You’re a Peach!

Happy long weekend to my Canadian friends and family! It’s been a loooooong time since I posted two blog posts in the same week, let alone a couple days from each other. I feel like I’m on a bit of a roll! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I actually have another recipe that I’m sure you’ll enjoy – Peach Pie!! โคย Turnsย out it’s now Matt’s new favourite. Itย actually pushed his beloved strawberry rhubarb pie aside to second place,ย and that says a lot!ย To be honest when I told him I hoped to bake a peach pie with all of the peaches we bought, he eagerly washed, peeled and sliced each one to give me a head start on making it! This pie is SO yummy! I even made the crust (yay me!), which always seems like such a process (ugh!). I was more partial to Tenderflake crust, but after asking around I discovered that a homemade pie shell isn’t actually all that hard. And all this recipe called for is 4 ingredients! You can handle 4 ingredients, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ll walk you through it. ๐Ÿ™‚
