Ingredients
  • Filling:
  • 6 fresh golden peaches, peeled, pitted and cut into eighths
  • 3 tablespoons raw honey
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
  • Pie crust:
  • 1 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cold vegetable shortening, cut into small pieces or cubed
  • 1/4 cup cold organic butter, cut into small cubes
  • 3 tablespoons ice water
  • Whipped topping:
  • 3/4 cup organic heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons Xylitol
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
Directions
Filling:
  • Put the peaches into a large mixing bowl. Add all of the remaining ingredients and mix

  • until the peaches are saturated and coated with the honey. Cover and refrigerate until ready to bake.

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

  • Crust:

  • Put all of the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until small dime-sized balls

  • are formed. If you don't have a food processor, put the ingredients into a bowl and, using a knife, cut the shortening and butter into the flour. When all the ingredients are incorporated, turn out onto a lightly floured surface and quickly knead the dough into a disc. Do not work dough too much. Gently roll the dough out and fit it into a 9-inch pie pan. Trim the edges, or shape the edges as desired. Poke several holes in the bottom of the dough with a fork.

  • Cook's Note: To add a little shine to the crust, brush egg whites or cream on the edges of the dough before baking.

  • Put the peaches into the pie pan, and bake for about 12 to 18 minutes, depending on

  • the color of the edges of the pie crust. When the edges are a beautiful brown, take

  • the pie out of oven and cool.

  • Whipped topping:

  • Put all of the ingredients into a medium-sized mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer,

  • until a silky whipped cream is formed; this should take about 3 minutes or so.

  • When pie has cooled, use a spatula to spread the whipped topping over the

  • surface of the pie. This pie is a picture perfect masterpiece that even Mom would be proud of.
