This recipe is from Farm Journal's Complete Pie Cookbook. I purchased the book in 1970 when I moved into my first apartment after college. In 1972 I made this for my husband and it quickly became his birthday dessert. I just made this pie for friends that came to visit from the State of Washington and they loved it too. Can be made with canned peaches BUT I only use fresh! I make the pie crust the day before and have it chilling in the refrigerator ready to be rolled out.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • pastry dough, for 2-crust 9-inch pie
  • 4 cups sliced peeled peaches (7 to 8 medium)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 5 tablespoons flour
  • 18 teaspoon salt
  • 12 cup sour cream, NOT low fat or 12 cup no fat
  • 14 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 14 teaspoon nutmeg, I use fresh ground

Directions

  1. Spread peaches in pastry-lined 9" pie pan. Combine sugar (RESERVING 2 Tablespoons), flour, salt, and sour cream. Spread over peaches. Adjust top crust and flute edges; cut vents.
  2. Mix remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Sprinkle over top.
  3. Bake in hot oven 400F about 40 minutes or until peaches are tender and crust is browned.

I made this pie two weekends in a row. The first time was good, but runny. I determine that it was either because I used the light sour cream we were warned against or I didn't cook it quite long enough. This second time was much better. I used the same low-fat sour cream, but I added a little extra flour to thicken it up and that did the trick. Great recipe. I've already gotten compliments on it and requests for more. I used fresh, in season peaches, as well as the Betty Crocker pie crust recipe. I've always used that one. I also did the tight lattice top finish, and it was gorgeous. Check out my posted picture.

Easy making pie. I've made this twice and each time the family loved it. I used home canned peaches from last summer and OMG soo good. I also used Crisco recipe for pie crust and latice top. Before I sprinkled sugar and spices on top I do an eggwash all over crust. You can see big change in appearance in my photo and is crispier is with topping.

Pie was delicious, though I found the filling a little on the runny side, but I may just not have cooked it long enough. I did actually use low-fat sour cream, and it seemed fine (unless that's what made it too runny). I did a lattice crust because I was bored and wanted the extra challenge, but I wouldn't necessarily recomend it for this sort of pie.
