Need recipe for crumb-top peach pie

by Choley
(Pepperell, Ma)

My Mother used to make the best crumb-top peach pie--a flour-based crumb topping that she would brown slightly in the broiler area of her gas stove--we didn't get her to write it down when she was 'among us' and she doesn't seem to 'answer the heavenly phone'! I'll take a second best version! Choley
