    Yumm-O!! I am making this one. Decades ago, a (10 cent store) had a lunch counter that had some of best pie in town. Peach Blossom, Apple Blossom and Cherry Blossom. I’ve looked for a similar recipe for years. The fruit had a custard over it and mixed through, topped with meringue. This may be the closest thing I’ve seen to it. That pie still sticks in my memory…. Precious Memories.

      To be honest Karen I have only made this using fresh peaches.
      So I am not sure if canned peaches would work. I am thinking they would have to much juice, therefore making the pie “soggy”. I am just guessing though since I have not tried it myself yet. Sorry I wasnt much help!

    Oh Lark (what a Beautiful name), I just got through eating the biggest, most perfect , most delicious peach I’ve had in I don’t know when) and here comes your post! Surely I can get to the rest of these peaches before my husband does and make this fabulous looking pie.

  3. Patty D says

    Oh Lark! You have done a masterpiece. This looks so delicious and I just have to make it today. Thank you for being Christy’s guest. It’s nice to meet you. I also live in a small town with no shopping to speak of, unless you consider the tiny local grocery story shopping. I understand the small town thing, for sure. Many blessings to you and your small town family. (Oh, and I am the third of seven children–we do have some things in common.)

    I don’t know what I’d do without Southern Plate. I always end up making stuff the same day you post it. I’m eating my pie now and it’s great. I used peaches from Costco that come in a glass jar, so I assume canned would work too.

  5. Denise says

    This sounds like the ‘custard’ pies I make..only without the crumb topping. Now to try something new ! A comment to Carla and anyone else wondering about using canned peaches. Carla used bottled peaches from Costco. Those are indeed ‘canned’ botted, canned, same thing ! ( ~.~)

    I must try this version of peach pie. I just had a peach cobbler yesterday so will wait a few days. I hope I can still find fresh peaches. Fresh is always the best. I have made a similar peach pie with canned peaches and it was really good, just didn’t have the crumb crust on top.

    I’m a lucky girl to be a friend of Lark’s and frequently get the opportunity to sample her delicious reciept creations! The thing I love about her blog is that they’re made from things that I usually have on hand…Note: Obviously things you can even find at a small town Grocery store! If you love things made with Lemon then you’ll find MANY reciepts on Lark’s blog for sure! She loves Lemon and definately knows how to make it Yummy! Thanks for another Great Reciept Lark!

    This pie is delicious!!! I made it yesterday and it was a hit with my husband. I used a normal pie pan, not deep dish, and nothing spilled out. A very easy recipe that I will make again!
