  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 1 large peach crisp 1x



Peach Filling

  • 3 ½ pounds peaches, sliced
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice (only use if peaches are very sweet)
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ⅛ teaspoon kosher salt

Crisp Topping

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ cup pecans, roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup dark brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter


For the Filling

  1. Set oven rack to the center position. Preheat to 375ºF.
  2. Cut a shallow “X” into the bottom of the peaches, and then blanch in boiling water for 15 seconds. Transfer peaches to a large bowl of ice water. Once cooled, peel the peaches with your fingertips. Cut peaches into ¾-inch thick slices. Alternatively, using a peeler, gently peel the peaches then cut into slices.
  3. In a large bowl combine sliced peaches and ⅓ cup granulated sugar. Allow peaches to sit and macerate for 30 minutes.
  4. Drain the liquid from the peaches into a bowl, and reserve ¼ cup of the juices.
  5. In a small bowl whisk together the ¼ cup of peach juice, cornstarch, lemon juice, ¼ teaspoon cinnamon, ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg, ⅛ teaspoon ginger, and ⅛ teaspoon salt. Combine with peaches.
  6. Lightly butter an 8 by 8-inch baking dish. Add peach filling, spreading evenly in the pan.

Crisp Topping

  1. In a small bowl mix together the flour, rolled oats, pecans, brown sugar, ¼ teaspoon cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon ginger, and ⅛ teaspoon nutmeg.
  2. Cut butter into small ¼-inch pieces and add to the flour mixture. Use your fingers to cut the butter into the dry ingredients, pressing together to create large pebble-shaped pieces of crisp topping, about the size of a dime.
  3. Evenly sprinkle the crisp topping over the peaches.
  4. Bake until the topping is golden brown and crisp, 30 to 35 minutes.
  5. Wait for 30 to 60 minutes before serving.
  6. Add warm peach crisp to serving bowls and top with vanilla ice cream.
