Sweet Treat Tuesday: Peaches and Cream Pie

It is the sweetest day of the week!! Sweet Treat Tuesday!

This week’s feature is Peaches and Cream Pie

I discovered this recipe off of Allrecipes.com and this gal claims to have won 5 blue ribbons and a best in show for this pie. You can judge for yourself… here is what you need:

Ingredients:

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 (3 ounce) package non-instant vanilla pudding mix
3 tbsp butter, softened
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1 (29 ounce) can sliced peaches in heavy syrup, drained and syrup reserved
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup white sugar

1 tbsp white sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease sides and bottom of a deep-dish pie pan (10 inch is recommended, but I used a 9 inch without any problems).

Mix together flour, salt, baking powder and pudding mix.

Mix in butter, egg and milk.

Beat for 2 minutes. Pour mixture into pie pan.

Arrange the peach slices on top of the pudding mixture. Set aside.

In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Add 1/2 cup sugar and 3 tbsp reserved peach syrup. Beat for 2 minutes.

Spoon mixture over peaches to within 1 inch of pan edge.

Mix together 1 tbsp sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon and sprinkle over top.


Bake in preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.


Chill before serving.

Hint: Vanilla ice cream is the perfect compliment for this pie!

I wasn’t sure at first about the unconventional crust… it is more bread-like than traditional flaky pie crust… but it turned out to be delicious! A perfect dessert to serve in the summer…nice and chilly!
