Vintage Pretty Peach Pie Recipe

A beautiful and delicious fresh fruit peach pie that is truly summer in a bite!


  • One pie crust Pre-made or from scratch, baked
  • 6 large ripe peaches peels removed (2 for topping the base, 1 for the spiral garnish on top, and 3 for the filling)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 tsp. almond extract
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • garnish: whipped cream


  • If you have not already done so, bake the pie crust in a pie plate. Set aside to cool.
  • Lay two peaches worth of peach slices down on top of the baked pie crust. With the third sliced peach, arrange a spiral pattern on the top of the pie (shown above).
  • In a food processor, blend 3 peaches, sugar, cornstarch and water. After blended, pour into a saucepan and heat over medium high heat until mixture comes to a boil. Add the almond extract and butter and stir. Pour over the peaches and pie crust.
  • Chill in the fridge for several hours until set up. Serve with whipped cream.
