Do you ever crave a good ol’ fashion pie? I do and this is one of our faves! If you have never had a Peach & Cherry pie, you don’t know what you are missing folks. This is a cowboy fave as most pies are……oh, and I love pie plates…*ahem*
- 2 Large ripe peaches, peeled and sliced
- 3 cups pitted fresh or frozen pie cherries
- 1/4 tsp. Almond extract
- 1 1/4 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 or 3 Tbsp. butter or margarine
- pastry for double pie crust (store bought or from scratch)
Put prepared fruit and almond extract into a large bowl. Combine sugar and flour; sprinkle over fruit, tossing to mix.
Prepare pastry and fill bottom crust with prepared fruit. Cut butter into small pieces and dot top of fruit. Place top crust over fruit, trimming to allow 1/2″ to tuck under edge of lower crust. Pinch and crimp edge. With a sharp knife, make slits near center of pie.
Bake at 400′ oven for 45-55 minutes or until crust is brown and filling bubbles up through slits. Allow your pie to cool before serving! YUMMO
