Lemon Peach Pie
#ourtablestories | Vol 24
We decided to start another week on the right foot… with dessert. During a recent trip to our local wet market, I was drawn to all of these gorgeous peaches. And this Lemon Peach Pie came into our mind.
We haven’t made one yet this month and one of our favorite things about every season is pie. The combination of fresh fruits with herbs and pies or galettes are a good opportunity to do that. And here is our chance.
Our favorite part of this pie recipe (besides how it tastes) is the anticipation of it. Since you can sit back and let the oven do most of the work, you get to really enjoy the smells as they fill the room. The aromas of pies baking always bring me so much happiness – even a Monday can’t take from us.
- 4-5 large peaches, pitted, peeled and cut into thick slices - 1/4 cup sugar - Zest and juice of 1 lemon - 1 tablespoon of fresh thyme - 2 tablespoons flour - Optional: We used pre-made pie crusts (2 per box), but I highly recommend making your own for a fresh flavor.
1) Preheat oven to 180 C. Roll out one roll of the pie crust and line the bottom of a deep pie dish. 2) Toss peaches with sugar, lemon zest, and juice, thyme, and flour. Transfer into the pie pan on top of the bottom crust. Roll out the other half of the pie crust. Make the top pie crust of your choice. (Note: We made a lattice crust.) Sprinkle with sugar.
3) Place a baking sheet on a lower rack beneath the pie pan to catch any juices that might boil over. Note: If you skip this step and the juice boils over, you will have to clean your oven to avoid filling your kitchen with smoke. 4) Bake for 50 minutes to an hour or until the crust is golden and the juices are bubbling. Let cool for about 15 minutes before serving.

The crust itself also has a bit of almond flavor thrown in, for an amazing scent fresh out of the oven. We couldn’t resist finishing off the thick lattice with an extremely generous sprinkling of turbinado sugar for a crunchy, candy-like top. This peach and lemon pie showcase these peaches perfectly, with a deep dish form so as to stuff as many peaches into a single pie as we could… naturally. xoxo, the sisters
