This is a recipe for a fresh peach blueberry pie with a homemade butter pie crust (Pate Brisee). Fresh fruit, a little bit of spice and you’ve got a beautiful fresh peach pie. A delicious peach recipe to use up those Summer Palisade peaches.
Every year I order a big box of absolutely beautiful Colorado Western Slope Peaches from Highlands Ranch Rotary. They arrived last week, and my first project was this beautiful fresh peach blueberry pie.
About Palisade Peaches
Palisade Peaches are famously grown on our Western slope, in and around the town of Palisade. Colorado peaches are known for being extra juicy and extra sweet, thanks to the long sunny hot days and cool Colorado Summer nights. That equals perfect conditions for fruity sugars to develop. To learn more about what makes a Colorado Peach so special, check out this article about Colorado Western Slope Peaches.
But first, let’s talk pie pans. As I’ve mentioned in past posts, I’m obsessed with all the tart pans I’ve collected since attending Culinary School. Every pie we made was baked in a tart pan rather than a conventional pie pan. I adore the visual aspect of the end result. A thinner crust version than that of a traditional pie, slightly fancier to the eye…it truly can be a show stopper.
Made with the same buttery flaky crust as for a pie pan, whether filled with delicate pastry cream or fresh fruit, my heart skips a beat when I pull it from the oven. Especially when it’s topped with a beautiful lattice crust.
And of course you can use your pie pan for this recipe. Which ever you use, it should be a 9″ pan.
This peach blueberry pie recipe is a little more complicated than just slicing fresh peaches and placing them on the pie dough. A sweet slurry is cooked stovetop, where fruit juice and corn starch makes a thicker pie filling.
One that’s not too gloppy and one that’s just thick enough to give that crust a fighting chance to become tender, flaky and not soggy. A technique and recipe I learned at Culinary School.
An Easy Way To Peel Peaches:
Peel the peaches using this easy method.
- Boil water in a tall sauce pan. Drop the peaches into the boiling water and pull them out with a large slotted spoon thirty seconds later.
- Place them in a water bath. In just a few minutes the skin with practically slide off those sweet peaches.
So with peach season in full swing, grab a few peaches and please make a peach pie. You know everyone wants a slice. There’s nothing more beautiful than a slice of fresh peach pie dotted with beautiful purple-blue blueberries, it’s a sight to behold.
And please make your own pie crust. You can take a look a my recipe for Pate Brise, the traditional French Butter Pie Crust Recipe, Step By Step. It’s easier than you think.
