Happy Anniversary to Sweet Peach...

Today marks the one year anniversary of Sweet Peach! I'm so fortunate to have met such incredible Southern artisans who have been so gracious and open to me and my little blog. I appreciate all of you for letting me into your world, if just for a moment. Thank you to all my readers, bookmarkers and commenters...Thank you to Vanessa for your beautiful design, to Bryce and Kathryn for your guest contributions, to my mama for your love and baking skills and my sister for her editing expertise and undying support. Thank you, thank you...I feel so lucky. 

In return for everyone's kindness and encouragement, I figured what better way to celebrate then with a Brandied Peach Pie recipe (page 45) by one of my favorite Southern artisans, Maggie Sweeney of Cake Hag.

Maggie is a master at cakes but her expertise does not stop there. Making pies is one of her favorite pastimes and I promise, this recipe will not disappoint. When I asked her to make something peach inspired for the blog's one year anniversary, her eyes lit up at the thought of sharing her Brandied Peach Pie recipe. Sounded perfect to me and it was pure fun to hang in her kitchen and watch her work, tasting scraps and licking bowls along the way... 

Two tips by Maggie for a flaky, scrumptious crust includes keeping the dough cold while working with it (she iced her hands) and to not overwork the dough. Less is always more...

Thank you Maggie for the best anniversary gift I could ask for... I ate the whole thing in two days. Insane. 

I hope you're inspired to make your own peach pie this summer as peaches are now in season throughout the South. Find Maggie's recipe at the Atlanta Intown Paper, June edition. Page 45! And thank you Wendy and Collin at Atlanta InTown who have been nothing but encouraging and supportive since day one. 

Enjoy your weekend everyone! I'll be off to Turkey on Sunday for work but if all goes as planned, I will still be blogging, ha! Wish me luck...

I have never tried a brandied peach pie. I can't wait and it's perfect timing as I'm visiting my dad up in South Carolina this weekend and they have peach stands every few miles. Looks amazing!
