Simple Summery Peach Pie

July 19, 2011

Living in Alabama does have its perks, especially living near easy access to fresh Chilton County Peaches. I have been visiting Durbin Farms since I was a child, and they still have the most unbelievable peaches. These peaches (below) were bigger than a softball, sweet, juicy and bursting with fresh peach flavor. A friend of mine passed me this recipe for Simple Peach Pie, and it really can’t get much easier than this. It’s fast with very few ingredients, and it was gone before I could turn around. When you have peaches this sweet, you don’t even need vanilla ice cream on the side, but it is a good addition :).

Simple Peach Pie

Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 45 minutes
Yield: 12 to 16 servings
1 cup sugar plus 2 tablespoons, divided
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
5 cups fresh peaches, peeled and sliced
1 package (15 oz.) refrigerated pastry for double-crust
2 tablespoons butter
1. Preheat oven to 425F.

2. Stir together 1 cup sugar, flour, and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add peaches to flour mixture, tossing gently.

3. Place pastry in a 9-inch pie plate; dot pastry with butter. Add peach mixture. Cover with top crust. Cut slits in the top, seal and crimp the edges. Sprinkle top with remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar.

4. Cover and bake 35 to 45 minutes or until crust is brown and juice begins to bubble. Remove foil for the last 15 minutes of baking.

You know, being a Georgia girl and all, that I would *love* a peach pie! I need to put this one on my list for weekend baking. Gorgeous!

Oh my goodness Alison! I'm coming to visit you and sit on the porch with a slice of this lil' bit of heaven. Or you can bring some up and chill in the hammock for a bit :)

What a gorgeous pie! I've often heard about Southern peaches. One day I hope to try them.

Nothing like a fresh peach. Love to eat them, bake with them, can them. Not crazy about peach jam, for some reason. I have a really good "push the crust in the pan" recipe that I love for summer pies. :) Happy Day, friend!

That looks so amazing. I love peaches. We have them in my area, but they are nothing compared to the giant juicy peaches from California. Oh my, now I NEED peach pie immediately. Great post.
