This light, flaky, and irresistibly delicious Peach Pie is a “must make” for summer!

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Keyword: Peach Pie
Servings: 8 servings
Author: Amanda Rettke
  • 1 15-ounce package pastry for a 9-inch double crust pie
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 5 c peeled and sliced peaches
  • 1 tbsp. fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 c all-purpose flour
  • 1 c granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 tbsp. cold butter diced into small cubes
  1. Place the sliced peaches in a large bowl, and sprinkle with lemon juice. Mix gently.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Sprinkle over the peaches and mix gently.

  3. Line the bottom and sides of a 9-inch oven-safe skillet with one of the pie crusts.
  4. Pour peach filling into the pie crust and then drop dollops of butter on top. Cover with the other pie crust, and press the edges together with your fingertips, sometimes called “fluting” the edges, so they are sealed.

  5. Brush the egg over the top crust. Cut several slits in the top crust to vent steam.
  6. Cover pie with a foil tent and secure the edges.
  7. Heat grill to 350°F.
  8. Place the skillet on the grill rack. Cover and grill for 1 1/2 hours or until filling is bubbly. (I checked the pie 3 times and the temperature ranged from 350-450 degrees throughout that time.)

  9. After 1 1/2 hours, remove foil and bake for another 30 minutes, allowing the crust to turn golden and flakey.

  10. Remove from grill and allow pie to cool for at least 15 minutes before cutting into.

  11. Optional: Serve with whipped cream and sliced peaches sprinkled with cinnamon.

  12. See notes on how to BAKE this peach pie.

Perfect Peach Pie

We are going to bake this peach pie on the GRILL! Grilling the perfect pie starts with a great recipe. After finding the perfect peach pie and adjusting the recipe for grilling, I decided to use store-bought pie crust. I made this choice for two main reasons:

The overall bake time for this grilled pie was about 2 hours, so utilizing the convenience of a pre-bought crust was a big plus! You can, of course, make yours from scratch.

Store bought pie crusts have come a long way. They really are delicious and reliable. I have made the pie with pre-made and homemade crust and no one can tell the difference!

Start out by cutting your peeled peaches into thin slices, then set aside.

Take one of the pre-made pie crusts and press it into a greased skillet. Score the bottom gently.

How to Make Peach Pie

Tips to make sure your Grilled Pie is amazing:

I placed an oven mitt next to the grill. I was tempted (more than once!) to reach in and grab the handle of the skillet, but thankfully my oven mitt was sitting off to the side. Seeing it reminded me to be safe while grilling.

I have made this pie with ripe peaches (juicy and soft) as well as firm peaches. Both worked really well and tasted amazing, but my family preferred the consistency of the firm peaches.

This grilled pie can be changed up to fit your favorite flavors. Try using 3 cups of peaches and 2 cups of blueberries, or all strawberries, or even a mixed berry! Once you have the basic recipe and technique down, the options are endless.

How to Bake Peach Pie

Follow the recipe directions for ingredients and assembly. You can use a traditional pie dish instead of a skillet of you prefer. Cover edges loosely with foil. Bake at 400°F for 50-60 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Remove foil. If you want a more golden crust you can check the pie at 45 minutes, remove the foil, and continue baking for 10-15 minutes.

Cool on a wire rack.

Serve the Perfect Peach Pie with whipped cream or ice cream for an amazing summertime dessert that keeps your kitchen cool and your family happy!
