  • Portion size 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cups sour cream
  • 3/4 cups Balkan-style plain yogurt
  • 1 dash almond extract
  • 5 cups thickly sliced peeled peach (about 5 large)
Pastry:
  • 1 3/4 cup sifted cake-and-pastry flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind
  • 1/3 cup cubed lard
  • 1/3 cup cubed butter
  • 1/4 cup cold cubed butter
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
Topping:
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cold cubed butter
  • 1/3 cup slivered almond

Method

Pastry: In large bowl, whisk together flour, salt and lemon rind. With pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in lard and butter until crumbly with a few larger pea-size pieces.

In liquid measure, stir together egg yolk, lemon juice and enough ice water to make 1/4 cup (50 mL). Drizzle over dry ingredients, tossing with fork until clumped together in ragged dough. With hands, press together into disc. Wrap and chill for 30 minutes.

On lightly floured surface, roll out pastry into 12-inch (30 cm) circle; roll around rolling pin then unroll over 9-inch (23 cm) glass pie plate, easing into plate. Trim 1/2-inch (1 cm) from edge of rim; fold overhang under and flute neatly. (Make-ahead: Wrap and refrigerate for up to 2 days.)

In large bowl, stir sugar with flour; whisk in sour cream and almond extract. Add peaches; stir just to coat. Scrape into pie shell; set aside.

Topping: In bowl, stir flour with brown sugar; cut in butter until crumbly. Mix in almonds; sprinkle over filling. Bake in lower third of 425°F (220°C) oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°F (180°C); bake until pastry and topping are golden brown and filling starts to bubble around edge, about 35 minutes. Let cool on rack.
