K. A. Stewart… Be Brave

By Geekmom

So I have two recipe requests from the amazing K. A. Stewart. They are not connected, so please understand. They are, however, sweets for which she has a hankering.

The first is peach pie. It really isn’t peach season, but I am betting that it can be made adequately with frozen peaches if they are thawed first.

Peach Pie ( 9″)

Mix together the following:
4 c. sliced peaches
4 T. flour
7/8 to 1 c. sugar (Depends on the sweetness of the peaches)
1/2 t. nutmeg

Prepare the bottom crust of the pie. Fill with the mixture. Cut up 1 1/2 T butter over filling. Put on top crust and cut vents. Bake at 425 degrees for 35 to 35 minutes.

Cinnamon Rolls

Heat 1 c. milk, 1/2 c. sugar, and 1 t. salt to lukewarm (just take the chill off the milk). Mix in two packages of dry granular yeast (4 1/2 t.). Add in two eggs (room temperature) and 1/2 c. melted butter (just melted, not too hot). Add 4 1/2 to 5 c. flour. (Add the first two cups, mix in well. Add the next two cups. Save the last 1/2 to 1 c. to use while kneading the dough.)

Turn dough out on floured board and knead until the dough is just kissing the board. It will be slightly soft, but it will not stick. Raise in oiled, covered bowl. Raise until doubled. Punch down. Raise again until doubled.

Turn out onto a board and roll out to a 9″ by 18″ rectangle. Spread with 2 T of softened butter. Mix 1/2 c. of sugar and 2 t. cinnamon. Spread out on the butter. Roll up the long way. Cut into 1″ slices and place in a greased 9 x 13 pan. Raise until doubled. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. (Mine tend to go closer to 25 minutes.)

Ice as you wish or eat as they are.
