  • 5 cups firm ripe peaches sliced, pitted and peeled
  • 3/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
Sour Cream Pastry:
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter cubed
  • 1/2 cup cold lard
  • 1/4 cup iced water approximately
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream


Sour Cream Pastry:
In bowl, whisk flour with salt. Using pastry blender, cut in butter and lard until in fine crumbs with a few larger pieces.

Whisk water with sour cream; drizzle over dry ingredients, stirring briskly with fork to form ragged dough and adding more water, 1 tbsp (15 mL) at a time, if too dry.

Divide pastry in half; press into discs. Wrap each in plastic wrap; refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 3 days.)

In bowl, combine peaches, sugar, flour and lemon juice; set aside.

On lightly floured surface, roll out 1 of the pastry discs to generous 1/8-inch (3 mm) thickness. Fit pastry into 9-inch (23 cm) pie plate; trim to rim. Spoon in filling.

Roll out remaining pastry. Brush rim with water. Place pastry over filling; trim to leave 3/4-inch (2 cm) overhang. Fold overhang under pastry rim; flute to seal. Cut steam vents in top.

Bake pie in bottom third of 425°F (220°C) oven for 15 minutes.

Reduce heat to 350°F (180°C); bake until golden brown on bottom, fruit is tender and juice is bubbly and thickened, 60 to 75 minutes.

Let cool on rack.
