Simple Peach Crumble

Crumbles are very easy to make, especially, for cooks like me.  I prefer the savory route, as you might have guessed.  So, when I have to make an easy, but delicious dessert for a mostly American gathering, I make a crumble.  It is best eaten warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or mascarpone cream on top.

THE PEACHES

6 medium yellow Peaches
1/3 cup granulated Sugar
4 tablespoons Lemon Juice
1 tablespoon Brandy (optional)
1 tablespoon Cornstarch
1 pinch of Salt
1 tablespoon organic Butter – to butter the baking dish

Wash and slice the peaches, and place them in a bowl.  Add the sugar, lemon juice, brandy, cornstarch, and salt to the peaches.  Mix all the ingredients together.  Let the peaches sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes, while stirring them occasionally.  Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.  Butter a baking dish, and place the peaches in it.  Put the peaches in the oven for about 20 minutes.  Remove them, but keep the oven on.  Stir the peaches to get all the released juices to evenly coat each slice.

THE CRUMBLE

1 cup all purpose Flour
1/2 cup quick cooking Oats
1/2 cup granulated Sugar
1/4 cup Dark Brown Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
8 tablespoons organic Butter – melted

In a bowl, add and whisk the flour, sugar, dark brown sugar, salt, and cinnamon together.  Melt the butter in a small saucepan, then add to the whisked dry ingredients, and mix well, until the butter in completely combined.  Using your hands, make small clumps out of the flour, sugar, and butter mixture, and top the peaches with them.  Scatter the clumps evenly all over the peaches.  Place the baking dish back in the oven, and cook for about an hour, until the crisp is golden and bubbling.  Take out of the oven, and allow to cool for about 10 to 15 minutes.  Serve with ice cream or mascarpone cream and ENJOY!

    Can’t wait to try this! We have three peach trees in our front yard and one is busting with peaches. We planted them all a few years ago (the newest was planted last Fall); along with a peach tree in the backyard and a fig tree as well. Thank you for the recipe!!!!! Love you!
