millions of peaches

Today I made what seems like a million peach pies.  OK more like 5. But still. I made a lot of pies.  More than I've ever  made at one time. Ever. I  know it's only August but  I thought it might be a good idea to stock up for the holidays.  Between my husband and I we have 4 sets of parents.  That's 4 separate Thanksgivings we have to attend so planning in advance sounded like a great idea to me.My mom came over and she make jars of peach jam for Christmas gifts and I made the pies for thanksgiving.    The peaches were fresh from a local organic farm.  Here is the recipe I used for the pies:

5 c. fresh peaches

3/4 c. sugar

3 tbsp. tapioca

1/4 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

2 pie crusts, unbaked

Roll out pie crust and put in a 9 inch pie plate. Combine peaches, sugar, cinnamon and tapioca. Pour into crust. Dot with butter. Cover with second pie crust. Bake at 425 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes. (Make sure you put this pie on a cookie sheet in the oven because it can boil over and make a real mess of the oven.) I used a basic pie crust recipe and rolled out the dough by hand. 
I am actually quite impressed with my domestic side today!
