“Drunken” Peaches and Cream Pie

"Drunken" Peaches and Cream Pie

Now folks, that’s a mighty fine looking pie, if I do say so for myself!

Here is another recipe inspired by a friends Grandma! Who doesn’t like a peach pie right? Well. it’s one of my favorite and it’s peach season in Colorado! Georgia isn’t the only state the produces amazing peaches, it’s really Colorado’s hidden secret! They are grown on the Western Slope and mainly come from the town of Palisade. It’s really like Christmas in August and September when the peaches arrive! One thing that I think is cool is that there are many charities in Colorado that sell the peaches for fundraisers. I buy mine from a local high school to support the athletics department. It’s really a win win all around. I love that. Anyway, after making my friends pie, I needed to make a few adjustments and thought why not add a little schnapps and make it a “Drunken” Peaches and Cream Pie! Funny but the schnapps just adds a little more flavor to this already to die for pie! There is cream in it folks. OMG! Give it a try, it’s definitely a winner in my book.

Super short post this week. Dealing with some stuff here. Have a great week friends! 🙂

A little slice of Colorado pie heaven. I can never cut a pie “pretty”. Who cares right? It still tastes good and still ends up in my happy belly!

It’s like Christmas in August. Nuf said…
