A blog chronicling life as I live it. Recipes, stories, tips, whatever tickles my fancy. Hopefully within the pages you'll find some new ideas, yummy meals and a new friend. I love life, I love people and I love the relationship that I have with Jesus. I'm a mom, a wife, a friend, a daughter. Come join with me a cup of coffee or tea!
I purchased some peaches last week when I went grocery shopping. Then on Friday a Hispanic family stopped at the garage sale, bought some items and then sold me a 1/2 flat of raspberries. YUM! They were so good. I had bought the peaches because I wanted to make a peach pie or peach cobbler. After getting the raspberries, I remembered seeing a recipe for raspberry Peach Pie! We were going to dinner Saturday at friends so I figured that would be a perfect dessert...it was almost perfect...I'll need some help from all of you at the end. But for now, here's the recipe I found online. This recipe called for a streusel topping but I just used 2 pie crusts.
5 cups ripe peaches, peeled and sliced (about 5 medium peaches)
In a large bowl, combine juice, vanilla and flour. Whisk together. Add the brown sugar and stir till dissolved. Add the berries and peaches. Stir to coat. Pour into pie shell and top with upper crust. Or streusel topping if desired. Bake at 375 for 25 minutes or until the topping begins to brown.
The Yummy Ingredients. They peeled and sliced to nicely...though a few weren't quite ripe enough...I was a bit worried..but that was the least of my worries.
I love how pretty peaches and raspberries look together.
Almost ready for the oven.
Looks pretty....here's where the problem came in and why I didn't take a picture of a beautifully sliced pie! It was so runny!!! For whatever reason it didn't thicken up, and that's the second time I've made a pie with berries (I followed the recipe) that turned out runny. It's bad enough that I have a hard time making crust (which is why I cheated and just bought a crust), but they are always runny. It was really good served in bowls with vanilla ice cream.
I need your tips on what to do about this dilemma. I'm bound and determined to make a great pie crust and a non-runny berry pie. I will keep at it till I get it right. But please give me what works for you... Okay, no more posting for today. I'm going to work on another project...or go play with my laptop....or both.
