Peaches and Cream Pie

By Sarah Beleski a recent ASU Nutrition student

My family is unconventional in the sense that most of us don’t like birthday cakes. Now, we’re not completely crazy… we may not like the basic sponge cake, but we find other treats to enjoy on our birthdays. For as long as I can remember, my sister has requested pie on her birthday. And for good reason!

The Pie she requests is a peaches and cream pie. This pie is creamy, delicious, and extremely easy to make! It’s best served right out of the refrigerator and with a cup of tea or coffee. Try out this recipe the next time you’re thinking of stepping outside the box.
