The ingredients needed to make an easy peach pie with canned peaches and refrigerated dough.

Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Pie Crust – Take a shortcut and use store-bought, refrigerated pie crust for this recipe. They typically come in a double crust box, and you’ll need both of them for peach pie. You can also use a homemade pie crust if you like.
  • Canned Peaches – Look for cans of peaches in light syrup, rather than heavy syrup. The ones in heavy syrup can be too sweet, and we’ll be draining away the syrup anyways. You can also use sliced fresh ripe peaches in this easy recipe.
  • Lemon Juice – A bit of acidity helps to balance the sweetness of the peaches and adds a fresh, bright flavor.
  • Granulated Sugar – You don’t need much, but to get a perfectly sweet, gooey peach pie filling, you will need some sugar.
  • Flour – Flour will help to absorb liquid from the peaches while they bake.
  • Cinnamon – This spice goes perfectly with peaches.
  • Butter – This is an amazing trick to make pie filling with canned fruit taste amazing. Add dots of butter to the filling before you cover it with the top crust!
  • Egg Wash – To make an egg wash for the top of the pie, whisk one egg with just a splash of water. This makes the top of the pie perfectly golden brown.

Expert Recipe Tips

  • Drain the peaches well – Canned peaches that are too wet will give you a soggy, runny pie.
  • Make clean-up easy – Place your pie pan on a sheet tray lined with foil. This way, if any of the filling bubbles out, you won’t need to scrub it off of the bottom of your oven.
  • Let it cool – Give the peach pie at least two hours to cool before trying to slice and serve it. This will help the filling to set.

Storage Instructions

Leftover peach pie can be stored in the fridge, wrapped well with plastic wrap, for up to 2 days. Reheat slices gently in the microwave if you like.

Peach Pie with Ice Cream

You can top your pie with whipped cream, but it will be so much better with a scoop of ice cream! The classic pairing would be vanilla bean ice cream, but you can also try cinnamon ice cream or peach ice cream for an extra special treat.

Delicious Peach Pie with Canned Peaches - an easy recipe that you can make any time of the year with store bought crust and sliced peaches.


  • 2 store-bought refrigerated pie crusts
  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) sliced canned peaches in light syrup, well drained
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon butter, finely diced
  • 1 egg, beaten with a splash of water to create an egg wash


  1. Preheat your oven to 350F and grease a 9” pie pan with nonstick cooking spray. Add one of the pie crusts to the pan making sure to place it snug around the bottom and sides. Poke the bottom a few times with a fork. raw pie dough in a pie pan

  5. Lay the second pie crust over the peaches and trim any excess around the edges. Pinch or crimp the edges to seal in the filling and then use a sharp knife to cut four (1-inch long) vents in the top crust. uncooked peach pie with canned peaches in a pie pan
  6. Brush the top crust with the egg wash and and bake for 50-55 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is hot and bubbly. I like to place the pie on a sheet pan to catch any accidental drips, but that is optional! baked peach pie with canned peaches in a pie pan
