Frozen Peach Pie Filing
|Title:||Frozen Peach Pie Filling|
4 cups peeled, sliced or coarsely chopped fresh peaches
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 or 2 teaspoons lemon juice
Mix ingredients thoroughly and pour into an 8- or 9-inch foil-lined pie plate. Freeze immediately.
When frozen solid, remove from pie plate and wrap in foil or other tight-fitting wrap, using drugstore folds to seal completely. Label and store in freezer.
To make pie: Prepare preferred pie dough and line an 8- or 9-inch pie plate (whichever size you used to freeze the filling). Unwrap frozen peach pie filling and place in the pie shell; cover with a second crust. Seal edges; prick dough with fork. Bake at 400 degrees F for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F and continue to bake until crust is golden brown, approximately 45 minutes. Do not let pie filling thaw before baking.
