Peach Crumble Pie ~ Pie of the Month

Yum already!

Peach Pie makes me week in the knees. Well pie in general makes me week in knees….but peach pie really makes me swoon. Oh my, the caramely smell of brown sugar,nutmeg, and peach juices oozing out and burning on the bottom of my oven…heavenly I tell you!

 

I bought peaches at the farmers market last weekend, enough for a smoothie, a few for eating and three pies.  Why make one pie?  Who does that?!  Come on, one is never enough!

So I made three!

One for me, one for the neighbors and one for a sweet friend.

For three pies you need about 12-15 peaches.  I’m not too good at math unless it applies to baking….so that equals 4-5 peaches per pie.  I realize that not everyone is quite as pie crazed as I, so I’ll give you the down-low on how to make yourself  just one, and if you like you may feel free to double, triple, even quadruple the recipe….God love ya!

First you will need to make a pie crust or two.  Click HERE  for my Easy ‘NO FAIL’ Pie Crust recipe.


For 1 peach pie: Skin and slice 4-5 peaches, then add 1/3 cup Flour, 1/3 cup Brown Sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg mix well to combine.  Set aside.

 

Combine 4 tablespoons of Butter, 1/3 cup Flour, 1/3 cup Sugar (brown or white), 1/4 teaspoon Salt, 1/2 teaspoon ground Cinnamon.

 

Give this a whirl in your food processor or cut together with a fork or pastry cutter until it resembles oatmeal.

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees…sometimes if I want my pie to be done quicker (as in 15 minutes) I will bump up the heat to 375, but then I often will cover my crust with tin foil so it doesn’t burn.  Now it’s time for the assembly!  Roll out pie dough, place in plate, and crimp the edges.  Fill crust with peaches.

 Pour the crumble crust over the top.

Does my hand look like it’s from a giantess?  Or what?  I really don’t have large hands…but for some reason I think my hand makes this pie look like a mini pie.  It’s a normal 9 inch pie…..so anyway moving right along…..spread the crumble out over the peaches leaving a little of the fruit showing between the crust and the crumble, just a little.  Why?  The crumble topping will sort of settle in toward the crust, but it also allows some of the beautiful fruit to show through, teasing and tempting you to dive in to this mouthwatering pie.

Place Peach Crumble Pie on a baking sheet, to save your oven from possible pie over bake.  Bake pie at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

Case in point with the fruit peeking out.  Knees wobbling.

 

What is your favorite fruit pie? Blueberry? Raspberry? Apple?

 

Have a great weekend! Enjoy! Luvya, Sheila

      Brendagirl, I can’t believe all the the lovelyness that you create and you say you can’t make pie crust! You are not alone, I think possibly there is a piecrust gene, and maybe your momma didn’t pass it down to you ; D hahaha JK. I know it takes making alot of pies to get the feel for crust…it’s fickle. Don’t lose hope my friend. xoxox Sheila

    This is beyond amazing, Sheila! I am a fool for anything with a crumbly topping and I bet this is perfect – the peaches have been so amazing here this year!

      The peaches are perfect this year. I froze a 1/2 a bushel last week and I think I need to go back and freeze some more!
