Peach Pie

My sister-in-law, Jenny, makes a fabulous peach pie. Her recipe is the best of both grandmothers. My grandmother’s secret was to sprinkle the top of the pie with cinnamon and sugar. Jenny’s grandmother had the perfect filling.

You will want to take the time to make the crust yourself. Really it doesn’t take that much extra time and you get a wonderfully flaky crust!

Grandmother’s Pie Crust Recipe

For 2 crust pie:

  • 2 C. all purpose flour
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¾ C. shortening
  • 1/3 C. ice cold water

Sift flour and salt together.  Cut in shortening with a fork until crumbly.  Sprinkle water slowly into mixture.  Combine ingredients with hands; working quickly to form a ball.  Divide into 2 parts, trying not to handle it too much.  With floured hands, turn onto floured surface and roll into a circle, approximately 14 inch diameter.  With a knife, cut decorative slits in the top crust.  Fold crusts into ¼’s to easily transfer to pie pans.

Whenever I get a bunch of peaches I am going to try canning this peach filling like my homemade apple pie filling.

    I baked it last night. Great recipe. I just started my pie baking craze and this is only my fifth.
    I am new to pie baking, but I do know what I like. The only thing I would change is the amount of sugar.
    I would go with 1 to 1-1/4 sugar for the filling and sprinkle very, very little for the top.
    I bought very tart (not ripened) peaches and the sugar was very present.
    My change: 1+ cup of sugar for the filling, no sugar on top.

    Amazing flavor. Had a little too much filling, cooked over. Had a cookie sheet under, so no problem. Next time I won't put it all in.
