Recipe of the week: Baked Peach Crisp

Summer is here and peaches are definitely in season! Here is a simple but delicious recipe- that goes well with summer nights eating alfresco. Serves 6!


3 large Peaches halved and pitted
5 Vanilla wafer cookies (I recommend the Trader Joes' Ultimate Vanilla wafer cookie)
3 tablespoons of almonds
2 large tablespoons of flour
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
3 tablespoons of chilled unsalted butter
Butter/Canola Oil spray
Ice cream or cool whip


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Combine cookies, almonds, flour, sugar, into food processor. Using the pulse button, process until the cookies have broken up into small pieces. Add the butter (cut into very small cubes) and pulse again, until it creates moist clumps.

Butter or spray a baking dish (roughly 11 x 7 x 3). Place peach halves into baking dish (cut side up). Spread crumble on each peach, lightly packing it down. Bake peaches in the oven for 40 minutes, or until peaches are tender and crust is a golden brown. Let cool for 5 minutes.

Place each peach half in a separate dish. Serve with 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream or cool whip.
