Ingredients to plan for this rustic peach pie
For this pie, I chose to beautiful seasonal peaches. When choosing them, take them ripe for their fragrance but not too soft because they must hold together once sliced.
As for the vanilla, I used two different ones: liquid vanilla extract and powdered vanilla (from the vanilla bean). It's practical, you can easily find it in stores now. Be aware that if you don't have vanilla powder, you can use a vanilla bean or add more vanilla extract.
To prepare the pie crust, that simple ingredients, which you certainly have at home: flour, brown sugar, unsalted butter, ground almonds, egg and salt.
This recipe is simple and inexpensive, given the fact that we use seasonal fruits.
How to make a rustic peach pie
We start by preparing the pie crust, we can even do it in advance, the day before for example. If this is the case, it should be brought back to room temperature a little when spreading it out to make it easier.
To make the dough, just beat the butter and the brown sugar. We add the other ingredients, the flour last. This dough requires refrigeration time to have an ideal texture (1 hour).
During the cooling time of the dough, you can make the garnish. To do this, we slice the peaches without peeling them and then add them to a container containing brown sugar, cornstarch, lemon, vanilla, a touch of cinnamon and salt.
The peaches are left to macerate for 45 minutes: this allows the liquid contained in the fruit to settle in the bottom of the container, and not to soak the dough afterwards.
Then, we spread the dough in a wide circle, we garnished with peaches, leaving a space on the edge for the fold. To garnish: either you put them in "bulk" or you place them rose window like me. Your rustic peach pie is ready!
After having coated with egg yolk and sprinkled with brown sugar, all you have to do is put in the oven.
How to taste this peach pie?
This pie can be eaten lukewarm out of the oven or even cold according to your tastes. I advise you to add a nice scoop of vanilla ice cream, it's so delicious!
If you don't like ice cream, know that even tasted “plain” this rustic peach pie is still very good.
