Who Said Peaches ...... Peach Pie Day

Have you ever heard of a Persian apple?? You may not have since the title of this fruit has changed through time. If you have heard of a peach though then you know what a Persian apple is and a most unique trivia question as well.

If anyone uses the term "You're a real peach" to describe you then know that you are very sweet to them. This term originated from the tradition of giving a peach to the friend you liked.

3 cups canned sliced peaches, drained, reserving the syrup
1/3 cup of the reserved peach syrup
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
2 Tablespoons butter
1 Tablespoon Heavy Cream
1 Tablespoon Raw Sugar

Prepare your pie crust using your choicee of pie crust.

Place the pie shell on a baking sheet just in case the filling bubbles over (I hate having to clean up a mess in the bottom of the oven.). Don't poke any holes in the bottom of the pie shell or you'll have a soggy bottom crust. Pour the filling into the pie shell.

Spread the filling evenly over the pie.

how to bake a pie
Cut slits in the top of the pie to allow the steam to escape. Placed the pie on the bottom rack of the oven. This will ensure that the crust cooks quickly. You don't want your bottom crust to be soggy.

Bake in the preheated 400° F oven for 45 minutes. If your crust begins to brown too quickly, you can always cover the edges with aluminum foil.
