Individual pies filled with an extraordinary pie filling of diced fresh peaches, ginger, brown sugar, and finished off with a crumb topping.
Hello my dears!
You know that moment when you convince yourself that it’s the back pockets on your jeans that are making your bottom “look” larger? Yeah… That’s the moment I am having right now. And it has absolutely nothing to do with this Ginger Peach Pie. Or Pies. NOTHING! To keep a FOOD blog, I need to blame it on something other than my hungry-for-more-peach-pie self.
So. Peaches. They are just about to leave us. Fall starts like in two weeks. No more peaches, cherries, strawberries… oh Lawd, that sounds depressing!
Let’s change it up.
You know what I’m really looking forward to? Halloween! I am not the biggest fan of that particular Holiday, but I do enjoy dressing up my daughters in fun costumes. Ana is in that princess stage, so we are still good. No witches here. Also, Aleksandra is just too little to have a say, so I am going to put her in a pumpkin suit. Pumpkin suits look adorable on babies.
I’m also looking forward to going apple picking next week! EEEK! That’s always a great time. And it means that you and I will get to have more pie! YAY!
But this pie… it is exactly what I wanted. That crust… not homemade. I wanted to make things easier for you and I. It’s the weekend – you can handle the work, but I’d rather you not. I’d rather you make these pies that will take all of 10 minutes to prep and then go and enjoy them with family, friends, kids, husbands, better halfs… go be with them. They deserve you and you them.
BTW, (can I say that? do people still use BTW in chat talk?! I DO!) don’t forget the ice cream. Somehow, pie always needs ice cream. Especially a warm, fruity, gooey pie…oh how I wish I had one more pie!! I need to make some more this weekend. These were just too, too good. Honest to goodness. They may be very simple to make, but the flavor is just plain amazing.
