Almond Crisp Peaches


4 ripe peaches
1/3 cup almonds
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. sea salt
3 tablespoons cold butter, cubed

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Halve peaches and remove pits. Place fruit cut side up in baking dish. In a food processor, grind almonds and sugar together until coarsely ground. Add oats, cinnamon and salt then butter, pulsing the machine until the ingredients are just blended. Spoon the almond mixture into the center of each peach, then press it flat, as if icing the tops of the peaches with it. Bake for 45 minutes or until the top is brown and crisp and you can easily slice through the fruit with a fork or spoon.

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of warm maple syrup.

It’s a great day at the Cottage!
