Mom's Nectarine Lattice Pie

No recipe image available.Nectar has come to mean any juice that is divinely sweet. This pie, with gold and red-orange nectarines visible through the lattice top, is heavy with summery sweet juices. It's heavenly alone and truly divine à la mode.

Recipe Ingredients:

10 nectarines, pitted and sliced
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons finely grated lemon peel
Pastry for 1 (9-inch) double-crust pie*
1 tablespoon milk
2 tablespoons granulated sugar

Cooking Directions:

  1. Thaw the frozen unbaked pie dough. Line a pie dish with one crust; prick bottom with a fork. Roll out remaining dough; cut into 1/2-inch strips. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C). Using a medium bowl combine first addition of sugar with flour and lemon peel; add nectarines and gently toss. Spoon into unbaked pie crust.
  3. Form a lattice crust by weaving the dough strips over nectarine filling. Seal and crimp edges. Brush lattice top with milk; sprinkle with remaining sugar.
  4. Place on baking sheet; bake for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°F (175°C) and bake 45 to 50 minutes or until lattice top is golden brown and fruit is tender. Cool on a wire rack.

Makes 8 servings.
