I am a TOTAL Pie GEEK! Are you a Pie Geek too? How do you know if you’re a Pie Geek? If you answer yes to any or all of the following pie questions then,
You are a Pie Geek!
1. If you could stand up in a court of law and confess ”I your name do solemnly swear that I love pie, ALL PIE, Cream Pie, Fruit Pie, Savory Pie…pie, pie, pie.”
2. If you, ALSO, love to bake pies, or have baked at least 3 pies in your life time.
3. If you find yourself inserting the word pie into poems, songs, and your daily vocabulary. ”Pie how are ya” “Lucy in the Pie with diamonds..” “Oh how I love pie let me count the ways…” Or you think people have said something about pie when they really have not. “I love the color of your pies…” (eyes). ”Aren’t the Boston Cream Pies on fire this year?!” (Boston Celtics)
4. You call your mouth a “pie hole”.
5. And FINALLY…just saying the word pie makes you swoon, MMMmmm AaahhhH, and smile dizzily like a GEEK. If you answered yes to this question…well I’m sorry, BUT you are a PIE GEEK!

Now that I’ve got all that business out of the way. I have another pie that I want to share with you!
This pie goes out to my gal Cind. She’s the purdy one on the right. This girl loves herself some pie. We have known each other before we could even eat pie! Don’t you worry though, we have made up for all those non-pie eating years…..and then some. Cindy is a bonefide Pie Geek, and Peach Pie is her favorite! So, I came up with this pie just for her. This one’s for you my Pie luvin’ sister
Lattice Peach Crumble Pie
6 cups Peaches, pitted and sliced
3 tablespoons Flour
1/2 cup Sugar
3/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg
1 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Flour
1/2 cup Old Fashioned Oatmeal
1 stick Butter, cold and cut into cubes
2 Pie Crusts
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
-Roll out one pie crust and lay it in bottom of pie plate, trim edges so they hang 1″ over edge of pie plate.
-Combine peaches, flour, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a bowl.
-Cut cold butter into flour, brown sugar, and oatmeal with a pastry cutter.
-Pour peach filling in bottom crust.
-Cover filling with crumb layer, make sure crumb layer evenly covers peaches.
-Roll out second crust, cut into 1″ strips with a pizza cutter, lay strips in a basket weave pattern over crumb layer. Trim up over hang. Crimp bottom and lattice crust layer together.
-Set pie plate on cookie sheet (to avoid juices bubbling out from getting all over the bottom of your oven) place on middle rack in a preheated 375 degree oven for 50-60 minutes.
Let cool 1 hour before serving with vanilla ice cream.
Cheers to Pie!
