  • Fresh Peaches
  • Sugar

  • Vanilla
sliced peaches, sugar, nutmeg, bourbon, and salt in bowls

For Crust:

  • Flour
  • Butter
  • Water

Instructions

In a large bowl, mx together all the filling ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Set aside.

Add flour and a few pads of butter into a small food processor. Make sure to continue to add the pads of butter a little at a time until there is no more butter left. Pour in the water and pulse until combined.

Place the pie dough onto a piece of parchment paper and roll out to a 6×8 inch rectangle. It should be about 1/8-1/4 inch thick.

Gently lay the pie dough over the peach filling. Cut off the excess dough and poke holes into the crust (or cut little shapes!).

Brush the top with milk and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake at 350 degrees for about an hour, or until the filling has thickened and the crust has turned a golden brown.
