Here is a recipe for a classic peach pie:

Ingredients:

  • 1 unbaked 9-inch pie crust
  • 6-7 ripe peaches, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon coarse sugar (optional)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Roll out the pie crust and place it in a 9-inch pie dish.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the sliced peaches, sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Stir until the peaches are evenly coated with the mixture.
  4. Pour the peach mixture into the prepared pie crust, and dot the top with pieces of butter.
  5. Roll out the second pie crust and cut into strips, then lay them over the top of the peaches in a lattice pattern. Press the edges of the crusts together to seal.
  6. Brush the beaten egg over the top of the pie crust, then sprinkle with coarse sugar (if desired).
  7. Place the pie in the preheated oven and bake for 45-55 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
  8. Remove the pie from the oven and allow it to cool on a wire rack for at least 30 minutes before serving.
