Tips for making this Peach Pie:
- When making the pastry crust, add the water a little at a time until you end up with a firm dough – don’t add it all at once in case the dough ends up too wet
- You can substitute the gluten-free flour in the pastry or the crumble topping with rice flour, or normal plain flour if not gluten-free
- Make sure to grease the pie dish so that the crust doesn’t stick to it
- It will work with either fresh or tinned peaches
- When using fresh peaches, I like to peel them first for a super soft and silky texture
- You can swap the peaches for any other similar fruit such as nectarines, plums, apricots or cherries
- You can substitute the pecan nuts in the crumble topping with any other nuts such as almonds, walnuts or pistachios
Equipment you’ll need to make this Gluten-Free Vegan Peach Pie:
- glass mixing bowl – for mixing together the ingredients for the pastry, the filling and the crumble topping – you can use the same bowl for all three, no need to wash in between
- pie dish – I used a 20.5 cm/8 inch pie dish
How long does this Peach Pie keep for?
Although this pie does taste best when fresh, it keeps covered in the fridge for a few days. It’s delicious eaten warm out the oven or cold from the fridge.
