She's Leaving on a Jet Plane Pie

It is with some sadness, but also with great excitement and joy that I am announcing that my sister and co-author of this Pie Inspired blog is leaving on a jet plane bound for the country of Cambodia! Heather will be volunteering at the She Rescue Home in Phnom Penh, Cambodia for at least six months. The She Rescue Home is a secure haven for young Cambodian girls who are at risk or have been rescued from being human trafficked. Heather has such a heart for helping the victims of human slavery. She is incredibly excited to have the opportunity to love and care for these precious girls! I am so blessed by the enormity of her heart and her willingness to literally go out into the world and be the hands and feet of Jesus. I encourage you to check out the She Rescue Home web site and also feel free to follow Heather's blog as she journals about her experiences in Phnom Penh. I'm going to also add the links to these web sites on our blog side bar under the heading "Pie Can Change the World." Heather raised a chunk of the money she needed to volunteer at the She Rescue Home by selling the pies she blogged about. Pie literally can change the world!

We went to see Heather last weekend before she leaves for Cambodia, and of course we knew we had to make one last pie together before she left. She's not sure if she will have the ingredients or equipment to make pies in Cambodia or not, but she's going to try! She's hoping maybe she can teach her girls how to make pie! :-)

I'm going to miss you, sissy, but I am so proud of you!!!

Ingredients:

2 Easy Peasy Pie Crusts + 1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 cans drained peaches
1/2 cup brown sugar
4 Tbls flour
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 Tbls butter

Directions:

1. Make your Easy Peasy pie crusts (we added 1/2 tsp of nutmeg). Place one in your pie pan. Set the other aside to top your pie.

2. Mix the peaches, brown sugar, nutmeg, and flour together.

3. Pour into your waiting pie crust and dot with butter.


4. Top with the waiting pie crust and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Heather carved a jet plane in the top to vent the pie.

5. Bake at 400 degrees for 50 minutes.


The Verdict:

This pie was delicious and oh so easy!! I am going to sprinkle cinnamon sugar on the top of my double crusted pies from now on! It was so pretty...it kinda added a 'sparkle' to the pie. We also had homemade blueberry ice cream on top of this pie. It was wonderful!!
