Peach Pie

How long did you think I could really go without posting something sweet?

This recipe is loosely, very loosely adapted from a Peach Cobbler recipe in my River Roads II cookbook, that I gush so much about. This pie turned out way better than my expectations would have ever dared to dream!

Instead of you rolling you eyes and sighing while I go on and on about how good this pie is, let just start baking.


Because this pie was made on the fly, I didn't have the inclination to make my own pie crust, I used the store bought stuff.


1 box refrigerated pie crust (each box contains two rolls of pie crust
5 peaches peeled, de-seeded and sliced into 6 slices per peach
1/4 cup of water
1 cup organic sugar (white granulated sugar is fine too)
1 tablespoon of flour
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup butter melted
1 egg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray pie dish with non-stick cooking spray. Place one of the sheets of pie dough into the pie dish, side will hang over. Using a fork, poke holes in the dough all over.

Cook peaches in water until tender. Mix flour, salt and sugar. Add to peaches and combine. Pour melted butter into the peach mixture and combine. Pour peach mixture into prepared pie dish.

Cut the remaining sheet of dough into lattice pieces and weave on top of peach mixture. Brush egg wash over lattice peaches and lightly sprinkle with granulated sugar.

Bake pie in preheated 350 degree oven for 40 to 45 minutes. Cool and serve.

I wanted to try another dessert using fresh peaches. Think I found it!

I love peaches, I just pealed two this afternoon for the GRANDS. I find it strange that living in the Peach State of Georgia the best peach I ever had was right off a road side stand in California. I make some great peach cobbler but have never made a peach pie.

Selba said...

Wow! delicious peach pie! I want a slice!

Sounds yummy! The Cajun won't touch a peach - not even peach cobbler can you imagine??!! I might just make this for myself though. :)

Julie said...

Peach pie.. this one is screaming to me.. It looks beautiful and I love the ease of it. This cookbook must be fabulous.. you make loads of recipes out of it. Is it available nationally?

Simple and to the point. I like it! I have been thinking quite fondly of peaches this week. This looks like a great way to handle that craving.

Lynda said...

Oh yes, I need this! Really, I adore peach pie and this one looks wonderful, Katherine!

If this peach pie tastes as good as it looks, I'm in big trouble! Love fresh peaches and I'm definitely going to try this one! Thanks, cher!

A sweet taste of summer! How scrumptious!

I'm going to conquer my fear of pie crust one day. I'm designing my own 12-step pie crust program. In the meantime, I, like you, continue to use the box crusts. Hubby doesn't like them, but his mother was pie baker extraordinaire, and he doesn't understand that anything besides graham cracker crust makes me cower under a table in fear!

Your peach pie looks good, and I could probably have it all for myself, since most of my peeps don't like peaches!

Mary said...

This is one of my all time favorite pies. Your lattice puts mine to shame. Our peaches are terrific this year, so I'll be trying this really soon.

Sara said...
