I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to participate in this week’s Baked Sunday Morning project since my kitchen is a mess right now. I’ve had a working range since Thursday, but no sink for the past week – this isn’t a major remodel, but we replaced lower cabinets, counters, range, hood and dishwasher. Cooking without a sink is really difficult and no fun. Thankfully our friend and neighbor Assana has a beautiful kitchen that she generously offered up to me. Plus it was a fun Saturday, hanging out three doors down, relaxing and baking.
This pie is anything but beautiful. Matt from Baked says it’s an acquired taste – I can see why he says that, but I like it. It’s kind of refreshing and different, and I like the combination of brown sugar and peaches. I used fresh peaches from the farmer’s market, plus the Baked crust is a dream to work with and always turns out well. Aside from dicing a few peaches, the pie is very quick to make and smelled great while it was baking. The creaminess comes from sour cream, and there’s a bit of honey in the filling also. I used a fabulous coconut honey from Wao Kele Honey Company that we brought back from our trip to Hawaii last week (with Dan and Assana!).
