The reason I wanted to start Cooking with Claire is because I have quite a few go-to recipes that I simply love and make over and over again. The Banana Ice Cream post was more of just something that I was totally fascinated with at the moment and had to try. But I'm assuring you that the rest of the recipes I put on here will be some of mine and Devin's all-time favorites :)
Fresh Peach Pie
It has been a while. Being out of town so much and just plain old being hot, pregnant, and tired has not led to very many good meals around here lately. BUT...peaches are on sale at Smith's/Fred Meyer this week for 88 cents/lb. And that's awesome, so you have to make this. This weekend!
Devin and I both grew up loving peach pie in the summer. This is my mom's recipe, as most of them are. The reason I'm using hers is because this crust is not your ordinary crust. It's moist, crumbly, and the saltiness of it goes SO well with the sweetness of the filling.
1. Mix the flour, sugar, and salt together. 2. In a measuring cup, mix the oil and milk together and then add to the dry ingredients. I used vegetable oil this time and I think I like it better with canola oil. 3. Using a fork, mix ingredients together right in the dish until moist enough to where you could form a ball with the dough. 4. Press the dough into the bottom and sides of your pie dish and bake for about 12-15 min @ 350 degrees. The crust should be dry to the touch - it doesn't get very "golden" until it's been out of the oven for a little while so even if it still looks kind of white, it's okay.
Place in the fridge to set for about 2 hours. Some things will affect how long this takes: If your crust is cool when you pour in the filling it will chill faster, I also think it sets faster if your mixture came to a full boil when stirring.
Serve with whipped cream!
