Blog Tour: Vintage Baby Knits
One of a kind

Deep dish peach pie

Care to join me for some breakfast?


Having leftover dessert for breakfast is one of my favorite things.  This pie was killer both last night and this morning.  In fact, Fatty said it was maybe my best pie ever.  Uh huh.  If you have peaches like me, I highly recommend you do this, too.

Make your favorite pie crust, or buy one - whichever you prefer.  Roll it out into a deep dish pie pan.  My pan is 9" wide and at least 2" deep.  Take sliced peaches (I used about 6 cups) and mix them with a 1 tsp. lemon juice, 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon, 3/4 cup sugar and 3 tbsp. flour.  Dump the peaches into the pie pan.  Now make the topping - 1 cup flour, 2/3 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup cold butter mixed together until it's crumbly.  Sprinkle on top.  Cover the edges of your pie with a strip of aluminium foil (to prevent burning) and bake at 425 degrees for at least 45 minutes.  The time will vary depending on how deep your pie is and the diameter of your pan. My pie took over an hour, but I started checking at 40 minutes.  You are looking for a nicely browned top and bubbling juices.  Watch it towards the end to make sure the top isn't getting too brown.  If it is, cover it with foil.  Best served warm.  And then still good cold with a nice cup of coffee the next morning.

A big thank you to everyone for the anniversary wishes.  One part of me is amazed that it has been 13 years - it seems like we just met a few years ago!  Thank you, too, for the nice words on last Friday's post.  I was feeling pretty low and you guys really made me feel so much better.  So much better that I got motivated and managed to meet my deadline early - hooray!

Just a reminder that if you would like a chance to win Vintage Baby Knits, you need to comment on yesterday's post before 12 noon EST tomorrow.  You can also visit STC Craft for a chance to win one of three copies that they are giving away.

Back here soon.  Hopefully with something made out of fabric.

A fruit-based pie with a crumble topping can't be beat. I have mine with a cup of hot tea.


ignore my email...i know have the recipe and plenty of peaches! That looks yummy.


That pie looks amazing. I made peach crisp the other day...delicious.


I would LOVE to join you! That pie looks absolutely brilliant...


I just ate leftover strawberry rhubarb crisp for breakfast...the simple joy of being a mom and controlling the leftovers!


I want your tableclothe!!!

Lecia/A Day that is Dessert

I'll make this as soon as our peaches are ripe! They're my favorite summer fruit.


The kids and I have been making a pie a week-- this might be next week's! thanks.


Lucky for me, I picked up an entire basket of peaches at the farmer's market this weekend. I had planned to make a pie, and this recipe sounds tasty!


yum, that looks fantastic!


That sounds and looks amazing!


i'm so with you about dessert for breakfast -- one of my favorite things about birthdays is cake the next morning!!

That tablecloth is the bomb. Is it Orla Kiely?


Yum, that looks really good. I love eating dessert for breakfast too!


yes, please.

I 'was' a peach pie lover until my local orchard lady suggested that nectarine pie is even better - and you know what - she was right, I am a convert. #1, you don't have to skin the nectarines.............
Having said that, I am now the proud owner of four ripe MA hilltown peaches and a quart of low bush wild blueberries from Granville, MA.
Actually I've been thinking Fresh blueberry pie with peaches too.


mmm, that looks DELICIOUS!

we're having a weird growing season here, spring was too cold. so i don't think the trees in our back yard will produce this year. but pretty soon we should have some other semi-local ones (from the other side of the state), and i'm SO gonna try this!!


It is delightful how nonchalant you are about desert for breakfast. I'm going to adopt that attitude myself. Thank you for the inspiration!

julie green

mmm. yum. must make one for myself. and maybe i'll share with my family. MAYBE.


Yum! I love dessert for breakfast too.

Mmmm... can you send that to us for dinner? I missed your giveaway... bummer. You're eating on the fabric that is our shower curtain... I love Target. I'm totally gonna try this recipe. Have a great weekend!


Bring on peach season in the southern hemisphere


that sounds sooooo good! I hope they have peaches at the farmers market in the morning!


I made your pie last night with some peaches I picked up at the veggie stand down the road. It was wonderful for dessert and even better this morning for breakfast. I'm so glad to know there are others who like pie in the morning too!


I love apple pie for breakfast :) mmmmmm!

Fellow Unraveller here to say hello!


Dessert for any meal is yummy!! My husband gets upset when I do it though hehe! I might have to make this pie.. sounds very yum :)

Gretchen Skovron

oh yum!! Love it and love the new banner on the blog.


god, i love this time of year with all its fruit. and in pie is the best. have you tried peach cream pie yet? yummmm


Made this pie tonight with farmer's market peaches! Yum! Love the crumb topping. I will be making this again! Just one question, did you bake the crust first, then add the peaches? The bottom crust on the one I baked was a little soggy (but still good!! ;) ).



I am so going to make this! Peaches are sooo good right now. I will be running to the Farmer's Market and getting myself a Peck to do this! Thanks! I can't wait!


Oh, my gosh -- I made your recipe minus the pie crust. Everyone loved it! Thanks for the inspiration.


that sounds fantastic. i just cannot get enough of the fruit desserts this summer and i have been wanting a good peach pie to add to the repertoire!
glad things are calming down over there. i was nodding throughout that post... i feel that same sense of ohmyword, time is going SO fast, and it can be paralyzing! i hope we can both squeeze all the goodness out of the rest of this season!
