There’s nothing better than a ripe juicy peach in the summertime, at least I think so. The only thing better is maybe a peach pie. This summer I made fried pies and they couldn’t have turned out better. Smelling the freshly fried pastry dough with vanilla glaze took me back in time to when my Mom used to make glazed doughnuts. She would fry them up and while they were still warm dip them in a glaze which tasted out of this world!! I remember stuffing my face with them as fast as she could make them. I don’t mean to say fried pies are like doughnuts but the aroma is very similar. I found some locally grown peaches that were ripe and so sweet, perfect for a pie filling. I can’t wait to make more, maybe try some with berries, cinnamon apples or lemon curd.
