Last Friday I posted a Peach Crumb Bar recipe, since we are enjoying Palisade Peaches right now. This week I wanted to make a pie, and I found a great recipe on Pinterest. Paul and I agreed – best peach pie ever. YUM!

This comes from Sally’s Baking Addiction. This might be one of my new favorite baking blogs and I also just had to order one of her cookbooks. So many delicious recipes. (Cookbook links on her About page: https://sallysbakingaddiction.com/about/ ) Here is the pie recipe:

Peach Pie The Loopy Ewe

Brown Sugar Peach Crumble Pie

1 Pie Crust (Sally’s Recipe, or pre-made. I used pre-made to save time.)

Pie Filling:
7 cups peach chunks, peeled (not slices)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
2 tsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

Crumble:
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup unsalted butter (melt & cool)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional. I didn’t add these in)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Mix your peach chunks together with the rest of the pie filling ingredients and stir to combine.

Using a slotted spoon, add the filling mixture to the prepared (unbaked) pie shell. This keeps the extra liquid out of your pie (which would make it too soupy after baking.)

Prepare crumble by mixing the brown sugar, cinnamon and flour. Then add in the butter and walnuts. Add this thick crumbly mixture to the top of your pie.

Place your pie pan on top of a baking sheet to catch any baking drips. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, then turn the oven down to 375 and bake for an additional 30-35 minutes. (I added a pie crust shield on top after the first 20 minutes, to prevent the edges from browning too quickly.)

Allow the pie to cool for 3 hours before serving. Your sauce will thicken up as it cools. Cover pie tightly and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

Last week’s contest winner is: Diane E. from CA, whose favorite fruit is raspberries. Diane – please email us (support@theloopyewe.com) with your current address and we’ll get your prize shipped out!

This week’s contest question: What is your current favorite binge-worthy show? (Just in case some of us need some ideas for this upcoming long weekend.) We just finished the last two seasons of The Great British Baking Show at our house. Happy to hear that the new one just started and will be available week to week on Netflix. So what else is good? Leave a comment below and we’ll draw a winner next week!

Check back on Monday:

The Loopy Ewe Fall Challenge

It’s a holiday weekend here in the U.S., so we will be closed in-store on Monday for Labor Day. (As always, the website stays open 24/7/365. We’ll get your weekend orders packed up and shipped out on Tuesday.)

We will, however, be posting our First of the Month Update on Monday which means September scissors (pumpkins), needleminder (sheep), and our knit kit, and sewing kit for the month.

We will also be posting our new Fall Challenge on the blog on Monday, and you do not want to miss it.

Lots of choices for you, lots of fun activities planned, lots of Challenge contests, and new ways to talk to us about it. Check back on Monday!

Have a great weekend with lots of family and knitting fun –

  1. I am so excited to hear what’s in store for fall! I’m ready!! 🙂
    We’ve been binging a show called Fringe. It’s quirky, a little like x-files mixed with the Librarians.

  2. What a great recipe! I’m in! My current fave to binge watch is “Chasing the Cure.” This is a remarkable series that truly changes lives. So many hurting people whose conditions can be alleviated! There is nothing like it that I know of. ❤️

  3. The Great British Baking Show is back today on Netflix! So that’s my weekend TV watching. Recent binge-watches: Travelers on Netflix (time-travel scifi) and Good Omens on Amazon Prime.

  4. I’m currently binging on all 19 seasons of Midsommer Murders! I’ve been watching it all summer – it never seems to end! The terrible people are never too terrible, and nice people make you wish they were your neighbors and there is plenty of humour both verbal and visual! Definitely binge-worthy!

    1. Totally! Midsomer Murders is my favorite! I hope there are enough episodes to keep me watching for a long time. I’m also enjoying The Kominsky Method on Netflix.

  5. Right now we are binging Brooklyn 99 on Hulu. We wanted another funny show after binging Psych on Amazon Prime earlier in the summer.

  6. Call The Midwife.
    I have watched episodes here and there but now am going thru all of them in sequence.
    Of course, it helps that I was a NICU nurse and worked with an English trained midwife who would talk about how much of the same things she experienced as were shown on the show!

  7. I dvr several shows and binge watch those while knitting. I’ll also put on whatever sport is on. I watch golf, baseball, and soccer right now, with football coming soon.

  8. I’ve been watching “Sugar Rush” – bakers have a set amount of time to make things but if they finish early they get to bank that time for the final round.
    It’s been a wonderful summer, hasn’t it?!

  9. I’m always excited for a new season of Nailed It! on Netflix. It’s a baking show with regular clueless people trying to recreate really complicated cakes. Too much fun!

  10. Oh so many…..Umbrella Academy, Handmaid’s Tale, Harlots, The Great British Baking Show, The Crown. Supernatural is about to start it’s final season, so if you’ve never watched that, there’s currently 14 seasons to enjoy!

  11. I have 2 binge worthy shows….. Both are a MUST SEE!!!

    1.) “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel“ on Amazon Video/Amazon Prime TV. My husband & I came across this one night and were hooked. We binge watched the 1st season in three nights!

    2.) Yellowstone” on the Paramount Network

  12. I’m anxiously waiting for The Crown to return to Netflix in November. Recently, I’ve binge watched Stranger Things, and the 1st season of Broadchurch. Two more seasons to go.

  13. Lots of binging during Camp Loopy- I favor documentaries b/c it’s easier to stay focused on the knitting_ Planet Earth, Nature, This Strange Rock. Anything narrated by Sir David Attenborough.
    Also Mindhunter- creepy at times, but good.

    For fun- Versailles (really racy)- love the 16th century men’s clothing and shoes- fabulous.

    History (and gore)- The Last Kingdom; life was nasty, brutish, and short. But can’t wait for season 4 and more Uhtred, Finnan, Sitric, Father Beoca, Baby Monk, and the awesome Aethelfled. The books are fantastic (Bernard Cornwell).

  14. Love “The Expanse”. Only 3 seasons (on Amazon). Bought and read all the kindle books, now working my way through the audiobooks! I have become a great fan of audiobooks in lieu of TV while knitting.

    Someone mentioned “Barney Miller”, yes! I wish they had more seasons on Amazon. I love the old TV shows: News Radio, Frasier, Monk, Taxi, Mary Tyler Moore, Dick Van Dyke, You Bet Your Life, Andy Griffith. Love it when Aunt Bea puts on her white gloves for her afternoon shopping trip downtown.

  15. Yesterday I started watching Virgin River on Netflix. I am laughing because husband laughs when I watch these kind of shows, but now he is hooked on it too!
