For the Peaches:

  • 2 to 2.5 pounds peaches, about 8 peaches (you can also use canned peaches, drained)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons lemon juice, you can also use vanilla extract or almond extract
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar

For the Topping:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ cup butter, diced (1 stick/8 tablespoons)
  • ¾ cup old fashioned rolled oats or quick cooking oats
  • cup chopped pecans, optional
  • Vanilla ice cream, for serving, optional


To Make the Peaches:

  • Preheat oven to 350˚F.
  • Butter a 9x9 or 9x12 baking dish and set aside.
  • To blanch the peaches, bring a large pot of water to a boil; place the peaches in the boiling water for one minutes, or just until the skins peel off easily.
  • Transfer the peaches to ice cold water.
  • Peel the peaches; remove the pits and cut into ½-inch thick slices.
  • Transfer sliced peaches to a bowl and toss with lemon juice.
  • Sprinkle with cornstarch and sugar and toss to combine.
  • Arrange peaches on the bottom of previously prepared baking dish and set aside.

To Make the Topping and Bake:

  • In a food processor fitted with a steel blade, combine flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg.
  • Pulse until everything is combined.
  • Add in the diced butter and pulse until the mixture resembles peas-sized crumbs.
  • Transfer to a bowl and, using your hands, mix in the rolled oats and pecans, if using.
  • Sprinkle the flour mixture evenly over the peaches in one layer.
  • Bake for 45 minutes, or until the top is a golden brown and the fruit is bubbly.
  • Remove from oven and let stand 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Serve with scoops of vanilla ice cream.
