Now, we actually have a national pie day (Jan 23), which is celebrated with, well, pie. But since you can't have too much pie that's what we do for Pi day also. It sure beats doing math to celebrate. So, in honor of the day, I'm sharing my award winning peach blueberry pie recipe.
This makes enough for 2-3 pies depending on size. You can half the recipe, add the whole egg and maybe a touch more flour.
4 C flour
1 ½ C shortening
2 tsp salt
2 TBSP sugar
½ C water
1 TBSP vinegar
Mix flour, salt and sugar. Cut in butter. In separate bowl mix water, vinegar and egg. Add to dry ingredients.
Persoanlly I mix this by hand with a pastry blender. I know others who use a mixer and it turns out fine, but I like the texture from hand mixing better. It's more flaky and light.
Peach blueberry pie filling (one pie)
4 C peaches
1 C sugar
¼ C flour
Cinnamon I had a big dash of it, you can add as much or as little as you like.
Handful of blueberries.
I add a 1/2 tsp or so of almond flavoring, but that is not required. (I can't imagine why you wouldn't want to though)
Happy Pi day!
