Love Of My Life Peaches n' Cream Pie

Some people find the love of their life in high school, others at parties and clubs, or even online...I, on the other hand found mine in my very own house. Fickle is a word often used to describe my heart, but my love for my moms peach pie will never die. Here I go again making these hyperbolic statements, but kids, I ain't kidding because this peach pie is outstanding. To be honest with you, I've never tasted a pie of my moms that I haven't fallen head over heels in love with. In fact, I even promised her I would give her the very official title of "Worlds Best Pie Maker" if I could put her recipe on my blog, a title she rightfully deserves. But out of all my moms delicious pies, her peach pie tops them all. The unique addition of the sweet sour cream and brown sugar mixture on top turns a classic peach pie into a Peaches n' Cream Pie, and turns me into one very happy lady.

19" unbaked pie shell
6-7 peaches peeled and sliced
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup sour cream
2-3 tbsp brown sugar

1. Preheat oven to 425º. Slice the peaches straight into the pie shell and spread them out evenly.

2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, sugar and sour cream. Pour evenly over peaches.

3. Bake for 12 minutes, then reduce heat to 350º. Continue baking until fruit is tender and sour cream mixture is set, about 40 min.

4. Sprinkle the top of the pie with brown sugar and return to oven for another 5 min. Cool to room temperature before serving.

Your mom does make the best pies! I remember her strawberry pie and I only had it once when I was a little girl-- it is still the best strawberry pie I have had to date!
