This is one of the Recipezaar recipes I 'adopted' a couple of years ago. After receiving a review, I decided to try the pie myself, and WOW,it's delicious! I prepared a homemade pie shell using real butter, and used a 1 lb. bag of frozen peaches. (Thawed and well-drained.) A heavenly aroma filled the whole house as the pie was baking, and the family and I could hardly wait for it to cool down to try a slice! Do try this; you won't be disappointed!
- Slice peaches and place in the pie shell.
- Sprinkle with 1/2 cup sugar and nutmeg.
- Beat egg and cream together and pour over peaches.
- Mix together brown sugar, butter and flour until crumbly (don't overmix).
- Sprinkle crumb mixture over peaches.
- Bake at 425 degrees for about 30 to 35 minutes, or until lightly browned.
- Serve slightly warm, either alone or topped with ice cream, whipped topping or sour cream.
Loved the flavor. Great pie - and easy!
Sorry, Truebrit, but this just didn't work for me. I found that the custard really was rather dry..maybe it would be better doubled. I'll try that next time as I really like a custard peach pie.
