This Rhubarb-Peach Pie recipe tastes like summer! To make it, simply fill a buttery crust with fresh or frozen fruit and a few pantry staples.

Meanwhile. prepare Butter Pastry. On a lightly floured surface, flatten one of the dough balls. Roll from center to edge into a 12-inch circle. Wrap pastry circle around rolling pin; unroll into a 9-inch pie plate.

Roll remaining dough ball to a 12-inch circle; cut dough into 1/2 to 3/4-inch-wide strips. Weave the strips over fill for lattice crust. Press ends of strips into crust rim. Fold bottom pastry over strips, trimming strips as necessary; seal and crimp edge.
Combine beaten egg and 1 tablespoon water; brush over pastry. Sprinkle lightly with sugar.
