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.

    Lactaid is my best friend. I have spare pills in the car, in Hubby’s wallet, in my purse and desk. Can’t ever be too prepared! I have had their lactose free flavors and they’re quite tasty. I wish they had more than one a month though!

    I love the idea of using the cone method for ice cream cupcakes. I hadn’t thought of that. That strawberry down the middle of the cupcake is so perfect! I’m so glad you entered again!

    Those cupcakes look scrumptious! Oh, and you’ve gotta try Purely Decadent made with Coconut Milk Ice Cream! It’s rich and creamy, a lot like gelatto!

    I agree with you about the non-dairy ice creams available in stores. However, If you have an ice cream maker vegan chick-0-stick ice cream is unbelievably rich, creamy and delicious.

    Here is the recipe http://couldntbeparve.blogspot.com/2008/09/chick-o-stick-ice-cream_04.html

    Hey, these cupcakes sound awesome! I use to be Lactose Int., but I found the best cure ever & seriously have been L.I. cured for 7 years. I could not give up my dairy & use to take 3 Lactaid every time I ate.I heard about “Lactogen” on the radio on the way home from a trip. I would do anything to get rid of my L.I. so it was $90.00 at the time so I said what the heck I spent $200.00 a year on Lactaid. I was floored that it worked & 7 years later still no signs. I drink milk every morning, cheese everyday, & ice cream when ever. It retrains your body to except lactose, so for 42 days while you take it (a mix to drink with water) you have to stay away from all dairy & anything with dairy in it. I just went to the health food store during that time. I am sure you can find it on the web. Lactogen is the name

    This is my second post, it erased my first. But for all you suffering with Lactose Int. try Lactogen it really works I have been cured for going on 7 years now. It was only $90.00 when I tried it & I was spending $200 a year on Lactaid at the time. I now can drink milk every morning, & eat cheese every day & ice cream when ever. It is not an on going thing you take it once for 43 days & that is it.
