I am trying to take advantage of all the beautiful summer fruits that are available this time of year and peaches are a big seasonal favorite. My dad picked up some fantastic fresh peaches at the farmer's market so I decided to try my hand at a Lattice Peach Pie.
For me, a pie is only as good as it's crust and since i've already found the perfect pie crust recipe and used it a few times I felt ready to try a lattice top. A lattice top is strips of pie dough woven across the top of the pie. The lattice makes a beautiful decoration but it also serves a purpose of allowing the juices in the fruit to evaporate so the end pie is not too soupy or mushy.
This simple pie recipe really lets the true flavor of the perfectly ripe peaches come thru, the only thing needed is a big scoop of french vanilla ice cream. Here is how you can make your own.
