Peach Sour Cream Pie with Instant Vanilla Pudding

This delicious sour cream pie with instant vanilla pudding has a homemade cinnamon and pecan crust. If you usually use store-bought graham cracker crusts, why not have a go at making your own? This piecrust is made with graham cracker crumbs, cinnamon, and pecans. If you do not want to use nuts, simply omit them from the recipe and increase the amount of graham cracker crumbs to two cups. Homemade piecrusts are usually a bit softer than the readymade ones but fresher tasting and you can add any spices or flavorings you like. The cinnamon in this piecrust works nicely with the cinnamon-sprinkled peaches decorating the top.

Maybe you have had a fresh raspberry pie or a raspberry cream pie before. Berries are wonderful on pies too, especially fresh berries. If you are using instant pudding, you will find that making homemade pies is especially quick and easy. A lot of dessert recipes take time to set but you can make instant pudding in a few minutes, which is why it is called instant pudding. The piecrust is quick and easy to make. If you make the instant pudding while the piecrust bakes, this whole recipe should not take more than thirty minutes to make. This includes the time for the piecrust to cool down.

Creamy pudding pies are delicious with crumb crusts and a layer of peaches, berries, or another fruit on top finishes these pies off perfectly. The sour cream in this peach pie recipe adds a delicious tang. If you are using pudding to make pies, it is sometimes a good idea to make it the day before, so it has plenty of time to set and chill properly. This is not necessary if you are using an instant pudding, like in this vanilla pie recipe.

This mouthwatering pie is easy to make, even though the crust is homemade too. If you are in a rush you could use a readymade graham cracker piecrust but making it yourself is very simple, since it is just a matter of combining the ingredients, pressing them into a pie plate, and baking the crust. The vanilla pudding layer is easy to make and the peaches are a wonderfully sweet and juicy topping. Make sure they are very well drained before using them, else they can make the vanilla pudding layer soggy.
