Peaches-and-Cream-Pie

Here’s an amazingly delicious custard and fresh peach pie.

This pie is like a sliceable version of peaches and cream.

The taste of it screams summer to me.

I’ve been making it for years and it’s always a huge family favorite.

This is one of my most requested summer recipes.

There’s a delicious layer of fresh peaches, then a layer of custard, then it’s topped with a wonderful streusel crumb and decorated with fresh peach slices.

The combination is really delicious!

Recipe Notes:

I have to be honest and tell you I generally use a premade pie crust from the supermarket.

A homemade crust would make this pie even more delicious, so if you’re so inclined, use your favorite recipe for a 10 inch pie crust.

You can use a 9-1/2-Inch Pie Plate, which is what I use, or a 10 inch pie plate.

If your peaches are really juicy, dab them off with a paper towel.

You don’t want the fruit to add extra liquid to the custard.

The custard is a snap to make.

All you have to do is mix the ingredients together in a bowl and then pour them over the peaches into the crust.

The custard then sets up as the pie bakes.

This isn’t the type of custard pie that relies on you standing over the cooktop and stirring as it sets up.

Frankly, I find this pie much, much easier to prepare.

The pie bakes in two stages.

The first stage its cooked until the custard is almost done.

Then the pie is topped with the streusel and its baked until the custard is completely cooked through.

You know the pie is baked when the custard is set and the top is golden.

The pie is finished by cooling it completely, then topping it decoratively with fresh slices of ripe peaches.
