Rustic Peach Pie

Rustic Peach Pie

Simple reduces stress.  That statement is simple and powerful. Can I get an amen? Simplifying our lives is a way to weed out stress. Simple to me means wild flowers instead of roses, clothesline dried clothes instead of machine dried, quick suppers instead of complicated dinners. Simplicity is what draws me to rustic. Anything rustic: furniture, dishes, pies. Rustic Peach Pie is about as simple as you can get. Sweetened peaches with a dab of flour for thickening, top a single pie crust and the edges are turned up to partially cover the peaches. No crimping. No fussing with the crust or the filling. I used my butter crust recipe but a good store-bought crust will work just fine. If you use my recipe, omit the sugar in the crust and brush the top with half and half and sprinkle with sugar.

Now, if we want  fancy, we can call this Rustic Peach Pie a Peach Galette, but ,with  fancy comes a certain amount of stress. Let’s keep it simple.  Let’s try to make our lives simpler. Go out and pick a bunch of wildflowers and place them in a canning jar on your kitchen window sill.  Then, send me a quick note and let me know how that simple act chased away some stress.

We need to get back to simple. Can I get an amen?

Y’all come see us!

    Amen sista! I think I was born rustic. I like the simple things in life and that peach pie is one of them! Too many people in this world live in over complicated lives and are miserable. Simple is always best!

      Maureen,

      That’s exactly right! I don’t have the patience to fuss and primp baked goods. Rustic lets you get around that.

    you might call this rustic, but there’s no denying how delicious it would be! a pastry crust is a pastry crust, no matter how it looks, and your filling sounds delicious!
