    HeatherFeather's Note:

    I saw this scrumptious pie demonstrated on QVC. It was one of Bob Bowersox's recipes. If the whole idea of starting with a "from scratch" pie shell intimidates you, then you certainly may substitute a purchased pie shell and prebake it according to the package directions, then proceed with the rest of the instructions. Prep time does not include the 30 minutes of chilling time for the pastry crust.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    2. 2
      For the crust, combine very cold butter pieces with shortening, flour and salt in a large bowl.
    3. 3
      Using a pastry blender or two knives, mix until pea-sized crumbs are formed.
    4. 4
      Add 1 Tbsp of the ice cold water and mix, using a fork, then add another Tbsp of the water, and mix with the fork- do this until the dough forms into a mass (you may not need all of the water).
    5. 5
      Don't add too much water or it will get gluey.
    6. 6
      Wrap in plastic wrap and chill in fridge for 30 minutes.
    7. 7
      Roll out dough on a floured surface to 1/4" thickness.
    8. 8
      Line an UNGREASED 9" pie plate with the pastry, trimming excess and crimping edges.
    9. 9
      Line crust with a circle of wax paper, then pour raw rice or beans into the shell.
    10. 10
      Bake in a preheated 350 F oven until the crust turns golden brown, about 15 minutes.
    11. 11
      Let cool, removing the rice and paper, and set aside.
    12. 12
      Once pastry has cooled, preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
    13. 13
      For the filling,set whole peaches into a bowl of cold water to cover.
    14. 14
      Set this bowl near the stove.
    15. 15
      Remove peaches from the water using a slotted spoon, saving the bowl of water, and set the peaches onto a paper towel-lined plate.
    16. 16
      Fill a large saucepan with water- one big enough to hold the peaches.
    17. 17
      Bring water to a boil, then drop in the peaches briefly, about 30 seconds- just to blanch them.
    18. 18
      Immediately remove them using a slotted spoon and put them back into the bowl of cold water.
    19. 19
      This will help make peeling the peaches easier (you can skip the blanching step if you wish and just peel the peaches with a paring knife).
    20. 20
      Once the peaches are cool enough to handle, remove the skins (stubborn bits can be removed with a paring knife).
    21. 21
      Cut peaches into halves, discard pits, then slice peaches and put into a large mixing bowl.
    22. 22
      Add sugar, almond extract, and cornstarch, stirring to coat.
    23. 23
      Pour the filling into the cooled pie shell.
    24. 24
      Make the topping by first melting the butter over low heat in a small pan.
    25. 25
      Once the butter melts, add the sugar, flour, salt, and cinnamon and stir until crumbly.
    26. 26
      Immediately remove from the heat and mound the topping over the peaches.
    27. 27
      Place pie plate onto a rimmed cookie sheet, then pop the whole thing into the oven, preheated to 375 F, and bake until the top is golden brown and the filling is bubbling around the edges, about 60-70 minutes.
    28. 28
      Check often to make sure the topping isn't getting too dark- if it does, place a tent of foil over it.
    29. 29
      Let cool on a wire rack.

      Heather TY to you and to QVC Bob. Don't let the steps intimidate you. I made my own homemade crust and used frozen peaches. The rest is a breeze. I've had Crumb topped Apple and Cherry Pies but never Peach. This is beyond a doubt the best baked pie I'm made in a long time and I bake alot!!!

      This pie is tasty, but gets soggy if not eaten the first day. Very good warm with vanilla ice cream!

      Good pie. Next time I would use chopped pecans in the topping.
