Cherry-Peach Pie Recipe

Cherry-Peach Pie RecipeI love the fruity combination of cherries mixed with peaches and often mix the two when I make homemade ice cream and fruit smoothies. With that said, I’ve never mixed the two when it comes to baking a pie and I think it’s a fabulous idea! Cherries are one of my husband’s favorite fruits and I absolutely adore peaches!

In The Raw has a brand new summer pie recipe that is sure to impress your family and friends. Made with Sugar In The Raw and this particular recipe can be made in a classic pie dish or in a cast-iron skillet and baked! Super cool. It will make approximately 10 servings.

Cherry-Peach Pie Recipe

Pie crust ingredients:

2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons Sugar in the Raw®
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup cold butter (2 sticks), cut into cubes
½ cup ice water

Filling ingredients:

5 large fresh peaches (about 2 ½ pounds)
2 cups fresh cherries, pitted and halved
1 cup Sugar in the Raw® plus 2 tablespoons, divided
3 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons lemon juice
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 egg, beaten with 2 teaspoons cool water

1. To the bowl of a food processor or a large mixing bowl, add flour, sugar, and salt. Pulse a few times or whisk to combine. Add butter and pulse until dough is crumbly and butter is in pea-sized pieces; or use a pastry blender or two knives to cut butter into flour. Add half the ice water and pulse or stir to combine. Add remaining water a little at a time until dough just comes together in a shaggy ball. Remove dough to a work surface and knead very lightly just until dough forms a smooth ball. Divide in half, flatten into discs, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill at least 1 hour or overnight.

2. Have ready a 9 or 10” pie dish or cast iron skillet. Lightly flour a work surface and place half of chilled dough on it. Roll out dough, applying even pressure with a rolling pin, into a circle 2 inches larger than the pie dish. If dough cracks, let it warm up for a few minutes before continuing. Patch any holes or large cracks with excess dough. Loosely roll dough around rolling pin and transfer to pie dish. Trim edges of dough to have a ¾” overhang. Poke dough all over with a fork, and chill 30 minutes. Place second dough round on work surface and roll out as above. Cut dough into ¾” strips. Place half the dough strips 1-2” apart on a lightly floured cookie sheet, then weave remaining dough strips through them in a basket-weave pattern. Chill lattice 30 minutes.

3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and prepare an ice water bath. With a paring knife, score the bottom of each peach with an X. With a slotted spoon, carefully lower peaches into water and blanch 2-3 minutes. Remove to ice water bath to cool. Peel skins off peaches with a paring knife and cut into ½” slices.

4. Preheat oven to 400?F.

5. In a large mixing bowl, combine peaches, cherries, 1 cup sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice and cinnamon. Pour into chilled pie shell. Slide lattice crust off cookie sheet on top of filled pie shell. If lattice and crust are very cold and brittle, let warm up for a few minutes. Fold overhanging dough of bottom crust over edges of lattice. Crimp edges or press with the tines of a fork.

6. Brush lattice with egg wash and sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons sugar.

7. Bake 30 minutes, then reduce oven temperature to 350?F and bake 30-40 minutes more, or until browned and bubbly. Remove to a rack and cool 1 hour.

    Looking good i love cherry pie love to try this recipe
    maybe this holiday

  2. Oh just looking at this reminds me of lovely summer days. Fruit pies are my favorites to make although I am not so good doing crust so tend to make a crisp or cobbler. I imagine this would be a delicious fruit combination and it looks so festive.

  3. Well, I picked up a fun trick from this recipe–weaving the lattice top, then setting it aside and placing it in one piece atop the pie filling. So much simpler than trying to make the lattice on the pie. The lattice in the picture is so pretty–it looks like braided strips. Wish I had a slice of that pie right now!

    I’ve never thought of mixing cherries and peaches, but it does sound pretty good. I know I love both!

  5. This looks like a delicious cherry pie! So fresh! This would make a great dessert on the dessert table at Thanksgiving or Christmas!

  6. My mom baked cherry pies but never peach. We had cut peaches for dessert though. I never thought to put them together and bet they would be great just as fresh fruit together. I’m not much of a pie person but have made them for others at the holidays. This would be a pretty one to make then.

  7. I’ll have to save this for next summer when fresh peaches come back. Looks like a winning combination.

  9. How beautiful. I had never thought of this combination, but now it seems obvious, and I love your braided crust strips.
