I've had a few fresh, local peaches in the fridge leftover from canning last week, so today I decided to make a pie ('cause who doesn't like pie?!). However, I've been craving something sweet with a crunchy top, so instead of a top crust, I opted for a streusel topping. It. Was. Yummy!
Here's the recipe:
(makes 8 servings - or 1 if you're not willing to share LOL)
10-12 fresh peaches, peeled, pitted, and sliced
1/2 c flour
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c butter, divided
1 pastry for a 9" single crust pie (I used a Pillsbury prepared crust because I had one on hand)
1/2 c brown sugar, packed
1/2 c rolled oats
1 t cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
To make the pie filling: In a medium bowl, gently mix together peaches, flour, and sugar. Set aside.
To make the streusel topping: In a small bowl, melt 1/4 c butter. Add brown sugar, oats, and cinnamon. Mix with a fork until well-combined. Set aside.
Gently place pastry in a 9" pie plate and finish the edge to your liking. Scoop the pie filling into the crust and dot the surface of the filling with the remaining 1/4 c butter.
Top the pie with the streusel.
Bake for 45 minutes or until topping is a light golden brown.
