This light, flaky, and irresistibly delicious Peach Pie is a “must make” for summer!
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!
Peach Pie Recipe
To make this pie you will need:
a grill (tips for baking below)
peach pie recipe (below)
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.
Prepare the filling and then pour it into the skillet. Drop the butter over the top.
Press remaining pie crust over the peach filling and start to press edges together with your fingertips.
Brush egg over the top of the pie and then cut the top several times to vent.
Cover pie in foil and place on the grill over low heat. Bake for 1 1/2 hours (turning once) and then remove foil. Continue baking for 30 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
Carefully remove from grill and allow to cool for at least 15 minutes before cutting into the 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!
