I don’t know about you, but around our home we LOVE homemade Peach Pie! Classic peach pie, made from scratch… there is nothing too fancy or difficult to make about it.

However, a freshly baked, warm slice of homemade peach pie is absolutely delicious, especially when served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

Peach pie screams “SUMMER” to me! Each summer I go to a local U-Pick Farm and pick fresh peaches when they are at their peak of freshness! Last year I went 3 different times, and was even able to convince my husband to go with me on one of the trips.

We picked 30 pounds of peaches in the HOT, HOT sunshine! See how red my face is (from HEAT and the shade) in this picture? Yep. It was really HOT that day!

Picking fresh peaches to make a pie on a HOT summer day!
Our haul that particular day was 30 pounds of ripe peaches. It always takes some time to process a load of peaches like this!

Freezing Peaches Lets Me Make Peach Pie Any Time Of The Year!

I freeze a lot of the peaches to have available throughout the following year. It’s a little time-consuming, but worth every minute of my time, in the long run!

It’s sure nice to have delicious, “right off the tree” peaches any time of year we want a peach pie! All I have to do is pull a bag of sliced peaches out of our freezer, and let them thaw!

Thirty pounds of fresh picked peaches will be used to make pies and jam!
All that said… here’s a great recipe for a classic, homemade peach pie. Maybe you will have a chance to make one this summer! Sure hope so… there’s nothing better!

I got this recipe from my trusty Pillsbury cookbook that I received as a wedding present 38 years ago, and have been making peach pies like this ever since!

Fresh peach pie filling is added to unbaked pie crust before baking.

I have always enjoyed making my own pie crusts from scratch, but making this simple pie is even easier if you use store bought pie crusts.

The recipe I use for pie crust is one I received from my Mom when I got married (a LONG time ago). Here is a link to that pie crust recipe, if you’re interested. (DIY-Mom’s Pie Crust!)

Peach pie, baked and ready to eat!

Here’s another picture, from another time I made this yummy peach pie.  See those yummy peach slices inside? THAT’S what I’m talking about…yum!

Peach pie is sliced and served!

As far as I’m concerned, if you have fresh homemade peach pie, you’ve GOTTA have a scoop of vanilla ice cream with it.  I think it’s the law in some states (ha ha)!

You could also drizzle a homemade peach coulis over the pie and ice cream, for a nice presentation, if you want (not shown)!

A slice of homemade peach pie is delicious, served a la mode!
Hope you enjoy it! We sure do! I can’t even begin to count how many peach pies I’ve made over the years, and we never seem to have any trouble finding friends and family to help us eat them! GO FIGURE.

Making a peach pie or any other fruit pie is simply combining the pie filling ingredients, then placing them into an uncooked pie crust. The filling is topped with another piece of pie dough, crimping the edges to form crust, then baking until done!

Ingredients
For pie filling:
  • 5 cups sliced peaches
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tablespoons butter (added to top of pie before putting top crust on)
For Pie Crust:
  • 2 Two pie crusts (homemade or purchased) , trimmed to fit a 9" pie pan. (Purchased or homemade)
  • 1 Tablespoon milk (optional-to make a shiny crust)
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar (optional-to make a shiny crust)
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the sliced peaches (thawed, if using frozen), granulated sugar, flour, cinnamon and lemon juice. Stir gently, to combine.
  3. Place (uncooked) prepared pie crust in bottom of pie pan. Prick crust with tines of fork.
  4. Pour the apple mixture into the pastry-lined pie pan. Spread evenly over crust. Cut the 2 Tablespoons of butter into small chunks and dot the top of the apple mixture with it.

  5. Carefully top pie with the second prepared crust. Seal the crust to bottom crust, then flute the edges of crust. Make a couple small cuts in top crust with a knife (to vent). If a shiny/sugary crust is desired, just brush the top crust of the pie with 1 Tablespoon milk, then sprinkle 1 teaspoon sugar evenly on top.

  6. Bake at 425 degrees for 30-35 minutes, or until lightly browned and juice is bubbly in the center of the pie. I like to put a sheet of aluminum foil on the rack below the rack the pie is cooking on, to catch any juice drips.
  7. Remove pie to a wire rack to cool when done. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes

If making an 8" pie, measurements are as follows: 4 cups fruit, 2/3 cup sugar, 1/4 cup flour, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 Tablespoon lemon juice, 1 Tablespoon butter. Same cooking time (30-35 minutes).
