Coastal Pie

I am back from vacation but trying to retain my zen-vacation-mindset. I am eating excessive amounts of butter-y baked goods to ease back into the work routine.

I baked a quick peach pie and attempted my first ever lattice-top (I know, such excitement). I cheated and whipped out my favorite (shh- store-bought) pie dough (thank you TJs). I proceeded to crimp my edges and dot my i's. Once my pie crust was ready to go I cut 5 ripe, but still firm-ish, peaches into chunks. I tossed the peaches with 1/4- 1/3 cup of sugar, 1 tablespoon flour, the zest of one lemon and a squeeze of the juice.

I added my filling into the pie crust and set to work building my lattice. For a lovely little slide-show from Bon Appetit on how to make a lattice crust (I always thought you just laid the strips on top of one-another... didn't really think that one through) click here. To finish the pie I popped it in to a 350-degree oven for about 45 minutes.
