Peach Pie

One of my favorite things (I have a lot of favorite things) about living where we do is being surround by orchards. Being in the middle of an old apple orchard means we get more apples than we know what do to with, but just down the mountain from us is a peach orchard! Growing up we had a peach tree in our backyard, but almost never got to eat any of the peaches it produced because the birds would get to them first. It seems like we did everything we could to try to save them with no luck. In fact, I remember sitting next to the tree and just watching the birds devourer those peaches that were suppose to be in my belly. Have I mentioned I was an interesting kid? Haha. 

But now I can have all the peaches I want, suck on that birds! So over the weekend we stopped by our local roadside produce stand to by a 1/2 peck of peaches. Side note I love saying peck of peaches now. I used about half of them in this pie recipe and the other half we have just been munching away on. Yummy.
And now onto the Peach Pie Recipe (which won't disappoint!) 

As always I used this pie crust recipe, because it seriously is the best.

Peach Filling Ingredients

6-7 peaches sliced (I used pretty pick slices)
1/4 cup flour
1/8 cup corn starch
1/2 cup plue 1 Tbsp brown sugar (I like my pies a little tart so add more or use white sugar if you want yours sweeter)
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 425F.

Add dry ingredients and vanilla to the peach slices, you want to make sure the peach slices are well covered. Pour peaches onto your crust bottom, then place top crust over on top of peaches, be sure to cut vent holes in the crust. Sprinkle the Tbsp of brown sugar on the top of the pie crust. Place pie in oven for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 350F for an additional 30-45 minutes or until crust is a nice golden brown color. 

Serve warm with vanilla bean ice cream and/or whip cream. Enjoy! 
Let me know if you give this recipe a try!

  1. This looks SO good. I'm planning on picking up a bunch of peaches at the farmers market tomorrow so I can do some canning and make a nice crisp! I'm super jealous that you live by so many orchards. That's kind of my dream in life!
