This Peach Pie recipe is easy to make with fresh peaches and simple ingredients just like grandma used to make. Includes how to freeze peach pie filling.
I love warming a slice up in the microwave and enjoying it with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream on top.
How To Make Peach Pie
Start by peeling and slicing enough yellow peaches to get 6 cups of sliced peaches. Add granulated sugar and stir until the slices are coated. Cover and set aside for 30-60 minutes.
Drain and reserve the sweetened peach juice from the peach slices. Transfer the sliced peaches to a separate bowl and set aside.
Can I use frozen peaches in this recipe?
Yes, frozen peaches can be a great option when fresh peaches aren’t available. Or for when you don’t feel like peeling and slicing peaches. You’ll need to thaw them before making the peach pie.
Stir together the brown sugar, cornstarch, ground cinnamon, and ground nutmeg in a saucepan until combined.
Add the reserved peach juice and whisk until smooth.
Bring the sauce to a boil and then reduce heat. Simmer and stir until the sauce thickens.
Pour the sauce over the sliced peaches and stir until coated. Once you have the peaches coated you can either freeze the filling at this point or go directly to putting it in the crust.
How To Freeze Peach Pie Filling
Transfer the coated peaches to a gallon-sized freezer bag.
Seal the bag removing as much of the air as possible. Lay the bag of peaches in a 9-inch pie dish.
Place both the dish and the peaches in the freezer until frozen and then remove the pie dish from the freezer leaving the bag behind until ready to use.
Put one 9-inch pie crust into a 9-inch pie dish. You can find my easy Homemade Pie Crust recipe here.
Fill it with either the frozen peach pie filling (as shown in the photo above) or with the sliced peaches covered with the sauce (if you skipped the freezer step).
Top with another 9-inch pie crust. You can add strips of pie crust to make a lattice or add the whole crust with slits cut into it for venting.
Bake at 450˚F for 10 minutes and then at reduce heat to 350˚F and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the filling is bubbly. Cover edges loosely with foil, halfway through baking, if they are getting too brown.
Allow the pie to cool completely. Cover loosely with plastic wrap or foil and store in the fridge.
Serve slices of peach pie with vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel syrup on top.
