Fresh Blueberry Peach Pie


I rarely focus on American cuisine here on this blog, almost half of all my readers are from here anyway. But with the fourth of just this week I wanted to share a summer favorite. 

I used to eat this as a kid in the summer when peaches were ripe. That is the discrepancy with the sugar, if yours are really rip you might want less, if they aren't add more. I usually use about 3/4 a cup. 

One time I didn't have the lemon jello on hand (this is also good for people who avoid processed stuff) just make a lemon curd, bloom 1 Tbsp. unflavored gelatin in 1 Tbsp. water while making the curd. Stir it in the lemon mixture just before removing from the stove and stir well to combine before adding the butter. 

Pie Filling
1/2 - 1 c. sugar
3 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 c. water
1 (3 oz.) box lemon flavored gelatin powder
4 c. sliced peaches, peeled
¾ c. blueberries

Pastry Shell
Sweetened Whipped Cream

Combine sugar and cornstarch in a medium saucepan. Stir in the water. Bring to a boil over medium heat; stirring constantly, until the sauce is thick and translucent. Remove from heat, and add gelatin, stirring until gelatin dissolves. Cool.

Combine peaches and blueberries in a large bowl. Add gelatin mixture; toss gently. Spoon into prepared pastry shell.

Cover and chill 1 hour or until set. Serve with sweetened whipped cream.



Pastry Shell
1 ¼ c. all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp. sugar
½ tsp. Salt
½ c. slivered almonds, coarsely chopped
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 c. vegetable oil
2 to 4 Tbsp. Water
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl, stirring until dry ingredients are moistened. Press into a 9-inch pie plate.
Bake at 425° for 20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
