pie day

Today became a world wide pie day.  Even though I prefer crisp in taste and making, I decided to give it a try.  There were peaches local and they are so good.  I like them with yogurt.  I thought with a molasses cookie pie crust, a bit of honey, cinnamon, and ginger, a lovely pie would be made.  And it was.  My Beloved wanted seconds before I even finished my firsts.  It is a bit rustic looking but I do believe that was trying to work with the cookie dough in the heat.  I squished into a pie pan when my kitchen was hotter then outside.  It was above ninety outside.

Peach Pie with a Molasses Crinckle cookie crust

1 recipe molasses crinckles

2 pounds peaches

1/4 cup honey

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon ginger.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Grease and flour a nine inch pie pan.  Mix the molasses crinckles per the recipe.


Pat the cookie dough into the pie pan.  I really only wished to use half but I used more of the dough.  I was fighting the heat.  Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven.

When the crust is baked, pull out and run a spoon over it to push down the poof.  Let cool for about 30 minutes.

In a large bowl, slice in the peaches.  Mix with the honey, cinnamon, and ginger.

Pour the peach mixture into the pie crust and bake for 40 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Serve.  I thought this was awfully rich but it would be good with homemade vanilla ice cream.

Like I said, I really prefer crisp.  It is probably what I will let it become next time.  But my Beloved likes it!
