Peach Pies!

     Hello lovely readers!  I mentioned in this post that I recently got a whole bunch of peaches and had to find something to make with them.  I decided to make a bunch (4!) of peach pies and give some to various family members and, of course, keep one for my house, lol! :)  My mom brought one to my sister's house when she had some people over and everyone who ate it loved it; I gave one to my dad too and he ate half in one night! lol!  So, I thought I'd share it with you.  (A friend of my sister's often asks me when I'm opening my bakery, lol! Sorry, can't be a teacher and run a bakery at the same time! It's just for fun.) :)

     I used this peach pie recipe I found online and this pie crust recipe.  I added about 1 teaspoon sugar (per crust if making more than one) to the crust to make them a little sweeter.  When mixing the dough, make sure not to melt the shortening with your hands, which would cause problems.  For the pie, I highly recommend using fresh peaches if you can find them, they taste amazing!  Make sure to use them when they're ripe and a tiny bit squishy.  Also, I used a little more lemon juice than the recipe suggests about 1 tablespoon extra (per pie) but that's just my preference.  I made a lattice pie crust but you could do a double crust if you prefer (directions given on recipe for both).            
     That's all for now; let me know if you use this recipe how your pie turns out.  Anyone have a favorite pie recipe?  Comment below and tell me.  Thanks for reading, follow my blog if you'd like.  

P.S.: Does anyone have any requests for a recipe post on any specific thing they'd like to make, either baked goods or other food?  Let me know and I'll try and see what I can do. :)
