An hour or two later the ovens were filled with peach pies, juicy peach pies. At least three times I spooned out the...

Popping up through the blanket of snow outside my front door I can see the crocus and daffodils, there are robins all around, and the sun is out a bit longer every day. These signs of good things to come caused me to start on Spring baking and I am so happy to have a few Spring pies to post! The flavors for Spring are predominately fruit.
