Peach pie is typical of our state, and this recipe includes typically Southern praline topping. It was given to me when I married and set up our home more than 40 years ago. I can and freeze peaches to make this pie year-round.

  • 4 cups sliced peeled ripe peaches

  • ½ cup sugar

  • 2 tablespoons quick-cooking tapioca

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar

  • ½ cup chopped pecans

  • ¼ cup butter or margarine

  • 1 (9 inch) deep dish unbaked pie shell

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine peaches, sugar, tapioca and lemon juice; let stand 15 minutes. Meanwhile, combine flour, brown sugar and pecans in a small bowl; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle 1/3 of crumbs over bottom of pie shell; cover with peach mixture. Sprinkle remaining crumbs on top, allowing peaches to show if desired. Bake at 450 degrees F for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F and bake 20 minutes longer or until peaches are tender and topping is golden brown.
