2. Poach (optional) and peel the peaches. I’d never done this before, but it was a simple step that helps to peel the peaches easier. First, boil a pan of water. Second, make an ice bath in a separate bowl. Cut a small X in the bottom of each peach and then put as many peaches as you can in the boiling water for two minutes. Transfer peaches using a slotted spoon into the ice bath for one minute. Remove from ice bath and start peeling. The peach skin should just slip right off, but we had to still peel them slightly.
3. Cut up the peaches into 1/3 inch slices.
4. Toss peaches with lime juice in bowl.
5. In a separate dish stir sugars, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and corn starch until mixed.
6. Combine with peaches and toss until evenly coated.
7. Place the pie crust in the pie dish and fill with peach filling.
8. Put the top crust on – here’s were you can get fancy. We went with the lattice top, but you can also just put the whole top crust on and then cut decorative Xs or +s on top. For the lattice top, we spread out the crust and used the pizza cutter to slice even strips and then wove them together on top.
9. Brush pie with melted butter and sprinkle with white sugar.
10. Bake your pie! 20 minutes at 425 degrees. 30-40 minutes at 375 degrees. If the crust starts to brown, you can put tin foil on top and continue to bake.
What’s your favorite kind of pie?
2. Peanut butter dough. Combine peanut butter, sugar and eggs until creamy. Add chocolate chips.
4. In a separate bowl, combine all the dry ingredients.
5. Add dry mixture to the butter/sugar mixture until combined.
6. Add snickers and chocolate chips.
7. Take a teaspoon of each dough and combine, rolling gently into a ball. Place on parchment paper on a cookie sheet.
8. Bake for about 10-11 minutes at 350 degrees.
P.S. This looks pretty darn tasty too!
I made these cookies this weekend for a little get together with friends and they were a hit! Pinterest came through again. It always does. It’s not like I’m surprised. These cookies were really really really good. Like, win the lottery good. Like, give away your first born good. Well let’s not go that far, but they are deeeee-licious.
(FYI – cardamom is super expensive… like $12 for a little itty bit. So being on the spending diet that we are, I ended up using about 1/4 teaspoon each of cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, and allspice. It’s not an exact substitute for cardamom, but I think it did the trick.)
5. If desired, use a cookie cutter to cut hearts out of cooled cookies. I did this for a few, but decided to leave them as full cookies for the rest.
These are so fast and easy to whip up. I hope you enjoy!
