Make your own crust using LARD, yes it's still sold.



Read a lot of recipes, I found the recipe that is from Americas's Test Kitchens the best, you actually cook the peaches first then drain and add just some of the juice mixed with pectin.


That was a perfect peach pie.

Chef John's Peach Pie

"Above and beyond beautiful, this lattice design is also very practical. When you're making pie with something like peaches, the relatively open top allows for lots of moisture to evaporate, which helps prevent the dreaded 'watery-pie syndrome.' That's also the reason we boil the excess juices down to a syrup."
This recipes was delicious. I found it on

Re: Want to make a great peach pie...

This is my favorite peach pie recipe passed down from my mom:


2 1/2 Tablespoons tapioca

3/4 cup sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

4 cups sliced peaches

1 Tablespoon lemon juice


Mix all of above and let stand 5 minutes. Spoon into unbaked pie shell. Sprinkle with topping:


1/3 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 

2 1/2 Tablespoons butter


(mix topping ingredients with fork until crumbly before sprinkling on top of pie filling)


Bake for 45-50 minutes at 425 degrees.
