Peaches & Cream


I just returned from a lovely vacation in Wolfeboro, NH with my boyfriend and his family. Naturally, much of the vacation revolved around nourishment, aka food. My boy friend's sister, Sarah and I were determined to make a delectable pie and agreed upon homemade peach pie. We learned two things, actually three:
1. use Julia Child's dough tart recipe (the French don't make pies)
2. use the Joy of Cooking peach filling recipe (so easy)
3. it's Ok to use unripe peaches because the fruit will bake and end up tasting delicious

It was so ridiculously yummy I can barely even stand it. For more decadence, we added vanilla ice cream AND whipped cream.
