How do you keep the pie crust from getting soggy?

There are two big tricks to make sure that your bottom crust doesn’t get soggy. Number one trick is to cool your filling before you pour it in your pie dish on top of that uncooked crust. Cooling it will allow the liquids to absorb back up into the cornstarch and not into the uncooked crust. I like to pour my hot filling into a baking sheet right when its done cooking on the stove, then spread it out and let it sit for at least 30 minutes.

The second trick is to put a cookie sheet inside the oven, while you preheat it, for about 30 minutes. Once your oven is fully preheated, place the uncooked pie on top of the hot cookie sheet inside your oven. When you do this, the hot cookie sheet will ensure that enough even heat is getting to the bottom of your pie, cooking the bottom crust fully and evenly.

Can you make peach pie with canned or frozen peaches?

Yes, while fresh peaches are ideal, canned or frozen peaches can be used out of season. Be sure to adjust the sugar and thickeners as canned peaches may have more moisture than fresh ones.

How do you store peach pie and how long does it last?

You can actually store pie right on your counter! Just loosely cover with plastic wrap and leave at room temperature for up to 2 days. If you have any pie left after 2 days, move it into the fridge for longer storage. Although I wouldn’t keep a pie around for more than 4-5 days before tossing it, especially a fruit pie.

Are there variations to the basic peach pie recipe?

Absolutely! You can add other fruits like raspberries or blackberries for a mixed fruit pie. Spices like nutmeg or ginger can also add a different flavor profile to your peach pie.
