Salted Caramel Peach Crumble Pie

It’s giveaway time!

As most of you know my second cookbook, Not-So-Humble Pie, was recently released, and to celebrate I am going to give away two copies! I am really proud of this book, and I must thank my publisher for the AMAZING work they did! This book is in full color and it has lots of pretty photographs (at least I think they are since I took them). Because I love you, and I want you to get as many chances to win as possible, I am offering you three ways to win! You do not have to jump through too many hoops, just do the following:

To enter –

First, comment below and tell me about your favorite pie recipe.  Is it your grandmother’s apple pie? Maybe it is a recipe you clipped from the local paper?  Whatever it is, tell me about it.  Inquiring minds want to know!

Second, Tweet about this giveaway with a link back to this post so your followers can enter too, then post a link to that tweet in the comments below.  Tweet whatever you like, and if you want to mention me (which would be lovely) my Twitter handle is @BakingBlog.

Finally, tell your friends on Facebook by sharing a link to this entry.  Just post a link back here so I can see you did.

The giveaway ends July 1st, 2012 at 11 pm CST.   The winner will be selected at random and notified via email (so be sure to use a valid email address when commenting).   In the event that the same person wins both books (with multiple entries it could happen) a second winner will be selected.  Limit 3 (three) entries per person. Open to residents of the US and Canada only (sorry, shipping is darn expensive!). I am providing the books from my own personal supply.

What pie cookbook giveaway would be complete without a pie recipe? This recipe is not in my latest book, this is an all new creation! Summer is here and that means the peaches are back at the market. If you have been reading for a while you know that I love peaches, so when they are in season I buy up as many as I can. For this pie I combined a little salted caramel sauce into the filling to add buttery richness. Caramel and peaches are beaches and margaritas, they are made for each other, so the addition was a no-brainer. Rather than a typical pastry crust for the topping I decided on a buttery crumble. It adds a touch of rustic charm to this somewhat sophisticated pie. I like this pie best with no adornment, but you could serve it with ice cream, or whipped cream if you wanted to doll it up. Personally, I don’t need the frills. It is just fine the way it is!

Salted Caramel Peach Crumble Pie   Yield 1 9-inch pie

For the crust:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon packed light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
6 tablespoons butter, cubed and chilled
3-5 tablespoons ice cold water

For the crumble:
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup butter, cubed and chilled

For the filling:
5 medium peaches, peeled, stone removed, and sliced
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup salted caramel (I used this recipe)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon cardamom

Salted caramel sauce, for garnish.


Begin by preparing the crust.

In a large bowl combine the flour, brown sugar, and salt. Whisk to combine then add the vegetable shortening and rub it in with your fingers until it completely coats the flour.

Add the cubed butter and, still using your fingers, rub it in until the mixture looks like coarse sand and no large pieces of butter remain.

Add the water, a tablespoons at a time, until the mixture forms a shaggy ball. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured works surface and press the dough into a disk. Flatten the dough, fold it in half, and flatten it again. Repeat this process 4 times, then wrap the dough in plastic and chill for 1 hour.

Once chilled pull the dough out of the refrigerator and let stand for 5 minutes to warm up. Roll out on a lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thick, about a 12-inch circle, turning the dough often to make sure it does not stick. Dust the surface with additional flour if needed.

Press the dough into a 9-inch pie plate and trim the dough to 1/2-inch of the plates edge. Tuck the dough under and crimp the edges. Cover with plastic and chill until ready to fill and bake.

Next, prepare the crumble.

In a medium bowl combine the flour, sugar, and salt. Add the butter and rub it into the flour mixture with your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse sand. Cover and chill for 30 minutes before using.

Now, prepare the peach filling.

In a medium bowl combine the sliced peaches, cornstarch, salted caramel sauce, vanilla, cinnamon, and cardamom. Gently toss to coat, then allow to stand for at least 10 minutes at room temperature.

Heat the oven to 425 F.

To assemble the pie fill the pastry crust with the peach filling, then evenly spread the crumble over the top. Bake for 12 minutes, then reduce the heat to 350 F and bake for 45 to 55 more minutes, or until the crumble is deeply golden brown and the filling is bubbling all over. Allow to cool to room temperature before serving.

Enjoy with a drizzle of salted caramel sauce!

  1. this is stunning!

    my favorite pie was always my mom’s chess pie – cool, creamy and super sweet!

  2. Stephanie M says:

    Congratulations on the new book. I added it to my amazon wish list. I posted on Facebook about this recipe. https://www.facebook.com/stephanie.mcquown

  3. Mike says:

    My favorite pie would be my grandmother’s pecan pie -sweet and creamy filling and a flaky crust that melted in your mouth.

    I’d post a link on my Facebook page, but I’d rather not use my real name plus my profile is private. Oh well. I liked you just now, though, even though I subscribe to the RSS feed in my reader.

  4. Carlene says:

    Peach, peach, peach of any kind! I was thrilled to get this one! :D I’m not a tweeter, so I’m hoping this and a FB link will do for my entry into the contest. Congrats on the new cookbook!! I’ll be looking for it … assuming I don’t win one! ;)

  5. Jennifer says:

    This looks amazing! I can’t wait to try it out. My favorite pie is a blackberry and blueberry pie. I love the mix of berries.

  6. I don’t know if I can think of just one pie recipe!!! Ack. In the summer my favorite is definitely key lime, even though I love fruit pie. Citrus is just so summery to me. I use the same recipe we used when I worked as a pastry chef at a seafood restaurant. I’ll probably post it soon. But in the winter I go ga ga for chocolate chip bourbon pecan pie. Sigh.

    Most contests do separate comments for each entry. Now I’m realizing you want one comment with each step. My bad! So feel free to delete this, just know I took the steps!


  8. Molly says:

    I love pecan pie but have never had great success when baking one. I did a nice Concord grape pie last September which was met with rave reviews, though.

  9. Sara says:

    This pie looks amazing! Caramel and peaches, I can’t wait. I think my favorite is still lemon meringue pie though. Thanks for the giveaway, and congratulations!

  10. Kay says:

    My current fav pie is the lovely mini pie bites you posted two weeke ago. My favorite all time pie is my aunt’s no frills apply pie.

  11. Natalie says:

    Kelly!! I saw this pie post first on instagram… Oh man.. it IS just lovely!! My favorite pie has got to be pumpkin. It reminds me of Halloween & Thanksgiving & Birthdays. One year when I was a kid, pumpkin pie is what I wanted as my birthday cake. It’s just SO GOOD! I see this pie in my future. The peaches are plentiful at my farmer’s market! :-D

  12. Alyse says:

    My very, very favorite pie is fresh strawberry pie, piled way up high with juicy, red strawberries. It doesn’t need anything else- ok, maybe a glass of iced tea to go with it.

  13. Whewy, this pie looks and sounds amazing! My mouth is currently watering :) Pinned, can’t wait to try it out!

  14. Billie says:

    Pumpkin pie is my favorite, but I can’t wait to try your peach pie!

  15. Karen Blair says:

    My favorite recipe is not a recipe, I just add sugar, cinnamon, and a little bit of flour and butter, it’s yummy every time!

  16. Lauren says:

    Omg that looks so good! I’m not actually big on pie…. I can’t even remember the last time I made one! I do love apple though. With lightly sweetend whipped cream on top.

  17. Meghan says:

    I love, love, love the banana creme pie recipe that I have from Dorie Greenspan. Yum! Thanks for the chance to win.

  19. My husband has been begging for me to make a dessert made with salted caramel. I think this pie sounds like a great idea. My favorite is apple pie with the crumb topping. mmm. I love a good crumb topping! Congrats on the new cookbook!

  20. Emily C. says:

    My Mom’s cherry pie. We had a cherry tree in our front yard growing up and always had an abundance of cherries to turn in to pie. It is nearly impossible for me to find fresh sour cherries to recreate the pie.

  21. Mary says:

    My favorite pie is homemade from scratch chocolate meringue. Your peach pie looks delicious…..

  22. Terri says:

    My favorite pie recipe is for apple pie.

    My husband’s grandmother’s Buttermilk Pie recipe is a requested dessert for me to prepare every Christmas. It’s basically a chess pie that is so rich & delicious. His grandmother had passed away several years before I met my husband but I feel connected to her since I have made her recipe yearly for the past twenty years & it brings back sweet memories for my husband, his brother & their dad.

  30. Sarah Zink says:

    My favorite pie is my homemade rhubarb pie, yum!

  31. Marthie Ramos says:

    Your pie looks delicious and what a lovely cookbook!
    My favorite pie is a super light and tall coconut cream from a long closed down restaurant in So. Cal. called Peter, Paul and Pie. I make a tart cherry pie that I love for a runner up with many others close behind. Pie is amazing, even for breakfast!

  32. Marthie Ramos says:

    also, posted on Facebook…

  33. Tracy J. says:

    I love homemade from scratch apple pie! When my mom or I make the recipe I grew up with….mmm sooo good!!!

    I wanna win! Yummy looking cookbook! @BakingBlog

  36. Libbi says:

    my favourite pie is my great aunt mary’s rhubarb pie. i don’t even think that there’s a recipe on file in the family. she passed away this last november and had a stroke/heart attack this time last year. so she hasn’t made that pie in a long time and it’s been even longer since i last got to have a slice. i miss that pie.

  37. Lisa says:

    I desperately want your evil book. Salted caramel with peaches is brilliant. I heart you :)

  38. Lisa says:

    I tweeted the giveaway..and my favorite pie? That’s like asking me to choose my favorite child ;)

  39. Ginger says:

    My favorite pie is one my brother brought to Thanksgiving one year. It was a ginger pear pie with a crumble top. Soooo good! I’ll be looking forward to your cookbook :-)

  40. Riley says:

    I’ll eat anything with salted caramel. And, of course, a crumbly topping. This looks like the Percy dessert for me!

  41. Pauline says:

    My favourite pie recipe has to be my mom”s strawberry rhubarb pie. We used to grow rhubarb in our backyard and every summer she’d make this pie with Ontario strawberries and our rhubarb. I remember one year the pie was so good my brother and I simply ate it straight out of the pie dish.

  42. A baker I am not! But my favorite pie recipe is my sister-in-law’s apple pie. It’s amazing. But this one looks amazing too. I may just have to give this one a try!

  43. Kate says:

    Lattice tipped blackberry pie made with the freshest berries – picked just hours before! So plump and juicy with a delicious butter crust.

  44. TC says:

    Sweet potato pie! It is my favorite. My sister will usually buy me one from a great pie place, one town over, for my birthdays. Sometimes, she’ll get them for me for Thanksgiving too. :)

  45. HJ says:

    My hubby love blackberry pie, so I bake it whenever I think of it!!!

  46. Ruta says:

    My favorite pie recipe is one for Key Lime Pie. The cookbook it is found in is so marked up from the changes I have made over time to improve it until it’s perfect!
