Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius).
  2. In a 9×13-inch baking dish or a 10″ to 12″ cast iron skillet, combine the sliced peaches, bourbon, orange juice, orange zest, vanilla extract, packed brown sugar, and ground cinnamon. Mix thoroughly to ensure the peaches are well coated.
  3. Sprinkle the cornstarch over the mixture and toss again to combine. Set aside while you prepare the crisp topping.
  4. For the Pecan Crisp Topping:
    • Cut the butter into cubes and set it aside.
    • In a large bowl, combine the old-fashioned oats, finely chopped pecans, both sugars, ground cinnamon, and optional ground cardamom.
    • Add the cubed butter and, using two forks or a pastry blender, cut the butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  5. Evenly spread the crisp topping over the peach mixture in the baking dish.
  6. Place the dish in the preheated oven and bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the peaches start to bubble and release their juices, and the topping turns golden brown.
  7. Allow the crisp to cool slightly for about 15 minutes before serving. For an extra treat, serve it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Notes

  • You can adjust the amount of bourbon to your preference, but it adds a delightful depth of flavor to the dessert.
  • Feel free to customize the crisp topping with additional spices or nuts for a unique twist.

FAQs

Q1: Can I use frozen peaches instead of fresh ones? A: While fresh peaches are recommended for the best flavor and texture, you can use frozen peaches in a pinch. Just be sure to thaw and drain them before use.

Q2: What can I substitute for bourbon in this recipe? A: If you prefer not to use alcohol, you can replace bourbon with apple juice or peach nectar for a similar fruity flavor.

Q3: Is it necessary to use cardamom in the topping? A: No, cardamom is optional and can be omitted if you don’t have it on hand. The crisp will still be delicious without it.
