Today marks my sixth blogiversary. I started up this site on August 19th, 2004. It began under the name “Paige’s Kitchen” and was basically just a way to archive my recipes and share them with friends. With the addition of WordPress and some splashy colour photos, the blog became what it is today. It’s been quite the adventure, and I look forward to seeing where I go with it in the future.
Now go make some peach pie.
1 cup white flour
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup butter
4-5 tbsp icy cold water
2 peaches, peeled and cut into chunks
2 nectarines, cut into chunks
4 apricots, cut into chunks
1 cup raspberries
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup white flour
1 tsp ginger
In a large bowl, mix together the flour and salt.
Cut in the butter with a pastry blender until the largest pieces are the size of small peas.
Add the cold water and toss together gently with a fork.
Turn the pastry out onto a floured counter and gently knead into a ball.
Roll the pastry out into a rough circle and slip into a pie plate.
In another bowl, stir together all the fruit and filling ingredients.
Dump the filling into the pie crust and flip over the edges, leaving the middle of the pie exposed. (see below)
Bake for 40 minutes at 375º or until edges are golden brown.
Let cool for at least 15 minutes before slicing and serving with ice cream.
