Upside-Down Ginger-Pecan Peach Pie

It wouldn’t be a peachy meal without peach pie. This recipe combines an upside-down cake, a pecan pie and peach cobbler for a delicious summer treat. Recipe yields 1 pie.


  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 2 tablespoons minced crystallized ginger
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, divided
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons softened butter, divided
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 4 peaches, pitted and cut into 8 slices each
  • 8 small scoops vanilla bean ice cream (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F and lightly butter a loaf pan.

  2. Stir together flour, powdered sugar, pecans, crystallized ginger and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Add in 1/2 cup butter and mix well to form a soft dough.

  3. Press into the bottom of prepared pan and bake for 25 minutes. Set aside to cool, then break into a rough crumble, leaving some larger and smaller pieces.

  4. Melt remaining butter and cinnamon with brown sugar in a large bowl in the microwave. Toss fruit in butter mixture then grill over high heat for about 1 to 2 minutes on each side to lightly brown. Remove from grill.

  5. Place ice cream in bowls and top with warm fruit and sprinkle with crumbled shortbread.
