There is nothing more representative of the delicacies of the South than peaches and pecans. They are quintessentially Southern. This crisp is quick, delicious, and embraces the South at its best. You will love it.

Peach Pecan Crisp (inspired by Sally’s Baking Addiction)

The Filling:

  • 5 cups thinly sliced peaches
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

The Topping:

  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup quick oats
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup pecans, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

In a bowl, combine the peach filling, gently tossing so as not to crush the peaches.

In another bowl, combine the sugar, flower, oats, cinnamon, and salt. Using a fork, cut the butter into the dry ingredients until clumpy (much like pie crust). Stir in the pecans.

In a lightly greased 8×8 inch glass pan, add the peach filling. Sprinkle the topping over the peaches. Bake at 375 degrees until the filling is bubbly, about 35 minutes. Serves 6.
