Cook Time1 hr
Course: Dessert
Servings: 8


  • 1 double pie crust homemade or store bought
  • 6 cups fresh peaches The amount of peaches will depend on their size but 8 is how many I used
  • 1 cup plus one tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • ½ tsp almond extract
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • pinch nutmeg
  • pinch salt
  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 2 tbsp sugar granulated or turbinado sugar can be used for the top of the pie crust


  • Peel and slice peaches
    Place sliced peaches in a large bowl and sprinkle 1 cup sugar over peaches and allow to sit for one hour, stirring occasionally.
    Prepare pie crust based on recipe or package instructions. Roll dough out and place in a 9inch pie plate and set aside.
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a large baking sheet with foil. Place baking sheet in oven while preparing the pie.
    After the peaches have been sitting for one hour, drain the juice into a large bowl, using a colander.Set peaches in bowl and reserve ⅓ cup of the peach juice and set aside.
    Sprinkle 1 tbsp flour over peaches and toss.
    In a medium saucepan combine cornstarch, the ⅓ cup peach juice, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and cook over medium heat until thickened.
    Remove thickened peach juice from heat and add lemon juice, almond extract and vanilla and pour over peaches.
    Pour peaches into pie crust and top with the top half of the pie crust.
    Combine egg and milk and beat together with fork
    Once top of crust is assembled brush the top with the milk/egg mixture and sprinkle the two tablespoons of sugar on top of the crust.
    Carefully remove hot baking sheet from oven and place pie on center of baking sheet and place in oven.
    Bake until crust is golden brown, about 25 minutes. Reduce temperature to 375 degrees, rotate baking sheet and bake 25-35 minutes longer or until peach juices are bubbly. If the top of the crust gets too brown, use aluminum foil to make a tent over the top.
    Let pie cool on wire rack until filling a set for about two hours.
