Fresh Peach Pie

Are  you finding delicious peaches in  your grocery stores, or better yet fruit stands?  There's nothing quite like a juicy, ripe peach!  Don't you love how the fruits change with the seasons?  I couldn't get enough berries last month, and now I'm loving the peaches and getting excited for apple season.  So many things to enjoy!

Fresh Peach Pie from Blissful Roots

My mom had this fresh peach pie made for us when we went to visit a few weeks ago.  I hadn't had homemade peach pie in quite some time, and let me tell you I have been missing out!  This pie was everything you could possibly want in a homemade pie.  I honestly savored each and every bite because I didn't want to forget the taste.

This recipe came from an old Wellsville, Utah Ward (a congregation in our church) cookbook.  Barbara Woodward contributed this recipe (thank you, Barbara!).  My mom had never made it before, but is sounded easy enough and good enough that she gave it a try. Well, we were all certainly glad she did!

I don't know about you, but I haven't made too many pies in my day.  But doesn't this one sounds completely doable?  You could make your own crust, and I might be tempted to just so I could make some individual peach pies in jars, but with a store-bought crust, there's really not a whole lot of complicated work involved.  Even for a beginner cook, slicing, blending, boiling, and chilling are a piece of cake (or pie in this case!).

My mom made this pie with peaches she found at the grocery store, and it was amazing!  I believe the key to this pie is finding the perfectly ripe peach.  Grocery stores can be hit and miss, but you almost can never go wrong with local fruit stands. 
My local grocery store (Days) has peaches for 77 cents a pound this week.  I'm sure hoping I can find some good ones.  It's been over a week since I've had a slice of this pie, and I've developed a serious craving while typing up this post. :) 

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you found a little something worth your time.
