Peach and Pecan Pie is the perfect combination of texture added to a smooth custard pie. Perfect for family gatherings and the Holidays it is your new pie favorite!
Peach and Pecan Custard Pie is the perfect Southern combination in Pie form. We love using fresh, Alabama grown Chilton County peaches for this one as well as beautiful pecan halves straight from Alabama over from our friends at PRIESTER'S PECANS.
Now if you have been with us for very long, you know that we love pie. We have lots of great pie recipes that we encourage you to find and make. One of our recent and lighter favorites is our LIGHT KEY LIME PIE. You could always go with a classic pie too like our BUTTERMILK PIE. Whichever one you choose, don't forget to make your own PIE CRUST from scratch!
Like any good custard pie, the magic happens when you cook it and allow it to set. Just be patient with this one, it will turn out great every time.
- Pecan halves
- Pie Crust
- All Purpose Flour

See recipe card for quantities.
Making the custard is really all the work required in this pie and we make it easy! Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, add sugar. Sift sugar well to remove any clumps.
Add in milk, yogurt, eggs, flour, cornstarch, vanilla and salt. Mix well either with a whisk or a hand mixer until smooth.
Prepare your crust in a pie tin and place on a cookie sheet. Place all but a few peach slices and pecans, reserving some for the top, on the pie crust. Pour custard over. You may see some peaches and pecans float but don't worry about that. Add reserved peaches and pecans directly to top of pie.
Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and tent edges if need be and lower oven temperature to 350 degrees. Bake for 30-60 minutes more until a knife comes out clean in the center after testing. Cool for one hour.
Once pie is cooled to room temperature, cover and store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
Tips and Tricks
Yes. If using frozen be sure you thaw and drain thoroughly. No room for a soggy pie here. If you use canned peaches, opt for the ones packed in their own juice and rinse and drain well.
Yes. As with all of our recipes, feel free to get creative here. Walnuts would be a great substitution as would cashews.
Whatever saves you stress and strain in the kitchen is what I am on board for. I believe everyone should be able to make a homemade pie crust but I also believe that if that is not your thing, you can still find joy in cooking with using some time saving short cuts.

Some peaches and pecans could float to the top when pouring custard in. It will be fine if that does happen.
Tent edges if needed half way during cooking time to prevent burnt edges.
Always place pie plates for custards on a cookie sheet. This will prevent a mess in your oven if the pie filling boils over during cooking.
