Nectarine Pie

September 19, 2019Teresa

This Nectarine Pie is absolutely fantastic! I’ve never cooked with nectarines before but I’m sure glad I tried this. I basically used my mom’s fruit pie recipe with a few changes. This pie has cinnamon and nutmeg. The only thing I didn’t do was make a homemade pie crust. 🙁

I usually make my own crust when I’m making pies. However, I was making so many recipes in such a short period of time, so I couldn’t. The pie still turned out wonderfully in my opinion.

I received a shipment of nectarines and peaches from the Washington State Fruit Commission last week. They asked me to blog about my experiences with their fruit. (I did cherries earlier in the season).

To be totally honest, nectarines have never been on my radar for baking before. But I made two desserts with them. They were my favorite recipes of the bunch! I loved how they turned out. I really try to watch how much sweets I eat. But I allowed myself to indulge this time. Nectarine Pie was awesome. Southern Nectarine Cobbler was also spectacular.

It sure made a believer out of me. I will not just eat nectarines raw, I’ll start baking with them! If you enjoy nectarines, you’ve just gotta make this scrumptious Nectarine Pie. Your family will devour this amazing dessert. So just in case, make two of ’em. 🙂

Nectarine Pie is absolutely awesome. This delicious pie uses fresh nectarines. It's one of the tastiest, most drool worthy desserts ever! Every bite will have your mouth watering. If you want comfort food, this is terrific as a summer or early fall dessert when fresh peaches are in season.

Love this #recipe. #southern #NectarinePie #cinnamon #NectarineDessert #Canbassador #WashingtonStateFruitCommission #WashingtonStoneFruitGrowers
Instructions
  1. Peel and slice nectarines.
  2. Add sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  3. Stir to combine.
  4. This will prevent the nectarines from discoloration and allow syrup to form.
  5. Set aside.
  6. Roll out pie crust and place in 10-inch deep dish pie plate.
  7. Place small dabs of the butter in the unbaked pie shell.
  8. Roll out remaining crust have ready to place on top.
  9. Once the top crust is ready, add the nectarine filling to the unbaked pie shell.
  10. Place top crust over top of the nectarine filling in the pie shell.
  11. Cut slits in top crust to allow steam to escape while baking.
  12. Bake at 325° about 1 ½ to 2 hours or until juices have thickened and bubbled up to the top of the pie.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: If you place the fruit filling in the crust and allow it to remain very long without getting the pie into the oven, it will cause a soggy crust.

NOTE: While cooking fruit pies at lower temperatures take a good bit longer, the end result is a lot better. The fruit cooks all the way through; the pie is not soupy but thickened properly; and the crust doesn’t tend to become too brown like it does with higher temperatures.

NOTE: If the juices are bubbling up to the top of the pie but they are still thin, the pie is not cooked! Continue cooking until juices are thick.

NOTE: If pie crust starts to turn brown, tent pie with foil. You may also want to place a cookie sheet under your pies to catch drips.

Nectarines taste very similarly to peaches but have a very thin skin like plums.

This is such a delicious pie. I bake my pies slowly so the juices have a chance to thicken properly. There’s nothing worse than cutting into a pie that’s runny.
