Peach slab pie is the perfect dessert during hot summer months. When peaches are in season and start showing up at the market, I immediately start craving Grandma’s homemade peach slab pie. What’s really awesome is that making a peach pie from scratch won’t take all afternoon. This yummy peach pie recipe is super simple and twice as easy. In one hour flat you’ll have a beautiful, scrumptious, homemade fruit pie just like mine!

If you can peel a few peaches and you have a small baking tray, you can make a delicious homemade peach slab pie. I make my pie crust from scratch using my food processor, but store-bought pie crusts are excellent too.

Best Peach Pie Recipe Ingredients

In addition to two pie crusts, you’ll need just a few simple ingredients to make this memorable peach pie recipe. (For the full printable recipe, scroll down to the recipe card!) For baking I prefer using yellow peaches over white peaches. Yellow peaches will provide your yummy peach slab pie with that classic peachy taste. Because they’re more acidic they deliver a fabulous crisp tart flavor. White peaches are sweet and have a more delicate taste that can be easily overwhelmed by spices. If using white peaches for this recipe, dial down the cinnamon to 1/2 teaspoon and use just a pinch of nutmeg.

Ingredients for Homemade Peach Pie

To make this delicious homemade peach pie, let’s begin with the peach pie filling. In a large mixing bowl combine granulated sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg and sea salt. Set the bowl aside. Peel and slice about 8 or 9 yellow peaches, enough for 7 cups. Once this is complete, you’re literally half way done to making a peach slab pie!

How to Make Peach Pie from Scratch

Spread one pie crust over a small baking tray. The quarter-sheet pan I’m using here is 9 X 13 X 1 inches.

Spread the peaches over the pie crust in an even layer. This is when I start getting excited! The peaches look so beautiful and juicy, and everything is coming together quite nicely.

Cover the peaches with the second pie crust and cut a few slits across the pie dough for venting. Today I decided to get a bit fancy. I weaved a lattice using five long strips of pie dough and seven shorter strips. Instead of crimping my pie dough around the edges bakery-style, I just rolled the pie dough inward and left it at that.

I think a peach slab pie from scratch looks best when you can tell it’s homemade. It’s those perfect imperfections that make it so beautiful! If the pie dough around the edges seems a bit too thick and bulky, simply pinch off portions and remove them until the crust is the thickness you prefer.

How Long to Bake Peach Pie

Brush melted butter over the top of the pie and sprinkle generously with granulated sugar. Your peach slab pie is now ready for the oven! Bake it at 400 degrees for about 35 to 40 minutes. If your pie crust starts getting too brown, tent the edges with foil. I tented mine during the last 10 minutes of baking.

This is my peach slab pie straight out of the oven. The crust is a lovely golden brown, not too dark. The peach filling is nice and bubbly and beautifully fragrant.

When it comes to making peach slab pie, I absolutely love my small baking trays. I recently bought two of them through Amazon. The lines at the bottom of the trays give them beautiful visual interest which is wonderful when serving peach slab pie at a gathering. They’re also non-stick which is super helpful for serving and cleaning.

  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 7 cups yellow peaches, peeled and sliced
  • 1 teaspoon pure Mexican vanilla (or vanilla extract)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 uncooked pie crusts, homemade or store bought
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter, cooled slightly
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar for sprinkling

  7. Bake for 35-40 minutes. The pie crust should be golden brown, and the peach filling fragrant and bubbly. If needed, tent the pie crust with foil during the last 10-12 minutes of baking to prevent over browning.
