Peach Pie Filling



Light-n-Flaky Pie Crust

  1. Sift together flour, sugar, and salt and place in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles very coarse crumbs.
  3. Add cold water, one tablespoon at a time, tossing mixture lightly with a fork or your fingers until mixture can be gathered into a ball. Knead dough lightly several times, then wrap tightly in plastic wrap and chill at least one hour.

Pie Filling

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Toss peaches with lemon juice, then combine with both sugars, salt, tapioca, and vanilla and almond extracts. Allow to stand at room temperature.
  3. Divide chilled pie crust in half and roll one portion out to about 1/8-inch thickness and fit into bottom of a 9-inch pie dish.
  4. Trim edges of pie crust, leaving at least a 1/2 inch overhang. Do not prick!
  5. Spoon filling into pie shell and dot with butter.
  6. Roll out remaining pastry dough and center over filling. Lightly dampen rim of bottom pie crust and press with top pie crust to seal. Trim edges smooth, again leaving at least a 1/2 inch overhang. Lift and fold under overhang, forming a high-fat rim for fluting/crimping.
  7. Flute/crimp rim as desired.
  8. If desired, reroll pie crust scraps and cut into peach and leaf shapes and attach to top crust by dampening shapes with water.
  9. Cut slits in top crust to allow steam to escape during baking.
  10. Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce temperature to 375°F and continue baking for an additional 40 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.
  11. Cover rim of crust loosely with foil after 20 minutes to keep fluted edges from over-browning.
  12. Cool pie on a wire rack for an hour.
  13. Serve at room temperature with Homemade Vanilla Ice cream or creme Chantilly.
Dixie Crystals Insight

If you are short on time, substitute a store-bought refrigerated pie crust for the homemade crust. Chef Eddy’s Pure Butter Pie Crust is a delicious alternative too.
