Fresh Peach Pie

Oh My !

 From as long back as I remember this was how my Mom prepared fresh peach pie. Every year since I'm married I have followed in her footsteps. It doesn't seem right not to. From the comments of the boys yesterday when they saw that I had made one they have come to enjoy this as much as I did when I was young. In Shawn words,"This stuff is THE BOMB!" and in Anthony's,"This stuff is AMAZING!"

The filling is not a stiff filling that will stand perfectly when cut and served and it can be used in a variety of desserts. Pure deliciousness!! I hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

1½ cups sugar
¾ cup clear jel, more if you want it more firm
a pinch of salt
1 pint water
1 pint 7-Up
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1½ ounces peach jello
fresh sliced peaches
whipped cream
2 - 9 inch baked pie shells

In a saucepan combine sugar, clear jel, and salt. Stir with a wire whisk.

Add lemon juice, water, and 7-Up.

Whisk over medium-high heat and bring to a boil, stirring until thick.

Add peach jello and stir till dissolved.

Allow to cool completely before adding lots of fresh sliced peaches. The idea is for the glaze to hold things together but not to have a bite where you have just glaze. So add plenty of peaches.

I think perhaps I have to make some pie crusts today. Maybe they will offer to clean and do laundry while I do this. ☺ Every woman needs a dream! ☺

Be Blessed!
