I love easy recipes and this is the easiest dessert I can make fast. Also its a great way to use up fruit that is about to go off and doesnt look good but still tastes good. We have so much fruit that I have to think up a dozen ways to cook it and we have a plethora of lemons too. So this is a way to throw something together on a Sunday morning to serve with brunch or even as part of a Sunday afternoon tea. Enjoy!
8 large Peaches and Nectarines 4 each
I cup of flour
I cup of sugar
I cup of almonds sliced
Juice of one lemon
Two extra tablespoons of sugar
I tsp of salt
One and half sticks of cold non salted butter
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Heat the oven to 400. Put the almonds, salt, flour and sugar into a Cuisinart and pulse until all mixed and until it resembles rough sand. Add the butter cut into small cubes and pulse until mixed. Slice the nectarines and peaches and discard their pits. I keep the skins on. Add the juice of one lemon and the two tablespoons of sugar and mix well. Add to a large baking dish. Pour the flour mixture on top of the fruit, and put in the oven to bake for 30 minutes or until light brown on top and crunchy. Serve with Vanilla ice cream – yummy!
