Golden Peach Pie Recipe

Golden Peach Pie Recipe

Fourteen years ago, I entered this beautiful lattice-top pie in the Park County Fair in Livingston. It won a first-place blue ribbon plus a purple ribbon for "Best All Around"! My large family—and many friends agree with the judges that it's very delicious.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 5 cups sliced peeled fresh peaches (about 5 medium)
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Milk

Directions

  • 1. Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom pastry; trim even with edge of plate. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine the peaches, lemon juice, orange peel and extract. Combine the sugar, cornstarch, nutmeg and salt. Add to peach mixture; toss gently to coat. Pour into crust; dot with butter.
  • 2. Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie; make decorative cutouts in pastry. Set cutouts aside. Place top crust over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Brush pastry and cutouts with milk; place cutouts on top of pie. Cover the edges loosely with foil.
  • 3. Bake at 400° for 40 minutes. Remove foil; bake 10-15 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 8 servings.

"This is the first peach pie I have ever made and it turned out delicious. I used my own homemade pie crust recipe. Everyone said this pie came out excellent. I did change the almond extract amount to "1/2 teaspoon" and also added "1/4 teaspoon cinnamon". Very easy to make and so extra delicious to eat!"
