Happy Post 4th of July. I hope you all had as good of time as I had. I’m at home in Oklahoma to see my brother get married tomorrow. So far at home I’ve gone on two runs with my puppy dogs and spent plenty of time with my little niece.
Yesterday I also spent some time in the kitchen baking pies with my grandma and mom. As far as I’m concerned my mom is one of the best bakers around so I could definitely learn a few lessons from her. Peaches are in season now so we loaded up on some fresh peaches from the farmers market.
Fruit pies are easily made vegan and most recipes do not even need to be adapted. This one is un-edited from mom’s original except a vegan crust and vegan butter. Once your get past cutting up the peaches which can take some time this pie comes together pretty quick.
Blending a bit of sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg with the fresh peaches coated in their own juices brings out the natural sweet taste of the fruit. I seriously couldn’t believe how simple this recipe was. You could use frozen peach slices but that juice the slices make when you’re pealing and slicing really makes a nice nectar for the spices to mix with.
The crumb topping is not only easy to make but it is very forgiving looks wise.
