Wait, what?! Did she say lemon jello peach pie? I did and it is such a perfect way to enjoy all of those juicy globes of sweet nectar that are in season.

What Peaches are Best for Peach Pie?

I’d recommend yellow over white but it may depend on what looks better to you. White peaches are juicy and have a light fragrance but don’t pack enough punch for me. They need more help than the yellow peaches which are intensely flavorful and aromatic.

Our sweet friend owns a darling clothing boutique called, So Perla and over the years we’ve struck up a friendship. Why no we haven’t ever met in person, but that’s kind of how business goes these days. We connect online because of our jobs and one day we will have lunch.

In the meantime we love to connect on food which involves this no bake peach pie. Well, no you do have to bake the crust so I guess it’s not totally no-bake but it’s close.

A fresh peach as summer is fading away has become such a treat for Cade and I. Maybe we are getting old but fresh from the farm or orchard has become like candy to us. This is a pie to enjoy on your back porch and I promise that you can do it. Even if you think you can’t make pie, you can. You can make this one.

Start with my mom’s fail proof pie crust. You can use shortening or butter, or even do half and half which is what I like. Start by whisking together the flour and salt. Salt is essential pie making. It gives just enough flavor to the crust and helps to balance the sweet filling. Now whisk an egg and vinegar in a glass measuring cup. Add a few, 3-4 ice cubes and fill it to the 1/2 cup measure mark with water.

Tablespoon by tablespoon add the water while you use a fork to gently stir together the dough. Stop when the dough is shaggy and not completely together. Divide into two crusts, wrapping one tightly in saran wrap and place in a freezer bag to store in the freezer for the next time you need another crust.

Roll out the remaining dough and gently fold it in half and then in half the opposite way creating a wedge. Place the dough in a pie plate and gently lay it open.

The most important part about forming the crust is to not stretch the dough or it will shrink when baking. Trim the edges to just over hang the sides and then fold them under to make a thicker crust. Press with a fork, or crimp the edges with your fingers. Prick all over the inside and up the sides of the dough with a fork, do not prick the top edges. Bake at 375 for about 15-20 minutes. Allow to cool.

What Makes Pie Crust Tough?

Too much water makes a sticky dough, which results in a tough and chewy crust.

Too little liquid will cause your pastry to crack and fall apart during rolling and shaping.

Peel and slice your peaches. Set aside.

Fold the peaches into the thickened mixture and dump into the pie crust. Refrigerate for 4 hours or up to overnight. Serve with freshly whipped cream.

 Is It Possible to Save Whipped Cream That Has Separated?

If by “separate” you mean that you’ve overwhipped it and turned it to butter and buttermilk, unfortunately no.

The good news is that once you drain it through some cheesecloth, you’ve got lovely fresh butter.

On the other hand, if you are referring to whipped cream you made yesterday that has been “weeping” (now it is sitting in a pool of its own tears), the answer is that it is fine to use, though not quite as good as it would have been yesterday.

  • I’m very excited to find this recipe. A hairdresser gave me a vintage recipe much like this several years ago, but it included blackberries. I made it and it was delicious, but I misplaced where I’d written down! After combing the Internet, yours is the only one I’ve seen like it. Yum!!

  • This looks really good…but, my hubby does not like peaches. How do you think substituting either blueberries or raspberries would taste? Those pair well with lemon usually.

    • I’m sure you could use either but watch the amount of liquid and you’ll for sure want to use more fruit. 🙂
