Mom's Peach Pie

Here's my mom's recipe for Homemade Peach Pie. Enjoy!

3/4 cups sugar
3 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
5 cups peaches, peeled and sliced

Pie Crust:

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
7/8 cups shortening
1/2 cup water

In small bowl, combine sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt. Add peaches to a medium bowl. Pour sugar mixture over peaches and gently stir to mix.

In medium sized bowl, mix together flour and salt. Add shortening and cut in with a fork until crumbly. Add 1/4 cup water and mix, then add the rest of the water to finish mixing the dough. Dough should hold together in a ball. Divide into two parts.

To prepare pie, roll out bottom dough on floured surface the size of your pie plate. Add peach filling. Sprinkle with bits of butter. Go around edge of crust with fingers dipped in water. Roll out top crust, making slits so your pie can breath. Lay over peaches. Remove excess dough. Crimp edges. Again with fingers, spread 2 tablespoons of milk over top crust, then sprinkle with 2-3 tablespoons sugar. Bake in 375 degree oven for 45-50 minutes until crust is golden brown. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
