Peach Crumble Pie


Make this peach crumble pie for your next summertime get together. The crunchy crumble topping mixed with the soft, sweet peaches makes for a heady dessert that no one can resist.


For the Crust

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled), plus more for rolling

  • ½ teaspoon fine salt

  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

For the Filling

  • 3 pounds peaches, halved, pitted, and cut into ½-inch slices (8 cups)

  • 2 tablespoons light-brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

For the Crumble

  • cup packed light-brown sugar

  • cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)

  • cup old-fashioned rolled oats

  • 12 tablespoons (1 ½ sticks) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces


  1. Make crust: In a food processor, pulse flour, salt, and granulated sugar until combined. Add butter; pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal, with a few pea-size pieces of butter remaining. Sprinkle with 6 tablespoons ice water. Pulse until dough is crumbly but holds together when squeezed (if necessary, add up to 2 tablespoons ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time); do not overmix. Form two disks with dough, wrap tightly in plastic, and refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour (or up to overnight).

  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees with rack in the bottom of the oven. Lightly flour a rolling pin and work surface and roll out one disk of dough to a 12-inch round. Reserve remaining dough for another use. Place in a 9-inch pie plate and trim with kitchen scissors. Fold overhang under, and crimp edges. Transfer to refrigerator while making filling. Make filling: In a large bowl, toss together peaches, brown sugar, and flour until combined. Make crumble: In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, flour, and oats; using your hands or a pastry cutter, work in butter until large clumps form.

  3. Transfer peach filling to pie shell, then sprinkle crumble evenly over top. Place pie on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until juices are bubbling and topping is golden, 1 hour 30 minutes to 1 hour 45 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack 1 1/2 hours before serving.
