Peach Pie with Pecan Crumb Topping

Posted By Suzanne McMinn On August 23, 2008 @ 5:05 am In Pies & Pastries,The Farmhouse Table | 34 Comments

I’m already missing our fresh peach season here, but luckily I put some sliced peaches away in the freezer so I could visit peach season again right in my oven! This recipe is a combination of the best ideas from two different recipes then I added the twist with the crushed pecans. I love to play with recipes! And peaches are one of my top 10 favorite fruits.

Okay, so I love fruit. It’s hard to pick a favorite!

How to make Peach Pie with Pecan Crumb Topping:

Peach Pie Filling–
4 cups fresh or frozen sliced peaches
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Crumb Mixture–
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup crushed pecans

Toss peaches in a large bowl with flour and sugar. Spoon filling into an unbaked single-crust Foolproof Pie Crust shell. In a small bowl, work butter into the flour and brown sugar with a pastry cutter.
Stir in the crushed pecans (this is how I always crush pecans–put pecans in a plastic baggie, place the baggie on top of a cutting board, then pound the baggie with my little flowery hammer–it’s fun!) then sprinkle mixture evenly over pie. Bake at 375-degrees for 25 minutes on the lower oven rack. Transfer pie to the top oven rack and bake an additional 20 minutes. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!

*If you don’t have fresh peaches, use two 21-ounce cans of prepared peach pie filling, omitting the flour, sugar, and cinnamon in the first step.

So, do you have a favorite fruit? Are you strong enough to pick just one and call it your favorite?

Any fruits out of season in your area now that you’re starting to miss?
