3 lbs ripe but firm peaches (6-7), peeled, pitted, and sliced into 3/4″ wedges.
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
pinch of cinnamon
pinch of ground nutmeg
1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
6 tablespoons cold butter
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Serve with vanilla or peach ice cream
Preheat oven to 350 F.
For peach filling, gently combine peaches and sugar in a large bowl and let stand for 30 minutes, tossing occasionally. Drain peaches in a colander set over a large bowl, reserving the peach juices. Whisk 1/4 cup of the drained peach juice, cornstarch, lemon juice, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg together in small bowl. (Save the rest of the excess peach juice in a smoothie or reduce over medium heat until concentrated and serve with the peach crisp )
Toss juice mixture with peaches and transfer to an 8 or 9 inch square pan that’s been buttered or sprayed with cooking spray.
For topping, combine oats, brown sugar, flour, nutmeg, and cinnamon and either grate the cold butter with a large-hole cheese grater, or cut it into small cubes and use your fingers to crumble the mixture together. Sprinkle topping evenly over pan.
Bake for about 30 minutes. The topping should look golden brown, crisp, and bubbly around the corners. Let cool to lukewarm before serving. Spoon over ice cream.
