Recipe: Peaches N' Cream Crumble

Summer is over...September is here. I'm really excited for what Autumn will bring! As I mentioned in my previous post, we incorporated quite a bit of summer's sweet fresh fruit into many dishes in the past few months.  Peaches are easy to find all year round whether fresh or canned so this dish will make for the perfect desert any time. This peaches n cream crumble is easy to throw together in a short amount of time if needed and is a really delicious addition to any meal. 


I love peaches. Fresh Slices, Canned Peaches in Syrup, Grilled Peaches topping a salad, it's my most favored fruit of all. This was a nice treat to end a meal and the crumble, syrup and cream really added something nice to this lovely fruit. 
The recipe can be found below:


Peaches "N" Cream Crumble:
Ingredients:
Crumble:
1 Cup Flour
2 Tablespoons Melted Butter
2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
1/2 Tsp. Salt
Peaches and Syrup:
4 Peaches Sliced and Cores Reserved
2 Cups Water
1 Tsp. Cinnamon
1 Tsp. White Cooking Wine
1/2 Cup Mixed Brown Sugar and Regular White Sugar
Cream:
Small Sized Carton (1/2 Pint) Whipping Cream
1/2 Tsp. Vanilla
2 Tablespoons Sugar
Method:
1. Start by preparing the crumble. Take two tablespoons of cold butter and place it in an oven safe dish (carefully, keeping an eye all the time that it doesn't burn) in a toaster, oven, microwave or over a pot of boiling water.  
2. Place the flour in a medium mixing bowl and pour the melted butter in with it. Add the brown sugar and salt and mix all of the ingredients by hand until it becomes a crumbly combined mixture.
3. Pour the mixture (still crumbled)  in a greased baking pan and bake on 350 for about 15 minutes or until it is a light brown and has formed a nice crumble. 
4. In the meantime, get started on the peaches and their syrup- bring the two cups of water to a boil. Add the peach cores and white cooking wine. Lower the flame to medium allowing it to bubble and reduce quite a bit, at the same time letting the alcohol cook out.
5. Add the sugar mix and cinnamon. Stir all the ingredients over a low flame until a syrup forms. Allow the syrup to cool. Remove the peach cores and discard. Once the syrup has cooled quite a bit add the peach slices to the syrup.
6. For the cream, place the whipping cream, vanilla and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer with the whisk attachment. Turn the mixer on and whisk for about 2 minutes or until the cream mixture has formed soft peaks. This can be done in a regular mixing bowl with a whisk but is more difficult and takes more time.
7. Now assemble the peaches and cream crumble. Place quite a bit of the cream in the bottom of a glass. Top it with the peaches along with about two tablespoons of their syrup and top that with the crumble.
Enjoy the recipe!
