Mothers are just always there for you, aren’t they?
People think I’m nuts, but I talk to my mom every day – often multiple times per day. We chat about all the simple things in our lives. It makes me feel like I’m close to her, even though I’m really pretty far away.
I’ve mentioned before that my Mama is a wonderful baker. I grew up with delicious and fresh baked goods around the house. She doesn’t bake as often now, but she’s got tons of recipes ideas, so when my creative cooking juices aren’t flowing, I give her a call.
Recently, I was trying to come up with a dessert for a dinner party. I had a frozen pie shell and wanted to use it (if only to make room in the freezer). She immediately had the perfect idea – Peach Pie! It was unique, tasty and the presentation was amazing… but unfortunately I forgot to snap a picture before digging in!
- 1 frozen pie crust, cooked according to package instructions
- 1/4 cup corn starch
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1 small package of peach jello
- 2 peaches (or nectarines) – they must be ripe!
- Slice peaches and arrange in a pinwheel in the cooled pie shell. Place middle four ingredients in a small pot and cook, stirring frequently, until thick & clear. You’ll know when the change takes place. Pour mixture over the peaches, making sure to cover everything. Refrigerate until set. Slice and serve with whip cream.
Oh how I wish I’d take a photo of the finished product! It looked amazing. My Other Half suggested that canned, sliced peaches might be better because they’re softer, but I don’t think it matters. This is an impressive recipe for sure! Thanks for the idea and recipe, Mama!
