My all time favorite summer fruit is the peach. When ripe, a bite into the sweet juicy flesh is like a taste of heaven. During the peach season I want to make peach everything: peach ice cream, peach milkshakes, peach pastries, peach bellinis... I think you get the idea. When I'm in the mood for peach pie, but feel much too lazy to whip up a homemade pie crust, I make the next best thing: peach crumble. It's a dessert that comes together in virtually minutes, all you have to do is peel and slice the peaches, then top with a flour, butter, brown sugar mixture. For no fuss baking at its best, get the recipe now,
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon
Pinch of salt
4 tbsp. butter
5 peaches, or 2 16-oz. cans of peach halves, drained and sliced
- Make the topping by combining flour, brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt in a bowl. Cut in the butter and mix with your fingers until crumbly. Set aside.
- Peel and slice peaches. Arrange the slices in a buttered 1-quart baking dish.
- Cover with the crumble topping and bake at 450 degrees for 20 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream or alone cooled at room temperature.
