This peach pie is another test recipe for Julie Hasson at Everyday Dish. The lattice crust wasn't actually a part of the recipe, but I recently saw them make one on America's Test Kitchen and I wanted to try it for myself (they used a ruler when cutting the strips on ATK, so theirs came out a bit neater than mine). Peach pie just seems like a perfect summer dessert, although using my ancient oven that heats up the whole apartment probably doesn't seem like the perfect thing to do in summer. I had to use frozen peaches for this because we don't have much to choose from in the way of fresh peaches around here this year. Sadly, there was a late frost that killed off most of the peach crops in Georgia and South Carolina. The only peaches I've found in stores around here have come all the way from California. I tried one anyway, because I really love peaches, but it just wasn't the same. *sigh* Maybe next year....in the meantime, I'm good with this pie made from frozen peaches. It tasted great, and I imagine it would be even better with fresh peaches.
