Easy Peach Pie Recipe
This easy peach pie recipe, for me, is inspired by two things, fresh peaches in season in the Summer and make a custard peach pie that’s no sweat as in easy! Of course, cooking with Frenchie. Frenchie, my dear girlfriend is just, so French. Very French. Born and raised in Brittany, she’s been in the United States for a while, but she has not lost any of her Frenchness!
I have learned so very much from her from her artistic tendencies and decorating to her incredible cooking. And, one of the big ideas that I’ve learned from Frenchie in cooking is that ‘less is more’. Simple and simplified is the best kind of cooking. Yes, if you start with wonderfully fresh high quality ingredients then cooking and baking are simple.
Custard Peach Pie
That’s how this custard peach pie came about. I wanted to use the star of the pie, peaches, and just kind of bring them together with a simple custard. I know that the more simple I can make cooking for you, the more likely you are to make a recipe. And, you’re going to definitely want to make this peaches and cream custard pie.
Custard Recipe EASY
Now creating a custard recipe is not a problem, but designing a custard recipe EASY is more of a challenge! It’s really hard to believe that in this peaches and cream custard pie there are only five ingredients. I’m thinking that because of this being one easy custard peach pie, you’re gonna make it. So t make this easy custard that bakes into the peaches all you need are two ingredients!
Peaches and Cream Custard Pie
When I pulled the peaches and cream custard pie out of the oven, I knew the custard was done, and as you can see there are little bubbles that migrated to the top. I do believe that’s the combination of the juices from the peaches with the custard. Actually, I wasn’t sure if this pie would cut into definable ‘slices’ and it really doesn’t. There’s just too much ooozeee tasty creaminess. But, what the heck, you can scoop it out into a bowl or on a plate with some vanilla bean ice cream, and you’ll be perfectly happy!
In the Fall, when those apples are in season, try making another of my most elementary desserts quick apple tart. Yes, this is why I call myself a ‘rogue baker’. Nothing I do would probably make it into a fancy bakery or patisserie, but I guarantee you’ll love eating it!
Now don’t thing that this is my only peach recipe. Oh, heavens sakes no! Check out more of my recipes, both sweet and savory, using peaches!
