This is a simple, quick, old fashioned, baked, two crust peach pie made with canned peaches and simple ingredients. It's a great summertime pie.

Several years ago, before I retired, a co-worker shared this recipe with me. We were talking recipes at work. When I left work that day I went straight to the grocery store and purchased the ingredients, went home, made this pie and it's been a favorite since that day!


(29-oz) cans of sliced peaches, drained
1/2 stick
(1/4 cup) butter
1/2 tsp
1/2 tsp
1/2 c
pillsbury quick pie crust, place one pie crust in bottom of pie plate, save other for top.
cinnamon and sugar to sprinkle on top of crust

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Combine drained peaches, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar in a medium size pan, bring to a soft boil, reduce heat, simmer 10 minutes.
Pour hot pie mixture into 1st pie crust. Place 2nd pie crust on top. Pinch edge together. Pierce with fork. Brush melted butter on top of crust and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.
Bake 30 to 45 minutes in preheated oven. Crust should be lighty browned. If top/edges is browning to much, remove pie from over and cover edges of crust with foil.

NOTE: Mixture is pretty much cooked before you pour in pie crust. You are cooking the pie dough/crust to a nice golden brown.

I don't find this pie to be runny at all but you could add a thickener if desired like a tablespoonful of flour, potato starch or other thickener.

What an awful recipe! Watery, flavorless and poor measuring in this recipe. Save your ingredients. ..

Joann, thank you for the catch. Bake in preheated oven 375 degrees. I've submitted a change to add this to the recipe.

I appreciate you taking the time to rate this pie, however, would you mind expanding on your thoughts. I know I left the temp off the instructions. Is there other reasons you would rate so low. I can only improve a recipe if I get imput from those that have tried it. Your imput is important! Thanks

Barbara Wilenius,
I made this pie just as stated in the recipe. I did NOT use any thickening agent in the filling and I did NOT prebake the bottom crust. All turned out wonderful for me.

Michelle Ford,
I baked mine in a preheated 375* oven and it worked out beautifully for me. My oven runs a little hot; but it was just fine. 11/04/13
