Levee Mercantile Flat Peach Pie

Ingredients

Crust

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup cold water

Filling

  • 4 to 5 ripe peaches, sliced
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Cream
  • Sugar

Instructions

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Crust: In a mixing bowl, cut butter into flour; stir in egg and water. Form into a ball and chill dough. Roll out into two 12- to 14-inch circles, about 1/4 inch thick.
  3. Filling: In a mixing bowl, combine the peaches, sugar, flour and lemon juice. Divide and place half the filling in the center of each pastry circle. Fold pastry over peaches and seal using a fork to crimp edges. Using a knife tip, cut a few steam vents into top of each pastry. Lightly brush pastry with cream and sprinkle with sugar.
  4. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 25 minutes, or until pastry has browned.
  5. Remove from oven and cool.

Yield: two flat pies, about 8-12 servings
