Peach Praline Pie
There are so many ways to enjoy fresh peaches. This pie, with its praline topping, is one of the best. Good peaches contain lots of juice, so a deep-dish pie pan is good for this recipe. If you don't have one, just make sure the pastry edges are crimped well and have a standing rim.
- Preheat oven to 450°F.
- In a medium bowl, stir together the 1/4 cup flour and 2/3 cup sugar until thoroughy mixed. Add the sliced peaches and lemon juice, and stir to combine. Set aside at room temperature while preparing the topping.
- Prepare the praline topping by combining the brown sugar and 1/4 cup flour. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender until mixture has a crumbly texture. Stir in the chopped pecans. Sprinkle one-third of this mixture in the bottom of the unbaked pie shell.
- Give the peach mixture a good stir and pour into the pie shell over praline mixture. Sprinkle remaining praline mixture evenly over peaches.
- Bake for at 450°F for 10 minutes. Lower heat to 350°F and bake an additional 30 to 35 minutes until topping is golden brown. Delicious served warm, with or without vanilla ice cream.
