Salted Caramel Peach Crumble Pie

It’s giveaway time!

As most of you know my second cookbook, Not-So-Humble Pie, was recently released, and to celebrate I am going to give away two copies! I am really proud of this book, and I must thank my publisher for the AMAZING work they did! This book is in full color and it has lots of pretty photographs (at least I think they are since I took them). Because I love you, and I want you to get as many chances to win as possible, I am offering you three ways to win! You do not have to jump through too many hoops, just do the following:

To enter –

First, comment below and tell me about your favorite pie recipe.  Is it your grandmother’s apple pie? Maybe it is a recipe you clipped from the local paper?  Whatever it is, tell me about it.  Inquiring minds want to know!

Second, Tweet about this giveaway with a link back to this post so your followers can enter too, then post a link to that tweet in the comments below.  Tweet whatever you like, and if you want to mention me (which would be lovely) my Twitter handle is @BakingBlog.

Finally, tell your friends on Facebook by sharing a link to this entry.  Just post a link back here so I can see you did.

The giveaway ends July 1st, 2012 at 11 pm CST.   The winner will be selected at random and notified via email (so be sure to use a valid email address when commenting).   In the event that the same person wins both books (with multiple entries it could happen) a second winner will be selected.  Limit 3 (three) entries per person. Open to residents of the US and Canada only (sorry, shipping is darn expensive!). I am providing the books from my own personal supply.

What pie cookbook giveaway would be complete without a pie recipe? This recipe is not in my latest book, this is an all new creation! Summer is here and that means the peaches are back at the market. If you have been reading for a while you know that I love peaches, so when they are in season I buy up as many as I can. For this pie I combined a little salted caramel sauce into the filling to add buttery richness. Caramel and peaches are beaches and margaritas, they are made for each other, so the addition was a no-brainer. Rather than a typical pastry crust for the topping I decided on a buttery crumble. It adds a touch of rustic charm to this somewhat sophisticated pie. I like this pie best with no adornment, but you could serve it with ice cream, or whipped cream if you wanted to doll it up. Personally, I don’t need the frills. It is just fine the way it is!

Salted Caramel Peach Crumble Pie   Yield 1 9-inch pie

For the crust:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon packed light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons vegetable shortening
6 tablespoons butter, cubed and chilled
3-5 tablespoons ice cold water

For the crumble:
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup butter, cubed and chilled

For the filling:
5 medium peaches, peeled, stone removed, and sliced
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup salted caramel (I used this recipe)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon cardamom

Salted caramel sauce, for garnish.


Begin by preparing the crust.

In a large bowl combine the flour, brown sugar, and salt. Whisk to combine then add the vegetable shortening and rub it in with your fingers until it completely coats the flour.

Add the cubed butter and, still using your fingers, rub it in until the mixture looks like coarse sand and no large pieces of butter remain.

Add the water, a tablespoons at a time, until the mixture forms a shaggy ball. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured works surface and press the dough into a disk. Flatten the dough, fold it in half, and flatten it again. Repeat this process 4 times, then wrap the dough in plastic and chill for 1 hour.

Once chilled pull the dough out of the refrigerator and let stand for 5 minutes to warm up. Roll out on a lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thick, about a 12-inch circle, turning the dough often to make sure it does not stick. Dust the surface with additional flour if needed.

Press the dough into a 9-inch pie plate and trim the dough to 1/2-inch of the plates edge. Tuck the dough under and crimp the edges. Cover with plastic and chill until ready to fill and bake.

Next, prepare the crumble.

In a medium bowl combine the flour, sugar, and salt. Add the butter and rub it into the flour mixture with your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse sand. Cover and chill for 30 minutes before using.

Now, prepare the peach filling.

In a medium bowl combine the sliced peaches, cornstarch, salted caramel sauce, vanilla, cinnamon, and cardamom. Gently toss to coat, then allow to stand for at least 10 minutes at room temperature.

Heat the oven to 425 F.

To assemble the pie fill the pastry crust with the peach filling, then evenly spread the crumble over the top. Bake for 12 minutes, then reduce the heat to 350 F and bake for 45 to 55 more minutes, or until the crumble is deeply golden brown and the filling is bubbling all over. Allow to cool to room temperature before serving.

Enjoy with a drizzle of salted caramel sauce!

  • this is stunning!

    my favorite pie was always my mom’s chess pie – cool, creamy and super sweet!

  • Congratulations on the new book. I added it to my amazon wish list. I posted on Facebook about this recipe. https://www.facebook.com/stephanie.mcquown

  • Mike

    My favorite pie would be my grandmother’s pecan pie -sweet and creamy filling and a flaky crust that melted in your mouth.

    I’d post a link on my Facebook page, but I’d rather not use my real name plus my profile is private. Oh well. I liked you just now, though, even though I subscribe to the RSS feed in my reader.

  • Carlene

    Peach, peach, peach of any kind! I was thrilled to get this one! 😀 I’m not a tweeter, so I’m hoping this and a FB link will do for my entry into the contest. Congrats on the new cookbook!! I’ll be looking for it … assuming I don’t win one! 😉

  • Jennifer

    This looks amazing! I can’t wait to try it out. My favorite pie is a blackberry and blueberry pie. I love the mix of berries.

  • I don’t know if I can think of just one pie recipe!!! Ack. In the summer my favorite is definitely key lime, even though I love fruit pie. Citrus is just so summery to me. I use the same recipe we used when I worked as a pastry chef at a seafood restaurant. I’ll probably post it soon. But in the winter I go ga ga for chocolate chip bourbon pecan pie. Sigh.

  • Posted on Twitter! https://twitter.com/SavorySimple/statuses/216255475732320256

    Most contests do separate comments for each entry. Now I’m realizing you want one comment with each step. My bad! So feel free to delete this, just know I took the steps!


  • I love pecan pie but have never had great success when baking one. I did a nice Concord grape pie last September which was met with rave reviews, though.

  • This pie looks amazing! Caramel and peaches, I can’t wait. I think my favorite is still lemon meringue pie though. Thanks for the giveaway, and congratulations!

  • Kay

    My current fav pie is the lovely mini pie bites you posted two weeke ago. My favorite all time pie is my aunt’s no frills apply pie.

  • karen

  • Kelly!! I saw this pie post first on instagram… Oh man.. it IS just lovely!! My favorite pie has got to be pumpkin. It reminds me of Halloween & Thanksgiving & Birthdays. One year when I was a kid, pumpkin pie is what I wanted as my birthday cake. It’s just SO GOOD! I see this pie in my future. The peaches are plentiful at my farmer’s market! 😀

  • Alyse

    My very, very favorite pie is fresh strawberry pie, piled way up high with juicy, red strawberries. It doesn’t need anything else- ok, maybe a glass of iced tea to go with it.

  • Whewy, this pie looks and sounds amazing! My mouth is currently watering 🙂 Pinned, can’t wait to try it out!

  • Billie

    Pumpkin pie is my favorite, but I can’t wait to try your peach pie!

  • Karen Blair

    My favorite recipe is not a recipe, I just add sugar, cinnamon, and a little bit of flour and butter, it’s yummy every time!

  • Lauren

    Omg that looks so good! I’m not actually big on pie…. I can’t even remember the last time I made one! I do love apple though. With lightly sweetend whipped cream on top.

  • I love, love, love the banana creme pie recipe that I have from Dorie Greenspan. Yum! Thanks for the chance to win.

  • Maureen, Milwaukee

    My favorite pie recipe was from my sister – Peaches and Cream Pie – so good you eat it in bowls so you don’t miss a single peachy drop! Love the look of your peach crumble pie – what a great recipe. Pie: The Perfect Food.

  • My husband has been begging for me to make a dessert made with salted caramel. I think this pie sounds like a great idea. My favorite is apple pie with the crumb topping. mmm. I love a good crumb topping! Congrats on the new cookbook!

  • Emily C.

    My Mom’s cherry pie. We had a cherry tree in our front yard growing up and always had an abundance of cherries to turn in to pie. It is nearly impossible for me to find fresh sour cherries to recreate the pie.

  • Mary

    My husband’s grandmother’s Buttermilk Pie recipe is a requested dessert for me to prepare every Christmas. It’s basically a chess pie that is so rich & delicious. His grandmother had passed away several years before I met my husband but I feel connected to her since I have made her recipe yearly for the past twenty years & it brings back sweet memories for my husband, his brother & their dad.

    My favorite pie is a super light and tall coconut cream from a long closed down restaurant in So. Cal. called Peter, Paul and Pie. I make a tart cherry pie that I love for a runner up with many others close behind. Pie is amazing, even for breakfast!

  • Libbi

    my favourite pie is my great aunt mary’s rhubarb pie. i don’t even think that there’s a recipe on file in the family. she passed away this last november and had a stroke/heart attack this time last year. so she hasn’t made that pie in a long time and it’s been even longer since i last got to have a slice. i miss that pie.

  • I desperately want your evil book. Salted caramel with peaches is brilliant. I heart you 🙂

  • I tweeted the giveaway..and my favorite pie? That’s like asking me to choose my favorite child 😉

  • Ginger

    My favorite pie is one my brother brought to Thanksgiving one year. It was a ginger pear pie with a crumble top. Soooo good! I’ll be looking forward to your cookbook 🙂

  • I’ll eat anything with salted caramel. And, of course, a crumbly topping. This looks like the Percy dessert for me!

  • Pauline

    My favourite pie recipe has to be my mom”s strawberry rhubarb pie. We used to grow rhubarb in our backyard and every summer she’d make this pie with Ontario strawberries and our rhubarb. I remember one year the pie was so good my brother and I simply ate it straight out of the pie dish.

  • A baker I am not! But my favorite pie recipe is my sister-in-law’s apple pie. It’s amazing. But this one looks amazing too. I may just have to give this one a try!

  • Kate

    Lattice tipped blackberry pie made with the freshest berries – picked just hours before! So plump and juicy with a delicious butter crust.

  • TC

    Sweet potato pie! It is my favorite. My sister will usually buy me one from a great pie place, one town over, for my birthdays. Sometimes, she’ll get them for me for Thanksgiving too. 🙂

  • HJ

    My hubby love blackberry pie, so I bake it whenever I think of it!!!

  • My favorite pie recipe is one for Key Lime Pie. The cookbook it is found in is so marked up from the changes I have made over time to improve it until it’s perfect!

  • June g.

    My childhood neighbor, mrs. Norton was the best baker! Her banana cream pie is phenomenal!

  • I love my husband’s pecan pie. It is a winner!!

  • Kari

    My grandmother’s peanut butter pie with a vanilla custard filling is the best pie ever.

  • Jan

    The man across the street used to bring Pineapple Pie to all the functions my Mom would have. I resisted trying it… Boy what a mistake, it was DELICIOUS. He’s gone and so is his recipie… Would love a recipe if you have one…

  • Chris

    My Granny Smith French Apple Pie looks a LOT like this pie…before you cut it, of course! My signature pie…the original recipe was clipped out of the local paper…then it was lost. As I tried to recover it from my scattered brain cells, I made it even better than the original! It’s the ONLY pie recipe I have that I do NOT share! I do, however, share the pie! I’ve even given it as a “thank you card” instead of the actual card! There is NOTHING like a phenomenal pie, IMO!!! My kids grew up on mostly birthday pie…because, well, plain ol’ birthday cake is boring by comparison. There were a few exceptions…but very very few! 😉 Another feather in my cap…my son’s high school foods teacher asked for the banana cream pie recipe he made…and told him that, in all her 31 years of teaching, it was the first time she’d ever been impressed enough to ask for a recipe. Yep, there’s absolutely NOTHING better than a good pie!!! Yep, I would LOVE to have your new book!!!!!

  • oh my gosh that pie looks absolutely incredible! YUMMMMMM!! you had me at crumble:)

  • My favorite kind of pie is lemon meringue. I love idea of salted caramel sauce and peach pie! Yummy! I can never get my pie crusts to look as nice as your’s.

    I Tweeted about your giveaway and posted a link on my FB page.

    I am so proud of you!!! Great work!

  • One of my favorites is the key lime pie recipe from Brown Eyed Baker. It’s so easy!

  • Kelly K

    One of my coworkers makes THE BEST coconut pie. Sometimes, when she bakes one for her family, she bakes a second and brings it to work to share. You have to move fast, though. It’s always gone before lunchtime! Trust me, I learned the hard way.

  • Definitely my mom’s classic apple pie, no sugar, homemade crust, super simple!

  • My favorite pie isn’t really a pie per se…it’s a cheesecake that my mom makes every Thanksgiving- vanilla cheesecake with chocolate chips, I crave it all year!

  • I actually found my favorite pie recipe on epicurious! It’s a tie between strawberry rhubarb and pumpkin, depending on the season of course. 🙂

  • Marie

    My favorite is my grandma’s apple pie.

  • Kari

    My favorite pie is pumpkin. No special recipe but it has to be topped with real whipped cream.

  • Greta

    Last summer I made my first pie: a simple rustic peach pie. I’ve since made a pie every month, but none has come close to the first.

  • Stephanie

    My favorite pie has always been lemon meringue!

  • My, My my favorite Pie would be Peanut Butter Pie. A friend ask me to make one, which I never had.

Thanks for the chance to win such a wonderful cookbook.

    I’ll admit to not really ever having been a pie fan, but they are my hubby’s favorite dessert so I’m trying to learn to make some! The best pie I ever had was a blueberry pie at a guest ranch in MT. If every pie was that good, I’d be a pie lover for sure! This cookbook sounds great!

  • I made this pie last week. It was incredible and didn’t last long enough to take even one photograph. I am headed to the farmers market tomorrow to buy some more peaches to make another. Terrific recipe!
