Love fresh peach pie, but don’t have the time or inclination to bake? Creamy No-Bake Fresh Peach Pie is the perfect showcase to seasonal fresh peaches, and it’s quick and easy. This pie requires absolutely no cooking or baking, so the kitchen stays cool. The filling is very light and not-too-sweet, which complements the luscious flavor of the fresh peaches.
The crust is simply a store-bought graham cracker crust; the filling, a mixture of peach gelatin, cream cheese, whipped cream, and fresh peaches. Nothing could be easier, but this pie is pretty enough for company and tasty enough for everyone.
One word of caution: don’t try to substitute frozen whipped topping for the whipped cream. Not only is it too sweet, it changes the flavor and ruins the texture of the pie. It takes only a minute or two to whip heavy cream, and there is no comparison in taste, not to mention the fact that most heavy cream contains little or no preservatives or additives as opposed to the frozen whipped topping that contains nothing fit for human consumption.
If fresh peach taste is what you’re looking for, this is the pie to make. Creamy No-Bake Fresh Peach Pie can be made a day ahead, so it’s perfect for entertaining.
