Pie Recipe

Especially good with fresh peaches

Peaches and Cream Pie

Unbaked pie shell for a 9-inch pie
2/3 cup white sugar
4 tablespoons all purpose flour
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup whipping cream (but not whipped)
3 to 4 large fresh peaches, or 7 or 8 canned peach halves

Prepare the pie shell according to your recipe or package directions.(Good news: you don't blind bake this crust. Go right ahead with the filling. They bake at the same time.)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Make the cream component by mixing together the unwhipped cream, sugar, salt and flour. Set aside.

Peel and slice fresh peaches into the pie shell. Pour the cream mixture over them and lightly shake the pie to evenly distribute. Bake at 400 for about 35 minutes, then turn down to 350 degrees for an additional 10 minutes.

Let the pie cool completely before slicing. Keep leftovers (if you have any) in the refrigerator.

Easy and Awesome

Fresh fruit makes it special - a cool summer treat

The recipe below for Peaches and Cream Pie is based on an old family favorite, and it is outstanding with fully-ripe fruit. This recipe will also help satisfy both the pie eaters who like fruit pie, and those who like cream pies.

Early peaches come into groceries and markets starting in May, and will continue through the summer peach season, that generally ends by October. Look for fruit that is firm but smells of peaches, and is free of brown spots and mold.

Also, this pie is easiest with freestone peach varieties, where the center pit comes cleanly away from the pulp. You can use cling peaches, but you’ll have to cut the fruit away from the pit.  Redhaven, Fairhaven and Elberta are just some of the varieties you'll find on the market.

Serve pie on large dessert plates, for a generous slice and to allow for a scoop of ice cream on the side.

More Tips for Peaches and Cream Pie

This pie recipe is flexible
  • If you use frozen peaches, thaw and drain thoroughly before use
  • If you like blueberries, try adding a few to this pie
  • If you enjoy this pie, make two! This pie works well as a cool breakfast on a hot summer day, as well as for dessert

As for the crust, I’ve had good results with packaged, refrigerated pie crusts. When I get more practice with a scratch crust, I’ll use that more often. Good pie crust is an art.

I go for the peaches that are "canned" in glass jars. They would be in the refrigerated section at the store.

kimbesa, In a pinch, what brand do you recommend for canned peaches?

kimbesa on 05/26/2013

I didn't give a crust recipe. You just need a single crust, unbaked. That pre-made crust that comes rolled up in a box is fine, for convenience. One day I'll be as good a pie crust as I am at pizza crust. Have to develop a different touch for pie!

Oh, I love peaches in desserts. I'll try your pie :):) Do you put flour in the cream mix as well? If so, how much? And how come you use only 4 tablespoons for the crust? Wait, I see I had asked you about this in September! So 4 tbsp in the cream mix. How much in the crust?

Once you make this, you'll look forward to fresh peaches every year!

Pie is my all time favorite food bar none. I have friends who have several peace trees so I'm looking forward to making and eating this tasty pie. thanks

Four tablespoons.

Mira on 09/02/2012

So how much flour do I put in the cream mix?

Organic peaches sound even more fantastic! I didn't think this pie could get any better but I'll bet that would be great. Thanks!
