Ingredients

Peach Filling

  • 3 pounds peaches skinned and sliced into 3/4-inch sliced
  • 6 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Crisp Topping

  • 1 stick 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped nuts walnuts or pecans
  • 1/2 cup quick oats

Instructions

Peach Filling 

  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Grease a 9×12 casserole, or a 2-quart casserole or soufflé dish.
  • Slice fruit and put it into a large bowl. Add the rest of the filling ingredients to the fruit and gently toss to incorporate peaches and flour mixture. Place fruit in the bottom of the prepared pan. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, mix flour, sugar, salt, and spices. Add cut-up butter, and using a pastry cutter, incorporate dries with butter until you get a crumbly concoction where the butter is reduced to small pea-sized bits. Using a fork, stir in chopped nuts and oats.
  • Sprinkle crumb topping mixture evenly over fruit and pat down slightly with a spatula.
  • Bake for about 30 minutes, or until fruit is beginning to bubble up along the sides and the topping is golden brown and getting crispy.

Notes

*You can prepare the entire crisp (filling and topping) ahead of time and freeze unbaked. If frozen, increase baking time by about 10 minutes.
