Foodie Friday peaches and strawberries

Peaches and strawberries...sweet, juicy and oh so beautiful!
First up are the peaches...Yum!

It's a single crust Peach Pie.  All the elements of peach pie but I saved calories but using just a top crust.  Who would miss the botoom crust when they have this in front of them?  Hmmmm?

Topped with a scoop of Breyer's peach ice cream and still warm from the oven.

Here's what it looked like just out of the oven:

Still bubbling.  Do you see that flakey crust?   It's that Perfect Pie Crust I told you about here.

I made 12 pie crusts to put into the freezer in under 30 minutes for pennies compared to the purchased crusts and I promise, once you try it, you'll be hooked.  Each recipe makes 4 pie crusts.  I just wrap thoroughly, place in a zip loc bag and freeze until we get a pie craving.  A great time saver during the holidays too.
