Celebrate National Peach Pie Day with Flaming Peach Pie

This has been my mom’s favorite pie since I can remember. My Nana (her mom) would always make it for her on her birthday and then I made it a few times after my Nana passed away. We’d turn off all of the lights in the house, and when she lit the pie the flames would dance all over the pie. I thought it was the coolest thing ever when I was little. Of course, sometimes we had extra excitement, like when Nana would catch the run on fire when warming it, so do use caution. The flames are intended to dance on the pie, not burn your eyebrows off. I haven’t made this pie in years, so I don’t have a photo. But I did get this recipe directly from my mom. Let me know if you make it and if you like it.

1 pie crust (homemade or purchased)
6 peaches
1 tbsp flour
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp instant tapioca
3 tbsp rum

Peel peaches and slice, catching any juice in a bowl. Layer peach slices in shell in nice circular pattern. Combine flour, brown sugar and butter and mix until crumbly. Place in center of pie. Add tapioca to peach juice and pour over pie. Bake 15 minutes at 450 degrees and then reduce to 375 degrees for an additional 45 minutes. Let pie cool to room temperature. Warm rum, pour over pie, turn off the lights and ignite.
