Pie week: Gold Medal goes to…Peach Walnut Pie

I have never heard of this pie, or even this flavor combo until I came across the recipe for Peach Walnut Pie. I had to go for it because everyone in this house is a sucker for both walnuts and peaches.

Holy smokes it was amazing! It is perfectly balanced between the rich walnut filling and the sweet, tangy peaches. I will be making this with fresh peaches again this summer and as the recipes recommends, canned peaches in the fall. Either way, it is delish!

Peach Walnut Pie - The Recipe

Peach Walnut Pie

1 prepared pie crust

1 lb sliced, drained peaches (canned or fresh peeled)

Filling:

1 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 cup water

3 eggs

2 tbsp melted butter

1 tbsp lemon juice

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Topping:

1/4 cup lightly packed brown sugar

1 tsp lemon juice

 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Stir eggs and then add remaining filling ingredients and stir well. Pour into pie shell and bake for 25 minutes (until filling is golden brown and almost firm)

Meanwhile toss peaches with lemon and brown sugar. When filling is set remove from oven and “gently arrange peaches like the rays of the sun”. Pour the syrup mixture over the top and return pie to the oven for 10 minutes.

Serve warm or cold.

  1. I am inviting myself down there for the next dessert taste-off. I, of course, could make my own here, but what’s the fun in that?!

  2. Now I know what to do with my canned peaches in the refrigerator. Better look at the expiration date. Oh who cares! This looks delicious!
