Peach Pie the Dunkin Way

We had purchased a bunch of gorgeous Peaches from the local farmers market and they were ripening fast, so I decided to make a Peach Pie, one of my husbands favorite pies! He, however does not like any cinnamon, nutmeg or anything to distract from the taste of the Peaches.

I only had one crust and have no idea how to make a decent crust (one of the last items on my list of things I have yet to master). I decided to use crust on the bottom and more of a streusel type topping, it worked out very well and I don't think I will make a 2 crusted fruit pie again! I also added some chopped cashews to the topping for a bit of extra decadence.

The crust, the perfectly ripe and juicy peaches with the crunch of the topping, was a winner!

1 deep dish pie crust
4 large peaches, peeled, cored and sliced
1 tsp Vanilla
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup of sugar (you could use brown sugar)
1/2 tsp corn starch

Pre-bake your pie crust at 350 for 10 minutes

In the meantime mix your peaches, vanilla, lemon juice, sugar and corn starch and set aside

To make the crust:

1.5 cups of rolled oats
2 tbl chilled butter
1/4 brown sugar
1/4 to 1/2 cup chopped cashews (optional)

Mix well with your fingers until crumbly and well incorporated

Pour your peach mixture into the pre-baked pie crust and top with the oat mixture, spread it over the entire pie

Bake for 30 minutes at 365 degrees, check to see if it is browning too quickly, if so add a pie ring or use aluminum foil to cover the pie

Bake an additional 20 minutes and check for doneness. Let cool for 30 minutes or so and serve, I had some leftover Peach Ice Cream which made for a super WOW Peach factor!

This is one awesome peach pie...Beautiful. I can see why you decided not to use a 2-pie crust in the future. :-)

Holy Moly! That looks dynamite. It appears to not have a great deal of sugar, too. Gotta make one. LOVE IT!!

Hey, buy Bella Sue a Nylabone, my Lily will lay and chew for hours on one, especially when she was a pup.

Looks great Cheryl. Peaches are not in season here yet but hopefully we'll have some nice ones soon!

Am I behind on blogs, or what?
LOVE peach pie. It's one of my faves. Making a great pie crust is easy. Just don't overwork the dough. You want bits of "buttah" in there and keep the pastry cold. Ina Garten has a great recipe. I still keep commercial pie crusts in my freezer, for shortcuts. LOVE streusel toppings a lot and the cashews are a nice touch. I'd like mine with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, thank you.
