Here's the peach pie recipe...

It's fast and very easy to make, and very, very good Mmmmmmmm

The only hard part about this pie is, it's kinds of falls apart, when you try to lift it from the pie pan after cutting. BUT!!! that's OK, after you cut it, use a pie server to to remove it, than use a spoon to get the remainder of the piece. OH!!! it is soooooo good [flower]

Recipe by Lorraine Serves 6

4 large cans peach slices, drained
1 cup oatmeal, quick
1/2 cup flour, * see note
1/2 cup sugar, * see note
1 stick of butter, not soft
1 1/2 cups nuts, half & pieces (Walnuts)
Tapioca, * see note
2 frozen deep dish pie crust, * see note

Pre heat oven to 400 with cookie sheet

Drain peaches in colander, but don't drain too long, you want some of the juice that's left on the peaches..I usually make the toping first.

Mix flour, sugar & oatmeal with fork Add butter, cut in with pastry blender
Add nuts and mix with fork (You don't have to break up the nuts)

Put peaches in pie shells, Make sure you pull up the sides of the pie shell, to give it more room for the topping. Take a spoon and pull the peaches to the center. so you have room for the topping, and don't be stingy with the nuts, I have even used 2 cups.

Add topping...Hold your hand around the pie, as your putting on the topping, so it won't fall out, and put it all on!!!

Put in oven on cookie sheet Bake at 400 for 35 to 45 min. Until the juice starts to bubble on the sides.


*Use only if you donít have the original ingredients

*Sprinkle tapioca on peaches & over bottom of pie shells (about 1 tab. on bottom of pie shell and about 2 tab. on the peaches).

*You can use bisquick instead of flour

*You can use brown sugar instead of reg. sugar

*Instead of 2 deep dish frozen pie shells, you can use 3 reg. frozen pie shells

That pie really sounds good, [thumb]

but so easy I could even do it!!! [Big Grin] [Embarrassed]
I may give this one a try!!! [Smile]

I'm rotten at the pie crusts, [Frown]
so I really shy away from this [Mad]
type of dessert, but I've never
tried the frozen pie shells,
I may just give this one a shot! [grin]
I'll bet the other girls here will think

Thanks Weezie, I always use "PetRite" frozen pie shall. I think that's how it's spelled, and it will say Deep Dish, for the deep pie shell. I think it taste almost as good as one made from scratch. [grin] I will take them out of the freezer to thaw, before I start. And before I add the peaches, I pinch the edge so that it stands 1/2 inch above the rim of the pan, to make more room. [grin]

I like to cook,
But dough or bread consistancy
items have never been my forte`........
I have never tried the frozen ones,
actually forgot they had those,
put it on my grocery list and if it's
not too big when I get to the end,
I'll grab one!!!

Yes Catlover,

You can use 6 cans of cherries, instead of peaches.

When you drain the cherries, add 1 cup of sugar to the cherries and mix....( do not use Cherry Pie Filling)

Than proceed with recipe [grin]

Hey this sounds yummy!!!! I'm not a huge baker really--funny thing is I got 6 cookie sheets for christmas.....they must be trying to tell me something.....I may just give this a whirl....frozen crust...of course....

Hey last time I made a pie I used a frozen shell--pillsbury I think, and everyone kept complimenting me on the crust...little did they know that I didn't make it....yep, I just smiled and said [Big Grin] Good trick my sis taught me, when someone compliments you never reveal your secret....I always get told by people that they love the color of my hair and one time this women stopped me in the mall to tell me and I said, hey you can have this hair color too....dye number whatever it sister said don't say Just say thank you...Guess I'm just usually too honest...she's rubbed off on me though.

Hi catlover, I never tried anything other than peach, and cherry, but you could try it.

It's the walnut toping that makes the pies, [grin]

I was in a hurry, when I was younger, so I tried to make my peach pie faster, so I didn't bother to take the time to thicken the juice to use in the pie, I just left that out, and no sugar in the peaches, just the cherry's, because their tart.

loz, "PetRite" frozen pie crust, is the next best thing to home made, not only that, it has it's own pie pan, no rolling pie crust. Their's 2 pie crust in a package. [grin]

Thank you all, glad you like it.

P.S. Their's so many good things in this recipe section, I think I'll print it all out, and make a cook book out of it, and put it in a folder. and call it the...Garden Helper Cook Book [Smile]

Hey lorraine that's a good idea.....if we could get most people to contribute their favorite recipe it'd be great!!!!!

I'll have to look for that pie crust.....sounds nice and easy, just like I like my baking to be...... [thumb]
by LF from MC on January 03, 2004 05:35 AM
Thanks loz,

There are two kinds of pie crust, you have the "Deep Dish" and "Regular" I use the Deep Dish. [grin]
by loz on January 03, 2004 06:11 AM
Great, when I go to the grocery store tom. I'll see if I can find the deep dish ones..... [wayey]

Thanks! [Smile]
