Even though we are getting into Fall, peaches still haven’t gone out of style! What could be more perfect on a cloudy, chilly day than a bowl of warm, gooey Peach Crumble topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream that is just starting to melt? Sounds perfect to me! The peaches cook down and caramelize with the sugars and cinnamon to make a peachy, gooey, decadent base that is topped off with an almond crumble that resembles a crunchy, almond sugar cookie. Top it all off with vanilla ice cream and you have Peach Crumble heaven.

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 50 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients

For the peach base:

  • 5 peaches, cored and cut into 1/4 thick slices
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

For the crumble topping:

  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a medium-sized bowl, toss together all of the ingredients for the peach base until the peaches are evenly coated with all of the ingredients. Set aside
  2. In a small bowl, combine all of the ingredients for the crumble topping. Use either a fork or a rubber spatula to mix all of the ingredients together until a buttery crumble forms.
  3. Pour the peach base into the bottom of a 9 or 10 inch pie dish. Evenly top the peaches with the crumble and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until the top of the crumble is slightly golden brown and the peaches are bubbling and caramelized.
  4. Enjoy slightly warm with vanilla ice cream.

Notes

  • You can leave the skin of the peaches on, or choose to peal them. I personally love to leave them on!
  • If you are subbing frozen peaches, do not defrost them prior to baking. Just follow the same steps of tossing them together with all of the peach base ingredients and then topping with the crumble and baking.
