There is nothing better than making a fresh peach pie for your loved ones or taking it to a party. The pie is so easy to make and tastes phenomenal! The peach filling combined with the buttery and flaky pie crust truly makes for the best pie recipe. Serve the pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for the ultimate dessert.
WHAT YOU NEED-
This fresh peach pie recipe comes together so quickly and with simple ingredients!
- Pie crust– You can use store-bought pie crust or homemade pie dough.
- Peaches– We recommend you use fresh peaches that are slightly firm, not too hard and not too mushy.
- Cornstarch– This is the thickening agent for the filling.
- Sugars– Use brown sugar and granulated sugar to give your filling sweetness.
- Cinnamon– Ground cinnamon gives you that delicious flavor!
- Lemon– We like adding lemon juice to add a hint of acidity.
- Butter– Cubed butter gives you a delicious buttery filling.
- Egg wash– An egg with a splash of water for the top of the pie to give you that shiny, golden pie crust. You can also use heavy cream for the topping instead of egg wash.
|Chef’s Tip- To spice up your peach pie, add only the amount of peaches and the other half substitute with another fruit for a multi-flavored pie. We love adding apples, raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries!|

FREEZING THE PEACH PIE-
Freezing pie is great! I love to make a couple of pies while peaches are in season to enjoy when craving peach pie! You can freeze peach pie either baked or unbaked.
- BAKED PIE– Once baked and cooled, cover the pie and freeze the pie covering it well to avoid freezer burn and freeze for up to 4 months!
- UNBAKED PIE– Cover pie tightly and freeze for up to 4 months. Thaw in refrigerator overnight and bake per instructions.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS-

Add the peach pie to the oven and preheat at 350F and cover the pie with foil and bake for about 20 minutes, or until the pie is warmed.
The cornstarch is the thickening agent for the filling, adding more cornstarch will give you a thicker filling.
Although we do recommend using fresh peaches, you can also use drained canned peaches or defrosted frozen peaches for the filling with great results.
