p is for...

peach pie
fresh peach pie
mmm...my favorite

making homemade pie crust is a must-learn in this house
mrs mk was our first pie-baker
then mrs (miss) g took on the role
she took pie crust to an all new level

before she (miss g) left home, 
we made sure to get her recipe 
little sis had a private cooking lesson 

last week the peaches were finally ripe
so girl young-in went solo


big sis...watch out...there's a new girl in town
you taught her well

here's the recipe for the crust
it has shortening and butter in it
shortening for flakiness
butter for flavor
it is good

(and soon to be Abigail's) 
World Famous PieCrust
2 1/2 cup flour
1 Tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup FROZEN shortening cut into small pieces
pulse above ingred in food processor 9 times
move to separate bowl 
6 Tablespoons cold water
Add 2 Tablespoons water if needed.

Divide into 2 piles
wrap each pile in saran wrap
Refrigerate for 1 hour

~ enjoy ~

Hello Rene, how are you. On your previous post, do not feel bad that you're behind on your home renovation or blogger. I think we all have families, jobs etc. So many responsibilities and we rarely look good in everything. I'll tell you in the room where I work always desorganizado.Lo pick up and when I'm finished working again and you just accept the fact that I can not cover all the bases, I do my best, but there are days when you simply do not I can for fibromyalgia so Rene, do not worry. So that beautiful finish or appearance is your dessert. (use a translator and had put before you "that your foot looks beautiful ', so it is written in Spanish. Pe, ie, standing together is', translated pie.ja, ha, ha, ha, ha.. well Rene, is a pleasure to visit you, Rose Marie

Peach pie is one of my FAVORITE kinds of pies. Your daughter sure is a cutie.


podso said...

Lovely post! This looks exactly like the kind of recipe card one would find at your house!!!

Sandi said...

That pie looks wonderful and I LOVE peach pie!! I am not a fan of making pie, but I love to eat it. :)

A Cottage Muse said...

She is so beautiful...her smile is contagious! The pie looks yummy...I am soooo not a baker but am going to pass it on to my best friend and hope she'll make it for me!

Amy Kinser said...

Tell your sweet daughter that her pie looks fabulous and I think she rocks for being able to do what she did!!!

P is also for PRETTY & she is pretty! I love her shirt too.
I have never in my life made peach pie! Can you believe that. The hubs doesn't like pie so I never make it! Otherwise yours truly would eat the whole thing. oh boy.
Have a pretty day!

Faded Charm said...

She looks so proud of herself:-) I just made an apple pie yesterday for my husband's birthday. He never asks for anything, but PIE!!!

Hope all is well.

I love how you do this post with the recipe and pictures. It's so nice of you to share. I have yet to learn to do pie crust. I just buy one at the store. Can you believe it? I made one once but it turned out pretty badly and I never did it again. Probably just didn't bake it right? I think I'll try yours.

Thank you for the crust recipe..The pie looks delicious and your daughter is adorable..Have a great week..

EllenaElizabeth said...

Yum!!!! That pie looks delightful! Can I ask what the rusty nail brush/horse curry comb thingys are that you display cards and things in? I see them on a lot of american blogs and love them. Have never seen anything quite like them in Australia. Looking forward to hearing what this mystery object is. Love your blog too.

Gwendolyn said...

I love peach pie! I am too lazy to make it myself though. Yummy post!

Faye ~ Wild Rose Vintage said...

Looks delicious!! I love peaches and I will only make pie crust from scratch. I've never used frozen shortening tho...I'll have to try your recipe, I do like using both butter and shortening too. Thanks for posting it!

Ivy and Elephants said...

That peach pie sure makes my mouth water! I'm not much on making a crust, but I'll give your way a try. What a sweet girl, making pies on her own. Shows that her Mama raised her right! Enjoy both. The pie and the sweet daughter!

FredaB said...

Tell Abigail she could make and sell them for a pretty penny. Peach pie is one of my favorites along with strawberry-rhubarb. Can't beat a good home made pie.

I printed the recipe and am going to try it.

Tell her she did great.



Michelle said...

Pie crust should be a must-learn for all of us -- I'm still working on it!

Liz said...

Sweet! I make a mean peach pie myself. Sweet daughter has asked for lessons... :) What a great memory and tradition for you guys! :)


Burlap Luxe said...

Thank you Rene for your visit and taking the time to comment on our etsy art! I could not agree with you more, Kerrie is like non other when it comes to giving with her whole heart!

Your peach pie looks yummy! Your daughter is just adorable.
I am now craving some of your peach pie I should go make one of our own :)

Have a beautiful week!

bj said...

WOW...this looks sooo good. I do love fruit pies. I can't wait to try your crust recipe. I am hungry for a cherry pie...and a peach pie...and an apricot pie (my most favorite in the world.:))
Your photos, as always, are lovely.
When my "ship comes in" or I win the lottery, whichever comes first, I will buy that camera just like yours. :)

Curtains In My Tree said...

your daughter did so good and I'll take a bowl of that please LOL

❁Velma ~Down Our Country Road❁ said...

oh my, that is yummy looking! And the crust looks so flaky. Peach pie is my absolute favorite type of fruit pie. I'm going to have to give this one a try.
Thanks for sharing ;)
