Ingredients

  • 3 pounds peaches peeled and sliced
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup cold butter cut into cubes
  • 1 1/4 cup plus 3 teaspoons flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 beaten egg

Instructions

Crust

  1. Mix 1 1/4 cup flour with sea salt in a large bowl. Add cold butter and work together with hands until a coarse meal forms. Add cold water and continue working until the dough melds together. Shape into a square, wrap in plastic wrap, and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

Filling

  1. While dough chills, mix peaches, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and remaining flour in a large bowl. Add lemon juice and mix well.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat and add in filling mixture. Cook until bubbly and thickened, stirring as necessary.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour filling into a square (I used 8in X 8in) baking pan. Set aside.
  4. Roll out dough and cut into 8 one-inch strips. Lay over top of filling in a lattice or criss-cross pattern. Brush with beaten egg then sprinkle with white sugar.
  5. Bake for about 45 minutes or until crust is golden. Allow to cool and set for at least another 45 minutes then serve.
