Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Spray a small 9 X 9 cake pan with baking spray or cover with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a bowl, add peaches, white sugar, and cinnamon. Toss together to mix well.
  • Mix softened butter, oats, flour, walnuts and cinnamon in a small bowl, until large crumbs form. A pastry cutter or potato masher helps make quick work of this.
  • Set aside about 2 cups of the mixture, this doesn’t have to be exact.
  • Spread the remaining mixture onto the bottom of the prepared pan and press lightly. Use part of the remaining crumbs if necessary to form a uniform crust.
  • Drain the peaches. Add vanilla and stir, mixing well. Sprinkle the peaches with cornstarch stir again until incorporated.
  • Arrange peaches over the crust.
  • Drizzle any remaining cornstarch infused liquid over the peaches.
  • Sprinkle remaining oat mix over the peach layer. It’s OK if all the peaches are not covered.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the top begins to turn golden brown.

Notes

Thaw frozen peaches before using.  Drain canned peaches before using.
Additional cinnamon can be added to the crumb mixture during the mixing for extra cinnamon flavor.
Add 1/4 teaspoon of salt the crumb mixture if using unsalted butter.
