Strawberry peach pie is a delightful dessert that combines the sweet and tart flavors of strawberries and peaches in a buttery, flaky crust.
This pie is perfect for summer when both fruits are in season, but you can also make it year-round using frozen fruits.
Here’s a guide on what goes well with strawberry peach pie I posted on Pinterest.
Best Crust for Strawberry Peach Pie
The crust is an essential part of any pie. For a strawberry peach pie, a classic buttery, flaky pie crust works best.
The rich, buttery flavor of the crust complements the sweet and tart flavors of the strawberries and peaches.
You can also add a bit of sugar to your crust for an extra touch of sweetness.
Variations of Strawberry Peach Pie
While a classic strawberry peach pie is delicious on its own, you can also try different variations to mix things up:
- Crumble Topping: Add a crumble topping made of flour, sugar, and butter for an extra layer of texture and sweetness.
- Lattice Crust: Make a lattice crust for a beautiful, rustic look. This also allows some of the steam to escape while the pie is baking, preventing it from becoming soggy.
- Almond Extract: Add a bit of almond extract to the filling for a hint of nutty flavor.
- Spices: Add spices like cinnamon or nutmeg to the filling for a bit of warmth and complexity.
Accompaniments for Strawberry Peach Pie
Strawberry peach pie is delicious on its own, but it can be even better with the right accompaniments:
- Vanilla Ice Cream: A scoop of vanilla ice cream is a classic accompaniment for any fruit pie. The creamy, sweet flavor of the ice cream complements the tartness of the fruit.
- Whipped Cream: A dollop of whipped cream adds a light, creamy touch.
- Custard: Pour some warm custard over your pie for a rich, indulgent treat.
Drinks to Pair with Strawberry Peach Pie
The right drink can enhance the flavors of your pie. Here are a few options:
- Coffee: The bitterness of coffee balances the sweetness of the pie, making it a perfect pairing.
- Tea: A light, floral tea like chamomile or Earl Grey can complement the flavors of the strawberry and peach.
- Dessert Wine: A sweet dessert wine like Moscato or a late harvest Riesling can bring out the fruit flavors in the pie.
