Here in Texas, peach season is in full swing.  The peaches are lovely in the grocery stores, but for our peaches, we like to get them at a local peach orchard in a little town close to us.  

They have several varieties, but our favorite is Alberta's, they are not ready yet, so we get another variety.  They are sweet, juicy, and the best part, they are freestone.


You may be asking?  What are freestone peaches?  They are a type of variety of peach that when you cut into them, the flesh will easily release from the pit.  It doesn't change the taste of the peach at all.  It just makes it easier to eat and lends a prettier sliced peach.

When I was growing up, and we were near a peach tree, we like to pull the peach off the tree and pull the peach apart at the stem and eat them without peeling them.  Such a summer treat.

WHAT YOU NEED TO MAKE FRESH VANILLA PEACH SLAB PIE

  • Rimmed baking sheet pan
  • Flour
  • Sugar
  • Butter
  • Shortening
  • 12 medium peaches
  • Vanilla
  • Brown sugar
  • Cornstarch
  • Milk
  • Egg

HOW TO MAKE FRESH VANILLA PEACH SLAB PIE

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. 

  • Peel and slice peaches in a colander that sits inside of a pie dish to capture the excess juices.

  • In a large bowl, place sliced peach, brown sugar, cornstarch, and vanilla bean paste. Fold ingredients all together being sure not to mash the peaches; set aside.

  •  Place the flour, sugar, and salt in the bowl of a food processor fitted with a steel blade and pulse a few times to mix.

  • Add the butter and shortening. Pulse 8 to 12 times, until the butter is the size of peas.

  • With the machine running, pour the ice water down the feed tube and pulse the machine until the dough begins to form a ball.

  • Cut the dough in 1/3 and 2/3 portions. Roll 2/3 portion on a well-floured board into a rectangle to fit rimmed baking sheet pan, rolling from the center to the edge, turning and lightly flouring underneath the dough to make sure it doesn't stick to the board. Roll dough into a 20"x16" rectangle. Fold the dough in half, place in a rimmed baking sheet pan, and unfold to fit the pan. Slightly beat egg white from separated egg (reserve egg yolk). Brush bottom of the pie dough with egg white covering all the inside pie dough. Reserve the remaining egg white.

  • Pour peach mixture into the prepared rimmed baking sheet pan with pie dough. 

  • Roll the 1/3 portion on a well-floured board into a rectangle, rolling from the center to the edge, turning and flouring the dough to make sure it doesn't stick to the board. Roll dough into a 15" x18" rectangle.  Cut four  1" strips 19" long and seven 1" strips 16" long.

  • Arrange the strips of cut pie dough in a lattice style across the top of the peaches. Crimp the edges well. Add the separated egg yolk to the remaining egg white. Beat and brush mixture on top of the lattice dough. Sprinkle with coarse sugar.

  • Place prepared slab pie in the freezer for 15-30 minutes. Remove from the freezer and place prepared slab pie in the oven and bake for 20 minutes.

  • Turn oven down to 375 degrees F. Check the baking of the slab pie for brownness every 20 minutes.  If the pie begins to get too brown cover the slab pie with a foil tent or shield. Bake for a least an hour. The crust will be golden, and filling will be bubbly.

  1. Looks simply delicious. How wonderful to use a sheet pan. My grandparents had a peach tree in their backyard. I want to make this. Thanks so much for sharing at “Love Your Creativity.”
