Peach Cherry Pie with Crumb Topping

I found out a couple weeks ago that the number one thing my mom craved when she was pregnant with me was peaches – guess I’ve loved them since day 1! Then growing up, we had a peach tree in our back yard. I remember being very young and eating fresh juicy peaches off of our tree.

When looking through my blog, I haven’t posted many peach recipes. I think that’s because I prefer to just eat them straight up. Why mess with them by baking them?!? But a couple weeks ago my eyes were bigger than my stomach. I found myself up to my elbows in fresh ripe peaches. I just couldn’t eat them fast enough.

So I started searching for a recipe to help use up my bounty of peaches. First I stumbled upon this recipe for a peach-cherry galette. As I mentioned before, I’m not a huge fan of raw cherries. While I was browsing the internet, this recipe for a crumb topped fruit pie also caught my eye.

I decided to combine these two recipes into one amazingly delicious pie. I can definitely see myself making this pie again with a whole variety of fruit fillings. If you can dream up a combination of fruits, I’m sure it would work in this recipe.

I shared this pie with Hubby’s family on a recent weekend trip to Newport. Everyone enjoyed the pie, especially nuked for 30 seconds with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream on top.

    Yum! I love rhubarb but not sure I have had it in jam form. I bet this is beyond delicious! Although to be honest my favorite way to enjoy rhubarb is raw with just a little bit of a salt…yum!

    Have you ever tried making sugar free jelly or jam before?

    I have not made sugar free jam. This is only the second jam I’ve ever made!

    I make raspberry-rhubarb jam every year, it is my absolute favorite jam!! Looking over your recipe I do not find any pectin in it. Just wondered if this was error, I am always looking for new recipes to try. the cardamon is something I have never used in my jams so I thought I would give it a try. Thanks

      Nope, no pectin in this recipe. The raspberries have enough naturally.
