Peach Crumble Pie

 photo Peachpie-2_zps17b187fd.jpgLast Saturday, I finally tackled one of my fears, and baked my first pie.  I don't know why but making pie has always seemed so intimidating to me.  I used up the rest of our peaches and found a recipe from none other then Martha Stewart, for Peach Crumble Pie.  It really wasn't as difficult as I had expected, but I still could use some practice making the crust.  Bryce was a big fan, and declared it as one of his favorite desserts that I've ever made.  Here is the recipe below:

INGREDIENTS

FOR THE CRUST:

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled), plus more for rolling
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine salt
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

FOR THE FILLING:

  • 3 pounds peaches, halved, pitted, and cut into 1/2-inch slices (8 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons light-brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

FOR THE CRUMBLE:

  • 1/3 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  • 1/3 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces


DIRECTIONS

  1. STEP 1

    Make crust: In a food processor, pulse flour, salt, and granulated sugar until combined. Add butter; pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal, with a few pea-size pieces of butter remaining. Sprinkle with 3 tablespoons ice water. Pulse until dough is crumbly but holds together when squeezed (if necessary, add up to 2 tablespoons ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time); do not overmix. Form dough into a disk, wrap tightly in plastic, and refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour (or up to overnight).
  2. STEP 2

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly flour a rolling pin and work surface and roll out dough to a 12-inch round. Place in a 9-inch pie plate, fold overhang under, and crimp edges. Make filling: In a large bowl, toss together peachesbrown sugar, and flour until combined. Make crumble: In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, flour, and oats; using your hands, work in butter until large clumps form.
  3. STEP 3

    Transfer peach filling to pie shell, then sprinkle crumble evenly over top. Place pie on a rimmed baking sheet and bake until juices are bubbling and topping is golden, 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack 1 1/2 hours before serving.
