Behold a peach pie, hot from the oven in my hot little kitchen. This pie is rustic, not a lot of finesse .
Those ripe peaches needed to be used. And I had lard in the fridge. Used half lard, half butter in the crust. Did not use quite enough flour, so the crust was a bit tender, kind of patched together. No matter.
I did not peel the peaches. The skins lent a lovely rose color to the juice in the baked pie. Added a splash of good bourbon. It rounded out the sweetness of the peaches and sugars.
Pie making should be a common and natural thing. Not rare, not fussy, not anxious. As they say, easy as pie.
