I always use the same recipe for the pastry. It really is tried and true and I only use Crisco shortening too. I am tempted at times to try a different one, but then think, if it ain't broke why fix it. The post when I talked about my fresh Blueberry Pie with pastry recipe is HERE.
These peaches were smallish so I used all the ones you see here. These are free stone and the flesh pulls away from the pits easily.
Here is what I mixed with the sliced peaches...
1/3 cup sugar (these were very sweet peaches)
1/3 cup flour
a tsp. of cinnamon
a tablespoon of lemon juice
Interesting fact about peaches: Prehistoric and first cultivated by the Chinese, peaches symbolize immortality and friendship for them.
Hubby says they symbolize good eating to him.
