This is optional when it comes to peaches. The skins will soften up quite a bit in the cooking process. So it is all about personal preference in terms of peeling or not.
What Kind of Peaches Are Used In Pie
Reach for a darker-skinned peach, they offer a bright-colored flesh. This variety of peach is a yellow peach and is perfect for using in the pie.
Pie and Cake Supply List
- Stand Mixer or Hand-held Mixer– This makes it SO much faster to whip the topping. Like I said above, it can be done without a mixer, but make sure you have a strong arm and patience. I have a KitchenAid Pro Mixer that I’ve had for 12+ years and love it!
- Round Cake Storage and Carrier– Having a pan with lid and carrier makes it easier for storage. No more having to deal with plastic wrap that gets messy and twisted up.
- 8-inch Parchment Rounds– No more dealing with cake sticking to the bottom of the pan!
- Cake Leveler– This tool is a must if you want to make layered cakes. It allows you to evenly remove the rounded part of the cake top and make perfectly level layers.
- Cake Server– A good cake server makes a world of difference. It makes it so much easier to lift the dessert lasagna out of the pan in nice and even slices.
- Cake Decorating Set– Making a pretty cake is reasonably easy when you use the tools in this decorating set. With a little practice, you will be decorating cakes like a pro in no time.
Variations to Peach Pie
- Raspberries | Add in ½ cup of raspberries for a fun twist to the flavor.
- Strawberries | Another fruit is strawberries to toss in. Just look for ripe berries.
- Topping | Add a crumble top with oats or opt for a designed top with pie crust.
You can really have fun changing things up a bit. I love this classic peach pie but feel free to experiment.
Fresh Peaches or Frozen
Either fresh or frozen peaches works in this pie recipe. Most of the time you will find that frozen peaches offer a nice sweetness to them just as fresh would. They are frozen in their prime.
So if you use frozen don’t thaw and just mix in frozen and pour into the pie pan and bake.
What Is The Difference Between Peach Pie and Peach Cobbler
The difference between the two is how they are made. A cobbler is made in a baking dish and a pie is made with pie crust and in a pie pan. Cobblers are topped with a pastry dough or crumble.
How Many Peaches Equals A Cup
Two medium peaches when pitted and peeled will equal around one cup. Just make sure if you reach for smaller peaches to add to it or you will come up short.
