Strawberry Peach Straight from the Farmers Market Pie
Make your favorite pie crust, this is my favorite one.
4 or 5 ripe sweet smelling peaches, drop in boiling water for 1 minute, remove skins, then slice
2 to 3 baskets of strawberries, halved
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
To get a nice golden brown to your crust mix 1 egg yolk with a splash of water and brush onto crust.
This can be an 8 inch or 9 inch pie. I like a very full pie so I made an 8 inch one.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Combine strawberries and peaches with sugar. Pour mixture into a strainer with a bowl beneath to catch juices. It can sit for about an hour. Stir occasionally.
Roll out dough. Place half into pie dish, leave edges hanging. Refrigerate for 15 minutes. Combine fruit with cinnamon, nutmeg and cornstarch mixing gently. Spoon fruit mixture into prepared pie dish. Roll out the other half of the dough and slice into 1/2 inch wide strips. Use the strips to create a lattice. Fold the bottom crust dough up and pinch all the way around tucking in the lattice edges, trim strips beforehand as needed.
Brush the egg mixture onto the lattice strips and edges.
Bake pie on bottom rack for 20 minutes. Then move to the middle rack and decrease temperature to 350 degrees. Bake until your crust is golden brown and the fruit is thick and bubbling, about 40 minutes.
I've set a goal to bake 12 new pies in 2012...this is number 6!
