PREP TIME: 45 MINUTES PLUS 1 HOUR CHILLING
COOK TIME: 55-60 MINUTES PLUS 1 HOUR COOLING
MAKES: ONE 9” PIE
2½ cups flour
1 t sugar
½ t salt
1 cup cold butter
1 T rum
¼ cup cold water
1 cup sugar
¼ cup flour
½ t cinnamon
¼ t nutmeg
5 cups peaches, peeled, sliced, and stoned
2 T water
2 T butter
1. To prepare piecrust, combine flour, sugar, and salt in a food processor or medium bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal.
2. While stirring mixture, pour in rum, and then slowly add water until mixture forms into a ball.
3. Shape into two discs and chill for 1 hour.
4. Once the dough has chilled, preheat oven to 400°F. To prepare the filling, combine sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Stir in peaches.
5. On a floured surface roll out one disc of dough to line the bottom of a 9” pie plate. Pour the filling into the pie plate. Sprinkle water over the pie and dot with butter.
6. Roll out the second disc of dough for the top. Shape edges according to preference. Cut slits in the top of the pie, and place on a baking sheet.
7. Bake for 55-60 minutes, or until the crust is light golden brown. To prevent the edges from over-browning, use a piecrust shield or aluminum foil about halfway through baking. Remove from oven and cool for at least 1 hour.
