There are two great things about this summer slab pie: It serves a big crowd and you don’t have to roll out the dough. We opted for a press-in dough (reminiscent of shortbread), which is super easy to make and saves lots of time. For something a little different, substitute pecans or skinned hazelnuts for the almonds in the streusel topping.

Directions

Notes

Special equipment: A rimmed 10-by-15-inch baking sheet

Step 1

Adjust a rack to the bottom third of the oven and preheat the oven to 375ºF. Grease the bottom and sides of a rimmed 10-by-15-inch baking sheet with butter.

Step 2

For the dough: Combine the butter, flour, confectioners’ sugar and salt in a food processor and process until the mixture comes together in a solid mass (this may take a few minutes). Drop pieces of the dough all over the prepared baking sheet. Use your fingers to press the dough evenly along the bottom and about 1/2 inch up the sides of the pan, filling any gaps. Set aside.

Step 3

For the filling: Toss together the peaches, brown sugar, lemon juice, cornstarch, vanilla, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg in a large bowl until the cornstarch dissolves. Transfer the filling onto the crust and spread in an even layer. Bake for 30 minutes.

Step 4

For the streusel: While the pie bakes, make the strussel topping by combining the flour, almonds, brown sugar, melted butter and salt in a small bowl until evenly moistened.

Step 5

Remove the pie from the oven and sprinkle the streusel evenly over the filling. Return the pie to the oven and bake until the topping is golden brown and the filling is bubbly, 25 to 30 minutes more. (If the crust browns too quickly during baking, cover the pie loosely with foil.)

Step 6

Let the pie cool. Serve warm or at room temperature.
