Sweet, buttery, salty, and oh so creamy, this is the best Peaches and Cream Pretzel Pie. The crust is a mix of salty pretzels, sweet honey, and a bit of butter. The cream filling is made with four base ingredients…heavy cream, crème fraîche, vanilla, and a touch of sugar. The filling is spooned into the salty crust and topped with in-season honeyed peaches. Trust me, this peaches and cream pie is roll your eyes back delicious. Every bite is sweet, salty, creamy, and bursting with juicy peaches. The perfect summertime treat!

Happy Friday, happy August!

And for real, thank goodness it’s Friday, what a week! At this current moment in time, I want nothing more than to tell you about this pie and then go chill for the rest of the weekend. Will that actually happen? No probably not. If you couldn’t already tell from my tone, it’s been a bit of a week. Some of it great, some of it, well, a bit frustrating. You know those days when one thing goes wrong, and then it’s like a domino effect, and everything goes wrong?

Yeah, that kind of sums up parts of my week. I mean, don’t get me wrong, nothing horrible happened, it just had some frustrating moments. Such is life though, right? It’s not always sunshine and daisies, but it’s ok. Days like today just make you appreciate the good ones all that much more. So on the bright side, one not so great day means I can look forward to an amazing day in the very near feature.

Positivity people…let’s embrace it.

Also? Let’s embrace this peaches and cream pretzel pie. Meaning, let’s talk about it and then make it this weekend!

Sound good? GREAT. I’m going to tell you all the details and then impatiently stalk Instagram for your photos of pie all weekend. My favorite thing in the world is viewing what everyone has made on Instagram. It’s so fun and you guys always do such a good job!!

Moving along.

The crust. It’s made with pretzels, honey, and butter. Sooo, it’s salty, sweet, and buttery. It gets toasted in the oven until golden and lightly browned, giving it a bit of a nutty browned butter flavor. Meaning it is perfectly delicious.

The filling? It’s also perfect. Made with cream and my current favorite ingredient, crème fraîche. Using crème fraîche in addition to heavy cream creates a light, airy, and extra creamy whipped cream. Lightly sweetened and flavored with vanilla, it’s the perfect rich cream to spoon into the salty crust.

For the peaches, I kept them simple. Honey + peaches = the best summer combo.

Now, layer everything together and you’ll have the perfect peaches and cream pretzel pie. It. Is. DELICIOUS.

And oh so pretty too.

Ok, now some notes because you need to know a few things.

Thing one: you need to allow time for the pie to chill. The cream needs time to set up and become firm enough for slicing, so make sure to plan ahead when making this.

Thing two: slicing this pie is messy. Yeah, messy. There’s really no other way to say it. With the peaches on top and the cream on the bottom, it’s just a messy pie to cut into. Do not let this scare you away. Sometimes you just need to embrace messy. In the case of this pie, messy is a good thing.

Thing three: well, thing two brings me to thing three. If you want a cleaner cut, freeze your pie, which is what I did for these photos. Freezing the pie makes creating clean slices super easy. By the time you’ve sliced the pie, it’s pretty thawed out and perfect for eating. That said, the frozen pie will not be quite as creamy as the non-frozen pie. Which is why I’m providing you with BOTH variations. Use the one you’ll love best.

And with that. I think we should all spend a little time on Friday making peaches and cream pie. I’d start with this laid back pasta dinner and finish up with pie. I’d also like to binge-watch the new Veronica Mars (anyone else with me on that?).

Certainly my ideal night.

See you all Sunday for another favorites post!

Ingredients

Pretzel Crust

Peaches and Cream Filling

Instructions

  • 1. To make the crust. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
    2. In a medium bowl, combine the pretzel crumbs, butter, honey, and cinnamon, and mix until combined. Remove 2 tablespoons of the dough and spread on a small baking sheet. Press the remaining dough into an 8-9 inch pie plate. Transfer both to the oven and bake until toasted, about 8 minutes. Let cool completely before filling. Break the extra dough into crumbs and set aside for serving.
    3. Meanwhile, make the cream. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the cream and vanilla on medium-high speed until soft peaks form, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the crème fraîche and sugar and beat until incorporated, 30 seconds. Chill until ready to use.
    4. To assemble, spread the raspberry jam over the bottom of the cooled crust and then spoon the cream over top, spreading in an even layer. Cover and chill for 6 hours, preferably overnight, until firm. Alternately, see freezing directions below.
    5. To make the peaches. Bring the honey to a low boil in a medium saucepan, simmer 1 minute and remove from the heat and stir in the peaches, tossing to combine. Let sit 10 minutes, until cooled.
    6. To serve, spoon a few peach slices over the cream, reserving the remaining peaches + honey for serving individually. Add a handful of raspberries and sprinkle on the reserve pretzel crumbs. Slice and serve immediately, topped with additional peaches and honey sauce.
    To make a frozen pie. Complete the recipe through step 4. Chill the pie while you make the peaches, then top the pie with peaches and freeze until firm, 3-4 hours or overnight. To serve, remove the pie 10 minutes before slicing. Slice and serve as directed above. The pie can be frozen for up to 2 weeks.

Notes

To make ahead: if you'd like to make the pie ahead time, just keep the peaches off the pie until serving (unless you are making the frozen pie). You can keep the pie and honeyed peaches separately in the fridge for about a day before you are ready to serve.

    This was amazing and pleased everybody! Used neufchâtel cheese instead of creme fraîche, added to the peaches with other stone fruits—donut peaches, nectarines, plums, and cherries—and increased the honey from 1/3C–1/2C to accommodate the extra fruit. I froze just the crust with the filling inside, then sliced and topped with the fruit (not frozen, just refrigerated) and crumbly topping. It was like ice cream pie, and the saltiness of the crust balanced perfectly with the sweetness of the fruit 🙂 thank you for this recipe!

    1. Hey Alex,
      Happy Sunday! I am so glad this recipe was enjoyed, thanks a lot for making it! Thanks for sharing what worked well for you. xxTieghan

    Love this delicious summer treat! Made it for the second time this time for my mothers birthday celebration & it was a hit! This time I made it with mascarpone instead of cream cheese as I couldn’t find crème fraîche at my local market. I think it was a great substitute & will use that again the next time I make this!

    1. Hey Jules,
      Wonderful! I love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks a lot for giving it a try. Happy Weekend! xTieghan

    This pie is so refreshing for the summer- but a CRUTIAL part of this is the peaches and honey on top. The pretzel crust is awesome, but the filling doesn’t have a ton of flavor on its own. We tried a slice before the fruit and sauce and were not impressed. You need the peaches and that yummy honey sauce to tie everything together and make it amazing. I even added a dash of cinnamon to the honey and peaches. Also would add a little more jam on the bottom- didn’t taste it at all. Once everything was together though, it really did taste awesome!

    1. Hey Allie,
      Fantastic! Thanks so much for making this recipe, I am delighted that it was enjoyed:) xTieghan

    Love the fresh peaches with a light filling. I used a deep pie dish . Next time I’ll make more crust to spread out . This is a great summer treat! Thank you so much for a wonderful desert

    Out of this world delicious during peach season here in New England. Sweet, salty fruity, creamy, perfection in a pie plate! I followed the recipe exactly, I wouldn’t change a thing. Thanks, Tieghan!

    1. Hey Mary,
      Wonderful! Thanks so much for making this recipe, I love to hear that it was enjoyed! Have a great weekend! xTieghan

  6. I am thinking about making this tomorrow. Do you think cutting up chunks of peach and adding it to the cream filling to chill would be ok? Looking for a little more peach that just on top!

    1. Hey Monica,
      Sure, I think that would be delicious! I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

    All I can say is Yum! Sweet and salty…nothing better in my opinion. Will definitely make this again.

    1. Hey Jill,
      Happy Friday! Love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks for giving it a try! Have a great weekend:) xTieghan

  8. Made this today but made the pretzel crust kinda chunky by adding the pretzels gradually to food processor with other crust ingredients. I also made it in an 8×8 pan because it’s easier to store. Omitted the raspberry part and just loaded up on the peaches. Also I swirled apricot preserves into the cream part instead of layering. So YUM! Thanks for the idea!!

    1. Hey Angela,
      Happy Wednesday!! Love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks a bunch for making it! xxTieghan

    This recipe is incredible. So much better than cheesecake. Sweet, salty, light, fresh—delicious! Doubled the recipe last week and froze one. Worked so well that I’m quadrupling the recipe and am freezing a couple. I would say frozen pies need more than 30 minutes to thaw and I would not freeze w/ the peach topping, but would put the refrigerated peaches on top of the thawed pie.

    1. Hey Emily,
      Happy Wednesday!! Love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks a bunch for making it! xxTieghan

    This was AMAZING! So easy to make, and light not too sweet and fresh 🙌
    To avoid a crumbly mess when serving, made these individual clear glasses with the baked pretzel crumbled in the bottom, scoop of raspberry jam on top, whipped filling and topped with the sweet honey peaches! I made them in the morning and let sit in the fridge for 10 hours- PERFECTION

    1. Hey Sarah,
      Awesome! So great to hear that this recipe was enjoyed and thanks for making it! Have the best week! xTieghan

  11. Thank you for this fantastic recipe! It’s going to be a summer tradition in our house. This pie is all sorts of sweet & salty and pretty as a picture. It was so nice to be able to make a gluten free option.

    1. Hey Heather,
      Fantastic! Thanks so much for making this recipe, I am so glad it was enjoyed! Have a great weekend☀️ xTieghan

  12. I would love to make this in a 9 inch spring form pan. It would make transport easier while keeping it cold. Do you think I would need to double the recipe of crust and filling? I can’t wait to make it with gluten free pretzels for a friend with celiac. I love the sweet and salty combo.

    1. Hey Claire,
      I am sure you would be fine to follow the recipe as is:) Please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

    To die for!! Perfect dessert to start off peach season. I’m going to adapt it for a baked cheesecake in a couple weeks, too!
