So I'm getting ready for Fair season. As of July 1st peaches have gone into season and that's the kind of pie that I feel I'm the best at making. I also happen to love peach pie. So if I make 20 of them I can tolerate to eat all twenty! I looked and looked for the peach pie recipe that won the blue ribbon at the Benton County Fair last year, but I couldn't find it.
So I've decided to just start experimenting. I think it will be fun. I remembered most of the recipe that I used last year. And my crust is in really good shape. I did hear a rumor that the judges at the state fair love the taste of a crust that has butter in it. But my pie crust has no butter. So, I'm trying to incorporate it into the fats that I already use.
This peach pie turned out really well. I think I want to add more sugar next time. But that's really my only gripe. I'm going to make another pie on Monday. In that pie I will add more sugar and I'm going to play with the crust and put butter in it. Yee-Um!
