Oweetis frye's fresh peach pie

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
4 cups Peaches, fresh, sliced
4 teaspoons Lemon Juice
1¼ cup Granulated Sugar
2 cups Flour
¾ teaspoon Salt
⅔ cup Lard
3 tablespoons Tapioca
¼ teaspoon Salt
2 tablespoons Butter
4 tablespoons Cold Milk Or Water

THE FILLING

THE CRUST

*Preheat oven to 425 F.

1. Make the filling by gently tossing the peaches, lemon juice, sugar, tapioca and salt together, in a large bowl. Set aside for 15 mins to let tapioca soften.

2. Make the crust, by combining the flour and salt and cut in the lard with a pastry blender until the largest lumps are the size of small peas. With a fork, mix in enough cold milk or water to make a smooth dough.

3. Divide the dough in half and roll out the bottom crust; fitting it into an 8- or 9-inch pie plate. 4. Place the filling in the pie and dot with butter. Roll out the top crust and place on the pie, crimping the edges to seal. Cut decorative vents and bake for 10 mins, then lower the heat to 350 F and bake for another 30 mins, or until crust is nicely browned.
