Our reader Ginny Kelly from Point Lookout, New York, got this recipe from her mother, who offered this advice: "Just tidy up the kitchen and keep an eye on the oven. When you're finished, the pie will be done."
If you prefer to make an extra-wide lattice-top crust for this pie, roll out dough to 1/8 inch thick, and cut four 3-inch-wide strips. Chill the strips until firm. Weave the strips over the filling, and seal the lattice to the bottom crust with a mixture of egg and milk.
A tart, jewel-toned plum jam tops this creamy dessert, supplying a lovely
contrast in flavor and color. The yogurt filling has hints of vanilla and lemon zest. Graham crust made
with whole-wheat flour rather than ground crackers is an earthy but faintly sweet backdrop.
With a sunny arrangement of peak peaches, this dessert is summer in a pie plate. Make a ring of foil to protect the crust from browning too quickly: Cut a piece twice the size of the pie, fold it in half, and cut a circle out of the center large enough to expose the top but cover the edges.
