How to Make a Homemade Crumble Topped Peach Pie from Scratch
I love the simplicity of this recipe. It never fails to amaze me how wonderful the flavor is.
And you get that flavor with just a few simple ingredients and just minutes spent in the kitchen.
Prep time is right around five minutes (add another five if making your own crust). And bake time clocks in right around forty-five minutes.
The equipment you need is a couple mixing bowls and a 9″ pie pan.

No need for a long ingredient list to make yourself a flavor packed crumble top peach pie. In fact, there’s a good chance you have everything you need on hand already.
Note: This recipe works great with a premade bottom crust, but if you want to make your own, you will find multiple options further below.
- Peaches (fresh, canned, or frozen)
- Powdered Sugar
- All-Purpose Flour
Crumble Top Ingredients
- All-Purpose Flour
- Brown Sugar
Peaches: I love using fresh peaches for this pie, but you can also use frozen or canned peaches if that’s all you have available. Make sure to drain off excess liquid when using canned or frozen peaches. Make sure to use sliced peaches too!
Powdered Sugar: Powdered sugar provides the perfect amount of sweetness while aiding in the thickness of our filling.
Flour: This is my preferred thickener. It produces a classic filling texture but you can opt for an alternative thickener such as cornstarch or tapioca flour if desired.
Brown Sugar: This is a very important part of producing a great flavored and textured crumble top. Make sure to pack your brown sugar when measuring. You can use light or dark brown sugar, though I usually use light brown sugar.
Flour for Topping: I do not recommend using a flour alternative in your topping. Flour produces an ideal crumbly texture.
