Peach Pie with Toasted Pecans
and Peach Scented Sugar



Peach Scented Sugar




  1. Prepare Peach Scented Sugar: In a small bowl or ramekin dish, combine sugar with liqueur, mixing by hand until it begins to clump. Let sit out in a single layer to dry for about 1 hour, folding once or twice to distribute evenly. Cover and store at room temperature. (Can be done two days in advance.)
  2. Prepare Glaze: In a ramekin or small coffee cup, combine Karo syrup with liqueur with a fork until well combined. Set aside.
  3. In a one-quart saucepan, toast the pecans in the 2 tablespoons butter until fragrant. Stir in the salt. Set aside.
  4. Combine peaches, sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and almond extract. Fold in the pecans, along with the butter from the pan, reserving 2 tablespoons of the toasted pecans.
  5. Place one of the Pillsbury crusts in the bottom of a 9-inch pie place. Pour in the peach filling. Attach top crust, seal edges and cut vents.
  6. Bake at 425 degrees F for 10 minutes, then reduce temperature to 375 degrees F and bake 40 minutes longer, until filling is thickened and bubbly.
  7. Remove pie from oven, brush with glaze and return to oven for three minutes to set.
  8. Remove pie from oven. Let cool for 10 minutes.
  9. Sprinkle with the scented sugar, then with the reserved 2 tablespoons toasted pecans.
