This Spiced Peach Pie with Crumb Topping will instantly become your favorite dessert! The sweet homemade filling consists of freshly sliced peaches, spicy nutmeg, and sugar and is topped with a buttery crumble made with cinnamon. When I say you’ll love this easy peach pie, I really mean it! 

My family loves this recipe because it is so satisfying and pleasantly sweet! Juicy peaches coated in sugar, cinnamon, and spice, baked in a homemade pie crust and topped with a spiced crumb topping.  This is the best peach pie recipe I’ve ever had. This fact is confirmed because I recently made this peach pie crumble and was reminded of the scrumptiously sweet peach pilling. Fitting for late summer, this is a classic dessert that begs to be eaten! 


This is the perfect pie for any occasion! We like to keep desserts in the household pretty much all the time because life is too short to miss out on the sweet things in life! Wouldn’t you agree?

Fresh peaches are crazy good this time of year, I highly recommend that you give this recipe a try.

Make this peach pie recipe with fresh peaches. But in a pinch, when you get a craving and peaches aren’t in season, frozen ones work well, too.  Every summer, I slice and prepare a bunch of sliced peaches and freeze them for special recipes such as this spiced peach pie. You can never have too many peaches!


Mmmm. Pie.

I love pie… you may have heard me say that once or a hundred times. It’s hard to tell you what kind is truly my favorite, Chocolate Meringue? French Silk? Banana Cream? Yes, all good choices. 

 But fruit pies are always up there, too! Anything baked with spices of nutmeg, ginger, cloves, and cinnamon are tops.  (plus your kitchen smells AMAZING when it’s baking!) This Spice Peach Pie with Crumb Topping is hands down ONE of my favorites for ALL of these reasons.

Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and my oh my, it’s like heaven in your mouth! My kids actually fought over the last piece!


Check out these gorgeous peaches I was given! My friend, Lori has peach trees in her yard and they are amazing! Not only are they huge, but they are also perfectly sweet and juicy. I made this pie and I took the rest of them and froze them. That way I could make another one of these pies for Thanksgiving, and use the peaches for smoothies during the winter. 

If you have a whole bunch of peaches and want to can them, here is a fantastic no-fail recipe for canning sliced peaches!


Do you Peel Peaches for Pie? 

It is up to personal preference if you would like to peel the peaches. Personally, I don’t mind them either way. Typically I peel them, but if you choose to leave them on, as the peaches bake, the skins of the peaches become more tender, which makes them easier to eat. 

Ingredients for the Perfect Peach Crumble Pie Recipe

Pie Crust: For this recipe, you can use either storebought or homemade pie crust. Just make sure it is unbaked! 
Peaches: Any kind of peaches are fine for this recipe such as freestone, yellow, white, or Saturn peaches.
Sugar: Regular white granulated sugar is the sweetener for this recipe making the filling and the crumble sweet and delicious. 
Spices: What would this recipe be without the spices? Flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves come together to create a peach pie recipe that is spicy, warm, and well-balanced.
Flour: Flour is used for both the filling and the crumble, so make sure you have some handy! Feel free to experiment with 1:1 gluten-free flour.
Vanilla: invest in a good bottle of pure vanilla extract. You’ll be so happy that you did. I buy mine at the Mexican grocery store. 
Lemon Juice: Fresh citrus allows the peaches to remain bright and flavorful. Definitely a key element to this recipe!
Butter: Use your choice of salted or unsalted butter, just be sure to use cold butter. For dairy-free versions, use dairy-free butter. 

For Serving:

Whipped Cream: Use Cool Whip or homemade whipped cream as an exceptional addition to this dessert recipe. 
Ice Cream: Vanilla ice cream is delicious with this pie–use homemade or your favorite storebought ice cream.

Your may peach pie may be running because it hasn’t had long enough to bake in the oven. Make sure the pie has baked long enough! The longer the pie bakes, the thicker it will get.
