Perfect Peach Crumble Topped with Vanilla Ice Cream

Beautiful ripe peaches are everywhere as the summer comes to a close, meaning its time to bake them into a splendid dessert! My perfect peach crumble recipe gets a little creative with the topping, but stays traditional with vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!


August is peach month, with beautiful ripe peaches coming to market in New England and across the country. The fruit has always been a favorite of my family, from sliced peaches topped with yogurt and granola, to elaborate peach pies, tarts, cakes, cobblers and peach crumble. The list of amazing peach desserts seems endless, but this recipe was always their first choice.

There are so many great choices of how to bake your delicious summer fruit to delight your family and friends. This particular recipe is a crumble, which differs significantly from a cobbler. The traditional cobbler has a biscuit topping, while the peach crumble has a topping of loose ingredients which are combined and placed on top of the fruit. Both are delicious, but the crumble offers more room for creativity. No matter which you choose, don’t forget to serve with rich vanilla ice cream!
