Southern Peach Pie For Peach Lovers

Easy Southern Peach Pie

I wish I could go back to 1967-69. I would have paid a lot more attention to the way my Grandma made her peach pie. Maybe it was the eggs that came from the henhouse. Or maybe it was fresh peaches. I don't know what it was. But I know it was good. And if I would have paid just a little more attention, I would be able to duplicate it. But I didn't, and I can't.  But what I can do is give you a recipe that is sure to please anyone that tastes it.  In other words, I've never had anyone throw it on the floor. You can spruce it up with some ice cream when it's warm. And the leftovers from the fridge will make a perfect 'next day' breakfast treat. Just make sure that you put a slice away before you put it on the table. If you don't... you can just forget that breakfast treat. There won't be any left.

I'm gong to give pretty straight forward ingredients. Then directions on how to mix it all together and bake it.  I hope that's enough.  I've go a slice waiting for me and I'm not going to let it get cold typing into this computer.  I hope you understand. Something are important. Warm peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream is on the top of my list right now.  Enjoy

About Potato Chip Sandwich

According to some people, men can't tell time, can't follow directions and can't cook. That's simply not true. The owner and author of the site, me..  can cook. This site is simply a way for me to keep up with my recipes without putting it into my other 10 or so blogs. Everything is Google-ized, so it's connected to all my other stuff. I suggests you try the BBQ. This site gets it's name from road trips when I was in my 20's. By the time we would head home...all we could afford was a loaf of bread and some potato chips.
