Conquering the Pie Crust

Pie crust and I have never gotten along. I can never get it right. Part of this is the fact that I am very picky about crust. It should be the best part of a pie if it is done right. I like it to be pretty, and flaky and thick, but not soggy. I have never been able to make it work out the way I want. Well, I ordered a bushel of peaches, and they were sitting in my pantry begging to be put in a pie, so I had to try and find a way to appease them and my crust-pickiness.

I did it. I found it. The perfect recipe that I can handle whilst still meeting all my criteria. This is not perfect, and I think I can do it better next time if I cut the strips thinner, but I am still happy with the way things worked out. I will be using this recipe again!

When I pulled it out of the oven, Sara saw it and said, "Mom! That ALMOST looks like a REAL pie!" Apparently I passed on my pickiness to my daughter. At least I was close...

Bahaha! It totally looks like a pie to me, but what do I know about anything? I would eat it.
