TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 45 min. + cooling YIELD:8 servings


  • Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)
  • 4 cups sliced peeled peaches
  • 2 tablespoons peach preserves
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 3 large egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cubed


  • 1. Line a 9-in. pie plate with pastry; trim and flute edge. In a large bowl, combine peaches and preserves. Transfer to pastry shell. In a small bowl, whisk the sugar, sour cream, egg yolks, flour and vanilla. Pour over peaches.
  • 2. Bake at 425° for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the flour, sugars, pecans and cinnamon. Cut in butter until crumbly; sprinkle over pie.
  • 3. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean and topping is golden brown. Cover edge with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary. Cool completely on a wire rack for 3 hours before serving. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 8 servings.

I used one whole egg and one egg yoke as I was running short on eggs and didn't have pecans. Know they would have made it even better. This was so good warm and still good cold.

"When I read this recipe on July 8, there were only 4 reviews. I made the pie mainly to break the tie (2 pro, 2 con). Now I see many more took the challenge, and I and my guests thought it was delicious. In my oven, it took less time to bake or the topping would have burned, and I used only a half cup of sugar because we don't like pies real sweet. But that is a personal preference. I'd still give it 5 stars."

"Most of us start out as novice bakers and as we grow and mature as such, we learn the small nuances in a recipe we read. Obviously the reviewers who called this recipe "slop" have not yet accomplished this skill. Please carefully read and reread each detail of every recipe you attempt to make. Those who unselfishly share their recipes with us do not deserve to be subjected to the scorn immature cooks and bakers sometimes heap upon them."

"I'm sure this would be a fantastic pie...if the cooking time was altered. Like the other comment, it turned out as slop. Which was disappointing as I made it for a birthday gift for my dad. Also, I used a deep dish pie, and there was still WAY too much of everything. I ended up throwing away half of the pecan crumble. I wonder if the ingredients weren't meant for two pies, as in hindsight that would make sense. I'm not too happy that I wasted all that time and money on ingredients for something that won't get eaten."

"Very good flavor, but it did not set up like the picture showed and I let it cool for over 3 hours before I refrigerated it overnight. It also didn't cook until the knife came out clean; it seems as if there is too much filling for even a deep-dish pie shell. I would make it again, but maybe split the ingredients between 2 regular pie shells and add some cornstarch to try to thicken it."
