Golden Peach Pie

Years ago, I entered this pie in the Park County Fair in Livingston. It won a first-place blue ribbon plus a purple ribbon for best all-around! Family and friends agree with the judges—it's a perfectly peachy pie. —Shirley Olson, Polson, Montana

  • Makes
    8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 sheets refrigerated pie crust
  • 5 cups sliced peeled fresh peaches (about 5 medium)
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch

Directions

  • Line a 9-in. pie plate with 1 crust; trim, leaving a 1-in. overhang around edge. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine the peaches, lemon juice, orange zest and extract. Combine the sugar, cornstarch, nutmeg and salt. Add to peach mixture; toss gently to coat. Pour into crust; dot with butter.
  • Roll out remaining crust to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; cut into strips. Arrange over filling in a lattice pattern. Trim and seal strips to bottom crust; fold overhang over. Lightly press or flute edge. Cover the edges loosely with foil.
  • Bake at 400° for 40 minutes. Remove foil; bake until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly, 10-15 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack. Store in the refrigerator.

    First time making a peach pie--OMG Amazing. I used vanilla because I don;t care for almond. DIdn't have any oranges so skipped peel and had to throw in one nectarine because only had 4 peaches. LOVED IT! Did a lattice crust--so pretty

    Oh, my! So simple but so good! I used homemade pie crust but was inspired to make the lattice like in the picture. It turned out pretty as a picture! A very tasty peach pie that we will be making again and again!

    My family and I loved this pie! A wonderful way to showcase my fresh peaches; filling baked up so nicely, with a great consistency. I followed recipe as written except I used vanilla extract in place of almond, and sprinkled the top with cinnamon-sugar. Scrumptious!

    Oh my goodness. Eating a piece of this pie as I write. Sooooo delicious. I baked it yesterday. Took out of oven around 1:00 in afternoon. Served it with ice cream around 6 with ice cream. After being in fridg all night it is so much better this morning with no ice cream. I did add 1/4 tsp. cinnamon. I also put a full top crust on it instead the strips. Kept the nutmeg. Will keep this recipe.

    Very good. I used my own pie crust recipe, though. The orange zest helped the flavor.

    This is definitely my new go-to peach pie recipe. I made it exactly as written..... I loved that the pie set up nicely too with the help of the cornstarch, as I find that peach pie can be quite runny. LOVED this!

    Oh my stars, this pie is so good. The citrus flavors and the almond extract really enhance the peach flavor. The only change I made was to use my homemade pastry crust recipe but the filling was exactly the same. My new go to peach pie recipe.

    This pie was a hit! I made it for company and there wasn’t s simple piece left! This pie has a great balance of peach flavor and sweetness. The almond and orange are a great touch. I did not have and orange to zest, so I used orange extract instead. This will be my new peach pie recipe!

    I had some fresh peaches to use up. My guests gobbled up this pie. I used a little less nutmeg and added a touch of cinnamon.
