We love to Traeger the most fresh, ripe and seasonal ingredients. You can't really beat the taste! With how tempting, perfectly sun-ripened, and juicy peaches are right now, we saw pans of grilled peach pie on every tree. So we worked our Traeger magic on this tasty Strawberry Pie recipe and decided to use the irresistible peaches that are bursting with flavor and begging to be eaten right now.
NO FUSS GRILLED PEACH PIE
PREP TIME: 5 minutes
COOK TIME: 30 to 40 minutes
RECOMMENDED PELLETS: Apple or Cherry
4 to 5 fresh, ripe peaches
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 refrigerated pie crust, softened as directed on box
1/4 cup peach preserves
Whipped cream for serving
Start with the Traeger on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 375 degrees F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.
Remove pit and cut the peaches into thin slices.
In medium bowl, mix the peaches, sugar and cornstarch; set aside.
Unroll pie crust. Place in ungreased pie pan. With back of spoon, spread preserves evenly on crust.
Arrange the peach slices in an even layer in the pie pan.
Slightly fold crust over filling.
Place a baking sheet upside down on the grill grate to make an elevated surface. Put the pan with pie on top so it is elevated off grill. (This will help prevent the bottom from overcooking.)
Cook the pie for 30 to 40 minutes or until crust is golden brown, the filling is bubbly and the bottom of the pie looks completely cooked (this part is only visible if you use a glass pyrex pan.).
Remove from grill; cool 10 minutes before serving. Add some whipped cream on top to reach peaches and cream perfection.
