My Vegan Summer Peach Pie is rustic and delicate. Sweet and spiced. Light yet rich. Tart and buttery. I add a few unique flavor accents to my pie - a hint of cayenne and a dash of cinnamon. Butter (vegan!), spices, peaches - dessert heaven. And that flaky homemade crust? Easier than you think. So grab a bag of fresh summer peaches, pull on an apron - and dust some flour on your nose. It's summer pie baking time!

Spicy Pie. My favorite twist on "peach pie" is to add in spice - almost like a cinnamon-y apple pie. The sweet, tender peaches are coated in a light, spicy warmth that makes them sing.
Fresh peaches float on the par-baked crust. Ready for the top layer and a good 50 minutes in the oven..
No need to remove the peach skin. Those skins add so much color, texture and nutrients!..
