Peach Meringue Pie

Line a pie plate with a rich pie crust, cover thickly with peaches that have been pared and sliced fine (canned peaches may be used when others are not to be had), adding sugar, and cover with strips of dough and bake quickly at 400°F.

If you do not mind the expense, spread over the peaches a meringue made by whipping the whites of three eggs to a stiff froth and sweetening with a tablespoonful of pulverized sugar for each egg.

Add half a teaspoonful cream of tartar to the meringue; flavor with vanilla and set back in the oven until the meringue begins to color. Take out carefully. Eat cold. Delicious served with cream.

My Unforgettable Peach Pie

I recall attending a men's breakfast at a little country church back in the mid 1980s, where the Women's Institute had prepared the men's brunch.

After a wonderful home-cooked breakfast of pancakes, bacon, sausages, and scrambled eggs, we were told to hold onto our forks, as pie would be served for dessert.

There were so many homemade pie flavors to choose from, but I didn't have to choose. My cousin's husband seated across from me held a large deep-dish peach pie in one hand and a knife in the other and asked, "Do you like peaches, Don?"

Before I could reply, Roy had deftly sliced the pie in half, sliding one half onto my plate and the other onto his! It was delicious as expected but very filling. I didn't let on that I was struggling to eat the last few forkfuls.

The moment I had finished, Roy cast his gaze over the remaining pies and asked what my next favorite pie flavor was. I mumbled that I wasn't sure while pushing back my chair, afraid he'd slide another half pie onto my plate.

By the way, I still love an old fashioned peach pie!
