Are you all enjoying this Summer?
I am! Our peach trees are exploding with peaches – we have peaches coming out of our ears!
So what do you do with the excess peaches… bake them!

This isn’t your average peach crisp recipe.
I added some pecans into the crunchy crisp – which typically are associated with Fall foods.
I thought, hmm, Georgia is known for peaches and pecans, so let’s try them both together!
I was pleasantly surprised! It was a hit!
Peach Pecan Crumbly Crisp Recipe
Approx 5-6 cups of sliced and peeled peaches (about 6 medium peaches, I used about 10 peaches as they were very small)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tbsp granulated sugar*
3/4 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup old-fashioned rolled oats or quick oats
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted pecans, chopped or halved
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened or melted
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease an 8-9″ baking pan or pie pan.
2. Make your filling by combining the peaches, flour, salt, vanilla and sugar. Use a spatula to gently mix together as you don’t want your peaches falling apart! Pour into your prepared dish.
3. Prepare your topping by combing the sugar, flour, oats, cinnamon and salt. Mix those together. Then add in the pecans. Pour your butter on top and mix until it is a crumbly mixture (it will turn to a darker color as the butter absorbs into the ingredients)
4. Evenly spoon the topping onto your peaches. Bake for about 35-45 minutes until the mixture is browned on top and the peaches are bubbling at the edges.
5. Allow to cool. This tastes best when it is warm served with vanilla ice cream, hint hint. If you have some leftovers the next day (the horror! You didn’t eat it all the first day?) just heat it up either in the toaster oven or in the microwave.
If you are peeling a lot of peaches like I did, you want to prevent the peaches from going brown. I toss my peaches with Fruit Fresh.
You can also used canned peaches.
You could always add more or less pecans as you wish.
This was delicious and the topping could be used for any crisp – berry crisp, ooh, APPLE crisp! Now I am drooling…
