Imagine the aroma of fresh peaches baked with a hint of bourbon, under a crunchy pecan topping, wafting through your kitchen. This Bourbon Pecan Peach Crisp is not just a dessert; it’s a celebration of flavors. The sweet juiciness of the peaches combined with the deep, smoky hint of bourbon and the nutty crunch of pecans create a harmony that’s hard to resist. Perfect for summer evenings or a cozy autumn night, this dessert is versatile and utterly delicious!


To make this mouth-watering dessert, you’ll need:

  • Peaches: 6 large, ripe peaches, peeled and sliced
  • Bourbon: 1/4 cup, for that deep, oaky flavor
  • Brown Sugar: 3/4 cup, divided
  • Ground Cinnamon: 1/2 teaspoon
  • Salt: A pinch, to enhance the flavors
  • Cornstarch: 1 tablespoon, to thicken the peach juices
  • For the Topping:
    • Rolled Oats: 1 cup
    • Chopped Pecans: 1/2 cup
    • All-purpose Flour: 1/2 cup
    • Cold Butter: 1/2 cup, diced
    • Bourbon: 1 tablespoon, for an extra kick

How to Make Bourbon Pecan Peach Crisp

  1. Preheat the Oven: Set your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Prepare the Peaches: In a large bowl, toss the sliced peaches with 1/4 cup bourbon, 1/4 cup brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, and cornstarch. Ensure the peaches are evenly coated.
  3. Make the Topping: In another bowl, combine the oats, pecans, flour, and the remaining 1/2 cup of brown sugar. Work the cold butter into the mixture using your fingers or a pastry cutter until it resembles coarse crumbs. Drizzle the tablespoon of bourbon and mix slightly.
  4. Assemble: Pour the peach mixture into a greased baking dish. Evenly sprinkle the crumb topping over the peaches.
  5. Bake: Place in the oven and bake for about 45 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and the peach filling is bubbling.
  6. Serve: Let it cool slightly before serving. It pairs wonderfully with vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream!

Helpful Tips

  • Juicy Peaches: If your peaches are extra juicy, add an additional tablespoon of cornstarch to prevent the filling from becoming too runny.
  • Browning the Topping: To prevent the topping from browning too quickly, you can cover the dish with aluminum foil halfway through the baking process.


  • Gluten-Free: Swap the all-purpose flour for your favorite gluten-free blend to accommodate dietary restrictions.
  • Non-Alcoholic: Replace the bourbon with apple juice or peach syrup if you prefer a non-alcoholic version.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use canned peaches?

Yes, canned peaches can be used, especially out of season. Just be sure to drain them well and perhaps cut back on the sugar, as they are often sweetened.

Can this dessert be made ahead?

Absolutely! Assemble the dish, cover it, and refrigerate. Bake it just before you are ready to serve for the best experience.

Storage Instructions

This crisp is best enjoyed fresh but can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the oven or microwave for a warm treat.
