Peach Pie


This is a wonderful way to prepare pie the old-fashioned way in a cast iron skillet.


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup milk
  • 8 fresh peaches


  1. Sift flour; measure and add salt and baking powder. Sift again. Cut in shortening as for pastry. Add milk all at once, just enough to make a soft dough. Turn out on a floured board and roll a round piece 1/4 inch thick and several inches larger in diameter than the skillet used. Place dough in bottom of skillet, letting edges hang over the outside. Then fill with sliced peaches and sprinkle with a mixture of 3/4 cup sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1 tablespoon flour. Dot with butter. Fold edges toward center to partially cover the pie. Leave center of pie uncovered.
  2. Bake at 400 degrees F for 25 to 30 minutes.
  3. Serve warm or cold.
