What’s a girl to do when she picks a BUNCH of fresh peaches in the summer? Well THIS girl likes to make delicious things with the “fruits of her labor”. I’ve canned them, and have used fresh peaches to make jam, cobblers, galettes, ice cream, turnovers, peach pies, smoothies, and crisps. It’s amazing how many delicious items you can make with this seasonal fruit.

Today I want to share with you a scrumptious recipe for Dutch Crumb Peach Pie. We love apple pies made this way, so I thought it would also be yummy using peach filling. I combined two different recipes from an OLD cookbook I received when I got married (43 years ago), and this delicious pie is the result.

Prepare The Peach Pie Filling

Making the filling for this Dutch Crumb Peach Pie is really quite easy! First, peel the peaches, and then carefully slice them in half, and remove the pit. Cut the peaches into slices, about ½” wide. Place the peach slices into a large mixing bowl.

Add granulated sugar, flour, cinnamon and freshly squeezed lemon juice to the peach slices in the bowl. Stir gently, to fully combine these ingredients. When done, set the bowl aside until later. This is your pie filling.

Make The Streusel Topping

Now it’s time to make the simple, buttery streusel topping. The streusel is what turns this pie from a plain peach pie into a Dutch crumb peach pie! Here’s how to make the crumbly pie topping.

Place flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and chopped pecans into a medium-sized mixing bowl. Cut VERY COLD butter into chunks and add them to the bowl. Use a pastry blender (or two forks) to cut the butter into the topping ingredients. Once done, the butter should be reduced to about the size of peas. Set the streusel topping aside.

Ready To Assemble The Dutch Crumb Peach Pie

Okay… now get that pie crust prepared! You can use whatever deep dish 9″ pie crust is convenient for you. That would include a homemade pie crust (that’s what I use), or a store-bought frozen (but thawed) pie crust, or refrigerated pie crust dough.

Crimp the edges of your pie crust, then gently prick the bottom and sides of the dough with the tines (the tips) of a fork (as shown below). The pie dough is pricked so it doesn’t puff up with large air pockets while baking.

The pie crust has been prepared for the pie filling.

Pour the peach pie filling into the prepared pie crust, making sure it is spread evenly. Add the streusel topping, a little at a time until the entire surface of the peach filling is covered. I like to mound it up in the middle of the pie (like a dome). Use all the topping.

TIP: I usually cup my hand around the edge of the crust so the topping doesn’t go all over the place as I add it! That helps to hold it onto the surface of the pie.

Bake The Dutch Crumb Peach Pie

Bake the Dutch Crumb Peach Pie on the middle rack of a preheated 425°F. oven. I typically place a sheet of aluminum foil underneath the pie, in case the filling bubbles over. This ensures you won’t have a messy oven when done!

Bake the Dutch Crumb Peach Pie for approximately 40 minutes, or a few minutes more, depending on your oven. The pie is done when the streusel topping and crust are golden brown, and the filling is bubbly around the edges. Transfer the pie to a wire rack to cool for about 10-15 minutes before slicing. When ready to serve, slice the pie into 8 wedges, serve and enjoy!

This pie is wonderful served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, but is also yummy served at room temperature! In the 2nd photo below you can see my regular peach pie, and a Dutch Crumb Peach pie, side by side. YUMMO!

  1. I made this wonderful recipe with a few changes.
    I used 1/2 cup flour and 1/2 cup oatmeal in the topping.
