Drunken Peach Bourbon Pie
Today we got our Christmas Tree! Ghost was very excited as we were putting it up in the house, I think he thought we had brought in a giant stick for him to play with! Definitely keeping all of the ornaments up higher until he realizes the tree is not for him.
Yesterday we got to enjoy Friendsgiving at our friend Hillary's house. She made a delicious ham and a bunch of other food. She was so sweet and even made everything lactose free. Afterwards we played a HILARIOUS game called You Got Got which involves bouncing ping pong balls into solo cups and whacking another person's solo cup (empty) off the table, which THEN means they have to drink. I can't even begin to explain by text but we were all dying laughing.
My contribution to Friendsgiving was a couple of pies! I made the Apple Pie that I posted here. I also tried a new recipe from Gimme Some Oven and it is awesome! I love bourbon and I love peaches AND I love pie, sounds like the most perfectist thing ever! This pie was devoured so clearly it is something you should try at home :)
- 5 cups thinly sliced peaches (I used fresh frozen organic because fresh ones are not in season)
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- pinch of nutmeg
- 2 tsp. lemon zest
- 1 tsp. lemon juice
(Yup, I fresh squeezed it & zested it!)
- 1/4 cup Bourbon (I used 12 year Elijah Craig)
- 1 Tbsp. butter replacement
- Almond milk & sugar for washing the crust
- Dough for double crust (Short on time, Pillsbury like me! - or try my homemade recipe)
- Preheat oven to 400F
- Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a large mixing bowl
- Now, toss in the peaches and cover evenly
- Add the lemon juice (sprinkle evenly)
- Add the bourbon and toss so that the peaches are evenly covered.
- Place the bottom crust in your pie plate.
- Spoon the peaches into the pie crust, try and even out the top.
- Dot the top of the pie with your butter replacement.
- Cover the peaches with the second pie crust and seal, make sure to cut slits for venting!
- Brush the crust with your almond milk & sprinkle on sugar.
- Bake at 400F for 30 minutes
- Reduce the heat to 350 and bake for another 25-30 minutes.
- Cook until your filling is bubbling and your crust is nice golden brown
- (Watch your crust & if it is browning quickly or early then cover it with tinfoil so it doesn't burn!)
- DO NOT forget to serve with vanilla Lactaid icecream, delicious :)
