Peach Crumble

Don’t get me wrong, we wouldn’t kick pie outta bed for eating crackers (eh?) or anything, but in my family, cobbler is king. Or a crumble for great flavor and ease of preparation.  Preferably peach, if we have a choice, although we aren’t that picky if you have some other fruit you want to use.

Combine that love with the always-eagerly-anticipated Colorado peach season, and I could hear the crumble calling all week – so movie night at The Tree House called for Peach Crumble a la Mode.

Break out the dessert bowls, you will want this right out of the oven!

What You Need:

1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon  nutmeg

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Pinch of salt

4 tablespoons  butter

5 peaches

Optional -1 teaspoon sugar

What You Do:

Pre-heat the oven to 35o degrees.

Make the topping by combining the flour, sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, salt and butter (cold is best here people,) together in a bowl.  Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly (the butter will be small peanut-sized (or smaller) pieces coated in the dry ingredients, like this:

Reserve the crumble mixture in the refrigerator until needed.

Then peel and slice the peaches:

Arrange the peach slices in a 9 x 9 glass container, buttered or coated with cooking spray,  and sprinkle with teaspoon of sugar (if desired – I like my peaches extra sweet!)

Now sprinkle the topping evenly over the peaches and bake the crumble uncovered for 30 minutes or until the top gets, well, crumbly.

Serve it right out of the oven with a nice scoop of ice cream melting down over the top. Ohhhhhh Yeahhhhhh.

(Let’s look at it again, shall we?)

Try it.  You’re welcome.
