Peaches and Cream Pie

Last night, I baked a “peaches and cream pie” from a recipe in Baked Explorations by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito.

The recipe calls for canned peach halves and one 32 oz can gives you just enough to fill the bottom of the pie pain.

The cream part of the “peaches and cream” is a mixture of sour cream, eggs, brown sugar, and honey.

The top of the pie is a crumble made from flour, brown sugar, and butter.  I ran out of all purpose flour and so used whole wheat flour instead:

My end product:

I couldn’t taste a difference with the whole wheat flour used in the crumble and the pie was pretty darn fantastic. 🙂
