A few months ago I had the privilege of taking a pie baking class with the amazing pie crust whisperer, Kate McDermott . She taught us some very useful tips in creating a perfect crust. I’ve been wanting to make a pie on my own since the class, and I finally got the chance. Since peaches are in season and divine right now, a peach pie it had to be!
I did well in Kate’s class but I had the help of her lovely instructors. I’m a great cook but I give myself a C- in baking. And pie crust are just down right intimidating. I faced my fears of screwing up the crust, began chanting Kate’s “just chill” motto and got to baking!
I’m happy to report my peach pie was a success! I have a little work to do as far as ascetics but the peaches were perfectly cooked and the crust was a buttery, flakey delight!
