Fresh butter, brown sugar and pecans melt down into the peach chunks to create one of the most delicious crumble toppings ever - and that is saying a lot!
I tried a new technique for this pie as well - cutting the peaches into chunks rather than slices, and boy oh boy, does it make a difference! Each piece baked up tender and even - no mushy spots anywhere in this pie!
I usually pick up a few extras "just in case" - and they work perfectly for popping on top of a scoop of fresh vanilla ice cream - YUM!
I chill for four to eight hours after taking out of the oven, this will give your filling time to set up and hold its shape when you serve.
There was a rumor circulating that I had cut this beautiful pie, and everyone is running towards the deck now - so you'll need to excuse me so that we can enjoy a piece of summertime!
