This pie won second place in a pie contest this weekend (out of 16 entries). It missed first place by one point. :-) I made it over coals in a dutch oven, but I'll turn it into an oven-baked pie as best I can. I'm going to make at least one more before I can no longer get good peaches.
FRESH STRAWBERRY PEACH PIE
Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
3/4 to 1 cup sugar, depending on sweetness of fruit
1/3 c. all purpose flour
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
pinch of nutmeg
4 large peaches, chunked, 2 c. sliced fresh strawberries (1 pt.) cut in halves
1/2 tsp lemon juice
Use any good pie crust recipe and make as usual except add 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 tbs. suger to the dry ingredients. Instead of a top crust I cut out a large strawberry shape (think heart except flat on top), added a few leaf shapes up top and poked holes in the crust. Sprinkle this with a little sugar if you like.
Combine fruit mixture in large bowl. Spoon filling into pastry-lined pie 9 inch pie plate. Add top crust. Cover edge with foil. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove foil. Bake 30 to 40 minutes or until crust is light brown. Cool until warm for serving.
