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 spectacular.
I think this recipe tastes better than Peach Pie–and that’s saying something!
Nectarine Pie is a terrific way to use up a bumper crop of nectarines.
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Peel and slice nectarines. Place in a large mixing bowl.
Add sugar, UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Stir ingredients to combine. Set aside.
Place crust in pie plate.
Dot with butter.
Add nectarine filling.
Add top crust and flute edges.
Cut slits in the top crust with a knife to allow steam to escape.
Bake at 325 degrees for about two hours or until the juices have thickened.
Allow pie to cool completely before cutting into eighths.
Serve plain or with whipped topping or ice cream.
Nectarine Pie is some of the best comfort food you’ll ever eat.
Here’s the recipe.
(My own concoction)
Every bite of Nectarine Pie is so mouthwatering.
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.
