Description

Who doesn’t love a ripe, juicy, sweet as candy peach? It’s a no bake pie. Enjoy the taste of summer with this sweet as a peach dessert.


Ingredients

Scale

45 large peaches- peeled and sliced
1 pint of heavy whipping cream- whipped and sweetened to taste
1 recipe graham cracker crust
1 recipe custard

Graham Cracker Crust*:

1 1/2 cups finely ground graham cracker crumbs (I like to use Annie’s Organic Honey Graham brand)
1/3 cup white sugar (I do not add sugar to my crust at all but some like it sweeter)
6 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Custard:

6 Tbs of sugar (divided in two parts)
6 Tbs flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 Cups whole milk
2 egg yolks (save egg whites)
1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 Tbs butter


Instructions

Graham Cracker Crust*:

In a food processor, mix graham cracker crumbs, sugar (if using), melted butter, and cinnamon until well blended. Press mixture into an 8 or 9 inch pie plate.
*double recipe if you like thicker crust
Set aside.

Custard:

  1. Beat egg whites and 3 Tbs sugar until stiff. Set aside.
    Mix 3 Tbs sugar, flour, and salt in a large sauce pan until combine.
    Turn on heat to medium and add milk. Whisk for about 5 minutes on medium until thick. The time may vary slightly depending on stove temperature. Do not leave alone or it will burn.
  2. Remove from heat and then add the egg yokes whisking continuously (if you keep it on heat it could turn into scrambled eggs)
  3. Once egg yokes are fully incorporated into the mixture, place back on the heat continuing to whisk until it comes to a boil. Add vanilla and butter and stir until combined. Remove from the heat.
  4. Fold egg whites into hot mixture.
  5. Assembly: Fill prepared graham cracker crust with thick layer of fresh peaches. Pour custard over peaches. Cover with plastic wrap and let set in fridge for 2-4 hours (up to 24 hours in advance).

Notes

Before serving add mounds of freshly whipped cream and a few slices of fresh peaches for decoration.
