I am constantly amazed at how animated and talkative people get when you mention food. The mere aroma of certain foods can evoke memories that transport us back to a special place and time. Food can bridge the gap between all ages, races and ethnicities.
Let's face it, the only thing that should ever come between people is a table and some serving bowls.

Coffee and.....Nectarine Pie

I love when you are out visiting friends or family having that special get together cup of coffee or tea that there is usually some sweet satisfying goodie to go with it. I’ve gotten some of my best recipes just stopping by friends for coffee. This is one of those times…..
All I am going to say is; “Nectarine Pie” Flaky, just the right amount of sweet, the fruit tender and juicy, just wonderful.

Fresh nectarines (6-8 for 1 pie) depending on size

1/4 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon of cinnamon
Juice of 1 lemon
1 tbsp. butter
Pastry for double crust pie (store bought or homemade is just fine)
Milk, just a little to brush top of pie crust

Slice nectarines and spread evenly in pastry-lined pan. Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar over sliced nectarines. Squeeze the juice from the lemon over the fruit filling. Dot with butter.
Top with pie crust; crimp edges and slit top. Brush top crust with milk, then sprinkle with sugar. Protect pie edges with foil. Bake in 350 degree oven for 40-50 minutes or until top browns.
