fresh peach pie with recipe from the peach brothers

Prep Time: 25 Minutes
Cook Time: 40 Minutes
Yield: 6 servings

  • Two 9" unbaked pie crusts
  • 8 medium peaches, sliced
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk

(Optional) Instructions for Blanching:

  • Gently cut an "X" on the bottom of your softened, fresh peaches, only piercing through the skin, not the flesh.
  • Bring a pot of water to boil. Fill a separate, large bowl with ice water.
  • Place peaches into the boiling water for 20-30 seconds. Take out of boiling water and place into ice water mixture until peaches have cooled thoroughly.
  • Peel peaches starting where you cut the "X" into them. Peel until all the skin is gone from your peaches.
  • Place peeled peaches into ascorbic acid or lemon juice to prevent browning while you prepare your cans.

Instructions:

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  • Line a 9" pie pan with pie crust, and press the edges down with a fork.
  • In a medium bowl, mix your fresh peaches, lemon juice, and melted butter.
  • In a small bowl, combine sugar and flour mixture; add peach mixture and mix to coat peaches.
  • Pour the peach mixture into the pie crust.
  • Take the second pie crust and cover the filling; lightly press down edges with a fork to seal.
  • Cut the excess crust along the edge of the pan.
  • Mix egg and milk - lightly coat the top crust with the egg and milk mixture.
  • Cut small slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape; this will help reduce bubbles in your crust.
  • Place pie pan on a baking sheet to contain any drips; bake for 15 minutes.
  • Lower heat to 375°F and bake 25 minutes more, or until crust is lightly browned.
