1 9x13-inch dish



  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 4 tablespoons white sugar, divided

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup shortening

  • 1 large egg

  • ¼ cup cold water

  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted


  • 3 pounds fresh peaches - peeled, pitted, and sliced

  • ¾ cup orange juice

  • ¼ cup lemon juice

  • ½ cup butter

  • 2 cups white sugar

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg


  1. Make crust: Sift together flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, and salt in a medium bowl. Work in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Whisk together egg and cold water in a small bowl. Sprinkle over flour mixture; work with hands to form dough into a ball. Wrap with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  3. Roll out 1/2 of the chilled dough to 1/8-inch thickness. Place in a 9x13-inch baking dish, covering the bottom and halfway up the sides.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 20 minutes.

  5. Make filling: Mix peaches, orange juice, and lemon juice in a large saucepan. Add butter and cook over medium-low heat until butter is melted. Stir together sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a bowl; mix into peach mixture until combined. Pour into baked crust.

  6. Roll remaining dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into 1/2-inch-wide strips. Weave strips into a lattice over peaches. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar, then drizzle with melted butter.

  7. Bake in the preheated oven until top crust is golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes.
