Gluten Free Spiced Peach Crisp ~ just a couple of little tweaks makes a classic peach crisp gluten free and so much tastier.  The crumble topping is made with almond meal and rolled oats, spiced up with cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, nutmeg, and cinnamon.  Ice cream is not optional.

These days the supermarket looks just like a farm stand and there are so many choices to make I get a little overwhelmed.  My response is usually to grab some of everything and figure out the details later.  My kitchen and dining room are filled with bowls of various fruits and tomatoes.  Up today is how I dealt with the growing stack 0f peaches.

You might call it gorging, I prefer the term celebrating…when fruit is this good and this plentiful it would be a sin not to make the most of it.  That means peaches for breakfast, peaches for lunch, peaches for dinner, and of course peaches for dessert!

I gave this crisp a little spicy personality to help it stand out in the sea of peach recipes we’re making this month.  Spices that are normally reserved for fall and winter baking work really well with stone fruit, especially peaches.

Sometimes dessert comes out of the oven so perfect that you just have to dispense with propriety and dig right in.  I won’t judge if you simply hand out big spoons and let everyone go at it, but don’t forget to dot the molten surface with scoops of vanilla ice cream first.

A sturdy steel roasting pan doubles as a nice vessel for crumbles and crisps.  Anywhere from 9 to 14 inches long is a good size.


 

Crisps, Crumbles, and Cobblers, oh my! ~ when you want dessert in a hurry you can’t beat ’em.  Here are a few more to bake up ~

Easy Pear Crisp

This easy crisp will have a different personality depending on what variety of pears you use, and there’ll be lots of them in the supermarket from August through December.

Summer Jumble Fruit Crumble

When you’ve got a little of this and a little of that lying around, this is your dessert.  Mix fresh and frozen, too!

Peach Cobbler with Cinnamon Swirl Biscuits

This cobbler was one of the standout recipes of the summer for us here at tvfgi…we’ll be making it again and again, and when peaches are gone, we’ll move on to apples.

Gluten Free Spiced Peach Crisp

Ingredients

  • 7-8 peaches
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
    topping
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats (regular or quick cooking is fine)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp ground allspice
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground nutmeg
  • 6 Tbsp cold unsalted butter, cut in small pieces

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F
  2. Peel your peaches and slice them into a bowl. Toss with the lemon juice and cornstarch and set aside.
  3. Put the topping ingredients into a bowl and mix it up with your hands, breaking apart the bits of cold butter with your fingers until the mixture has a coarse crumb texture.
  4. Spread the peaches into the bottom of an oval gratin dish (mine was 12 inches long.) Crumble the topping over them.
  5. Bake for about 30 minutes, or until bubbling and browned on top. Tent with foil toward the end of baking if the topping is getting too brown. Let cool 15 minuted before digging in.

Make this gluten free spiced peach crisp your own ~

  • Make it nut free by subbing in oat flour or all purpose flour for the almond meal.
  • Make it vegan ~ use coconut oil, vegan butter, or a mixture, instead of butter.
  • Make it grain free ~ just leave out the oats.  For added texture try chopped nuts or coconut.
  • Make it ahead ~ assemble the dessert beforehand and pop it in the oven about 45 minutes before you want to serve it.  If it’s been refrigerated, leave it out for 30 minutes on the counter before baking.

    Love summer fruits! And they’re terrific in baked desserts. Can never decide if I prefer a crisp or a cobbler — so I usually end up making both. :-) This looks terrific — thanks.

    This is certainly something to celebrate! I’ve got bowls of fresh fruits all over the kitchen too – and just finished using up all our peaches. They are magnificent this time of year. And I can’t think of a more perfect way to enjoy them than in this gorgeous crisp. Yes with ice cream please!
