As y’all might recall, once a year I participate in Dinner is Served 1972‘s pieathalon with a bunch of other vintage obsessed food bloggers. We swap recipes and bake what we’re assigned. Because I’m a Class A bitch, I always submit something horrible for someone else to make. That’s how I roll. This year I offered up “Cool Mint Cookie Pie” which I’m pretty sure tastes like tinted green sadness. In return I received Dutch Peaches and Cream Pie.
According to the Googles, there’s nothing Dutch about a Dutch pie. And honestly, there’s nothing about this pie that made me want to eat it. That’s where Crazy Neighbor Dude comes in.
I’m super lucky, given that I’m a Class A bitch, to have good neighbors on both sides of my home. On one side the kids babysit my dogs when I’m out of town, and on the other side Crazy Neighbor Dude is my safety net. He’s scared off whackjobs from my yard, taken me to the ER, and has actually babysat me. In exchange, I bake for him. He gets cookies, cupcakes and I even got him his own pie plate that he drops off to have refilled with homemade pecan pie. The poor bastard I’m married to doesn’t get the same kind of homebaked love. (Class A bitch, remember?)
So, this recipe is pretty simple. Even easier when you half-ass it like I did. The pie crust came from the Pillsbury Doughboy and the peaches came pre-sliced in a can.
And then delivered it to Crazy Neighbor Dude! Btw… I have him so well trained that all I have to do is text him the word “Driveway” and he comes running.
Crazy Neighbor Dude’s official review:
Just had a slice of pie, still slightly warm and I gotta say! It tasted classic. Warm peach is always delicious. The top layer was quite tricky on the eyes. Lol. It looks like it’d be crusty but when I cut into it it was very soft. Lol. The texture is quite amazing. It has a perfect amount of crunch to it.
So… there you have it. Crazy Neighbor Dude approved.
