Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9-inch pie dish with butter.
  2. Press one pie crust into the prepared pie dish.
  3. Mix sugar, flour, cornstarch, cinnamon, cardamom, and allspice together in a bowl. Slowly stir butter into the sugar mixture until fully incorporated.
  4. Toss peaches and rum together in a separate bowl; add sugar mixture to peaches. Gently toss to coat peaches. Pour peach mixture into pie crust. Top with remaining pie crust; seal the two crust edges together. Cut 4 to 5 slits in the top crust for ventilation. Brush with milk.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Lower heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C); bake until top is golden brown, about 30 more minutes. Turn off the oven and let the pie rest in the oven as it cools, at least 1 hour.

Yo Ho Ho and a pie full of YUM! Seriously, everything's better with rum and this pie is no exception! I made as directed, except adding in a few extra peaches, I used 10 large in all. The spices were right on and the rum added a great flavor. Definitely a keeper. Thanks for sharing, Chelipepper!

Though this is a good recipe, I have found that when it comes to peach pies epescially; that 1/2 a cup white sugar & 1/2 a cup of brown sugar are very vital to the taste of the pie. I ommitted the allspice and the cardamom. I also added a 1/4 more teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. nutmeg, 1 tsp. vanilla. Fresh peaches are a must. Some people don't like the taste of nutmeg, if you don't like it,sub with the cardamom, allspice or just omitt it. Hope this helps.

Yes, everything is better with rum. Even peach pie. Couldn't find any plain rum in the house, so I substituted some vanilla flavored rum, which went really well with the flavor of the peaches. I also substituted 1/3 cup of tapioca pudding for the 1/3 cup of flour. My great grandmother swore by tapioca to thicken pies and said you can substitute an equal amount in any recipe calling for flour. The filling thickened and the bottom crust did not get soggy. I will definitely make this again.

I made this recipe exactly as written and it was fabulous. I have to admit that I think I like it more before it was cooked than after - the filling is to die for!!! I am going to use the filling on icecream!!! Not to detract from how deliciouse the pie was once it was cooked. Love it!

This is the best peach pie I have ever made. I will use this peach pie recipe over and over again. I find that you can also make peach cobbler out of this recipe. The cinnamon, cardamon, and ground allspice adds so much flavor to this recipe, it makes this pie soooo --- delicious. I did leave out the rum , and used 1 tablespoon of vanilla. The next time I am going to use rum extact in place of the rum. This pie turned out so perfect. I would advise anyone that uses this recipe to use the fresh peaches has directed. I would rate this recipe has a 5 star recipe.

Delicious! I used 2 bags of frozen peaches, un-thawed, so it did take longer to bake, but that was to be expected. Great flavor and just enough sweetness. Served this warm w/ a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
