georgia peach honey pie


moving to the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches.
i'm moving to the country, gonna eat me a lot of peaches.
peaches come from a can, they were put there by a man.. in a factory down town.

now that i've got this song stuck in your head for the rest of the day (or week), here is my recipe for a georgia peach pie sweetened with bee raw's raw georgia holly blossom honey (how fitting, right?) this honey has an strong floral taste, with a hint of freshly cut pine.

i am pretty excited for peach season now that i am back in the niagara region & live around the corner from a peach farm! i am going to be making peach desserts & eating fresh peaches all month long. i feel like i have been really into baking with ALL the in season fruits this summer has to offer. because of my excitement i thought this pie deserved not one, but TWO braided crust. i could have kept going, but maybe it would have been a braided overkill. as if that is a thing though, right?

happy peach season!


for the dough

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, cold & cubed
  • 1/3 cup vegetable shortening, cold
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup ice water
  • 1 egg, for egg wash (optional)

for the peach honey filling

  • 6-8 ripe georgia peaches, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup bee raw georgia holly blossom honey
  • 1/3 cup raw sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  • begin by making the dough. using a food processor pulse the flour, salt and sugar.
  • add the cubed butter, shortening and vanilla. pulse until a crumb like mixture forms.
  • add the cold water one tablespoon at a time until the crumbs begin to come together. turn out onto a pastry board and shape dough into a disk. if dough seems wet, add a bit more flour. if the dough seems dry, add a bit more water.
  • wrap in cling wrap and refrigerate for minimum 2 hours.
  • in a large mixing bowl mix the peaches with the honey, sugar & vanilla.
  • sprinkle with cornstarch & cinnamon. toss until evenly combined.
  • set aside while you roll out the pie dough.
  • heavily flour a smooth surface & roll out the dough to 1/4 to 1/2 an inch thing.
  • line pie dish & fill with peach mixture.
  • top crust with remainder of dough, in a lattice top or braided edge! bonus points for two braids;)
