Fresh nectarine pie for a twist on a southern classic

Fresh nectarines, brown sugar and spices are mixed and stuffed into a flaky pie crust and baked up rich and sweet. Top this summery dessert with a big spoonful of creamy vanilla ice cream.

Maybe it’s because of my Southern roots, but one of my all-time favorite pie flavors is peach. I decided to put a little twist my all-time favorite and swap out the peaches for juicy nectarines. I topped off warm slices of this easy homemade pie with creamy vanilla bean ice cream.
