Farmhouse Peach Pie

Farmhouse Peach Pie
8 servings

1 recipe single pie crust
4 large peaches
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter

Prepare pie crust and place in pie pan. Peel, core and slice peaches. Combine peaches, sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. Whisk egg and milk; pour over peaches and stir to combine. Pour peaches into crust. Bake pie at 375° for 35 minutes. Meanwhile combine flour and sugars. Cut in butter until crumbly. Top pie with crumb mixture and bake an additional 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool before slicing. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream if desired and enjoy!

A friend of mine, who is one of the best bakers I know, made a peach pie this summer with a crumb topping. It was delicious and I really liked the idea of the crumb topping with the peaches. And Mr. H. loved it! I haven't gotten the recipe from her yet, but had some wonderfully ripe peaches I needed to use this week, so I decided to try to recreate what she had made. I was very pleased with how it turned out! I hope you like it, too!

I live in the peach state and the peaches should be coming into the stores any time now. I'll definitely have to try this recipe. I love a crumb topping. Thanks for sharing on Sweet Indulgences Sunday.

This is the second post I clicked of yours on the linky list. Just based off pictures, and not realizing both submissions came from the same person. I think that says something =]. This looks so darn good, I love anything with peaches in it!
