Very good pie! We used fresh peaches which is definitely a must do. We had so many peaches we ended up making two pies. This pie has the perfect balance of sweetness and tartness. We loved it so much that the night we made the pies, we ate a whole one. My daughter wrote down the whole recipe! We can't wait to make (and eat) it again!!!
Delicious! I used peaches that were still a little hard and therefore I believe did not create an adequate amount of juice causing the sauce to be too think to combine properly with the peaches. It was still amazing though. Very Good Pie. I will make this again with some nice ripe juicy peaches.
The pie is awesome, except putting foil on it at the start of baking pulled off half the crust off. Do all the above, except add foil after 15-20 minutes baking. Take it off towards the end.
This is the first recipe I've tried for a peach pie and it is delicious and a major success!! I used canned peaches because I couldn't find any good fresh ones. So, I reduced the cooking time just a bit. I also did a full crust on top and did an egg wash and sprinkled with sugar. Amazing. Thank you for the recipe!
YUM!!!! This was the first scratch peach pie I have ever made. I doubled the recipe because I needed 2 pies. Worked perfect. This pie is sooooo yummy!!! After draining the sugar mixture from the peaches, I let them sit in the colander for about 15 minutes to let the rest of the water drain so the pie wouldn't be runny. This was the perfect amount of sweetness. The lemon juice gave it a fresh twist without making it tart. I made the crust from scratch too. Well worth the effort. The whole family loved the pie. I gave the 2nd one to a neighbor and they loved it to. I followed the recipe exactly and I wouldn't change a thing. One of the best peach pies I have ever tasted!!!! You can use a store bought crust, but if you have a food processor, make the crust to and it will just be out of this world!!!!!
