It’s that time of year here in Florida where you can’t drive on a major road and not see a sign for fresh Georgia peaches. We are lucky to be a neighboring state. Georgia also grows delicious pecans so I decided to try to use them both in a dessert. My oldest son’s favorite dessert is pecan pie which he usually gets only once a year at Thanksgiving, so I decided to lighten it up with the fresh peaches and make it into a summer dessert. Turned out delicious and best of all this recipe doesn’t contain any corn syrup.
Peach Pecan Pie
1 9″ ready to bake pie crust
1/2 c melted butter
2 T flour
1 c brown sugar
1 T milk
1 t vanilla extract
1/4 t salt
3/4 c pecans
1 c fresh peeled and diced peaches
Beat eggs with a whisk in a large mixing bowl, add melted butter and continue whisking. Stir in flour, sugar and salt. Add milk and vanilla and then stir in peaches and pecans.
Pour into pie shell and bake 45 minutes. Tent with foil if crust starts to get too brown.
It is done when sides are set and there is only the slightest jiggle in the middle
Let cool and serve with whipped cream if desired
