Fresh Peach Pie

Look at how stunning this pie looks. It is my go-to fresh peach dessert recipes I make for friends and family. Whether you are giving to a loved one who just had a baby, gifting to your neighbor, or serving up at your next potluck party. This pie is perfect for peach season. 

Peach Dessert Recipes 

Peach salsa, grilled peaches, peach tart, or served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, there is no wrong way to enjoy this fruit. I am all about pies, and there is something about a pie shell that is baked to a light and flaky consistency that is filled with sliced peaches. It just works, add in the spices and it throws it over the edge for me. 

Do You Have To Peel Peaches for Pie 

Pealing your peaches is a personal preference. You can leave them on to add a pop of deep red color to your pie or peel them. I personally prefer a pie without the skins.

So I take a little time and just use a peeler and shave it off. Then slice and pour the summer peaches into a bowl. Peeling almost any fruit pie is a personal choice.

How Do I Make My Pie Crust Not Soggy 

One key thing I always recommend is starting with a preheated oven. Don’t toss your pie into a cold oven, or you can end up with a soggier crust. Allowing the pie to go into a hot oven, will help to ensure you don’t have a soggy crust in the end. 

You can also make an egg wash and brush the crust that is showing around the pie.

The Edges Of My Pie Crust Overcook 

I also recommend buying these pie crust shields, if you happen to get an over-cooked crust. This will protect the crust, and then 15 minutes before you pull pie out of the oven, take off the shield, and you end up with golden brown pie crust each and every time.

Depending on the size of your peaches will depend on how many you need. I used around 5-6 peaches for this pie. My peaches were on the medium to large size, so take note in that. But in general, this is a good guide on knowing how many peaches you need for a pie. 

How Long Is Peach Pie Good For 

If you store your peach pie at room temperature on the counter it lasts for up to two days. If you cover loosely and place in the fridge your peach pie will store for up to 4-5 days. I always keep the leftover pie in the fridge to maximize the time it is good for. 

Can I Use Frozen Peaches For This Pie Recipe 

Yes. You can use five cups of frozen peaches if you prefer. I let them thaw a bit to drain off any excess juice, and then mix as I normally would and bake. Peaches tend to be frozen at their prime, so they will offer a sweet taste, and be just as good as fresh. It will turn up to be a fantastic baked pie either way. 

peach season recipeCan I Add Other Fruit To My Peach Pie 

If you want to make a fruit pie consider adding in some fresh raspberries or even a few slices of strawberries. Both of those fruits pair nicely with the peaches and spices. Or experiment with other fruits. Just aim for 5 cups of fruit altogether for the pie.
