Peach Pie

I really love homemade fruit pies.  This is one of the reasons I really love the south, because it reminds me of things like cherry pie.  Now you all know I don't bake.  If I make a dessert it is what one calls a chef's dessert - i.e. no baking! Well I love peaches and I went out on a limb and baked a peach pie last week.  I even made my own crust!

I followed this Georgia Peach Pie recipe (here) 
I followed the crust to a T, but I did my own version of what was inside.

Here is the dough.  I was worried about it at first, but once I put it in the fridge for 30 minutes it made a big difference.

For the inside of the pie I sliced up 8 peaches, I drizzled over them with olive oil, some salt, a little honey, juice from half a lemon, a teaspoon of vanilla, a dusting of ginger and 1 1/2 cups of sugar.  I mixed it all together.

Then I sliced up some butter (obviously)

I spread the dough out and put it in the pie shell and filled it with the peach mix and topped it with butter slices

I then put the top on the pie and baked it!

Oh it came out sooooo yummy, and the crust was sooooo good! Here is a close up of the inside
