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:
Brown Sugar Peach Crumble Pie
1 Pie Crust (Sally’s Recipe, or pre-made. I used pre-made to save time.)
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
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) 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!
