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


  • 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


  • 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.

"Not usually a peach pie fan but this is a winner. I used the zest of a whole orange and together with the almond extract really adds to the taste. Will definitely make this again."

"I made these in my Emeril mini pie maker and they came out great! (I didn't have any orange peel in the house, so I left that out, but I want to add that next time.)"

"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!"

"I altered slightly. Used 2 bags frozen peaches about 5 cups. Omited lemon juice, orange peel and almond extract as I did not have them. It still turned out wonderful. Will try the other ingredients sometime."

"This is by far the best peach pie recipe I have ever made. Can't wait for Georgia peaches to be in season. I think it's the almond extract that sets it apart from other pies."
