The Best Fresh Peach Pie

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

My mom makes the best homemade fresh peach pie! Really, I have tasted other versions of pie and my moms is the best fresh peach pie I have ever had! She says that she thinks what makes it so good is it includes orange juice in the recipe.  

She always made this pie for my Dad’s birthday! The best peach pie begins by whisking some cornstarch and sugar together in a sauce pan. Add orange juice, water, and lemon juice to the mixture. Then whisk it together and bring to a boil until thick. You want the sauce to the thickness of a pudding. Allow to cool to room temperature.

Place fresh sliced peaches in a bowl and fold in enough of the cooled sauce to coat the peaches. You may not need all of the sauce. Pour the filling into prepared pie crust and chill for at least 2 hours. This is best if eaten it the same day.

If you know me, I love whipped cream.  I use it whenever I can.  In my opinion, you can’t have a slice of the best fresh peach pie without a generous dollop of sweetened whipped cream.  For the picture, I piped on the whipping cream to make it look pretty.
