Peach Streusel Pie With Ginger

Peach Streusel Pie With Ginger combines the crunchy brown sugar crumble topping of a fruit crisp with the flakey crust of a pie. The filling of sliced sweet, fresh peaches, their caramelized juices mixing with brown sugar and the spice of fresh grated ginger is delicious. You can taste the sweet goodness of summer in each and every bite.

Ginger Peachy Streusel Pie

Peach Streusel Pie With Ginger

All during the summer, people have eaten wonderful sweet peaches in lots of salads, served alongside grilled meats and of course eaten in desserts but not in our home. After searching all summer long to find perfectly ripe peaches, I was thrilled to finally find some at the market that looked beautiful. They were still a little firm so I placed them in a bowl to ripen. After two days, they had the slightest give and you could smell their wonderful peach aroma when you walked pass them sitting on the counter. I had perfectly ripe peaches but now the question became how was I going to enjoy them.

Growing up in Texas, the first sweet peaches were always turned into peach ice cream to celebrate the 4th of July. After that, fresh peaches would usually be made into peach cobbler. Both desserts symbolized summer to me and still do. I don’t have an ice cream machine at our summer cottage in Maine and didn’t have enough peaches to make a large cobbler. I decided to turn my six beautiful peaches into a pie and it turned out terrific.

Peach Streusel Pie With Ginger

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.

  • 1 pie crust – Use your favorite recipe for a single 9 inch pie crust or use a pre made refrigerated pie crust

Filling

  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 1/4 c. cornstarch
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 6 peaches, peeled*
  • 2 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and grated

In a large bowl, mix the sugar, cornstarch and salt together, then stir in the lemon juice. Cut the peaches in half, remove the pit, slice and then add to the bowl. Stir in the grated ginger and let rest while you prepare the streusel.

*For easy peeling, bring a pot of water to a boil and blanch the peaches for ten seconds, immerse in ice water, then the skins will slip off easily with your fingers.

Streusel

  • 1/2 c. flour
  • 1/4 c. brown sugar
  • 1/4 c. butter, cut into small cubes and softened
  • pinch of salt

Place all the ingredients in a small bowl and mix with a pastry blender or fork. Then use fingertips to press into clumps.

To assemble the pie

Place the crust into a 9 inch glass pie pan. Trim to fit, leaving about a half-inch overhang, fold under and crimp the edge. Spoon in the filling and sprinkle the streusel over the peaches. Place on a foil or Silpat lined baking sheet (to catch juices that may bubble over) and bake on the lower rack of the oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 375 degrees and bake for 30 more minutes until the juices are bubbling thickly and the streusel is golden brown. If getting too brown, cover with foil. Remove from the oven and let the pie cool for at least an hour before serving.

****

I served the peach streusel pie with vanilla ice cream but whipped cream would be delicious as well. It was worth waiting for perfectly ripe peaches to make this pie. Peaches mixed with the caramelized goodness of brown sugar and ginger is a memorable taste of summer. I hope you will try the pie and enjoy it as much as I did.

For many people living in the US, the Labor Day holiday marks the end of summer even though fall doesn’t officially begin until the 22nd of September. I’m never willing to have summer end before it should. To my many friends living south of the equator, I hope fresh ripe peaches will be in your future before too long.

    This is my favorite kind of pie, and with the addition of ginger it’s a real winner. I bet ginger ice cream would be great with it, too. Can you believe summer is so close to being over? I don’t know where the time has gone! Hope your season in Maine has been a good one.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Linda, I thought the ginger went perfect with the sweet peaches. Our local ice cream stand has “Ginga” ice cream…we almost picked some up but I had vanilla in the freezer. :) It has been a nice summer in Maine…even though the weather wasn’t the best this year. Hope you have had a good one as well.

  2. Karen, That peach pie looks delicious! One of our favorite teas is peach-ginger so I know how wonderful those flavors are together. And yes, I totally agree about preserving the summer days. I have been talking about that idea too! Here in New England, while we appreciate the golden autumn colors and the glistening winter days, those precious summer days are too fleeting to rush! Linda

    • Karen says:

      Hi Linda, I appreciate your compliment. The flavor of peaches and ginger go so well together, I’m glad you agree. I think all of us New Englanders want to hold on to every precious of summer. :)

  3. OMG Karen, I can barely wait now for summer and all the beautiful things that come with it, peaches included. Gorgeous recipe! Thank you.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Lizzy, I can appreciate how you feel…winter’s cold will be ending for you soon. I’m happy you like the recipe and thank you for your compliment.

  4. This looks amazing! Ginger peach is one of my favorite combinations. In fact, I make a ginger peach jam. Thanks for this.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Princess, Thank you for stopping by for a visit and your nice compliment. I’m glad that you agree about the wonderful combination of ginger and peaches.

  5. Reblogged this on Amanda's Words / starfire8me and commented:
    damn, that looks good!

  6. Norma Chang says:

    Your pie is calling my name, with a huge scope of ice cream please, thanks.
    Our local peaches are big, sweet and juicy this year, I understand our wacky spring weather was good for our local fruits, expecting the best ever apple harvest.

  7. Yum!! I must tell you that the best Strawberry Pie I ever had was on Deer Island there in Maine—and now I must try my hand at this delicious looking Peach Pie–with the remaining Georgia peaches :)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Julie, I believe you will enjoy using your delicious Georgia peaches in this pie. I thought it was really good and I’m happy to know that you want to prepare it. Maine is known for having some good pie bakers, I bet your strawberry pie was terrific.

  8. Okay……….Karen……….this one is over-the-top!! The combination of the flaky crust, crunch top and GINGER………..OMG…I bet the flavors and texture is amazing. As much as we like ginger, I never thought of putting it in a peach pie.

    • Karen says:

      Thank you for your lovely compliment, Tin Man…I appreciate it. I believe this pie really does have everything going for it. :) I love fresh ginger in so many recipes and I think you will enjoy it with peaches.

  9. This is a wonderful recipe, Karen. A great way to enjoy peaches.

  10. As old as I am, I have never ever made nor eaten a peach pie. I even lived in Georgia for a while – no pie. I can’t wait for peach season to arrive again because this year is the year!

    • Karen says:

      Oh my goodness, Maureen, I can’t believe you lived in Georgia and never had a slice of peach pie. You have no idea what you missed. Well…you will definitely have to try it when delicious sweet peaches are in season. :)

  11. Peaches are summer to me too. I was just telling my husband, who grew up eating canned peaches, about my summers in Missouri sitting atop a shed right by our peach tree so I could pick the warm, sunkissed peaches from the top. They were so juicy from ripening right on the tree that it would run down my arms and cover my shirt. I ate as many out of hand as I could and mom would make pies or cobbler with the rest.
    Your peach pie reminded me of those summers of my youth and it is rare that I find peaches that good anymore. I love the idea of adding the spice of ginger. “Perfect!” was my first thought, love this.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Judy, I’m happy that this post brought back such nice memories. I know what you mean about peaches being so juicy that the juice runs down your arm when eating them. They are hard to find like that now unless you go to an orchard where you can pick them ripe off the trees. I’m glad you like my addition of ginger…it goes so well with the peaches. I enjoyed your comment, thank you for sharing!

  12. I have the hardest time finding really good peaches, like the ones I remember from my childhood. But it’s a great fruit to use in desserts! LOVE the addition of ginger Karen!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Paula, It is so hard to find really good peaches anymore…especially the ones we remember that were juicy and full of flavor. I’m glad to know that you like the recipe with the addition of ginger. Thank you for your compliment.

  13. Looks delicious! My peaches rarely make it into pie…I nearly always slice them up and eat them with my morning muesli :)

  14. This is exactly what I would like to make for dessert this weekend.

  15. Wow! This sounds delicious. Peach with ginger…great combo!

  16. Mary says:

    I’m making a pie today too! Now I wish I had some peaches instead of wild Maine blues! LOL! I also wish you could send me a slice of your delicious pie! Have a wonderful weekend!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Mary, I’m glad that you like my pie but I know your wild blue berry pie will be delicious too. Let’s see…we are an hour’s drive apart, perhaps we could exchange slices at the rest stop on the Maine turnpike. :) Have a great holiday weekend as well.

  17. This Streusel Pie looks great, I can only imagine how wonderful it smells too! YUM!

  18. Karen my fav is fresh peach pie and I cannot wait to try this one for sure….and I may not share a morsel.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Donna, I’m glad that you like peach pie as much as I do. I believe you will like this pie as we thought it was delicious. Thank you for your nice comment and enjoy the pie!

  19. Lynda says:

    Your pie is to-die-for! I bought peaches last week at the farmer’s market and made a cobbler. Now I’m looking for a good pie recipe and here it is. Your pie really looks amazing.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Lynda, It is nice to hear from you, I hope you are almost back to normal now after your knee surgery. Thank you for your lovely compliment. I’m sure your cobble was great and now I’m happy that I could supply you with a peach pie recipe. Enjoy!

  20. It’s hard to choose which is my favorite fruit because they’re all so good, but a fully ripe peach is one of life’s true pleasures, at least to me. We didn’t make a peach pie this year — I can’t believe it! So much other good stuff to make. Well, we’ll make up for it with plenty of apple pies in the fall! Good looking pie — thanks.

    • Karen says:

      Hi John, I’m glad you like the pie…thanks. I agree with you about a peach being one of life’s simple pleasures. It took me most of the summer to find peaches good enough for a pie so don’t feel bad. You know I will be have a few apple pies in my future too with three hundred trees in my back yard when we go back to New Hampshire this fall. :)

  21. NativeNM says:

    I always have a hard time letting go of Summer too! And Peach Pie is a must for me every summer. I’ve never paired peaches with ginger but it sounds intriguing!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Jan, Thank you for stopping by for a visit. I’m happy that you like the thought of adding ginger to peach pie, my husband and I thought it was delicious. Thank you for your comment.

  22. This is my all time fav! Peaches and ginger. yes. pie. yes. Then with the streusel in stead for the crust top. MY FAVORITE i tell you. good morning… wendy

    • Karen says:

      Hi Wendy, I’m glad that you like my peach pie. We really enjoyed its crunchy streusel topping and ginger peachy flavor. Thank you for your lovely compliment. Have a wonderful holiday weekend. :)

  23. Purely.. Kay says:

    I dislike being allergic to peaches. I wish I could eat them because I would soooooo make this, this weekend. But I think my mother would love this recipe so I’m sending this her way :)

    • Karen says:

      Oh Kay, I’m sorry to hear that you are allergic to peaches. :( I appreciate that you are sending the recipe to your mother, I hope she will enjoy it. Thank you!

  24. nice sweet bites!
    i love it even more with tons of cinnamon on the streussel topping….

    • Karen says:

      Thank you Dedy, for your compliment. The streusel topping would be terrific with cinnamon and the flavor will go well with the peaches and ginger.

  25. This looks amazing! I love ginger so I’ll need to give it a try. Thanks for sharing!

    • Karen says:

      Thank you Traci, for you lovely compliment. I always keep fresh ginger in my refrigerator and thought it would go nicely with the peaches. Since you like ginger the way I do, I think you will enjoy this pie. My husband and I thought it was terrific.

  26. I am in love with this peach struesel pie! Love the add of ginger in the filling.

  27. Amy says:

    Love that you put ginger in this! I much prefer streusel to crust on top.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Amy, I’m glad that you like the streusel topping on the peach pie. I love the added crunch with the texture of the soft peaches. I think the ginger was a terrific flavor booster. Thank you for your nice compliment.

  28. This peach streusel cake looks perfect, Karen! I absolutely love fruity desserts with fresh ginger, and I know my husband and I would really enjoy this cake!

    • Karen says:

      Thank you Georgia, for your nice compliment. My husband and I really enjoyed the pie…the fresh ginger was such a nice compliment to the sweetness of the peaches.

  29. viveka says:

    Karen, you are driving me nuts …. this is just what I would love to have a big piece of now .. crawling up in my big bed … with some episodes of House of Cards … and with ice cream on top.
    I love the combination ginger and fruit. Not a pie person, but this … no problem.
    Your photos are just screaming at me … eat me .. eAt Me .. EAT ME!
    I wish you a pleasant weekend.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Viveka, I wish I could send you a slice of this dessert…no I wish I could send you the whole pie. :) I hope you have a nice weekend as well. Thank you for your nice compliment and take care. :)

  30. Sue says:

    Karen-another winner! It looks fantastic.
    We’re in the midst of the Red Haven peach season,–they are especially good this year. As I was slicing up some for the freezer this morning, the juice was just running off my hands. I can’t recall the last time we had such good ones. I shall definitely try this recipe. Not really sure if hubby will leave it alone to cool for an entire hour, however! :D
    Hope you’re having a great summer. Temps have been cool all month here until this past week. It almost feels as if summer…..wasn’t.
    BUT—-I got a few Brandywine tomatoes so life is good.
    Take care and enjoy the holiday weekend.

    • Karen says:

      Thank you for your lovely compliment, Sue. You are so lucky to be in an area that has wonderful peaches…it took me a long time to find good ones this year. It is hard waiting to cut into this pie but the juices thicken as it cools. I’m so happy that you got some Brandywines! I’ll do a post about my poor tomato plants soon. We have gotten a few tomatoes but we have had cool, wet weather here. I’m fighting just to keep the plants from succumbing to disease and hoping that I’ll get a few more tomatoes to ripen. Let’s hope that next year will be better. :)

  31. Karen, peach pie is is a truely wonderful treat at this time of year, if and when you can get wonderful peaches (like you did). The addition of ginger certainly must be delicious in combination with the peaches and I think I can almost smell how wonderful your kitchen must have smelled when you baked this lovely pie, dear Karen!
    Hope you are having a great Friday and a wonderful weekend! Liebe Grüße aus Bonn – kind regards from Bonn!
    Andrea

    • Karen says:

      Hi Andrea, I thought the fresh ginger added a wonderful flavor to one of my favorite summer fruit pies. I’m glad you like the idea…thank you. Enjoy the weekend with your lovely family.

  32. A_Boleyn says:

    Summer fruits are so beautiful. I’ve got a basket of apricots destined for apricot crumble bars but it’s going to be a close call after seeing your lovely pie.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Boleyn, I’m glad you like the looks of the pie. Summer’s fresh fruits are all so delicious and I know your apricot crumble bars will be terrific…I love them. :)

  33. ramblingtart says:

    This sounds absolutely glorious, Karen! Especially with that lovely fresh ginger. Mmm. It must’ve smelled heavenly while it was baking. :-)

  34. I can almost smell those sweet peach juices, beautiful pie!

  35. Monet says:

    Hi Karen. Good choice! In my opinion, there is no better way to enjoy seasonal fruit than pie! I just love the addition of the ginger here too. What a nice flavor combo! Thank you for sharing!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Monet, A fruit pie is always good and I thought this one turned out to really well. I’m glad you like the idea of adding the fresh ginger…I think it went perfectly with the sweet peaches. Thank you for your nice compliment.

  36. cabinet stew says:

    YUM! Well you must know by now how I feel about my peaches! And ironically I just finished eating the most delicious, ripe, delicate, white peach just before reading this post!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Carol, I’m glad that you like the pie. I had to smile at your comment about eating a white peach. My husband caused white peaches to be wiped out in five minutes at a farm stand in Newbury, Mass. He told everyone standing around him that the peaches he was buying had the most incredibly aroma of any peach he had ever experienced. :)

  37. I’ve noticed several very delicious recipes for peaches recently. All of them, including yours, so, so edible! Interesting to note the use of cornstarch (we call it cornflour) as that would turn all of those juices into a thick sauce, I suppose. The reason for writing that is simple as I’m hoping to do a pear (as in sauce) and apple pie over the weekend. Both are in season right now. And I’ve never made pie before! It’ll be bordering on a disaster – and if not my kitchen will be!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Johnny, I’m glad you like the pie. The cornstarch or cornflour, as many call it, is added to thicken the juices in fruit pies. You can also use tapioca or flour. If not thickened, the juices tend to run out of the pie when sliced and can also create a soggy crust. The juicer the fruit, the more thickener is needed. Make sure to use a baking sheet under the pie pan to catch any juices that may bubble over. Good luck with your pies…I’m sure they will be terrific. :)

  38. This is such a beautiful, homey looking pie – the kind of thing that should grace every kitchen counter top before summer truly ends. I’ll be buying a basket of peaches this weekend and baking your pie in my kitchen. Can’t wait!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Lindy, I’m happy to know that you want to prepare the pie…thank you for your nice compliment. This is a simple pie but so good with its sweet streusel topping. Enjoy!

  39. Those peaches look amazing. I must try making peach ice cream this summer :)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Tandy, I had to wait a long time to find great peaches this year but they were delicious. I’ve always associated peaches with ice cream that we had each summer when I was a little girl. :)

  40. lvaletutto says:

    This looks sooo delicious, Karen! You have inspired me to pick up some ripe peaches from the market this weekend. I am interested in a good peach ice cream recipe. If you have one that you like to use maybe you would share that with us sometime?

    • Karen says:

      Hi Laura, This pie really was good…thank you. I have seen lots of peaches growing during my trips to Germany so I hope you find some good ones at the market. We have an ice cream stand just a block down the road here at the lake that has all natural ice cream that is delicious so I don’t have an ice cream machine.

  41. Karen, can you please cut me off a big slice while it is still hot out of the oven? Love that addition of ginger. Great comfort dessert. Have a super weekend. BAM

    • Karen says:

      Hi Bobbie, I wish I could put a slice of the pie in my email and hit the send button. It would cool off just enough by the time it got to you to eat. :) I hope you have a terrific weekend as well…thank you.

  42. What a luscious pie Karen. I really like the smell of peaches just as they turn ripe. Have never thought to add ginger to a peach pie. What a great idea. Hope you have a great Labor Day weekend.
    Sam

    • Karen says:

      Thank you for your nice compliment, Sam. I go by the aroma when I select peaches…they have a luscious smell when they are ripe. I believe you would enjoy the ginger…I thought its flavor was a good complement to the peaches. I hope you enjoy the holiday weekend as well.

  43. Sophie33 says:

    Waw! I am ready to lick the screen, Karen! Your ginger streusel peach pie looks just fabulous!
    I am so going to make that today! I would devour it drizzled with home-made hot vanilla custard,…ooh yes! MMMMMM!

  44. Mad Dog says:

    I’m not big on puddings, but that does look delicious, especially with the ginger ;-)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Mad Dog, I don’t prepare many sweets but I can tell you that this is one delicious dessert. This ginger gives the peaches a great flavor. :)

  45. What a great combination with the streusel topping and pie crust! And, the peaches with ginger is lovely. You used your peaches very well!

  46. cquek says:

    with vanilla icecream on top… wow! one of my favourite.

  47. Carolyn Chan says:

    I love peaches when they are at that stage of ripeness that you can smell them before you see them. They would have made such a delicious strudel !

    • Karen says:

      Hi Carolyn, I think aroma is a great way to tell when peaches are perfectly ripe…you can almost smell their sweetness. Strudel is a wonderful way to use fruit. :)

  48. Beautiful peaches you have found Karen. We have a bumper crop here in Nashville due to the nice summer weather we had….later summer, right now, not so much. You have made a stunning pie!

    • Karen says:

      Thank you for your nice compliment, Teresa…the pie was delicious. I was beginning to think I wouldn’t find good peaches this year but these turned out to be perfect. I’m glad you had a good crop this year, the south is known for their peaches.

  49. This sounds wonderful and I see some Southern in there for sure. I am going to an apple orchard on Monday and I think this would be good with apples too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Southern, You are right on both counts. :) This recipe would work well with apples. You know I’ll be having lots of them in my future…the trees in our orchard are loaded this year.

  50. Peaches are one of my most favorite fruits and these fresh, ripe and gorgeous peaches… Mmm. A beautiful pie, and I can imagine the hint of ginger blast in the peach filling.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Fae, I love peaches too but it was a challenge finding nice ones this year…these were great. Thank you for your compliment about the pie. The fresh ginger really gave this pie a wonderful flavor.

  51. Velva says:

    OMG that is a beautiful summer pie…..So, so, so pretty. Peaches in the south are wrapping up and with any luck fall will be just around the corner.

    • Karen says:

      Thank you Velva, for your nice compliment. I’m happy that I found these nice peaches…the pie turned out great. With fall around the corner, I’ll be picking apples for the next pie we eat. The trees in our orchard are loaded this year.

  52. This sounds very good and it looks especially tasty with the ice cream!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Kelli, The pie was as good as it looks and of course a little ice cream on the side makes my husband happy. Thank you for your nice compliment.

  53. There is just nothing like fresh peaches. This pie is so different. I love ginger and the streusel sounds just wonderful!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Becki, I wanted to make something a little different and I thought this pie was terrific with its streusel topping. The fresh ginger really enhanced the flavor. Thank you for your compliment.

  54. ChgoJohn says:

    Streusel topping is, for me, the best way to top a pie. Add that to your ginger-flavored filling and this pie is the perfect way to take advantage of the fresh peaches at our markets.

  55. eliotthecat says:

    Love this combo. I’ve added ginger to apple pie, but this is truly genius.

    • Karen says:

      Thank you Debra, for your nice compliment. I’m happy to know that you liked the combination. The fresh ginger gives an outstanding flavor to the pie. :)

  56. Karen this sounds delicious! I’ve never made a streusel pie and I think I’m going to have to put this on my “to do” list! Sounds lovely, thank you! Dana

  57. Lea Ann says:

    My goodness this looks wonderful. I may have it make it tomorrow for company. Thanks for a great recipe.

  58. I can’t believe I haven’t made not one Peach Pie this season. Why oh why has the time just slipped away for Peach Season? Good thing I did manage to freeze some fresh peaches which of course won’t be totally fresh anymore once defrosted:)

    Your Peach Pie looks delicious Karen. I love it with the streusel topping. It just adds that hint of crunch and sweetness. Oh how I wish I had a teeny slice right now!

    Thank you so much for sharing…

    • Karen says:

      Hi Louise, I know where you are coming from. Summer has passed so quickly and these were the first peaches that I found that were nice. Wish I could send you a slice of the pie…it was delicious. Thank you for your nice comment.

  59. Your pie looks so delicious, Karen. Peach is one of my favorites and I usually use a top crust. Your version is mouthwatering and I’m going to try it before the season is over. There is nothing more delicious than a perfectly ripe peach…yum.

  60. Sissi says:

    The peach pie looks fabulous! I love the idea to add fresh ginger. I have only added sometimes dried ginger to certain cakes, but never fresh one. I must test it one day. Thank you for the inspiration.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Sissi, I’m glad you like the pie…thank you for your compliment. I think you will enjoy using fresh ginger as it really adds so much addition flavor. I thought it went very well with the peaches.

  61. Oh Karen, you certainly have a way of describing your dishes to make me crave them … Immediately. I know exactly what you mean about holding out for just the right peach – not too hard and not all mealy.
    I don’t know if you celebrating the unofficial end of summer up there with the thunder, lightening, and downpour that we had here, but it was quite an impressive Labor Day display.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Diane, Thank you for your very kind words, I appreciate your compliment. Oh yes, nature put on quite a show last night…the weather was just like what you described here at the lake as well.

  62. Ruth says:

    I’ve been dying for peach pie all summer! Every time I bring home peaches, they always go bad before I can get to them. Maybe I’ll give them a try again at next weekend’s farmer’s market.
    BTW that blanching trick you mentioned sounds handy. Peeling peaches with a peeler or pairing knife is definitely tricky business!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Ruth, It seems if you buy a peach that feels ripe, it goes bad fast but a rock hard one never has any taste. I was lucky with the peaches that I bought…two days and they were “just right”. The 10 second blanch works so good. Once the peaches are cool enough to tough, just rub your fingers and the skin slips right off. I believe peeling any other way is wasteful and as you say “tricky business”.

  63. musingmar says:

    OMG, this sounds SO GOOD! I love peach pie, but with a streusel topping and ginger? Over the top! (And hopefully on my plate before long.)

    • Karen says:

      Thank you Marlene, for your very kind words. I’m happy to know that you like the recipe. I do hope you get a chance to make it, my husband and I thought the pie was really delicious.

  64. I don’t think I’ve ever thought about ginger and peach as a combination. It sounds most delicious and I can definitely see how they would compliment each other nicely. What a gorgeous pie Karen, thanks for sharing

    • Karen says:

      Hi Lisa, I do think that the fresh grated ginger went especially nice with the peaches. I hope you will give it a try…I think you will agree that it is a wonderful complement to the overall flavor. Thank you for your lovely compliment…I really appreciate it. :)

  65. hotlyspiced says:

    I can’t wait for peach season. Your plated dessert looks amazing. I love how you combined peaches with ginger and with the ice cream this is a terrific dessert xx

    • Karen says:

      Hi Charlie, I was thinking of all my friends from the “land down under” when I ended this post. I know you are all looking forward to warm weather and summer fruit. I’m glad that you like my peach pie with the fresh ginger. Thank you for your nice compliment.

  66. Liz says:

    Oh, your pie sounds terrific, Karen! I hate fiddling with double crusts…and the fresh ginger sounds like an amazing addition. I have 10 lbs of peaches in my fridge…and this pie has just made the short list :)

    • Karen says:

      Hi Liz, I’m very envious of the 10 pounds of peaches in your refrigerator. I hope that if you use some of those peaches for my pie recipe that you enjoy it as much as my husband and I did. Thank you for your nice compliment.

    Scrumptious! I used to make a peach pie with crumb topping which I loved, but haven’t made it in years. I’m really intrigued by the combination of ginger and peaches. I saw it in a jam recipe recently too, and I really want to give it a try. Happy Labor Day!

    • Karen says:

      Hi TW, I hope you had a nice Labor Day holiday too…we have had nothing but rainstorms here at the lake for the last couple of days. Thank you for your nice compliment. I think you will really like how the fresh ginger adds so much to the flavor of this pie and yes, make a streusel pie soon. :)

    I want this for breakfast! Would love to just grab a spoon and start eating right off my computer screen. This looks SO GOOD! Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!

    • Karen says:

      Hi MJ, Wish I could pass you a slice of this pie through your screen…it was delicious. Actually, I would enjoy sharing some with you for breakfast as well. We had a nice but very rainy weekend…I hope yours was lovely. :)

  71. That sounds so absolutely delicious! I love, love, love peaches!

  72. Beth says:

    Peaches and ginger are a perfect combination. I can’t believe I’ve never thought of making a pie like this. Thanks for the great idea!

      Hi Beth, This was perhaps one of the best peach pies I have had. Loved the fresh ginger with the peaches…it really enhanced the flavor. Thank you for your nice compliment. I’m happy to know that you like the recipe.

    • Karen says:

      Thank you Katerina, I’m happy to know that you like the looks of the peach pie. It was worth waiting until summer was almost over to find delicious peaches.

  76. What a delightful summer pudding Karen , and I love the addition of ginger too!

  77. Carolyn Jung says:

    You must be a mind-reader. Two of my fave ingredients are summer peaches and ginger. The two together would definitely make an outstanding pie.

  78. The streusel sounds amazing!

  79. I’d love this for the streusel topping while my husband would love it for the peach and ginger! :D

  80. peach and ginger. A FANTASTIC combination. I love it and reminds me of summer all over again.

  81. Amy Tong says:

    This Peach Streusel Pie With Ginger looks beautiful and delicious. I love peach and ginger together. :)

  82. Eva Taylor says:

    What a lovely idea to pair the peaches with ginger Karen, I bet it was fantastically delicious! Your scoop of ice cream looks perfect too, and home made I’m sure. We’re still having a few warmer days so I’ll save this for a slightly cooler time which I’m sure is coming right up!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Eva, I’m glad you like the flavor combination…the fresh ginger added so much flavor to the peaches. Cooler weather has arrived in Maine, it is 65 this afternoon and it is going to go down to the middle 30′s by tomorrow morning.

  83. Your pie looks fantastic! I love that you added ginger and the peaches look so delicious!

  84. This is my kind of dessert for sure Karen! I always pick a warm fruit dessert with a scoop of vanilla ice cream if I have a choice, yum, wish you were my neighbor! I’d love to be a mouse in your house :)

  85. ohlidia says:

    What a gorgeous pie Karen! I just happen to have some peaches and I will give this a try!

  86. Juliana says:

    Oh Karen, this peach pie with ginger topped with streusel sounds magic…and yes, I would love mine served with a scoop of ice cream.
    Thanks for the recipe and hope you are enjoying your week :D

    • Karen says:

      Hi Juliana, I appreciate your lovely compliment. I think this was an especially good dessert…I’m glad you like it. I hope you are having a nice week as well, thank you.

  87. Hannah says:

    What a beautiful pie, Karen! Peach pie is my favorite. We’re living near peach orchards now and we’re devouring peaches daily. I keep putting some aside to bake with, but then they get eaten! I’ll have to hide them better and make your pie. :)

    • Karen says:

      Thank you Hannah, for your nice compliment. I can appreciate having an orchard nearby to get fresh picked and perfectly ripe peaches. They are so wonderful when they have been left to ripen on the trees.

  88. And now, I want this for dessert!! Perfect with a scoop of ice cream! Great use of ginger here too.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Kiran, I wish I could share a piece of this pie with you. :) I do think you would enjoy the flavor combination of the peaches and fresh ginger. Thank you for your nice compliment.

  89. Fresh peaches are one of my all-time favorite foods and this is SUCH a fab use of them. YUM!

  90. dahliadd says:

    Mmm mmm, what a gr8 pic!! I could almost taste it!! Ginger is so good, I’m sure it would be yum in apple pie too.

    • Karen says:

      Thank you Dahlia, I’m happy to know that you enjoyed the photos. Yes, I do think fresh ginger would go very well in apple pie too. I’m going to try it when we start picking the apples in our orchard.

  91. Daniela says:

    Peaches and Ginger,what an amazing combination.
    Love that you used brown sugar in this recipe ,it’s so tasty and much healthier than its white cousin.
    This pie is such a temptation :)

  92. Reblogged this on The Mossy Tree and commented:

    • Karen says:

      Thank you France, for your nice compliment. I had to smile…I remember when you had told me how much you loved peaches when I commented on your tostadas topped with peaches. I think you would really enjoy the added flavor that the fresh ginger gives to the pie.

  100. rozpaige says:

    Roz

    • Karen says:

  101. Suzanne says:

    I love ginger in so many things but I have never tried this combination before. I will have to wait a while for our peaches to be ripe.

  102. What a delicious looking pie. I want a big piece right now!!!

  103. Raymund says:

    My oh my, thats a stunner. My jaws just dropped to the floor after looking at those peach streusel

  104. Your peach streusel pie looks perfect! And I’d love a slice right now. :)

  105. Charles says:

    Hi Karen – this looks so good… I meant to come by a few days ago to tell you I’d shared a link to it on my facebook page but I forgot. Streusel = awesome, and it’s perfect timing for it too… should make the most of the peaches while we can!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Charles, Thank you so much for adding a link about my pie on your Facebook page…that is so nice. I am happy that I put a streusel topping on the peaches instead of a top crust. My husband was just asking me about you and it wasn’t five minutes later that your comment popped up. :)

      • Charles says:

        Asking nice things I hope! Should my ears be burning? :D

      • Karen says:

        Absolutely! I’ve always enjoyed the way your love of life comes through your comments and always read them to my husband. He feels like he knows you and asked if I had heard from you lately. Hopefully one of these days we will get a chance to meet. :)

  106. This looks delicious, so tempting! I sometimes struggle to find peaches but I’m sure nectarines could be substituted? I am certainly going to try this.

  107. How timely! I have peaches, I have pie crust. Now I have a recipe. Thanks!
