A delicious and creamy \Peaches and Cream Pie\, filled with fresh peaches and cooked in a creamy, sour cream sauce. Topped with a crumble topping.
I have been making this peach pie for a very long time. It’s a must-make when it’s fresh peach season! What makes this peach special is the creamy sauce that bakes with the peaches, making a distinct “peaches and cream” pie experience.
Of course, the crumble topping is a nice touch, as well as being a little different. It brings a bit of peach crisp to this pie.
It probably goes without saying, but this pie is best enjoyed during fresh peach season. Be sure to use perfectly ripe peaches, that are still a little firm, for best results.
You can use either your favourite pie crust recipe or a store bought pie crust for this one. You’ll want to use a deep dish one, in either case.
Get the Recipe: Peaches and Cream Pie
- 1 deep dish pie crust, homemade or store-bought
- 5 cups fresh peaches, about 5-6 large, peeled and thickly sliced
- 2/3 cup white sugar
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cup sour cream
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2/3 cup white sugar
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- Pinch salt
- 1/4 cup melted butter
- Preheat oven to 425° F.
- In a large bowl, toss the peaches with the filling white sugar and flour. Stir in the sour cream. Spoon filling into unbaked pie shell, then place pie shell on a baking sheet.
- In a medium bowl, stir together the topping ingredients (except butter). Stir in melted butter with a fork until you have evenly moistened crumbs, with just a few larger pieces. Scatter topping over pie filling.
- Bake in 425oven for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350and bake a further 35 minutes, or until set and golden. (*Note - check the pie after 25-30 minutes in to the 350bake time and cover loosely with aluminum foil if topping is golden enough at that point.) Allow to cool to room temperature. You can refrigerate and serve cooled as well.

Have you ever made and froze before cooking? I make pies and freeze them for later use as we have a great tree. I made this yesterday and thought it might be the best peach pie ever! I would love to freeze some but not sure how the sour cream holds up once baked at a later time.
Hi Joanne and so glad you enjoyed it :) I haven’t frozen this pie before baking. I suffer from a chronic shortage of freezer space, so I don’t freeze as much as I should or could. I share your concern about the sour cream, which typically doesn’t hold up well after being frozen. Sometimes when mixed with other things, it doesn’t seem to suffer as much, but I can’t say for sure that it would work in this case. Sorry, I wish I could give you more guidance. Maybe someone else has tried it and will weigh in.
absolutely love peaches in summer. Love this recipe. I can’t wait they arrive here, we are in Winter but september begin spring!
Peach season is one of my favourites and this pie is a perfect way to enjoy them! Do enjoy when your season rolls around :)
Peaches are definitely having their moment right now and I love your recipes. Dying to try this!
Thanks Cindy! It’s my favourite peach pie, for sure :)
This pie is just lovely Jennifer!
I can see myself digging right into it with my trusty fork….just me, again, the sharing problem! LOL!
Peaches are one of the nicest fruits to bake with and I’m not counting just plain eating them as is. :-)
For some reason I have never had a fail dessert of any kind when I’ve used peaches.
You should have seen some of my so-called desserts. :-(
I am also keeping my fingers crossed with this dessert…..hopefully I didn’t just jinx myself.
Have a nice day!
Thanks so much, Dalila. I am not a great pie baker, but really wanted to eat this one ;) Fingers crossed for you, but honestly, anything with cooked peaches just can’t help turn out delicious, I think.
i have been a bit peach obsessed this summer and this creamy peach filling has me swooning. love the addition of sour cream and that crumb topping? yes, yes and more yes!
Thanks so much, Cathy :) This is a great way to highlight great peaches, for sure!
I’ve never had an Ontario peach, but we do have a peach farm right down the road and I have been buying basket upon basket of those beauties! Peaches and cream has to be one of my favorite combinations EVER, so I am freaking over this pie, Jennifer!!!! This looks unbelievably delicious!! I am SOOO doing this! Cheers, girlfriend!
Thanks Cheyanne. I’m sure any great peach would be wonderful in this pie. I think you’ll love the creamy twist on this one :)
Absolutely fantastic pie Jennifer! I am drooling over those lovely peaches and that crumble top looks like perfection. You know I love a good pie and this is a must make for me :)
Thanks Tricia. I’ll take that as high praise from you :) Pies have never been my strong point (baking wise), but I’m determined to conquer them, because I do love to eat them!
I made this for last nights Saturday supper. It turned out great and was delicious. This is something I will definitely make again.
So glad you enjoyed it, Becky :) We’ve been enjoying it from the freezer (I cut it in to slices and froze them on a baking sheet). It freezes amazingly well!
Such a gorgeous pie, I’m in love with your peaches and cream filling!
This looks sooooo good, I am loving peaches right now and this pie is perfection!
Thanks so much, Sara :)

Thanks Mary Ann. I love peach season :)
Wow, Wow, Wow, Jennifer! This is such a beautiful pie! I love peaches and the season is so short here. I’m going to share this with the farms this afternoon so everyone can get busy making it!
Enjoy your weekend :)
Thanks Robyn and even better if someone bakes it for you, for sure :)
I can’t wait to try this!! Yum!
Thanks Katrina :)
Are you peeling the peaches?
Hi Andrea and yes, they should be peeled.
Oh wow, that creamy peach filling is to die for! I’m gorging on peaches right now, and this pie is next on my to-do list :)
Thanks Sue. It’s one of my favourites :)
