So, it turns out that the Joy of Cooking is right, and you can assemble a covered fruit pie, freeze it, and then bake it at a later date without a really noticeable change in quality or taste.

On the other hand, I have discovered that I don't really care for peach pie. Peaches are apparently only meant to be eaten in the following ways: perfectly ripe out of hand, with cream, on waffles/crepes/oven pancake with whipped cream, canned, or in cobbler (ideally a mixed-fruit cobbler). Not in peach pie, which magically combines two tasty things into a non-tasty thing.

Fortunately, my co-workers were able to help. And complemented me on my baking skills. Apparently my crusts are improving, even if they are not yet as good as Mom's.

I think the second frozen peach pie is going to go to Christmas Dinner. Or the lace meeting potluck.

Huh, that's kind of cool -- the whole pie freezing thing. It makes sense, though. I may have to do that -- the idea of having a few frozen apple pies around is v. tempting.

It is pretty cool, just unfortunate that I don't like this particular kind of pie. I may try doing it next year with apples.

Consider peach ice cream. It's yum.

Peach smoothies of some kind? (Canned peaches blended with frozen berries? Or frozen bananas? Or just ice, if you prefer... and maybe some milk or cream or yogurt?)

Next year I may try that. The pies seemed like a good idea at the time, since I was already eating several peaches a day.
