If you would like to make a low sugar version, you can substitute a couple of the ingredients: instead of regular cool-whip and peach gelatin, use sugar-free versions. Try using fresh peaches or peaches that have been canned in their juice or with a very light syrup.

How to Make Peaches-n-Cream Pie

You’ll need just a few basic ingredients to throw this delicious pie together in just a couple of minutes.

To get started, dissolve the contents of the entire package of gelatin in half a cup of boiling water.

Stir the mixture well until the sugars dissolve completely. Then add the cold water, stirring well.

Fold in the Cool Whip into the lukewarm gelatin mixture. Don’t attempt to use off-brand Cool whip as it doesn’t properly set. At this point, if you’d like small bits of peach pieces in your pie, fold them into the mixture.

Pour the filling into a prepared graham cracker crust, cover, and refrigerate for a couple of hours prior to serving. Generally speaking, it only takes about an hour to set firmly. Just prior to serving, top with additional peach slices.

As you can see from the photos, we used our home-canned peaches for this recipe, but you can use store-bought canned or fresh peaches, whatever you happen to have on hand.

  1. I make mine a little bit different, I use vanilla wafers for the crust!

    Peaches and Cream Pie

    48 vanilla wafers, finely crushed
    1/3 cup butter, melted
    3/4 cup boiling water
    3 oz pkg orange flavor gelatin
    2 cups ice cubes
    1-1/2 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed
    2 fresh peaches, peeled, chopped

    Mix wafer crumbs and butter.  Press onto bottom and up side of 9-inch pie plate.

    Add boiling water to gelatin mix in medium bowl.  Stir 2 min until completely dissolved. Add ice cubes.  Stir until gelatin is slightly thickened. Remove any unmelted ice. Add whipped topping.  Stir until blended. Gently stir in peaches.

    Refrigerate 15 min or until gelatin mixture is thick enough to mound. Spoon into crust. Refrigerate 3 hours or until firm.  Serves 8
