Peaches and Cream Pie - and a project



Yum ! Fresh peaches ! I bought a small bag of locally grown peaches at a roadside stand and decided to use some to make a Peaches and Cream pie =) Really quite easy to make and oh so yummy !

Peaches and Cream Pie

3 cups peaches, sliced
1 pie crust, unbaked
1 c sugar
1/3 c flour
1/8 t salt
2 eggs
1/2 c sour cream

Line pie plate with pie crust. Place sliced peaches into the unbaked crust. Beat the eggs and sour cream together; add in the dry ingredients and mix well. Slowly pour over the peaches.

Crumb Topping
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c flour
1/4 cup cold butter

Mix together the flour and sugar. Combine the butter into this mixture with a pastry blender or fork until it makes small crumbles. Sprinkle on top of the pie. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 55-60 minutes, until golden brown. Cool for several hours before serving. Refrigerate leftovers.



Now for the projects:



And above are two paper craft projects somewhat related to the pie: a card and a recipe scrapbook. I entered them into a contest, but they did not win. I had fun experimenting with the idea though !

The stamp set I used was a limited edition from Stampin' Up!, only available during Sale A Bration in 2009. Another creation I made with this stamp set is posted here, Punched Tin.

The recipe scrapbook started as an ugly "scrapbook" bought at a dollar store. I recovered it, and created the card, using supplies from Stampin' Up!
The "ribbons" tied onto the spiral binding are scraps of fabric.

The faux wood (it is not real wood!) was made with card stock, ink and scissors. Creamy Caramel card stock and ink as well as Close To Cocoa ink. I cut the strips first, mitered them then distressed by rubbing ink pads on the tops and lightly gouging it with the scissors. The knob is done the same way after being punched out with a circle punch. Attach with a dimensional / pop dot.

The punched tin was created by stamping metallic silver card stock with Black Stazon ink. I also made a version by punching each dot with a needle.

Thanks for looking !
