Just Peachy

Unfortunately, Summer is coming to an end. I picked these peaches up at the market this past Saturday, but I have a feeling these may very well be the last of the bunch.

Sure, it is definitely thrilling to think about fall baking, all of the apples and pumpkins and the cinnamon aroma that will take over your kitchen,but for now, we must stay loyal to the peaches.

This recipe, is a simple mixture of a few different recipes I have tried; peach kuchen, peach crisp, and peach cobbler. Sure, I could mix the names together and form some ridiculous title, but for now, we’ll call it Just Peachy. I’ve only used 5 basic ingredients here. This dish isn’t incredibly sweet due to the sugar content, mainly because I like to let the sweet peaches do all the work. 🙂

You’ll need…

For the crust:

1/2 C Whole Wheat Flour

1/4 C Light Brown Sugar

5 Tbsp Unsalted Butter

For the filling:

4-6 peaches (blanched, peeled, and sliced)

2 Tbsp Whole Wheat Flour

1/2 C Light Brown Sugar

1 Tsp Cinnamon

For the topping:

3 Tbsp Unsalted Butter

1/2 C Whole Wheat Flour

1/4 C Light Brown Sugar

1/2 Tsp Cinnamon

Prepare the crust:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Mix the flour and brown sugar together, cut in the butter with a fork or pastry blender. Pat the mixture into the bottom of an 8X8 pan, covering the entire surface. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes.

Prepare the filling:

Simply stir all ingredients together. Pour on top of the crust when hot out of the oven.

Prepare the topping:

Just like the crust, mix the flour and brown sugar, cut in the butter. This mixture will be much more crumbly than the crust. Sprinkle the topping over the peach filling, covering the entire pan.

Bake for 30 minutes. Serve warm or cold, whichever you like.

Serves 9-12, depending on your sweet tooth.

Oh, and for those of you health nuts, 1/12 of the dish serves up 185 calories.
