Here’s my Mom’s Peach Pie recipe. My husband and daughters love it.

The peach filling uses fresh peaches and a flour mixture to thicken the sauce. I like to buy freestone peaches vs those that cling to the pit. Some folks swear that cling peaches have more flavor and are more juicy, but trying to peel and slice them is more hassle than it’s worth for me.

The crust is made with shortening, not lard or butter. I’ve been making this pie crust since I was a girl, and it has won a handful of purple ribbons at our county fair. Flaky crust. Golden brown topping with a sugary coating. So yummy!

Plus, it is an easy dough to work with. It comes together nicely to form a ball. Not too sticky, and it won’t fall apart when you’re rolling it out.

A Few Tips on Making Peach Pie

Making Pie Dough

Remember when you’re rolling out your top crust to add some slits so the filling can breath. The design can be simple or elaborate. It’s your choice.

Bake the pie on the next to bottom rack in your oven and allow it to bake until the filling is bubbly and the crust is a deep golden brown. This should ensure that your bottom crust is cooked through.

I hope you will enjoy my Mom’s Peach Pie as much as we do.
