Another Pinterest Challenge post : )
I’m not much of a baker but that doesn’t stop me from pinning recipes for delicious baked goods. I showed tía Kim this recipe for tequila peach pie and she immediately wanted to make it. Side note: She is an awesome baker.
First, we checked the fridge for ingredients and luckily, we had most of them. Woohoo!
For the dough:
- 1.5 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 stick of cold butter (we had a little less but we tossed it in anyway – less butter is a good thing)
- a dash of sea salt
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vinegar
- 1 tablespoon of cold water
For the tequila peach filling:
- 2 tablespoons tequila
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 2 large peaches (I had 4 so I threw them all in)
- 2 tablespoons sugar
Side note: The original recipe also called for cornstarch and heavy cream. We took these things out because 1) we didn’t have any and 2) we didn’t want to eat this stuff anyway.
We split the tasks. Kim made the dough and I had the easy task of preparing the peaches.
After everything was made, we put them into the fridge to chill for 30 minutes (during which I started this blog post).
We don’t have a rolling pin so Kim had to pound out the dough with her hands. Check out those guns!
Then, I layered on the peach slices as neatly as I could.
When that was done, I folded the sides and it was ready for the oven…
Side note: In the original recipe we were supposed to brush heavy cream on the crust and sprinkle sugar and lime zest on top. We didn’t because we’re lazy.
Once complete, the pie is supposed to chill in the freezer for 15 minutes. Kim wanted to omit this step all together so as a compromise, we chilled it for 5 minutes.
Then we popped that sucker in the oven for 55 minutes. It was agony, smelling that awesome pie baking and not being able to eat it.
The verdict? Well, we don’t have one crumb of pie left : ) The crust wasn’t as flaky as we’d hoped but that’s because we didn’t have a rolling pin and Kim wouldn’t pound it out that thin. The tequila really enhances the delicate sweetness of the peaches. This recipe is a winner.
While we ate pie, we watched Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. When Draco got scratched by Buckbeak, Tío Tommy said, “He deserved that. You can’t just run up on Buckbeak like that.” Your dad’s favorite spell is “Ridikulus!”
Then, Kim and Tommy started arguing about whether or not Tom Riddle was in the Order of the Phoenix. It was hilarious.
