Reviews for Streusel Peach Pie
"Everyone at work loved this and asked for the recipe."
"Pie was good. As others said, the center of my crust did not completely bake. Think I will try a graham cracker or pecan crust next time:)"
"great recipe my family enjoy it a lot"
"I prebaked the pie crust for fifteen minutes and it was still a bit raw in the center. Next time I'll bake it until it's light brown, then add the filling and topping, covering the edges to prevent them from burning. The reason being that the filling is very watery and makes the crust soggy and doughy. I will also add a teaspoon of cornstarch to the flour mixture, hoping it thickens the filling a bit. Delicious otherwise. My mother used to make a similar pie recipe."
"I've never made a peach pie before....it is CUSTOMARY to put an egg in the filling ? I certainly never do with cherry or apple pies. Just wondering."
