This is one of my family's favorites -and one of my original recipes :) The addition of a slight amount of spirits enhances the spices and gives this pie an edge over less 'mature' fruit goodies. Why "Captain Jack's"? The rum of course!

Prep:

Cook:

1 Hr

Ingredients

10 large
ripe peaches, sliced
1/3 c
all purpose flour
1 c
white sugar
1/4 c
butter
2 Tbsp
rum
1 Tbsp
cornstarch
1 1/2 tsp
cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp
allspice
1 1/2 tsp
cardamon, ground
2
rolled out pie crusts -for top and bottom
milk for brushing crust top
sugar to sprinkle top of crust

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large bowl, cut the sugar, spices and cornstarch into the flour. Cut the butter into the flour mix.
2
In a separate large bowl, toss/gently stir the rum and peaches to coat.
3
Add the peaches to the flour mix and toss to coat again until each slice has some of the flour mixture on it.
4
While you preheat the oven to 400 degrees, lay your bottom pie crust in a pie pan (I prefer glass) and then pour, heap the fruit into the bottom crust.
5
Add the top crust and crimp your edges. Brush the top of the crust with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Make 4 or more inch-long slits in your top crust so that steam can escape. I normally do a slit for each 15 min mark on a clock face - so one at noon, one at 3, one at 6, etc.
6
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 mins
7
Lower the temp of the over to 350 degrees and bake an additional 40 mins - leave the pie in the oven after the bake time ends, until the oven is completely cool. Slice, serve and enjoy :)
