Peach pie in pick-up-able form! My grandmother has made this recipe for over 50 years and it has always been a favorite of mine. My kids LOVE this recipe! This pie is best in my opinion, when it is completely cooled.

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Mix together the flour, 2 tablespoons of sugar, and a pinch of salt in a large bowl. Cut the shortening into the flour mixture until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Beat the egg in a small bowl, and pour it into a 1-cup measuring cup. Pour in enough cold water to total 1 cup, and mix the water and egg into the dough. Mix the dough a few times with your fingers, until it holds together. Divide the dough in half.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Whisk together 3/4 cup of water with the cornstarch in a bowl until smooth, and set aside. Mix 1/2 cup of water with 3/4 cup of sugar in a large saucepan until the sugar has dissolved, and bring to a boil. Whisk the cornstarch mixture into the boiling sugar mixture until thickened and translucent, whisking constantly, about 1 minute; whisk in 1/4 teaspoon of salt and lemon juice, if desired. Combine with the sliced peaches.

  • Roll half the crust out on a floured surface in a rectangle shape about 12 by 20 inches, and fit the pastry into a 10x15-inch jelly roll pan. Roll the second half of the crust out to the same size as the first crust. Pour the peach filling into the bottom crust, and place the top crust on the pie. Crimp and fold the edges to seal, and cut several slits into the top crust.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the crust is browned and the filling is bubbling, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Allow to cool completely to let the filling set up before slicing into squares to serve.

The filling was delicious but I thought the crust was almost like cardboard. I've been making homemade pies for years so I don't think it was over handling which I know can cause a tough crust. As I was mixing it I thought it looked pretty dry. I added a thin glaze to the top that made it more palatable. Read More

After reading some of the reviews I chose to tweak my recipe. I added another tablespoon of sugar to the dough 1/2 tsp cinnamon 1/4 tsp nutmeg to the peach mixture. I too found I had more dough than filling but it was tasty. My husband hates fruit pies but he tried it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and loved it!!!! Read More

Very good and a great take-along for a cookout. Crust came out delicious. In my opinion the filling needed some spices but all-in-all a nice simple way to use peaches! Read More

Very similar to the apple pie slices I make it was good but was a bit tart and needed more sugar in the peaches next time I would also add an extra cup of peaches to have more peaches than crust. Read More

I used really ripe juicy peaches so I added more corn starch and it turned out great. The only change I would make is more sugar in the crust (and maybe some spices like cinnamon or nutmeg) but that is a personal preference. Wonderful recipe. I will be making it again! Read More

After reading the reviews and comments about not enough filling. I made 1 and a half times the recipe. By doing so it made it impossible to eat by hand. Finger pie became Fork pie. It was delicious and I would make it again using the amount of peaches called for especially if wanting to eat by hand. Read More

The lady across the street had loads of very ripe peaches from her tree. I looked on this site and found this recipes and said this is it. I love crust so it was even better. I did add more peaches 5 cups and did add just a little more sugar and it was fabulous. It was a little bit of work to make the crust but with my mother by my side who has perfected crust making we did a good job of it. Loved this recipe. You have got to try it!!! thank you!! Read More
