Fresh Peaches and Cream Pie

IMG_0505

It’s over 100 degrees in Portland this week and I baked a pie. In my house. Which has no a/c.

Wait, who’s idea was this? —>a statement I’ve heard a lot from my husband these last few days.

Let this be a lesson to show how dedicated I am to this blog of mine.

You’re welcome, America.

It could also prove my insanity. But that’s neither here nor there. Another topic for another day.

So, yes. Back to the topic at hand: I baked you all a pie. A delicious, refreshing, sweet and creamy pie.

If you think you can’t make pies, think again. This is like a pie recipe 101 for dummies. Anyone can make this and succeed because it is truly that easy. Just start with a premade crust and go from there. Or if you’re feeling a little a little risque, make one from scratch. Few ingredients, easy peasy steps and it comes out delicious every time! Just be sure to use ripe peaches. Do that one thing and you are GOLDEN.

Here’s how you make it:

First things first: make a pie crust and bake that sucker! This is a great recipe. Or this one is good too. Then, fill it with a cream cheese mixture {cream cheese, sugar, vanilla} and refrigerate whilst you work on the peach portion of this recipe.

Hello lovelies! Cut the cheeks off of these pretty lookin’ things and slice thin.

Like so!

Squeeze in a little lime juice and toss around. The acid prevents the peaches from turing brown.

Line them up all pretty lookin’ on your pie and that’s pretty much it!

Slice it up, add some whipped cream if you feel so inclined and give it a taste!

I tell ya, fresh and juicy summer peaches are the bomb!

  1. What a beautiful pie! I bet this could be made as a no-bake version with a premade graham cracker crust for those less dedicated than you but would love some pie πŸ˜‰ (You know, someone like me.)

  3. This looks so refreshing!
    The only way I can bake right now is to drag our large portable a/c from our bedroom to our living room every day. I’m praying for rain right now πŸ™‚

  4. Simple fresh desserts are the best. I almost feel bad cooking or mixing up fruit with anything else right now. It is just so good on its own, and especially good on top of this cream pie- oh my!!

  7. How do you not have ac? Growing up in oklahoma I just don’t understand this. Does it not normally get above 80?

      Portland has very mild weather the entire year except for a couple weeks in the summer. Most homes don’t have ac here. It usually gets up to mayyyybe 90 in late July/early August, but this summer has been particularly hot.
