Creamy Peach Pie ranks high on my list of awesome desserts. This pie tastes like summer, filled with juicy and fragrant peaches that have been baked into the creamiest, silkiest custard. Topped with a buttery streusel topping with the slightest hint of cinnamon that works in harmony with all the fresh and sweet flavors. While I love a good old fashioned Peach Pie, this version I must say, is so much more scrumptious. Served with vanilla ice cream and fresh mint leaves, this will easily become your summer go-to dessert.

SHOULD I USE FRESH OR CANNED PEACHES TO MAKE THIS CREAMY PEACH PIE RECIPE?

I made this recipe with canned peaches, do not confuse that with peach pie filling. You can make this recipe with fresh peaches as well. I personally like to use canned peaches, because every slice is perfect, they are sweet and juicy and you can save time on peeling. The fresh peaches are equally delicious in this recipe, just make sure you use ripe peaches and that you peel them. Toss them in 1-2 tablespoons of cornstarch.

CAN I USE FROZEN PEACHES TO MAKE PEACH PIE?

Yes, you can, but make sure you completely thaw them and drain all the excess liquid. I also like to toss them in 1-2 tablespoons of cornstarch.

HOW DO YOU PEEL FRESH PEACHES?

To peel fresh peaches quickly and easily I use the same method I use for peeling tomatoes! Placing the peaches in boiling water for a few seconds and then plunging them into ice water makes the skins slide right off!

  1. Bring a large pot with water to a boil.
  2. Prepare an ice bath on the side.
  3. Cut a small “x” on the bottom of the peaches.
  4. Place peaches in the boiling water for 10-20 seconds or until the skin splits.
  5. Remove with a slotted spoon and immediately place peaches in the ice water bath.
  6. Use a paring knife to peel off the skin.

Like my favorite Apple Crumb Pie, I like to serve this delicious peach pie with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream!

CAN I FREEZE THIS CREAMY PEACH PIE?

Yes, you can freeze this pie. After you bake it, let it cool to room temperature. Wrap it tightly in aluminum foil, I also like to add a good layer of plastic wrap. The frozen pie will keep up to four months.

  1. I just made this peach pie. I have a giant sweet apple tree in my yard so I picked up a couple of apples and chop them up little tiny pieces and added that into the pie. Just delicious.
    I’ve been looking for a recipe like this for years and finally I found it. Thank you so much. But I got to get back to eating another slice so Happy Thanksgiving.

  2. If i were to freeze some, would it be best to bake it first and then freeze to just thaw out later or freeze then bake for the custard part to turn out the best? If baking after frozen, what temp and time works best? Thanks!

    • Yes, you can freeze this pie. After you bake it, let it cool to room temperature. Wrap it tightly in aluminum foil, I also like to add a good layer of plastic wrap. The frozen pie will keep up to four months.

  3. I can’t find peach extract anywhere. Do I have to use it?

  4. Can I substitute 35%cream for18% cream in a rècipe for buttertarts.

  5. Do you bake the pie crust before adding the custard and peaches? sounds like a great recipe.

  6. It looks so yum! Thank you for sharing how to peel the peaches easier. Can’t wait to try this recipe!

  7. Lovely recipes and I am excited to think peach season is coming up . Will be making this pie with fresh peaches.

  8. If you decide to use fresh peaches – how much would you use? 3 cups?

    • Each 15 oz can will equate to approximately 1 1/2-2 cups of peaches, so you’d need about 5 cups of fresh peaches in total.
