Peach Cream Cheese Pie

Peach season means peach pie of any kind. I like them all. The cream cheese layer in this pie gives it a nice tart flavor. This pie doesn't take long to make especially if you use a store bought crust.
You will need a total of 8 medium sized peaches for this recipe.
  • 1/2 cup peaches, pureed (you will need 2 medium sized peaches for this)
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice (juice of large lemon)
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese (half 8 oz block)
  • 1/3 cup icing sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 6 medium peaches, peeled, pitted, and sliced
  • 8" baked pie shell, make your own or buy ready made crust.
  1. In blender puree two peaches that have been peeled, pitted and chopped. Set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan whisk together sugar and cornstarch until well blended. Add puree, water, and lemon juice. Bring to boil and cook until thickened. Once it boils it will thicken quickly. Remove from heat and allow to cool. This is the sauce mixture.
  3. In a small bowl beat together cream cheese, icing sugar, and vanilla until creamy.
  4. Spread on baked and cooled pie shell.
  5. Fold peaches into cooled sauce and spoon over layer of cream cheese mixture.
  6. Refrigerate until thickened. Serve plain or with whipped cream.
  7. Serves: 8 to 10

  4. This looks fabulous! My husband and I have been thrilled by all the very sweet Palisades peaches in our local Colorado stores so I can't wait to make this1

  5. This would taste delicious! I love summer peaches.

  6. Peach pie is one of my favorite desserts, after cherry pie. This looks very tasty !

  7. I saw this recipe yesterday and thought it looked delicious and I thought I had all the ingredients at home to make this. I got home and there were only 1 and 3/4 of a second peach.

    Here's what I did: I took some frozen mango from the freezer and one slice of peach for the puree. I cut the sugar down to 1/3 cup as well. Then instead of six more peaches I used the remainder of the 1 and 3/4 peaches left and sliced them very thinly and mixed that in. The pie was perfect and made from only two peaches and a handful of mango!


  8. When it's peach season I can't get enough of them. My standby is peaches and ice cream but I can't wait to try this.

  9. That looks so delicious! I can't wait to try this with our "in the markets now" Ontario peaches!! Thanks for sharing this recipe Betty.

  10. Made this on the weekend-SO good! Definitely a keeper.

  11. I made this the other night. It was soooo good!

  12. 87 yr old mom made it...delicious. SIL made it....delicious. I made it...DISASTER. Accidentally grabbed baking soda instead of corn starch...couldn't figure out why it boiled over in the pan....couldn't figure out why it didn't thicken...took a bite with my guests and immediately figured out why. Hubby asked if it was supposed to fizz in your mouth.

  13. Made this wonderful pie and took it out to our family who were camping at Harrison. Bought a can of whip cream and the response was now this is "Glamping"!!!! Making it again tomorrow am to take with us to Cultus Lake for another day of being with our family who are camping. It is easy to make and the taste pure heaven. Will be also making it for our first bible study in early September.

  14. Oooooh Betty - This one is a winner. We got a case of peaches and of course, they all ripened at the same time. I made it tonight, but because I don't use white sugar, I substituted for coconut sugar. So, so good!
