Peach Crisp

28 Dec

OMG, this baby is to die for.  I recently made this with the last of Grandma Geraldine Knorr’s fresh (frozen) sweet, sliced peaches and it was superb.  Since peaches aren’t in season and I don’t really like peeling and cutting them, I think I will try it next with frozen sliced peaches.  I know it won’t be the same, but I’m counting on the amazing crumbly topping to compensate.  I have also made it successfully with fresh Bartlett pears from Grandma Kapke’s backyard tree; I just need to remember to bake the pears a bit longer if they’re not yet completely ripe.  I tweaked her original….but thank you Anne Burrell!!!

Ingredients

For the filling:

  • 5 large ripe peaches, pitted and cut into chunks (or 3 cups frozen peach slices, thawed)
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup tightly packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch kosher salt

For the topping:

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 1/4 stick cold unsalted butter, cut into pea sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • Pinch kosher salt
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons cold water

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

For the filling:

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Pour into a 9×9 stoneware baker.

For the topping:

Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor except the water. Using the dough blade, pulse until combined, this will take about 30 seconds. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time until mixture is clumpy but crumbly.

Top filling with the topping. Be sure to loosely sprinkle the topping and not pack it down. The idea is to look very crumbly and craggy.

Bake in the preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the filling is hot and bubbly and the topping, brown and crispy.
