Tasty "Tuesday" Peach Pie

It is time for a long over due Tasty Tuesday.  I do realize it is not Tuesday and that most of you probably wont read this until Thursday, but I need to share with you right!?  So this pie always gets rave reviews and is such a nice twist on the traditional Thanksgiving pies.  I recently made it for a church activity and everyone loved it and wanted the recipe.

What you will need:
2 Tbls corn starch
3/4 C. sugar
1/2 C. peach puree (fresh or canned)
1/2 C. water
2 Tbls lemon juice
4 C. peaches, sliced (fresh or canned)
4 oz. cream cheese
1/4 C. powder sugar
1 pie crust (this can be fresh, preformed or the kind
that's rolled out already that you form, anything you want)

Start out with the corn starch and sugar in a small pot and blend in the peach puree, water, and lemon juice.  Bring to a boil and cook until it becomes a darker, thick, jelly like consistency, stirring constantly.  Set aside to cool.

Beat together the powder sugar and cream cheese until well blended.  Spread the cream cheese mixture onto the bottom of a cooled pie crust.  Stir together the cooled puree mixture and peaches and poor into the pie crust.  Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
So Delicious!

So much has been going on in my life since I blogged and I feel so bad for not updating it as often as I should have been.  There were so many fun Halloween and Birthday celebrations for my sweet boy who turned ONE!  He is so big and is such a delight in our lives!  Thank you so much to those of you who stay loyal to the blog and our company, we love having you as part of our little family!  Make sure to check back soon for our November Giveaway!

Visit Online Scrapbook Stores and Fulfill Your Scrapbooking Dreams

“All the milestones, from magical to mortifying, make great stories — at least eventually.” writes Sloane Stephens Cox of Bella Magazine. These milestones may be remembered through old photographs and mementos, but there's no other way to tell a story effectively than through scrapbooks. They require an assortment of art supplies that people don't usually have at home, which compels some scrapbooking enthusiasts to buy supplies from scrapbook stores online. The effort, however, is worth as much as the sense of accomplishment that they feel afterward.
