If you are making your pie crusts grab the recipe shared earlier to my favorite pie crust recipe. Remember to grab those baking supplies too.
You’ll add your 5 cups peaches into a big mixing bowl. Next, add in 2 tsp. lemon juice, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup all-purpose flour and 1 tsp. cinnamon. Mix all these together.
Set mixing bowl to the side and mix up the crumb topping.
In another mixing bowl. Add 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp. cinnamon, 3/4 cup flour, and cut in with a pastry cutter 1/3 cup butter.
Pour your peach mixture into your pie shell. Next, it’s ready for your crumb topping.
Completely cover your peaches with crumb topping.
Then set your pie onto a tin foil-covered baking sheet. Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Then turn down the oven t0 375 degrees and finish baking about 40-60 minutes depending on oven/altitude. After 30 minutes you may need to tent the top with foil to prevent pie shell from getting burnt.
When you take your peach pie out of the oven let it cool. Or if you are like us, let it cool just a little and serve. When it cools it will be firm.
Peach pies are always well topped with vanilla ice cream or whip cream.
