3/4 cups white sugar
2 Tbs butter, softened
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

Cream sugar and butter or margarine together. Add flour and nutmeg; mix until mealy. Spread 1/2 of mixture in pie crust. Arrange peaches on top of crumb mixture. Sprinkle remaining crumb mixture on top of peaches.

Peach Finger Pie
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 Tbs white sugar
1 pinch salt
1 1/2 cups vegetable shortening
1 egg
cold water, or as needed

1 1/4 cups water, divided
1/4 cup cornstarch
3/4 cup white sugar
1/4 tsp salt (optional)
1 Tbs lemon juice (optional)
4 cups fresh Georgia peaches - peeled, pitted and sliced

Mix together the flour, 2 Tbs of sugar and a pinch of salt in a large bowl. Cut the shortening into the flour mixture until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Beat the egg in a small bowl and pour it into a 1 cup measuring cup. Pour in enough cold water to total 1 cup, and mix the water and egg into the dough. Mix the dough a few times with your fingers until it holds together. Divide the dough in half.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Whisk together 3/4 cup of water with the cornstarch in a bowl until smooth and set aside. Mix 1/2 cup of water with 3/4 cup of sugar in a large saucepan until the sugar has dissolved and bring to a boil. Whisk the cornstarch mixture into the boiling sugar mixture until thickened and translucent, whisking constantly, about 1 minute; whisk in 1/4 tsp of salt and lemon juice, if desired. Combine with the sliced peaches.

Roll half the crust out on a floured surface in a rectangle shape about12 by 20 inches and fit the pastry into a 10x15 inch jellyroll pan. Roll the second half of the crust out to the same size as the first crust. Pour the peach filling into the bottom crust and place the top crust on the pie. Crimp and fold the edges to seal and cut several slits into the top crust.

Bake in the preheated oven until the crust is browned and the filling is bubbling, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Allow to cool completely to let the filling set up before slicing into squares to serve.
