today, we are back with a video we styled and shot for the amazing Made With Soul! Nancy Lee, the lovely sweets queen makes the most delicious desserts! we thought this was fitting with the arrival of fall and holidays not too far off! (what??) you can contact Nancy Lee, of Made WIth Soul directly to put in your pie and sweets  orders for parties, holidays or just your run-of-the-mill monday night craving.

now, let’s make nectarine pie!
what you’ll need for the crust:
-2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for rolling
-1 cup (2 sticks or 8 ounces) unsalted butter, very-cold, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
-1 teaspoon salt
-1 teaspoon sugar
-6 to 8 Tbsp ice water
-food processor
how to do it:
-combine flour, salt, and sugar in a food processor; pulse to mix. add butter and pulse 6 to 8 times, until mixture resembles coarse meal, with pea size pieces of butter. add ice water 1 tbsp at a time, pulsing until mixture just begins to clump together. if you pinch some of the crumbly dough and it holds together, it’s ready. if the dough doesn’t hold together, add a little more water and pulse again.
-remove dough from machine and place in a mound on a clean surface. gently shape into 2 discs. knead the dough just enough to form the discs, do not over-knead. you should be able to see little bits of butter in the dough. wrap up in plastic wrap and refrigerate for an hour.
-remove one crust disk from the refrigerator and let sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes in order to soften just enough to make rolling out a bit easier. roll out with a rolling pin on a lightly floured surface to a 12-inch circle; about 1/8 of an inch thick. carefully place onto a 9-inch pie plate. gently press the pie dough down so that it lines the bottom and sides of the pie plate. use a pair of kitchen scissors to trim the dough to within 1/2 inch of the edge of the pie dish.
what you’ll need for the filling:
-6-8 juicy ripe nectarines (washed and cut into wedges)
-1/2 cup sugar
-1/2 lemon (squeezed and juiced)
-1/2- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
-pinch of cloves (optional)
how to do it:
-mix all ingredients  together until nectarines are covered with juice and sugars.
-fill pie crust with fruit  and bake until crust is golden.
-350 degree preheated oven for about 30-40 minutes.
