I only had one sleepover in my life. I felt so cool and adult getting to do it in fifth or sixth grade. I invited one friend over, my best friend, or so I thought. I would learn a couple years later when she didn’t invite me to her birthday party that she was never really my friend. She was the pretty, hip, cool girl, and I was in my awkward phase.
If you’re wondering if she’s going through her awkward phase now and peaked in grade school, she’s not and she didn’t. She seems very successful and to have it all together, but that’s just from Googling her and looking her up on Facebook. #sorrynotsorry. We all do it, just admit it. And I’m sure that’s only a snapshot of her life, but still, she seems good.
Anyway, back to the sleepover itself. It was fun and all, but not everything I hoped. I don’t remember what we did right after school. But when it came time for sleeping, I wanted to make a bed on the floor of the family room and talk and watch TV and snack all night and she wanted to go to actual bed.
Fine, I thought, we can talk there. But shortly after we were in bed, I was in the middle of talking to her and she fell asleep. The next day we drew pictures and played computer game and she went home. It was fine. Really, it was a symbol of the bigger picture of my childhood. Or maybe my life.
If I were to have a sleepover now, which for the record, I’m not, because my friends are too busy with their lives to text me back let alone spend the night at my house, but if I were, I would totally want to have this Peach Slab Pie. I want to sleep on the floor and watch movies all night and eat too much pie.
So I told you peaches are my ride or die and I’m not giving up on them yet. They are the star of this massive, picture perfect pie that serves a crowd. I hadn’t made a slab pie before, and I promise this won’t be my last.
With my favorite flaky pie crust on the bottom, juicy, cinnamon-y peaches in the middle, and an irresistible crumb topping with just a hint of black pepper on top, maybe I should just make friends with this pie and we can have a sleepover all to ourselves.
- Make the crust. In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, and salt. Add the shortening and butter and work in using a pastry cutter or your hands until the mixture resembles coarse meal. This may also be done in a food processor. Add the water beginning with 4 tablespoons, until the dough comes together when pressed.
- Form the dough into a flat disc and wrap tightly with plastic. Refrigerate at least 2 hours and up to 2 days.
- When you are ready to make the pie, roll the dough out on a floured surface into a large rectangle large enough to fit a 9 by 13-inch pan and go up the sides. It’s okay if it is not perfect, feel free to patch once the dough is in the pan. Once you roll the dough out, place it in an oiled 9 by 13-inch pan and form it to fit the pan. Refrigerate while you make the filling and topping.
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Make the topping. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, pepper, butter, and oil, until large clumps form. Set aside.
- Make the filling. In a large bowl, stir together peaches, cinnamon, cornstarch, sugar, lemon, bourbon, and vanilla bean seeds until well combined and no clumps of cornstarch remain.
- Remove the crust from the refrigerator and pour the filling in. Cover evenly with topping. Place pan on a foil lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Without opening the oven, lower the temperature to 375 degrees F and bake for an additional 55 – 65 minutes, until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
- Allow pie to cool at least 4 hours and up to overnight before serving. Pie may be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or frozen in pieces, wrapped in parchment and foil and placed in a zipper bag for up to 3 months. Thaw in a 350 degree F oven for about 20 minutes.
