One Fresh Peach Pie- Our Entire Peach Crop

Our entire peach crop fit in one fresh peach pie.

We were thankful to get any peaches since four of our peach trees had peach leaf curl this spring.

(Peach Leaf Curl is a fungal disease where the leaves pucker up, thicken, curl and turn red. They eventually turn yellow and drop from the tree. These trees had no peaches. )

One lone tree remained untouched and produced a few, small peaches.

It might not have been a great peach crop, but it sure was a great peach pie!

Fresh Peach Pie

Mix in a saucepan: 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 1/2 tablespoons corn starch and 1 tablespoon white corn syrup.

Cook until thickened. Add 1/8 cup of peach jello and set aside to cool.

Beat 4 oz. of cream cheese with 1/2 cup of powdered sugar. Slowly fold in 6 oz. of Cool Whip.

Pour into a baked 10 inch pastry crust or graham cracker crust. Set aside.

Add the cooled peach glaze to 2 cups of peeled and sliced fresh peaches. Mix carefully. Spread over the cream cheese layer.

Refrigerate for at least an hour until set.
