    I love this recipe because it highlights the red interior of the halved peaches and looks gorgeous. It's faster to prepare because there's less slicing, and the single pie crust saves dough--no pun intended.


    • Pie Dough
    • 1 egg or 2 egg yolks
    • 2 tablespoons flour
    • 2/3 to 1 cup granulated sugar
    • 1/3 cup melted butter
    • Fresh peach halves
    • Whipped cream (optional)


    1. Prepare crust and place into pie plate
    2. Combine and blend well the egg(s), flour, sugar, and butter
    3. Set aside
    4. Halve, peel, and pit tree-ripened peaches
    5. Place them cut-side up in the pie shell.
    6. Pour filling mixture over the top of the peaches.
    7. Add a basic streudel topping if desired (optional--not in original recipe)
    8. Bake 15 minutes at 400 degrees F, then reduce the heat to 300 degrees F and bake about 50 minutes longer.
    9. Serve hot or, if cold, garnish with Whipped Cream.

      I make this peach pie every summer and serve it with vanilla bean ice cream and coffee. However, I use a crust from the New Vegetarian Epicure, the lesser amount of sugar and two egg yolks. The NVE crust is all butter and no shortening. I think it gives it a lighter flavor. We all love this pie and yes, it is especially good the next day (if there is any left!).

        I lost the recipe for this pie and was happy to see it here. It is the best pie ever. The picture does not do it justice.
