Market Peach Pie with Lavender & Pink Peppercorns

This peach pie is delicious. Absolutely nothing beats market fresh peaches at their peak. They are slightly tangy and sweet, and hit all of the points of happiness in your mouth. We added lavender to the crust, and pink peppercorns to the fruit.

For the crust:
1 cup butter, cubed
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup corn flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon lavender
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

For the filling:
2 lbs peaches, about 6 medium peaches, pitted
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup cape gooseberries or more blueberries or peaches
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup sugar + 1 tablespoon
1 teaspoon pink peppercorns
pinch of sea salt

To make the crust:
Refrigerate the cubed butter for 1/2 an hour.
Combine the flours, salt, and lavender in a food processor. Start the mixer. Add the cubed butter and pulse until the butter is completely combined into the flour, and it resembles a crumbly sand. Add the vinegar and about 4 tablespoons of ice water. Continue to pulse until the dough becomes moist and holds together. Add as much ice water as necessary to have the dough come together, but without becoming wet. Refrigerate for 1/2 an hour. Preheat the oven to 400ºF degrees.
Roll out and form into a 9 inch pie shell. Refrigerate in the shell for 30 minutes. Prick the shell all over and crimp the edges with the back of a fork. Roll out the extra dough and cut in the form of a heart. Bake the heart for 15 minutes, or until golden.

Meanwhile, slice the peaches into thin wedges. Toss the peaches, blueberries, and cape gooseberries with the flour and 1/2 cup sugar. Grind the pink peppercorns with the tablespoon sugar in a spice grinder or with a mortar and pestle. Add to the fruit, and sprinkle on the sea salt.
Transfer the mixture to the pie shell and bake the pie for 1 hour.
Remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature.
Serves 8.
