Try it Thursday: Lazy Peach Pie

In case you have missed it, Peaches are a pretty big deal around these parts. I mean, Palisade is known as the Peach Capitol of Colorado. I would say the world, but I don’t know that I’ve had fresh Georgia Peaches.

 

One of my most favorite desserts EVER!!! Is Lazy Peach Pie. I got this recipe from a friend back in the early 90’s (1990’s not, 1890) as it was so darn delicious, the recipe is so stinking easy, there really is no reason not to have it every day of the week. I love it best when it comes out of the oven, but WARNING! It’s HOT! And I have such a time waiting for it to cool enough, 90% of the time, I burn my tongue and it doesn’t even upset me. It makes for great left overs too! However, most times, there are no left overs. I may have to start making them in secret! 
Lazy Peach Pie
Ingredients:
1 stick of butter (can use margarine, but why?)
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of All Purpose flour
3/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 quart peaches or other fruit, undrained
***I used my freshly picked peaches from the trip to Palisade the day before. 
I used 5 large peaches, skinned and sliced
1/8 – 1/4 cup sugar (brown or white, I used brown this time)
2 Tablespoons lemon juice 
Mix all together and let set for at least 2 hours. 
(should have taken a photo of these, but I didn’t..whoops)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Chop up butter stick into smaller cubes and put in 9″ x 13″ baking dish, then into the oven. (**This will melt while the oven is heating up. If you forget to throw it in the oven, no worries, just melt it in the microwave.)
Mix sugar, flour, baking powder, salt and milk in a bowl, until everything is blended.
Remove baking dish from oven and pour the batter into the pan.

Place peaches on top (I like to arrange them nicely) of batter
Pour juice from the fruit on top of the peaches.

Let cool at least 30 minutes before digging in otherwise, blow on it!! It’s HOT!!!
Serve with ice cream, whipped cream or by itself

August brings into sharp focus and a furious boil everything I’ve been listening to in the late spring and summer.
