First things first…this is my first ever lattice top pie!
Takes another Baking Must Do off of my list too!
Now the flavor for this pie was decided because my dad said peaches sounded good, but just having peach raspberry salt water taffy while out in Cali I knew that the combo of peaches and raspberries was a good if not great idea!
The pie wasn’t labor intensive (besides the fact that I used a pre-made pie crust), rather just a lot of inactive time with the baking of it and then the cooling off of it. My family will tell you that was the hardest part because I was teasing them with good smells of the pie all day and yet they still couldn’t eat it until it had cooled enough.
Shout out to my friend Whitney who also had a successful pie making day – her flavor of choice – sour cherry – she too made a lattice top. Great friends think alike (:
Ingredients: (adapted from Delish)
6 cup(s) sliced and peeled peaches
1 cup(s) fresh raspberries (one container)
2/3 cup(s) sugar (would probably reduce this to 1/2 cup next time)
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
3 Tbsp. cornstarch
2 pre-made pie crusts (1 pkg. Pillsbury – the red box)
Let the pie crusts come to room temperature
Preheat oven to 375 F
Prepare the fruit (wash, peel, slice, etc.)
Mix the fruit, sugar, lemon juice and corn starch in a large bowl
Lay one of the pie crusts into an un-greased glass pie baking dish
Pour the fruit filling
Sprinkle with a generous amount of cinnamon
With the other pie crust you can either lay it over your pie and flute the edges – making sure to leave 6-8 slices for the pie to vent or…
To lattice top the pie, cut the second pie crust into strips. Making sure to alternate every other over under (you can see this in the picture).
Be sure to secure the strips and to cut off any of the excess dough that hangs over the sides of the dish.
Bake for 15 min and then cover the crust of the pie with foil and bake for the remaining 40-45 min.
Your pie should be nice and golden and bubbly through the slots when it is done baking.
Let cool for a good hour to hour and a half – this will be the hardest part.
Cheers to pie adventures and I hope everyone had a Happy and Family/Friend Filled Memorial Day
