Ingredients

For the Topping:

  • ½ lbs. cold, unsalted butter cut into½ oz. flakes
  • 2 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups light brown sugar

For Peach Filling:

  • 8 fresh Idaho peaches
  • Sugar to taste
  • 1 Tbs. lemon juice
  • ½ cinnamon stick
  • 2 cloves
  • ½ tsp. grated fresh nutmeg

Instructions

For the Topping:

  1. Place flour and sugar in mixer and combine with a dough hook. Add the butter and run until coarse meal or just until the topping packs into a ball.

For Peach Filling:

  1. Slice fresh peeled and cored peaches and toss with the lemon juice. Place the cinnamon and cloves in a spice mill and grind to a fine powder. Toss the spice blend and the nutmeg then add enough sugar to leave the peaches still a bit tart (sometimes the peaches are so sweet you won’t even need to add sugar!). To Top: Pack filling into a baseball size ball and crumble over top leaving several large pieces in the crumble. Bake at 375 for 16-18 minutes or until the topping is golden brown.
