Ingredients

For the pie crust

  • 250 g of flour
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • 160 g of cold butter
  • 100 ml of ice water

For the filling

  • 1.6 kg of peaches
  • 60 g of butter, cold
  • 150 g of sugar + 2 tablespoons for dusting the cake
  • 4 tablespoons of flour
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla essence
  • Cinnamon
  • Salt

Instructions

  • Add the flour with the salt to a large bowl, then add the butter. Coat the stick of butter with flour in the bowl, then using a bench scraper cut the butter lengthwise in half, then lengthwise in quarters, coating each newly cut side in flour. Dice the butter and cover each piece in flour, then with a pastry cutter press the mixture as you would mash potatoes.
  • Add the ice water little by little and mix quickly with your hands just enough to create a ball of dough. Work the dough as little as possible.
  • Wrap the ball in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour.
  • Meanwhile, make the fruit filling. Wash the peaches, remove the stone and cut into cubes.
  • Add the peaches to a bowl and add the sugar, flour, juice of a lemon, a pinch of salt, two teaspoons of vanilla essence and a good pinch of cinnamon powder. Mix quickly.
  • Remove the dough from the fridge, divide it into four parts. Roll the dough with some flour and a rolling pin, then line a previously greased and floured 18 cm round pie pan. Fill it with peaches, then roll out a second piece of dough and cover the pie. Repeat with a second pie pan.
  • Trim the excess pie crust, seal the edges with a fork. Make vents on the top crust with the tip of a sharp knife.
  • Sprinkle the pies with a tablespoon of sugar and let them sit in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 230°C, then bake the pies for 10 minutes. Turn the oven down to 190°C and bake for at least 30 minutes more, until the crust is golden brown and the juices are thick and bubbling.
  • Cool he pies completely before cutting them.
