Topping Ingredients:

  • 1 c All-purpose flour
  • ¾ c Sugar, divided
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • ¼ c Heavy cream
  • ¼ c Water
  • 8 Tbsp Unsalted butter, very well chilled
  • 1 Egg white, beaten with water added
  • Optional, to serve:  Whipped cream or ice cream, of choice

Directions:

  1. Place the top oven rack in the center position and preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Add peaches, sugar, lemon juice, flour, salt, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla extract to a large bowl and toss to combine.
  3. Transfer to a greased 8” x 8” baking pan and spread into an even layer. Sprinkle brown sugar on top of the peach mixture before placing the pan in the preheated oven. Bake for 10 minutes.
  4. Add flour, ½ cup sugar, salt, and baking powder to a different bowl and stir to combine. Chop chilled butter into very small pieces with a sharp knife. Add to the bowl and combine with dry ingredients with your fingers until small pebble-sized pieces are formed.
  5. Add heavy cream and water to the flour mixture and stir with a fork until all the dry ingredients are moist and somewhat sticky. Do not overwork dough.
  6. Remove the baking pan from the oven and carefully spoon dough over the top, making sure the dough is the same thickness throughout. Leave spaces in between, as pictured, for a more rustic look.
  7. Return to the oven and bake for another 10-15 minutes, or until the topping begins to brown. Remove from the oven and brush the top with the egg white wash and sprinkle remaining sugar on top. Return to the oven to finish baking, another 10-15 minutes. Remove from the oven when the top is golden brown.
  8. Allow the pan to cool slightly before serving on its own or topped with whipped cream or ice cream. Enjoy!
