Fresh Peach Pie

September 17, 2012

This recipe is so amazing, and delicious. Pie-crust creation intimidates me, and we are avoiding wheat in this household anyway, so this fits the bill in so many ways.  My friend Stephanie shared the recipe, and thinking of her awesome laugh and great sense of humour increases my pleasure in making this desert.  It tastes just like summer.

Base:

1 c ground almonds

1 c shredded coconut (I use unsweetened)

1/4 c sugar

1/4 c butter

Preheat over to 375 F.  Mix coconut, almonds, sugar and butter.  Press into a pie plate with fingers. Bake 10-12 mins.

Filling:

1 c sour cream

6 Tbs icing sugar (divided)

1 tsp orange juice

1 tsp vanilla

3 peaches (blanched, peeled and sliced)

1 c whipping cream

Whisk together 4 Tbs icing sugar, sour cream, orange juice and vanilla. Pour over pie crust.  Cover with peaches arranged attractively (hmmmmm). Whip cream and fold in remaining 2 Tbs icing sugar.  Cover peaches with whipped cream.  Chill both the pie and yourself.
