Ginger Snap Peach Crumble.

This new idea for a peach crumble came about because a couple of days ago, I got an interesting email from Sharon, a regular reader of Rock Recipes who had an interesting request. Here it is:

“I don’t have a recipe to recommend, rather I think you’re the man to come up with one. Yesterday on my way to wash a fresh peach to eat, I filched a ginger snap out of the jar, so, when I took my first bite of the peach I still had the cookie residue/taste in my mouth ( my, doesn’t that sound appetizing… bear with me)… the combination of the ginger snap and peach was deeelicious.

I immediately thought what a good dessert combo, however , I have no talent for imagining how that combo could be put into a recipe… but knew you’d be the man who could. Love to see the result.”

Well Sharon your wish is my command and here is the final result. I’ve incorporated crushed ginger snaps into the crumble and kept the fresh peaches very uncomplicated to focus on their natural sweetness and flavour.

Fresh or frozen peaches both work well in this simple recipe idea.

Here in Canada, we eagerly await the peaches from southern Ontario which arrive every July. They eclipse any other peaches I’ve ever eaten in terms of sweet juiciness and pure intense peach flavour; truly my favourite fruit.

The wait is over again this year as these beautiful peaches have arrived in our local markets.

Ginger and peaches taste great together.

Truth be told, we are already on our second basket in only two days at our house. I wonder how long I can hold out before making a peach pie…oh lord peach pie!!! Bring on the peaches!

Total Time: 1 hour

Ginger Snap Peach Crumble - a perfect summer dessert! The flavors of ginger & peach go amazingly well together in this deliciously different peach crumble.

Ingredients

  • 8 medium sized peaches, peeled, pitted and cut in quarters.
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

For the Ginger Snap Crumble

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 30 small ginger snap cookies
  • 3/4 cup cold butter cut in cubes

Instructions

  1. Don't cut your peaches in small slices, chunks are better because they hold up to the heat and don't disintegrate into peach jam as they cook.
  2. Toss the peaches, honey, corn starch, salt, nutmeg and vanilla extract together and spread evenly into the bottom of a 9x9 inch glass baking dish.

To prepare the Ginger Snap Crumble

  1. In a food processor pulse together the flour baking powder and ginger snaps until the cookies are broken up well.
  2. Pulse in the butter until the mixture resembles a coarse meal and holds together when a handful of crumb mixture is pressed together. Press the crumb mixture together into handfuls, then break chunks off of the balls and spread evenly over the top of the prepared peaches.
  3. Bake the crisp at 350 degrees F for approximately 35 - 40 minutes or until the top is well browned and the fruit is bubbling.
  4. Allow to cool for about 20 minutes before serving with whipped cream or some good quality vanilla ice cream.

I wish the site had a recipe box to save these wonderful recipes! I email them to myself, but my recipe folder contains so many from other sites and I would like Rock Recipes all in one nice easy-to-locate place..

I love the idea of a peach and gingersnap crumble. But I am thinking of grilling the peaches first then do the crumble

I'd try it without the honey, too, and serve it with yogurt. (trying to save calories; where possible. (grin)

Oh my goodness gracious. I tried this tonight for the first time. I was blown away by how much flavor the ginger snaps added. Next time I will do a touch less honey. I like the flavor of the peaches to come out just a little bit more. Definitely a winner!
