Fresh Peach Pie

We have family visiting from the Okanagan this weekend, so we are also enjoying the ‘fruit of their vines’. They brought us peaches that are incredibly juicy and delicious! Here's a family favorite fresh fruit pie, which we shared with our guests last night.

Fresh Peach Pie
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 tablespoons peach jello
  • 5-6 cups fresh peaches, sliced
  • 1 baked piecrust (9 or 10 inch)
  1. Mix water, sugar and cornstarch in saucepan and boil until thickened. (Or use microwave oven.)
  2. Remove from heat and add the peach jello powder.
  3. Cool until lukewarm. 
  4. Stir in peach slices and pour into prepared crust.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  6. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream.
Good food is all the sweeter when shared with good friends.


  1. That peach pie looks awesome, Judy!
    I try to make at least one peach pie when they are in season.

  2. Oh Judy, for someone "pie challenged" like me this is a great recipe! thanks...

  3. Yummy!! I am so hungry right now!

  4. See, now this is one of those oldie goldies that we've all made for years. . and yet there are probably so many people that have never had this delcious recipe. . .I could go for a slice of that pie.

  5. Peach pie is one of my favorites. I love the freshness of this particular recipe. I'm sure it was yummy. Kathy

  6. Yummy! This looks good! I don't know where I've been, but last night we ordered a piece of pie at a restaurant and it cost over $7!! My first thought was, are they going to bring us a whole pie? What are we doing? Paying for the Chef's Culinary School loan debts?
    Oh, but sometimes it's fun to be served, right? And then we can go back to making our own with joy!

  7. Hey...good old fashioned peach pie! Yummy...thanks Judy! Sure brings back memories

  8. I think I missed out on my peach pie this year, but the blackberries are just starting to ripen in my back field.

  9. Love this pie! I've never made a fresh peach pie before but found this website and decided to give it a try. Can the peaches along with the glaze be frozen in vacuum-packed bags and used sometime this fall or winter? Have some more peaches and this is the recipe i want to use them for (before they all get too ripe!). Thanks! Robin

  10. Love this pie! I've never made a fresh peach pie before but after finding this website decided to give it a try. Can the peach/glaze mix be frozen in vacuum packed bags and used this winter for a pie? Thanks! Robin
