Peach and Blueberry Cream Pie

Peach and Blueberry Cream Pie

Oh boy..  it has been a week.. me sick, kids sick..  I feel like I just gave the doctor all of our money!! haha.. but seriously..our poor debit card, she really got used and abused this past week!  This peach and blueberry cream pie made my week MUCH better!

Now about the FOOD!!..  I love food.  Does your mouth start watering when commercials come on and they have really yummy looking food?  ok, well mine does..  don’t tell anyone my secret, it’s a little embarrassing!!

Welllllllll  aaaaaaaaannnyway, I’ve noticed something about the way I choose the stuff I bake…  It always starts with a trip to the store.  I usually don’t have any idea what I am going to be making until I get home from the store with my loot.  So I find myself in the fresh produce isle and I just kind of grab fruit because it looks yum, or has a cool name.. seriously, that’s how I do it.  Then when I get home, I start thinking about what I am going to do with my recent purchases..  There really is no plan going in….this is probably a terrible way to go to the store, but that is my process.  Now you know…  it’s a ridiculous way, but it’s MY ridiculous way!

When I get home I grab a beautiful bunch of peaches!!! It was clear I needed to make a pie.. I had to..   it just had to be done!

I love peaches, but I also love blueberries and I had an ABUNDANCE of frozen blueberries that were basically screaming to be eaten….  so in the pie they went!  I decided to make this peach and blueberry cream pie similar to my plum custard pie, but I used some sour cream instead.  You could always use vanilla or plain Greek yogurt instead of the sour cream.

P.S. I added a crumb topping, but you DO NOT have to add this….  honestly, I had mixed feelings about it.  In conclusion, this addition is a personal preference, so do what you must. 🙂
