There's nothing like fresh peaches in summertime, but the peach pie recipe below is so good, you can make it all year long ... with frozen fruit! Since frozen peaches are picked and preserved at the peak of perfection, most of the year they're a far better choice than the fresh but ho-hum varieties you'll find in the supermarket. With a touch of lemon juice for brightness, they'll taste just as delicious as a summer peach right off the tree.
Some people get nervous about making pie dough from scratch, but this recipe couldn't be simpler. The secret is twofold: not overworking the dough and starting from super-cold ingredients, which is how to achieve an ultra-flaky crust. Consider adding ice cubes to the water before beginning this recipe, so it's as cold as possible when you add it to the flour and butter. The results will be well worth it!
