So, I love summer because of all the beautiful stone fruits finally in season and something I’ve always wanted to make is fruit pies! I’ve always been a bit put off making the pastry because I don’t have a food processor to make simple pastry but thanks to the awesome people at Bosch I was sent a Bosch Food Processor Styline and I’ve got one to giveaway to my readers! So keep on reading for your chance to win!
It’s pretty darn sexy I can tell you right now! Everything is ridiculously easy to clean and weighing at 5kg it’s light enough that I can move it without swearing but heavy enough that I won’t worry about it toppling over if I’m mixing a heavy dough.
It even has a drawer to store the blades and attachments! Love not having to dig around trying to find the parts for an appliance!
Ready for a super easy recipe for a peach pie? This recipe is adapted from Foodie Crush. Note, if you want to make it even more simpler you can use a tin of sliced peaches instead of going to the effort of peeling and slicing the fresh fruit :P
2 cups plain flour
170g cold salted butter, cut into cubes
1 Tbsp caster sugar
1/2 to 3/4 cup ice cold water
1.5kg peaches (or 825g tinned sliced peaches)
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp allspice
zest and juice of one orange
1 egg beaten with 1 Tbsp milk
2 Tbsp caster sugar
First, zest an orange and set aside. Attach juicer to processor and juice orange and set aside for filling. Add 2 cups plain flour, 170g butter, 1 Tbsp caster sugar, orange zest and pulse 4-5 times until butter is the sized of small peas but do not over mix. Add 1/4 cup iced water and pulse on and off until pastry is just combined. Add more water 1 tablespoon at a time until dough comes together when pressed.
1. Roll out dough between sheets of baking paper. Knead a few times and divide into two discs approx 20cm in diameter and chill in fridge in cling wrap for 15 mins or until able to be handled.
2. For the filling, peel and pit the peaches and slice 1/2 inch thick. In the processor bowl, combine peaches with brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and orange juice.
3. Place one crust in pie pan, saving the second circle of dough for top of pie. Scoop the peaches but draining the liquid and pile high in the center.
4. Top with second prepared pie crust and cut four slits in the dough and brush top of pie crust with egg wash and top with sugar. Place pie on a baking sheet and bake for 50-55 minutes at 190 degrees. Allow pie to rest for about 30 minutes before serving.
TADAH!!!! YOU BEAUTY!!!!
Buttery crust! Sweet peach innards!
And left over pastry means mini peach pie! Yep that’s my ideal ratio of ice cream to pie :D
