Oh My Peachy Pie

I promise you I’m not only eating pie (2 pie posts in a row eeek)! My Grandpa has a peach tree in his front yard and the little tree has exploded with peaches this year. I mean LOTS of peaches, about 200+! There are so many peaches that the branches are breaking! So Dan and I have been assigned the task of picking all the ripe ones during our lunch break each day.

Happy to help!
Peach Pie

Crust
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
2 sticks butter, cubed and very cold
1/2 cup cold water, plus more as needed

-Mix flour, sugar, and salt in a mixing bowl.
-Add the cold butter to the flour mixture, shave off thin flakes of cold butter with a knife. Use a pastry cutter to work the butter into the dough until it resembles fine crumbs.
-Add water 1 tbsp at a time. Give the dough a few kneads with your hands so that it forms a rough ball.
-Wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill for one hour in the refrigerator.
-Divide the dough in half and roll out a round sheet for the bottom of the pie. Bake at 350F for 15 minutes.
-Save the rest of the dough for decorating the top of the pie.
