Peachy Peach Pie from The Southern Lady Cooks

I love finding recipes on blogs (I love sharing them, too).  I don't know how many times I'd see something I wanted to make, but would forget what website I saw it on when I went to actually make it.  Pintrest has helped alleviate that problem for me, when I actually remember to pin a recipe.  I'd seen a recipe for "Peachy Peach Pie" from a fellow blogger, for example, but realized I hadn't pinned it so had to got to an old fashioned search approach...scrolling every blog I follow 'til I found it.  Lucky for me, I found it; unfortunately I added several blogs to my reader so my list was longer than ever.  Well, the search was worth it.  At The Southern Lady Cooks blog I finally found what I was looking for.  Without further ado, here's Judy's recipe for Peachy Peach Pie...

1 (9 inch) pie shell (I used a Pillsbury frozen pie crust)
2 cans sliced peaches (a 29 ounce can and a 15.25 ounce can), drained **I accidentally bought 2-21 oz. cans of peach pie filling and the pie was still yummy.
2 eggs
1/3 cup white sugar **I used 1/4 cup sugar since the peach pie filling was sweet
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Topping
25 vanilla wafers, crushed or enough wafers to make one cup fine crumbs (I put them in a ziploc bag and crush with rolling pin)
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine, cut in small pieces **I totally forgot to add the butter, but the topping was still great.
3/4 to 1 cup walnut pieces **I used pecan pieces since that's what I had on hand.
Cook the pie crust in a preheated 450 degree oven for five minutes. (Do not prick the bottom of the crust)  Beat eggs, lemon juice and sugar with a mixer until well mixed.  Fold in peaches and vanilla,  mix with a spoon.   Pour peaches in pie shell.
Mix wafer crumbs, flour, nutmeg and sugar together.  Sprinkle over pie.  Cut up butter in pieces and put on top of crumbs.  Sprinkle walnuts over pie.  Bake in preheated 375 degree oven 40 to 45 minutes.  Makes one pie. Enjoy!


Be sure to hop onto Judy's blog and tell her thank you for creating such a divine pie!

Thanks for visiting.  Have a great weekend.
