Fresh Peach Pie

This is my favorite summer pie. Actually it's right up there with my all time favorites.

Baked pie shell
1 cup fresh peaches, sliced
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon cornstarch
2 cups cold water
1/3 cup white corn syrup
1 3-ounce package peach gelatin
Red and yellow food coloring, optional

Wash and peel peaches* and slice. Combine remaining ingredients. Cook over medium heat until mixture is smooth and thick, stirring constantly. Cool a little. Place fresh peaches in bottom of baked pie shell. Pour cooked mixture on top. Refrigerate. Top with whipped cream.

You can also make fresh strawberry pie the same way by substituting strawberries for the peaches and strawberry gelatin for the peach gelatin.

*I peel the peaches by putting each one into boiling water for about 30 seconds and then running it under cold water. The peels slip right off that way.


  1. This is how they would make fresh peach and strawberry pies at Marie Calenders. YUM!

  2. I can honestly say I have never made a peach pie before -- this looks so easy -- can't wait to try it!
