Posts Tagged ‘Peach Pie’

When Mr. and I went on a week-long road trip, ultimately reaching Crater Lake as our south-most point, we stopped at many cities in Washington and Oregon. We made a few trips to local grocery stores and whipped up some tasty bites in the hotel rooms, but we also checked out a number of eateries, including Beckie’s in Union Creek near Crater Lake.

Crater Lake

First of all, let me show you Crater Lake. This is a volcano crater turned lake, with water of this gorgeous deep blue hue. This is the deepest lake in the U.S. and is considered to be the cleanest large body of water in the world. We drove around the rim, spending a number of hours hiking and checking out the various viewpoints and taking in the mesmerizing 360 view of the lake. No wonder Travel Oregon names it one of the state’s seven wonders! If you haven’t been, add this to your list. It’s worth it!

And what do you do when you have a lot to go through? You can freeze them, canned them, give them away…for us, we made pie!

Recipe

I have shared the Simple Pie Crust Recipe with you before and sure enough I used it for my crust. The recipe will make a double crust for a 9in pie, plus some depending on how thin you roll it.
