My brother Logan turned 20 yesterday, and he requested that I make a pie for his birthday. I bought some white peaches, which are definitely not in season here in North Carolina- I think they were imported from Chile. They were hard as rocks, but I stuck them in a brown paper bag with an apple and some avocados for a few days, and by the time I needed to make the pie they were ready to go.
I rolled out two pie crusts, and placed one in the pie dish.
I collected the peach juice and reduced it in a small saucepan
I sliced the second crust into strips and made a lattice pattern.
I braided some dough scraps and adhered them to the crust with an egg wash.
Then I baked it on a pizza stone to make sure the bottom didn’t get soggy.
