Juicy ripe peaches are a summer favorite in my house!  I stalk the farmer’s market in the summer until the fresh peaches appear. Once I gather my bounty of fresh peaches to take home, it’s exciting to begin making so many delicious peach recipes. But I am most eager to make this Classic Peach Pie recipe that’s been in my family for generations! This is such a simple, yet scrumptious pie recipe and makes the best peach pie!

Classic Peach Pie Recipe

I get my peach stalking habit from my grandmother. As soon as our small town grocery store or fruit stand got fresh Georgia peaches every summer, she would buy baskets of them and go home to bake this peach pie for dessert. Maybe that is why fresh peach pie has always been a signal to me that summer was in full swing!

How To Make this Peach Pie

To make this pie, you’ll need these ingredients:

  • 2 – Perfect Pie Crust Recipe
  • Peaches – This pie is scrumptious in the summer made with fresh juicy peaches, but you can use frozen peaches (thawed and drained well) or canned peaches (drained well). Enjoy this pie year round!
  • Sugar – You will mix some of this with your sliced peaches and some to sprinkle on top of the crust at the end over the melted butter.
  • All Purpose Flour – It combines with the peaches and sugar to make a thick syrup when you simmer a bit before assembling your pie.
  • Melted Butter – Helps to make such a golden brown, delicious pie crust when brushed atop your beautiful assembled lattice pie crust.

What Makes this the Best Peach Pie?

There are two things that make this peach pie delectable in my mind: the peaches and the pie crust. We’ve already talked about the peaches, now let’s discuss the pie crust.

Since this pie recipe is a double crust with a lattice top, you get plenty of flaky, delicious crust in every bite. Therefore, you want to make sure that you use my Perfect Pie Crust for this pie. It makes all the difference!

Preheat
To make the pie, first preheat oven to 425ºF.

Prepare Pie Crusts
Then prepare two pie crusts according to instructions in the recipe. Arrange one pie crust dough into a pie dish and freeze according to the instructions. Roll the second pie crust dough and cut into 1-inch thick strips, refrigerate until ready to top the peach pie in a lattice pattern.

Prepare the Pie Filling
Place the peaches, sugar, and flour in a large saucepan place on stovetop over low heat. Stir well and simmer over low heat until a thick syrup has formed, about 10 minutes. Then remove from heat and set aside and allow to cool slightly.

Assemble the Pie
Remove the pie plate with the pie crust from the freezer and the pie crust strips from the refrigerator. Pour peaches on top of the bottom dough. Arrange the strips on top of peaches in a lattice pattern.

Final Steps Before Baking
Brush the lattice top with melted butter and sprinkle top of the pie with 2 tablespoons sugar. This makes the lattice crust brown beautifully and have a nice crunch to the crust. I definitely recommend that you not skip that step!

  1. THAT looks decadent, Robyn! Yummy!!

    Happy 4th of July to you and yours!

    xoxo

  2. This looks like the peach pie my mom always made. It’s been one of my favorites since I was a child. Thanks for the recipe.

    • I hope you enjoy it, Betty! There’s nothing like those recipes that remind us of favorite family recipes, I think. Have a great weekend! xo

  3. Robyn, The directions for the pie talks about a cobbler in the last paragraph…do you think the bottom pie crust will be done in 20 minutes?

    • Oh my goodness, Jimmie! Can you tell how much I’m thinking of pies and cobblers?! Thanks for letting me know, I’ve updated the instructions to correct that. I’ve not had an issue with the bottom crust being done in that amount of time, but a little longer never hurts! Just watch to be sure that the pie doesn’t over brown on top. xo

  4. I AM FROM KENYA. WE DO NOT GET FRESH PEACHES HERE. CAN I USE TINNED PRESERVED PEACHES FOR THE FILLING AND DOES IT HAVE TO BE COOKED A BIT ?

    • Hi Shabina,
      You can substitute the fresh peaches with frozen or use canned that you drain. You will still need to cook the peach pie filling as directed. I hope you enjoy it!

  5. I have a bag of organc peaches in the freezer. How can I adjust the recipie to use those. Think I should thaw them out first? Any answer would be appreciated. This looks yummy, and I can’t wait to make it.

    • Hi Joan!
      Yes, they will work perfectly in this recipe! You’ll want to thaw them first and then just follow the rest of the directions in the recipe. I hope you love it! xo

  6. Happy 4th enjoy that peach pie and banana pudding looks yummy

  7. The Peach pie looks really delicious.You can almost taste it.

  8. Can I substitute tapioca flour 1:1 for the AP flour in the filling?
    Thanks!

    • Hi Richard,
      You can use tapioca flour (tapioca starch), cornstarch or arrowroot powder in place of the AP flour in the recipe. If using tapioca flour, the filling will not take as much time to thicken as tapioca flour thickens quickly at low temperatures. For tapioca flour, I usually use about 25% of what the recipe calls for with all-purpose flour. I hope that is helpful! Do let me know how it works for you!

  9. Hi Robyn! What size pie dish did you use for this recipe, and was it deep dish or regular? Can’t wait to make this pie soon! Your recipes are always a huge hit. 🙂

  10. Ha, I was too hasty! I just went to look at the pie crust recipe and it noted 9″. 🙂

  11. *going straight to kitchen*

  12. Could you use thawed frozen peaches instead of fresh?

  13. Can i use canned peaches? Thanks

  14. First timer here! 2 questions do I cook the bottom crust first or add pie filling right in raw? Second do the stops for the lattice need to be frozen as well??

    • Hi Kayla!
      Welcome – I’m happy to have you here! You do not have to bake the crust first. You don’t have to freeze the lattice strips, just refrigerate according to the recipe instructions. I hope you like the pie – it’s one of our family’s summer time favorites!
      Thanks!

  15. Could this be prepared and then frozen for immediate baking at a later date?

  16. Really like this recipe, easy and quick pretty fool proof.

  17. why do you freeze the bottom?
    freeze according to directions? what directions?
    thx
