When it comes to desserts pies are truly an American Classic, and a Peach Blueberry Custard is at the top of my list of Summertime Desserts. Wouldn’t your family love to sit down to this delicious Peach Blueberry Custard Pie?
Summertime is definitely the best time of year. Everywhere you go you see fresh fruit and vegetables, and summertime food is simply the best. Being a southern boy at heart, I do love my pies, and nothing beats an old-fashioned Peach Pie. I just love walking into the room and smelling ripe peaches. What a great sensation. Then biting into one of those peaches as the juices run down my chin……sigh……now that’s summertime to me.
Peaches, Nectarines, and Plums, the holy trinity of stone fruits, but my favorite summertime pie fruit, has to be peaches! Just a plain peach pie with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream is a wonderful thing, but make a sweet custard, blend in your fresh peaches and throw a nice handful of blueberries, add in a streusel topping and your tasting down-home goodness.
Ingredients to make Peach Blueberry Custard Pie
I do have a go-to recipe for this pie, it was standard fare in my restaurant days, and it’s also something I have not made in quite a few years.
Let’s start by gathering the ingredients we need to make the filling for a Peach Blueberry Custard Pie. In Chef Speak this is called the Mise en Place which translates into Everything in its Place.
Not only does setting your ingredients up ahead of time speed the cooking process, but it also helps ensure you have everything you need to make the dish.
Making your own pie crust can be a hassle, but I do recommend giving it a try. If not there are lots of options at your local supermarket. You can choose from frozen or refrigerated premade crusts. And if you do have a favorite pie crust recipe, please feel free to use your own.
I use a food processor to make my pie crust, it’s a pretty simple process that provides an excellent pie crust.
The secret to a good pie crust using a food processor is freezing the butter and Crisco pieces before using them and having ice in the water to make sure its as cold as possible.
After placing the peaches in the pie shell, pour the custard filling overtop. It’s okay if a peach or two peaks out of the custard.
The last step before baking is adding the blueberries. Now it’s time to start the baking process.
If you’re not a fan of blueberries, feel free to leave them out.
While the pie is baking make the streusel topping. Sometimes I add oats into the streusel mix, it adds a nice texture. If you decide to use oats cut the flour and sugar back to ½ cup each and use ½ cup of oats.
After baking for 25 minutes, remove the pie from the oven and top with the streusel topping. Bake for an additional 25-30 minutes or until the streusel is a nice golden brown.
I’m a little lazy about covering the crust with a foil, and you can see the exposed crust got a little too brown. But since my wife never eats the crust I didn’t worry too much, especially since I love to eat that crunchy crust!

I just ordered a set of Adjustable Pie Crust Shields, so my finished pies look as pretty as they taste.
I loved every bite of this delicious pie. The peaches were sweet and fresh, the blueberries added a tartness, the custard added creaminess, and the streusel a crunch that just pushed it over the top!

This dish looks amazing. I wish I could eat that right now!
I discovered peach custard pies a few years ago and I’m never looking back. They really are a treat. Blueberries would be a delicious addition to this pie.

This would be perfect with some vanilla ice cream! Might have to go pick some fresh blueberries to make this for the family!
What a wonderful combination of peach and blueberry – two of my favorite fruits. And anything with streusel is a win for me!!!
Can’t never have too many peach recipes! Bookmarking to try next weekend!
Yum….and just in time for peach season. An awesome pairing with the blueberries too.
This is such a decadent dessert! This was a hit and can’t wait to make it again!
Oh, Dennis! You stole my heart on this one! I’m an absolute sucker for custard pies, but the crumbly peach and blueberry toppings take this to whole new (BRILLIANT!) levels! It’s really got it ALL – creamy, sweet, and tangy, plus a little bit of crunch. WOW!
This pie was SO delicious and the addition of greek yogurt was perfect!
I’m so in love with the pie! The custard is perfectly smooth and creamy, and it’s such a great way to enjoy summer fruit. I’ll definitely make this again this summer.
Perfect timing. I have a customer who wants a Peach Custard Pie (i might suggest the addition of blueberries like in yours) and this popped up in my email today!
We Have a recipe somewhere at work; the pies didn’t sell well so the recipe got put away somewhere. This will save me loads of time, and it sounds like a better version as far as the custard goes.
Love the title of this one. The pie looks fantastic.
How about this pie for breakfast, lunch AND dinner? Sage is sitting here with me and she agrees, YUM!

Couldn't agree more with the first part of the blog post title. If I had a choice, I would eat dessert first all the time. Secondly, ditto on the fact that peaches, nectarines and plums are indeed the holy trinity of stone fruits. This looks scrumptious!
Hi Chef D~ We are going to eat at a local farm this weekend.. Fountain Prairie and I am going to make this to bring along! Can't wait! miss megan
