Peach Pecan Crisp with Gluten Free Substitutions

Peach Pecan Crisp with Gluten Free Substitutions

Ingredients

  • Filling
  • 5 cups thinly sliced peaches (about 5-6 medium peaches)1
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (GF use Domata)
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Topping
  • 3/4 cup light or dark brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour (GF use Domata)
  • 2/3 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (or quick oats) (GF use GF oats)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted pecans (chopped or halved)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • optional but encouraged: vanilla ice cream for serving

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C). Lightly grease an 8 or 9-inch baking dish (circle or square). Set aside.
  2. Make the filling: Combine peaches with the flour, sugar, salt, and vanilla in a large bowl. Toss gently until combine. Spoon into prepared baking dish.
  3. Make the topping: Whisk the brown sugar, flour, oats, cinnamon, salt, and pecans together. Make sure to get out all those brown sugar lumps. Add the butter and stir with a rubber spatula or a wooden spoon to break up the butter until the mixture is crumbly. (A fork works for this too!) Evenly sprinkle topping over peaches.
  4. Bake for 40-45 minutes until the topping is golden brown and the peach juice is bubbling on the edges. Remove from the oven, place on a wire rack, and allow to cool slightly before serving. Serve warm, room temperature, or cold. Cover leftovers and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  5. Make ahead tip: Baked crisp freezes well for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator, then warm in a 350°F (177°C) for 20 minutes or until heated through. I do not suggest preparing the crisp and storing it, unbaked, in the refrigerator. The topping will get soggy. You can, however, prepare the crisp through step 3 and freeze for up to 3 months. Allow to thaw overnight in the refrigerator, then continue with step 4.
