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!

    My grandmother’s peanut butter pie with a vanilla custard filling is the best pie ever.

  4. Jan says:

    The man across the street used to bring Pineapple Pie to all the functions my Mom would have. I resisted trying it… Boy what a mistake, it was DELICIOUS. He’s gone and so is his recipie… Would love a recipe if you have one…

  5. Chris says:

    My Granny Smith French Apple Pie looks a LOT like this pie…before you cut it, of course! My signature pie…the original recipe was clipped out of the local paper…then it was lost. As I tried to recover it from my scattered brain cells, I made it even better than the original! It’s the ONLY pie recipe I have that I do NOT share! I do, however, share the pie! I’ve even given it as a “thank you card” instead of the actual card! There is NOTHING like a phenomenal pie, IMO!!! My kids grew up on mostly birthday pie…because, well, plain ol’ birthday cake is boring by comparison. There were a few exceptions…but very very few! ;) Another feather in my cap…my son’s high school foods teacher asked for the banana cream pie recipe he made…and told him that, in all her 31 years of teaching, it was the first time she’d ever been impressed enough to ask for a recipe. Yep, there’s absolutely NOTHING better than a good pie!!! Yep, I would LOVE to have your new book!!!!!

  6. oh my gosh that pie looks absolutely incredible! YUMMMMMM!! you had me at crumble:)

  7. Vicky says:

    One of my favorites is the key lime pie recipe from Brown Eyed Baker. It’s so easy!

  24. Kelly K says:

    One of my coworkers makes THE BEST coconut pie. Sometimes, when she bakes one for her family, she bakes a second and brings it to work to share. You have to move fast, though. It’s always gone before lunchtime! Trust me, I learned the hard way.

  25. Sarah says:

    Definitely my mom’s classic apple pie, no sugar, homemade crust, super simple!

  26. My favorite pie isn’t really a pie per se…it’s a cheesecake that my mom makes every Thanksgiving- vanilla cheesecake with chocolate chips, I crave it all year!

  27. Kristin says:

    I actually found my favorite pie recipe on epicurious! It’s a tie between strawberry rhubarb and pumpkin, depending on the season of course. :-)

  28. Marie says:

    My favorite is my grandma’s apple pie.

  29. Kari says:

    My favorite pie is pumpkin. No special recipe but it has to be topped with real whipped cream.

  30. Greta says:

    Last summer I made my first pie: a simple rustic peach pie. I’ve since made a pie every month, but none has come close to the first.

  31. Nadia says:

    My fav pie(s!) are lemon chess pie, key lime, or salted caramel (insert fruit) pie! Although when pregnant, I ate strawberry rhubarb pie from one particular bakery every day for months 3-8 :-)

    My favourite pie…I think it would have to be a tie between key lime and strawberry rhubarb. Dorie Greenspan’s Florida pie is the best lime pie recipe, Ever. I’m still searching for the great strawberry rhubarb…:D

  36. Chelle says:

    My middle daughter makes a fabulous chocolate pie from scratch that is the best chocolate pie I’ve ever had. It’s made more special to me because this particular daughter doesn’t like to cook or bake other than this pie.

  37. Janet says:

    I love my mom’s apple cobbler

  38. 24road says:

    My favorite pie has always been lemon meringue!

  40. cindy says:

    My, My my favorite Pie would be Peanut Butter Pie. A friend ask me to make one, which I never had. I went on an internet search (before blogging) and came out with over 3 hundred versions, so I studied all of them and came up with the best one. And it was delicious! Thanks for the chance to win such a wonderful cookbook.

    Used to be Baker’s Square’s French Silk Pie but they are no longer in our area so I am trying to find a similar recipe. So we’ll just say a Chocolate Silk Pie and leave it at that!
