Fresh Peach Custard Cream Pie

Fresh Peach Custard Cream Pie

It’s September and prime peach season in Utah! Some peaches are so divinely delicious they are too good to cook. That’s why I invented this recipe. I wanted to highlight the pure goodness of a peach without baking it. The best part? It’s a no bake pie. Enjoy the last bit of summer with this sweet as a peach dessert.

Ingredients:
4-5 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
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:
6 Tbs of sugar (or optional honey)
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
Beat egg whites and 3 Tbs sugar (or honey) until stiff. Set aside.
Mix 3 Tbs sugar (or honey), flour, and salt in a large sauce pan until combine.
Turn on heat to medium and add milk. Whisk for about 5-8 minutes on medium until thick. Add egg yolks and continue to whisk for about 5 minutes.
Add vanilla and butter and stir until combined. Take off of heat. Fold in egg whites into hot mixture.
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). Before serving add mounds of freshly whipped cream and a few slices of fresh peaches for decoration.
Enjoy!!
