Fresh Peach Crumble Pie

I’ve been traveling a bit – peach-wise – the past couple of weeks.   I’ve had South Carolina Peaches, I’m waiting on the Georgia Peaches, and this week my farm market had Ohio grown peaches.  This recipe is a combination of a favorite filling and a favorite streusel topping plus my all-time favorite pie crust.  It’s a perfect dessert for a summer day.

PEACH CRUMBLE PIE

  • Pastry for a 9″single crust pie, unbaked (click here for my favorite recipe)

Filling:

  • 4 cups sliced fresh peaches
  • 1/4 cup Minute Tapioca
  • Pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tblsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/8 tsp. almond extract

Crumble Topping:

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 Tblsp. butter, cut into small cubes

Preheat oven @ 375 degrees F

In a large bowl, combine peaches, tapioca, salt, sugar, lemon juice and almond extract.  Set aside.

In a small bowl, combine topping ingredients:  flour, sugar and butter.  Set aside.

Stir peaches and pour into pastry lined 9″ pie pan.  Spoon crumble topping on, covering all of the top surface of peaches.

Place on a flat pan to catch spills and bake @ 375 degrees F for approximately 45 minutes.

Cool on a wire rack.

Best served after cooling to room temperature.  Servings:  6 to 8

  1. Lillian..I made your pie the other day and it is simply delicious. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed reading all you interesting stories and recipes on your site..I’ve been going through all the months. So many of your stories have brought back so many happy memories for me of my mother (who passed away 3 years ago), but I love all the old timey things you have shared on your blog! Thanks so much!
