This is the 2nd year I am using this recipe. I use this method to make cobblers so I don't have the added calories of pie crusts. At baking time, I put the frozen peach filling in a crustless greased pie plate and then I prepare a crumb topping of 1/2 cup each of oatmeal, whole wheat flour, and sugar in a food processor and add 1/4 cup( half stick) butter, and a teaspoon of cinnamon. Process until crumbly; spread over filling. Sometimes I add some pecan flour for some of the flour in the topping.
I made these this summer. I put the filling into pie crusts before freezing. I bought cheap throw-away foil pans just for making pies for the freezer this year. The only thing I did was forget the butter, still tasted great though. I did bake 20-30 minutes more, I just kept poking a knife in the center to test the temperature in the middle of the pie. I was happy to have these in the freezer. I was able to make dessert without standing around.
This turned out lousy for me. :( It seemed like a brilliant idea, but unfortunately never worked for me. The crust was nice and brown and the filling was runny and cold despite leaving it in for an extra 20 minutes.
Made this last night and went exactly by the instuctions. Had a bit left so I threw together a very small cobbler and it tasted AWSOME! I know my pies will taste wonderful when I bake them and I am a peach finatic! Thanks so much for the recipe! I will be using it from now on.
Made this early last month, exactly as written. Pulled one out this past weekend when we had guests over. AWESOME!! Plan on doing many of these next year. So easy. Have passed it on to many of my friends. Love it. Thanks for posting!!
I've used this recipe several times! My next door neighbor brings over large grocery bags of peaches from her tree..."time to make pies1" I do skip the peeling step, we like the skins on, but keep the rest of the recipe the same. Every pie has come out great, especially nice when baked in the winter...! Thank you so much for sharing!!!!
What a great idea very easy to do and the end result is wonderful. I love the addition of the cinnamon and nutmeg. And now I have three other pies in my freezer. Thanks for posting this recipe.
