Perhaps The Last Fruits Of Summer



Peach Cobbler with Olive Oil Crumble - Serves 8

Ingredients

  • 4 large peaches, peeled and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped ginger
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup almond meal
  • 2/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup olive oil

Cooking Directions

  1. 1. In a large bowl, toss the peaches with the ginger, sugar, cornstarch, vanilla, salt, lemon zest and pumpkin pie spice. Drizzle the milk on top and toss again to combine well.
  2. 2. Slide the peach mixture into a 9 inch x 12 inch baking dish. Randomly spread the cubes of butter over the peaches. Set aside.
  3. 3. In the bowl of a food processor, blend the flour, almond meal, oats and cinnamon. As the machine runs, slowly drizzle all of the olive oil into the dry mixture until the topping begins to clump together.
  4. 4. Evenly sprinkle the crumble topping over the peaches. Bake the cobbler in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until the filling begins to bubble, and the topping turns golden brown. Allow to cool slightly before serving.

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt, divided
