Fresh Georgia peaches in a flaky lattice crust with just a hint of cinnamon.
  • Pie Crust
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup lard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups flour
  • 6 - 8 tablespoons cold water
  • Filling
  • 6 - 8 large peaches
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 - 4 tablespoons cornstarch - see note
  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add your peaches. When it comes back to a boil, leave peaches in the pan for 1 minute. Remove and rinse under cold water. Remove peels and slice peaches into slices.
  2. Add the sugars, cornstarch and cinnamon and let set while you make the pie crust.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  4. Put the flour, salt, butter and lard in your food processor.
  5. Pulse until the butter and lard is incorporated.
  6. Add the water and pulse until the dough comes together. Divide in half.
  7. Roll our one of the halves with some additional flour to fit the pie tin you are using.
  8. Put the crust in the pan. Add the peaches.
  9. Roll out the remaining dough.
  10. Cut into strips and weave the strips to form the lattice.
  11. Brush the cream or milk over the top. Sprinkle with the sugar.
  12. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Turn down oven to 350 degrees. Bake for an additional 45 - 55 minutes. Be sure to place pan on a cookie sheet or have foil under foil to catch any of the juices while baking.
I add 3 tablespoons of cornstarch at first. If the peaches are real juicy then I add an additional tablespoon of cornstarch for 4 tablespoons total for this pie.
