Between walking around and looking at the damage of the flood, and checking twitter for news (because it honestly is the best source during something like this), I got to turn on my oven. And if I didn't know that people around me were being evacuated, having their homes washed away, and losing everything, I might have even been able to enjoy baking.
I don't know why it takes a major emergency to bring this out of us, but it really shouldn't. Every once in a while, we just need a reminder to be nice for the sake of being nice I guess. So even though wherever you're reading this, you may not be going through a disaster, just be nice. Let's all just do that. Make a pie for your neighbor, offer to water their plants when they're gone, help a lost person with directions. Just be nice for the sake of being nice.
2 pie crusts
1/2 c. sugar
2 Tbsp. tapioca
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
6 c. peaches, peeled and thinly sliced
1 Tbsp. water
1. Combine peaches, sugar, tapioca, cinnamon and nutmeg.
2. Place one pie crust into the bottom of a pie pan. Fill with peach mixture.
3. Mix together the egg and water for an egg wash. Brush onto the rim of the bottom pie crust. Lay the second crust on top. Pinch together and cut vent holes. Brush the entire top of the pie with the egg wash and sprinkle with a little sugar.
4. Bake at 375˚ for 50-55 minutes (watch to make sure the crust does not get too brown - cover the edges if necessary).
