A different type of pie and very good. My husband would eat the whole pie if I allowed him.

Deeeelicious! I followed another reviewer's advice and added more spices: 1/8 tsp ginger and 1/4 tsp nutmeg and doubled the cinnamon. I also added a crumble topping of 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup flour, and cut in enough butter to make it moist and crumbly (I think up to a 1/4 cup). Sprinkle it on top and pop it in the oven. Baking time and temp stay the same. YUM! Read More

The flavor of this pie was pretty good but the appearance (kind of grey) and texture (kind of gloppy) were not as appealing as I'd hoped. I adore nectarines so I was excited to try it but I'd try a different recipe next time. (I sliced the nectarines as others recommended and otherwise followed the recipe exactly.) Read More

Yum! Here is a hint to help get the skins off easier. Before you put the fruits in the boiling water cut a small X in the bottom with a pairing knife then after blanching them in the boiling water and cooling them you can just peel them like a banana. Read More

I've made this pie two times now. The first time I made it I took the skins off the nectarines. Second time I didn't bother to do that. We liked the pie better with the skins on and it was less work! It was a real hit. Absolutely delicious. Read More

I went looking for some ideas for me to do some thing with my nectarines. I found this recipe and it decided to makie it. It was fantastic! After looking at the recipe and reading through the reviews I came up with a few changes I wanted to try. Here are the changes I made. I made a one crust pie. I did not peel the nectarines. I cut the nectarines in slices and since I used what I picked off my tree I filld up the pie pan using a circular pattern so the whipping cream could still flow through. Instead of a pie crust topping I made a crumb topping with brown sugar flour cinnamon & brown sugar. Then I sprinkled the top with sliced almonds. I left everything else the same. I cooked the pie for only 30 min. and when it was time to cut it it was a little on the runny side. It was difficult to serve. Maybe I should have cooked it longer. I am not sure. I made another one the next night for another get together and baked it about 6 min. longer but it was still a bit runny. Both times the pies were slightly warm while cutting. I am wondering if the reason why it is running is because I am adding too many necartines. It really didn't matter though because I served it with Breyers French Vanilla ice cream and it was delicious. Both times it was a bit hit and nothing was left over! Read More

I was really impressed with this recipe! I had nectarines that were not very sweet and no one was eating them and I found this recipe and decided to give it a shot. I made a butter crust recipe and followed the directions for the filling exactly (except I actually substituted pancake mix for the flour because I ran out). I thought this was a fantastic change from the usual fruit pie and everyone who tried it agreed. It had a very unique flavor! Will definitely make this again! Read More

This is delicious! I followed the advice of some of the reviewers and doubled the cinnamon added the 1/8 tsp ground ginger and 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg. I also made a crumble crust with 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup flour and 1/4 butter. i topped the pie off with some whipped cream made of heavy whipping cream and powdered sugar. it was one of the best pies i've ever had! my roommate licked her plate she liked it so much.

YUUUM! I cheated a little bit on this pie and used peaches as I had just brought home a bunch from work and it turned out fabulous. I sliced the peaches flat and thin instead of halving them so that there would be more fruit in each bite and put a lattice topped crust sprinkled with cinnamon on top. I used fat free half n half instead of cream and ended up baking it for nearly an hour but my oven is sometimes weird. I took it out and it looked great smelled great and tasted de-vine. Read More

I really liked this pie! I was being really lazy so I didn't make my own crust (used a frozen one) and didn't even peel the nectarines! I added an extra nectarine (mine were a little small) and used vanilla extract instead of almond. I dotted the top with a little bit of butter (about 1 Tbs total) for some added richness. It was fantastic! A really easy pie for a homemade pie taste without lots of work! And I ended up loving the color that the skins gave to the pie. Thanks Vicki! Read More
