  • 5 Cups Fresh Sliced Peaches (if you don’t have fresh peaches, check my canned peaches pie recipe)
  • 1/3 Cup All-Purpose Flour or Tapioca Flour
  • 1 Tbs. Lemon Juice
  • 1 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. Cinnamon


Wash and peel your fresh peaches. Slice them into desired size.

Add flour, cinnamon, and granulated sugar to mixing bowl and stir together.

Add your peaches and lemon juice to the mixture and combine.

Now your filling is ready to go! Simply add to pie crust or other dessert and follow instructions.

Substitutions and Alternative Ingredients

If you are out of any of these ingredients, there are some other options. Keep in mind that some can effect the texture and flavor of your peach pie filling, but they all work in a pinch.

Fresh Peaches: If peaches aren’t in season you can go with canned or frozen peaches. Both work great for making pie filling so use whichever you have available.

Flour: While all purpose flour or tapioca flour are my go to cornstarch alternatives, you can use almond flour or cassava flour to thicken this pie filling.

Lemon Juice: Lemon juice provides the necessary acidity to bring out the flavor in your pie filling. But if you are all out you can use lemon zest or even apple cider vinegar in a pinch.

Cinnamon: If you’re out of cinnamon, you have a few replacement options. Go with pumpkin pie spice, apple pie spice, or allspice at a 1:1 ratio.
