Peach Pie Passion

Ontario peaches are now available to buy in stores, however, it's still a bit early and some of them are a little hard.  What do you do with not quite ripe peaches?  Cook 'em up into a lovely peach pie of course.

If your peaches are fully ripe, reduce the sugar by half, and reduce the water by half.  The juiciness and sweetness of fully ripe peaches will still create a lovely sweet pie.

With the pie made here, I made a lattice crust for the top.  I usually make peach pie open face, and so this step is optional as creating a lattice crust is a little tricky and takes practice.  Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Peach Pie

Recipe by Fluudbloggler
  • 8 peaches (not quite ripe)
  • 1 tbsp white sugar
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp white flour
  • 4 tbsp water
  • 1 uncooked pie crust*
  • 1 additional uncooked pie cruse for lattice top (optional)
Cooking Directions
  1. Place single pie crust in pie place.
  2. Peel and slice 8 peaches and place in a bowl.
  3. Add sugars, cinnamon and water, and stir until well mixed and all peaches are coated.

  4. Pour into pie crust. Using 8 peaches, the peaches should be piled quite high as they will shrink down while baking.
  5. If making a lattice crust top, slice strips for lattice and weave onto top of pie.
