Fresh Peach Pie

In continuation of a peach topic (remember, I got a whole box of juicy tender sweet Georgia peaches?) I present to you the fresh peach pie recipe.

Almost hassle free (especially if you use ready to bake pie shell as I did) and very tasty (if ripe sweet tasty peaches are used). Peaches remain uncooked (only shell is baked) and taste as fresh as they can be.

I used leftover peach kompot to prepare gelatin topping for this pie. Peach juice can be used instead (if it doesn’t contain pineapple in it). A bit of peach preserves mixed with some water to get needed amount and consistency will work as well.

Ingredients:


How to prepare, step-by-step:

  1. Prepare ingredients:

  2. Warm up oven, pierce raw pie shell in several places with a fork, and bake until ready according to baking instructions on the packaging (about 25 mins on 350F):

  3. While shell is in the oven, pour gelatin to a pot:

  4. Add peach kompot liquid (or juice) or mix of peach preserve with water (to get about 0.5-0.75 cups in total) to the pot, let it soak for 2-3 mins, then mix everything and put on slow burner. Cook gelatin with the liquid stirring from time to time until gelatin is fully dissolved (but don’t let it boil), then set it aside to cool down (the liquid should get close to viscous consistency):

  7. Make an incision in each blanched peach all the way around the peach up to the pit, then make another incision to quarter the peach and then carefully separate peach quarters off the pit, remove any hard fibers coming off the pit along with the pit, set peach quarters aside:

  11. Slice each peach quarter in 2-3 even parts and neatly arrange them in the pie shell in 2-3 layers (try to avoid having too much empty space between pieces as well as between peaches and shell sides):

  12. Spread the prepared gelatin liquid on top using spoon (and if needed a brush, make sure to cover all peaches with the liquid to preserve their freshness for longer):
