Fresh Peach Pie – No-Bake Recipe

Our Glazed Fresh Peach Pie could possibly be the easiest peach pie recipe you’ll ever find. This pie layers luscious fresh peaches under a delicious glaze. It’s perfect for those lazy days of summer or a warm fall evening.

When it comes to fresh peaches, we just can’t get enough of them whether it’s putting them under a buttery brown sugar topping like in our Peach Crisp, loading them into our Upside-Down Peach Cake, or making a Fresh Peach Sauce perfect for a Bellini or Yogurt Parfait.

It’s no lie that we love an easy peach dessert. We’re obsessed with ripe juicy peaches. Making this Fresh Peach Pie recipe is a perfectly easy and delicious way to use fresh peaches without having to turn on the oven.

Wait a minute! That sure looks like a baked pie right? We wanted a homemade buttery pie crust under our homemade peach pie so yep we blind-baked a crust. You can use a store-bought graham cracker crust for this pie for a truly no-bake Fresh Peach Pie or you can buy a 9-inch pie shell and bake it. Now, let’s show you how we did it.

How to make a peach pie

Peach Pie Ingredients

Ingredients used to make peach pie including peaches, almond extract, butter, cornstarch, lemon, and sugar.
  • Peaches – fresh and ripe
  • Sugar – white granulated sugar
  • Lemon – we used a little in our fresh peaches and in our glaze. It brightens up the peach flavor and helps them keep that beautiful color.
  • Cornstarch – used as a thickening agent in our glaze
  • Butter – we use the real stuff
  • Almond extract – you could also use vanilla but we loved the almond-peach combination
  • Water – tap water or whatever you drink is fine.

We started by preparing our peaches. We skinned them, removed the pit, and then sliced them. You’ll want to puree enough of your peaches to get one cup. Put the rest of the sliced peaches in a bowl and drizzle them with some of the lemon juice.

The easiest way to skin a peach

  1. Wash and score the peach skin with the sharp tip of a knife 4 to 6 times down the length of the peach.
  2. Add the peaches to boiling water and keep them submerged or turn them for 30 seconds.
    1. I use a spyder strainer for holding the peaches down, turning them, and removing them from the hot water.
  3. Submerge the peaches in an ice bath for 10 seconds.
  4. Slide the skin from them immediately.

How to make peach pie glaze

In a medium-sized saucepan add the peach puree, sugar, and lemon. Combine 1 tsp of fresh lemon juice with the cornstarch and whisk it into the glaze mixture. Whisk constantly until thick. Add the butter and almond extract. Set aside to cool slightly.

Assembling your fresh peach pie

  1. Put the fresh peach slice mixture into the pie shell.
  2. Spoon or pour the glaze over the fresh peaches. Make sure you completely cover the sliced peaches.
  3. Chill for 4 to 6 hours or overnight.

For complete step-by-step instructions, see the recipe card.

Tips for the perfect Glazed Peach Pie

  • Don’t over-fill the pie shell with fresh peach slices. We filled ours between 2/3 and 3/4 full using a 9″ pie place.
  • Use a whisk to stir the glaze. If the cornstarch starts getting lumpy, whisk it thoroughly until it dissolves completely.
  • Be sure to cover all of the peaches with the glaze. We make sure that all of our peach slices were laying on their sides so we didn’t have any peaches sticking up through the glaze.
  • Chill this pie completely before you cut it.

Easy peach pie variations

We love the flavor of almonds with peaches. Our homemade almond shell that we used with our Raspberry Linzer Torte would be amazing!

Frequently asked questions

How many peaches do I need for this homemade peach pie

We used 6 medium-sized peaches. We needed enough fresh peaches to make 1 cup of pureed peaches and enough sliced peaches to fill our 9-inch pie shell ⅔ thirds full.

Can you use canned or frozen peaches?

We do not recommend using canned or frozen peaches in this recipe. When you make a peach pie with cooked filling, the juices cook off. Since we don’t cook our filling, we don’t want to use canned or frozen peaches that tend to contain more liquid which would make our crust soggy.

How do you store this No-Bake Peach Pie?

We store this pie in the refrigerator and it’s best eaten within 2 to 3 days. We don’t recommend that this pie be stored at room temperature or that it be frozen. Freezing this pie could have an effect on the texture of the glaze.

Serving suggestions

This pie is perfectly delicious fresh out of the refrigerator. We enjoyed dressing it up with a little fresh whipped cream. You could also share it with a dollop of vanilla ice cream.

Note: This pie is intended to be served cold and can’t be heated prior to serving.

If you like this recipe, we would appreciate your comment and a 5-star ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ review!

Kitchen tools you may need

  • Pie Plate – This pie plate are so pretty, and they make fluting a pie crust a no-brainer.
  • Whisk – I love my whisks and have them in several sizes, shapes, and colors. I have a gadget obsession I guess and love these!
  • Pie Server – The first piece of pie is the hardest to get out right? I find that this server does a great job getting every slice of pie out of the pie plate. It’s great for pizza or quiche too.
