Peach Pie

My mom used to make a delicious peach pie in all the summer holidays when I was a child. She made those pies from scratch and I had a really hard time remembering what ingredients she used for the pie. I had helped a few times with baking so I think I made a pie very similar to hers. 
I love how the peaches never lose their taste after baking but get an even more intense taste. It never ceases to amaze me! 
The pie is fruity and definitely sweet enough to enjoy on a sunny day in the backyard or on a rainy day inside reminding you of summer ;)

Have a lovely day,
