Buttermilk Peach Pie With Canned Peaches

No one will be able to resist this easy old-fashioned buttermilk peach pie with canned peaches. It includes a custard-like peach pie filling with flaky crust to make one of my favorite desserts.

If you’re anything like me, the title alone drew you to this post. Anything with buttermilk gets five stars in my book. So let me just tell you right now that if you like buttermilk, pies, and peaches, this one won’t disappoint. This is an old-fashioned buttermilk pie with juicy bites of peaches throughout and a hint of cinnamon in every bite.

It’s as good hot as it is cold and as good for dessert as it is for breakfast. Oooh did I say that? Pie for breakfast? Oh, I meant….mid-morning snack with your coffee, as long as you got up at 4:00 AM and skipped breakfast just to have this “snack” at 7:00 Am. ~winks and grins~  It has buttermilk (calcium!), eggs (protein!), and peaches (fruit!). Toss in the starches in the crust and all ya gotta do is throw a green bean on the side and you’ve practically eaten the food pyramid!

Another thing I love about this buttermilk peach pie recipe is just how easy it is to make. All we do is place the canned peaches in an unbaked pie crust, mix the remaining ingredients together, pour this over the peaches, and bake! It takes less than 10 minutes to prep and 40 minutes to bake.

Your easy peach pie will be ready in no time… and it will probably disappear from your kitchen in no time as well! I mean, I can’t be the only one who loves the combination of custard pie filling, sweet peach slices, and flaky pie crust.

  • Store leftover canned peach pie loosely covered in plastic wrap or foil or in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. As mentioned, you can eat it cold or quickly reheat it in the microwave, oven, or air fryer if you prefer it warm.
  • You can also store leftover pie in the freezer for up to 6 months. Just make sure the slices are double wrapped to avoid freezer burn. Thaw slices in the fridge or at room temperature before reheating as above.

Recipe Notes

  • For a dairy-free peach pie, you’ll need to use vegan butter or coconut oil and substitute the buttermilk for your favorite non-dairy milk (almond milk always works well).
  • For a different flavor, substitute the vanilla extract for almond extract.
  • Speaking of added flavor, you can also add 1/8 teaspoon of ground nutmeg.
  • To balance out the sweetness of the sugar and peaches, you can add 2 teaspoons of fresh or bottled lemon juice.

Recipe FAQs

Can I make buttermilk peach pie with fresh peaches or frozen peaches?

I love to make my buttermilk peach pie with canned peaches because it’s easy and they’re sweeter. But you can definitely make a peach pie with fresh or frozen peaches instead. If you’re using frozen peaches, just make sure they’re thawed and patted dry before adding to pie crust. If you’re using fresh peaches, you’ll need about 5 to 6 peeled and sliced peaches.

Can I use a homemade pie crust?

You definitely can! Here’s my recipe for an easy homemade pie crust. Either way, you don’t need to blind bake either pie crust.

How do you serve buttermilk peach pie?

I love serving my pie for dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.

Since i am new to this i dont always read all of your writing i often skip to the recipe part. There was no mention of draining the peaches before putting them into the pieshell butbupon further reading it did mention it in your blog section. My fault for not reading it first as it was a dialysis day and I was a bit loopy!
