Pie was once more than a dessert. It was actually always available for breakfast. You could enjoy it with a warm cup of coffee or frothy milk. National Peach Pie Day reminds people that this tradition doesn’t have to end in the days of old. It can be revived in modern times.
Bake a peach pie and store in the fridge for a great start to each day.
The sugar and salt go into the food processor. Once the sugar is incorporated, pulse the ingredients together until they are well blended. Next, add the butter and lard and pulse again until you get a coarse meal texture. At this point, you should transfer the dough to a large bowl. Sprinkle it with ice water and stir it until it forms a crumbly dough. The dough should be turned out. Knead it for two to three times until it is smooth. Next, divide it into 2 disks. Wrap them in plastic and place them in a pie plate.
Once you are ready to make the pie, heat a saucepan of water and add ice water to another bowl. Make a mark in the bottom of each peach. Once they are browned, remove the skin. Once the peaches are cool, place them in the ice water. After they have cooled, cut them into 1/2 inch wedges. Toss them with the sugar, lemon juice, and flour. Let stand for 5 minutes. Place them in a chilled pie pan. Next, add the sliced butter to the top. Cover with another pie crust.
Place the mixture on a baking tray and bake for about 30 minutes, until it is golden brown.
