Last weekend, we had our annual family birthday party. It's a big affair because we celebrate a total of seven summer birthdays at once. Since my three daughters are all good cooks, we wind up with a wonderful spread and eat a lot.
My daughter, Cindy brought this fresh peach dessert. It was so good that I made it for my writer's group on Friday. Everybody raved about it, so in the spirit of sharing, here it is:
FRESH PEACH PIE (double the recipe for 9 x 13 pan) Crust: 1 c flour...1 stick of softened butter...1/4 c powdered sugar Mix until crumbly and pat in pie pan, bake 15 min & cool. Topping: 1/4 c water...3 T cornstarch...1 c sugar 2 T butter...1 c fresh peaches, peeled and mashed Method: Combine water, cornstarch, sugar and mashed peaches into sauce pan and cook stirring constantly. Boil for a full minute til thick. Add the butter and cool. Peel and slice 3 cups of peaches and spread over the crust and pour cooked filled over covering all the peaches.
This is the nicest thing you can do with peaches! Enjoy.
I'm a big fan of my home state of Minnesota, especially because all of my kids and grandkids live here. I'm retired but keep busy with puttering, volunteering and writer's groups. I have three well-loved kitties who keep me smiling. I am surrounded by trees and wildlife even though I live within a few miles (as the crow flies) of the state capitol building in downtown St Paul. This keeps me quite contented.
