Easy Peach Pie


It is peach season! One of my trees is producing large beautiful peaches that are ready to be picked. My girls helped me pick a few and wanted to make an easy recipe. We decided to make Easy Peach Pie. This recipe can be prepped and in the oven within 15 minutes! The peaches can easily be prepared by using a trick I’ll share, the butter/flour/sugar mixture is combined in a food processor and the crust is premade. Put it all together and it is ready to cook. The cooking and cooling time is long. It will be tempting to eat it hot, but if you wait until it is completely cooled it will not be so runny.

This easy peach pie can be in the oven within 15 minutes. Use fresh peaches and a premade pie crust. Your guests will ask for the recipe!

      It is sold in my store by the canning supplies. It keeps the fruit from browning.
