|Fresh Peach Pie with Jello Glaze|
My daughter had a gazillion peaches on her tree so we picked a bunch and took them home. Our peach tree, of course, did nothing but about 12 peaches again. What is fair in that? I hate my peach tree even though it is beautiful 90% of the year.

I found this recipe that I liked and tried. It is from Taste of Home. I have a magazine subscription to Taste of Home and it is fun to see the pictures of yummy food each month.

But this peach pie was mouth watering. I loved it! And I'm on a diet. Bad Pattie.
The glaze is so similar to Strawberry Pie Glaze I've made a few times. My recipe for Strawberry Pie is here. Once you have made a pie shell and baked it (I used Paula Deen's pie crust recipe but it is loaded with butter as you can imagine. I like Crisco (butter flavored) better I think for pie crust. It comes out lighter and not so heavy.
|These little "Peaches" are sure a treat for me to play with! We had a Family Reunion last weekend and it was fun to play at the park with all the relatives.|
|Pie Crust bake for about 10 minutes on 425.|
Then cool the shell and start making your glaze. It is 3/4 cup sugar, 1 cup water and 2 Tablespoons of Cornstarch. Boil for 2 minutes. Then take off heat and add 1 small box of peach jello. Whisk it for a minute until dissolved. Then chill for 10 minutes.

While it is chilling peel your peaches and slice them up. I did about 10 or 12 peaches. Some were bruised so I only used half of some. And some were small to medium. If you were using larger fruits you could get by with less. Use about 4 cups to make a yummy tall pie.
|This pie was soooo SCRUMPTIOUS! Fresh Peaches are now in season so TRY IT!|
Lay them over the cooled pie crust and then pour the glaze over the top. Chill for 1/2 hour. Then serve with whipped cream. This pie is truly divine. I ate 2 pieces. And that wiped out all the good work I did today dieting after dental surgery. Oh well. It was worth it. Yum.
