Peach Pie and Vanilla Ice Cream!!!!

I love this time of year in the Carolinas because it means peaches, peaches, peaches!! I had bought a huge basket of peaches, which I posted a picture of some of those luscious peaches in a previous post. I have been eating fresh peaches ever since and so has John. They are so good! Today I woke up and decided to make a fresh peach pie. There is just nothing like it with vanilla ice cream! Tomorrow night Megan and Ken are coming over for dinner but I don't think we can wait to cut that pie. There will be some left for tomorrow night for them though :)!

Fresh Peach Pie (this recipe is from the Betty Crocker Cookbook)

Pastry for 9 inch two crust pie
5 cups sliced fresh peaches
1 tsp lemon juice
1 cup sugar
1/4 c all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp margarine or butter

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Prepare pastry. Mix peaches and lemon juice. Mix sugar, flour and cinnamon, sir into peaches. Turn into pastry lined pie plate, dot with margarine or butter. Cover with top crust that has slits in it, seal and flute. Cover edge with 2 to 3 inch strip of foil to prevent excessive browning; remove foil during last 15 mins. of baking.

Bake until crust is brown and juice begins to bubble through slits in crust, 35 to 45 minutes. Enjoy!!

I just discovered your lovely blog and I look forward to popping by again for some more inspiration! I've just put the finished touches on my new blog ‘Coastal Style’ It will have lots of inspiration on beach houses, resortwear, summer food, travel and anything ‘beachy’. I had a lot of fun putting it together so maybe you would like to check it out if you have a spare minute.

I love peach so I have to try this! Usually, my fav pie is pineapple pie (with vanilla ice cream) - but this sounds just as great! :-)

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
