Bourbon Peach Crisp with Pecan Streusel
If there’s one fruit that’s at the heart and soul of summer, it’s peaches. Biting into the soft flesh is like encountering a giant wave of flavorful juiciness. And when they’re ripe and fragrant, time is of the essence, because this fleeting season will come and go before you know it. No matter how contemporary the world gets, old-fashioned desserts, like peach crisps, are here to stay. With a bourbon-enhanced peach filling and a crunchy, buttery topping, this crisp will be a hit at any summer gathering.
FOR THE STREUSEL, WHISK:
FOR THE FILLING, COMBINE:
Preheat oven to 375°.
For the streusel, whisk together flour, brown sugar, salt, and nutmeg in a bowl. Cut butter into flour mixture using a pastry blender until butter is pea-sized. Mix in oats and pecans until thoroughly combined; chill.
For the filling, combine peaches and sugar in a bowl.
Combine bourbon, lemon juice, and vanilla; whisk in cornstarch until dissolved and stir into peach mixture. Transfer filling to a 9x13-inch (3-qt.) baking dish.
Top filling with streusel and bake crisp until filling is bubbly and streusel is brown, 35–40 minutes; let rest on a rack 30 minutes. Serve crisp with whipped cream.
