Peach Slab Pie With Streusel Topping

I don’t know about you, but I love baking with fresh fruit. You know exactly what is going into the dish and the natural flavor of the fruit just tastes better than store-bought.

This Peach Slab Pie With Streusel Topping is a dessert recipe to have at-the-ready when you have fresh peaches on hand. It comes together quickly and, because it fills a big baking sheet, it can feed a crowd.

Preparing the Peaches

The thought of slicing peaches once caused me anxiety, until I learned an easy way to peel off the fuzzy skin and cut around that pesky pit.

I blanch the peaches so that the skin is easy to peel off. To do it, use a 2-3/4″ Paring Knife to make some cuts on the top of each peach by slicing across to form an X. Place the peaches into boiling water for a few minutes and then drop them into a bowl of ice water. This will allow the skin to separate a bit, making it easier to peel off.

Cut an x in the top of each peach with a Paring Knife.

Once the skin is removed from the peach, cut the fruit in half around the pit with a longer 4″ Paring Knife. Use the tip of the knife to cut around the pit to remove it.

Cut around the pit with 4 Inch Paring Knife.

Once the pit is out, you can easily slice the peaches.

Slab pies can be made with just a single fruit or a combination of two or three fruits. Just make sure whatever you use has approximately the same cooking/baking time for doneness.

Making the Slab Pie

In a large bowl, using a Slotted Spoon, toss the sliced peaches together with brown sugar, lemon juice, cornstarch, vanilla, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg. Once that’s done, this recipe comes together easily with the convenience of refrigerated pie crust, which is spread out across a sheet pan and then loaded up with the peaches.

Scooping the peaches onto the dough.

The streusel topping is the finishing touch and is easily made by combining flour, chopped pecans, brown sugar, unsalted butter and kosher salt. This crumbly mixture is sprinkled over the top of the peaches creating a mouth-watering crunchy topping.

Fruity, sweet and slightly nutty, this Peach Slab Pie With Streusel Topping is perhaps the perfect sweet treat, especially if you’re looking to feed a crowd. While a regular pie can serve six to eight, a slab pie can easily serve 12 to 15.

  • 1 package refrigerated pie crust


  • 3 pounds ripe peaches (about 6 peaches), sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Streusel topping:

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Combine all ingredients in a small bowl.


  1. Combine all ingredients in a small bowl.
  2. Toss the peaches, brown sugar, lemon juice, cornstarch, vanilla, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg in a large bowl.
  3. Lightly butter the bottom and sides of a rimmed 10-by-15-inch baking sheet. 
  4. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, stack the pie crusts one on top of the other. Roll out to a 17-by-12-inch rectangle.
  6. Fit the crust into the pan, folding the extra crust even with the edges of the pan. Spoon filling onto the crust and spread evenly.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes. Tip: I put the prepared pie on another larger sheet pan before putting it in the oven to catch any juices that might bubble over.
  8. Remove pie from the oven, sprinkle streusel evenly over the top.
  9. Return pie to the oven and bake an additional 30 minutes until topping is golden brown and filling is bubbly.
  10. Serve warm or at room temperature.
