Creamy Caramelized Peach Pie

This pie comes from my Mom’s treasured recipe box.  Because this recipe uses only one crust and her recipe will make two crusts, I used her technique of rolling the second one out, placed it between parchment paper, rolled it, placed it in a Ziplock bag and froze it for a future use. See Maggie’s Pie Crust for ingredients and technique, use a premade one or your favorite pie crust recipe.

Chatty Advice

To ripen peaches place them in a brown paper bag at room temperature for a couple of days. On my Mom’s recipe card she says that if you are using canned peaches to drain the juice. She would use the peaches she canned late summer. However, you can use the kind from the store for a taste of summer anytime of the year!
