Peach Pie

Fresh Peach Pie
1 cup sugar
3 T cornstarch
1/4 to 1/2 cup water (depends on how juicy peach are)
Mix together then Add:
2 large mashed peaches.
Cook for 5 minutes until mixture boils, or in microwave until mixture is thick stirring after every minute (this is what I do.)
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 T butter.
Cool thoroughly. Slice 3 large peaches in a cooked pie shell (or if you are lazy like me a boughten shortbread crust). Pour cooled mixture over sliced peaches. I normally let it set for a little bit and then serve with lots of whipped cream. This is one of my favorite pies.
I bought a box of peaches from somone that Grandma knew. I cut them all up and put them in the freezer for ice cream/crepes, or just peaches and cream or whatever else. I've made jam before, and I love it, but Aaron prefers strawberry. Besides, I don't have a freezer big enough to store jam. :)

This looks yummy. I have a pie topping recipe that I bet would be good on this. It's a crumb topping. I'll have to make it and post it sometime.

Looks delicious. I'll have to give it a try (with a store bought crust!)
