  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients. Position the rack in the center of the oven and heat it to 425 F.
  2. Step 2

    Line a 9-inch pie plate with a sheet of pastry. Place the pie plate in the refrigerator until you are ready to fill it.
  3. Step 3

    In a large bowl, combine the granulated sugar, brown sugar, flour, and salt; mix well. Add the sliced peaches and lemon juice to the sugar and flour mixture; toss to combine thoroughly and let stand for 5 minutes.
  4. Step 4

    Remove the pie shell from the refrigerator and fill it with the peach filling mixture—dot with the diced butter.
  5. Step 5

    Top the pie with the second pie pastry sheet; trim and crimp the edge . Cut a few vents in the top of the pie to allow steam to escape.
  6. Step 6

    Mix the egg yolk with 1 tablespoon of water and lightly brush over the crust.
  7. Step 7

    Bake the pie at 425 F for 15 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 375 F for 50 to 60 minutes, or until golden brown and the filling is bubbling. Check on the crust from time to time and use a pie shield or tent the pie loosely with a sheet of foil if it is browning too quickly.
  8. Step 8

    Cool the pie on a rack for at least 2 hours before slicing.
