I am revisiting this peach pie recipe that I made in 2011 because we just went peach picking again this week. I know it seems super late in the season as our intention was apple picking, seems early for that too. We were pleasantly surprised how many peaches were still on the trees. They said the weather this summer caused the late peach crop. I am not complaining, love fresh peaches just not peeling them.
This is why I revisited this recipe, it is so simple and the best part is that you don’t have to peel the peaches. Just slice them and add them to your crust. (store-bought for us). In an hour, you have a flavor of summer that will soon be gone.
I love that this peach pie recipe has an oatmeal topping as well. Feels like you are getting a little nutrition from the fruit and oats! I even used whole wheat flour because I was all out of the other! Plus, it’s a healthier option than a second crust which is more popular on fruit pies usually.
Use your clean hands or a pastry tool to make the crust. Kids can help with this step!
You can use a pre-baked pie crust for a faster peach pie recipe, or cook your crust a bit before putting your filling in so the top doesn’t burn while making sure your crust is cooked through.
Of course, no peach pie recipe is complete without a scoop of yummy vanilla ice cream on a warm or even room temperature pie. Kids love the chance to have extra ice cream on their dessert, and adults will enjoy that extra cream.
If you find a local orchard that will let you come out and pick leftover peaches, you can find great deals on slightly bruised pieces of fruit. If you can manage this, then you’ll find you save tons of money and you can freeze or can the excess fruit for future pies, cakes, cookies, and treats. One of my favorite parts of peach picking is the fact that I can have delicious fruit for months at a low cost. You can easily wash, slice, and freeze in vacuum storage bags and use the peaches up to six months down the road. If you are good at home canning, you can make your own homemade fruit pie filling.
This easy summer peach pie recipe is a perfect choice for any weekend potluck with your friends and family. Fruit pies go great alongside your favorite grilled or barbecued meats, and of course, they are a little bit healthier than other desserts.
