Our local peaches have been FABULOUS this year!
Inspired by BJ, author of the darling blog
I decided to make both a peach pie &
some PEACH PEEL JELLY.
While shopping at Sur La Table
(you can read about it HERE)
I found this little Pie Bird.
I've always wanted one!
Vintage ones can cost a pretty penny.
I think this little guy was only $4.
Fresh & steaming, right from the oven!
HOT sticky-gooey sweetness,
just bubbling out of cracks in the crust.
Doesn't he look like he's yelling...
"Get me out of here... I'm melting!"
Take special note of the pretty peachy-rose fabric beneath the plate.
You'll be seeing it later this week in a whole new way!
(EDIT: Go HERE to see the dress I made out of it)
I used Pennsylvania Redhaven peaches for this RECIPE.
They give a pretty pink color to the pie & jelly.
They have a harvest date of August 1st in PA.
All dressed up & ready as gifts to my sisters!
Let's have one more bite of that delicious pie,
I'm joining Yvonne at StoneGable for her
as well as Michael Lee at Designs by Gollum for
and The Tablescaper for her
Thanks to all these ladies for making cooking & sharing so much fun!
