Pi(e) Day

Posted on

It’s March 14th and that means it’s Pi Day.  Here’s one of my favourite pie recipes to celebrate:

Note:  I have posted a peaches and cream pie recipe here on my blog previously but I like this one even better!

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 (3 ounce) package non-instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 (29 ounce) can sliced peaches, drained and syrup reserved
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions:  Grease the sides and bottom of a 10 inch deep dish pie plate.  Mix together the flour, salt, baking powder, and pudding mix.  Add in the butter, egg, and milk and beat for 2-3 minutes.  Pour this mixture into the pie plate.  Arrange the peaches on top of this mixture.  In a bowl, beat the cream cheese until fluffy and mix in 1/2 cup of sugar and 3 T. of the reserved peach syrup.  Beat for 2-3 minutes and spoon this over top of the peaches in the pie plate, leaving a one inch border from the edge of the pan.  Combine the remaining sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle on top of the pie.  Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes until golden brown.  Chill and serve.
