In a word-EXCELLENT. This is a first class dessert. The crust is chewy at the edges. I baked it for 42 minutes. I used 6 peeled peaches and a 2 1/2 quart casserole. I will certainly make this again. It is very very tasty, as well as being easy to make. Thanks Inez.

This was great, the whole family enjoyed it. I popped it back in the oven to warm it up a bit before serving and scooped a little french vanilla ice cream on top, and voila - a hit! The only thing I might adjust in the future is the lemon rind. I grated fresh so maybe I should have used a bit less.

What an excellent peach cobbler! I have been searching for a cobbler recipe that is sweet and has a crunchy/chewy topping and I hit the motherlode with this recipe. The touch of cinnamon and nutmeg is a perfect compliment to the peaches. It took 6 average size peaches to yield 6 cups of sliced peaches. I didn't have fresh lemon peel so I used dried lemon peel. The only change that I made to this recipe was that I added an extra 1/4 cup brown sugar and 2 Tablespoons of flour to the topping that is sprinkled on top of the peaches (wanted to make sure the peaches were sweet enough). I'm thinking that this recipe would also work rather nicely with apples which will be my next venture with your cobbler recipe. Thanks Inez!

Yummy! I suck at cooking and I was able to make something of it. I used two small eggs for the topping and sprinkled extra cinnamon on top. The crust was still crisp when reheated. This recipe is a keeper!

DELICIOUS, and very quickly made. I found that it was OK to use sliced canned or home canned peaches if it is all I have easily available. Still delicious, but I reduce the amount of sugar in this case.

We had this excellent peach crumble for dessert tonight. It turned out perfect!! It was done perfectly at 35 minutes for me. My daughter kept asking what was smelling so great in the kitchen. I followed the recipe exactly and I wouldn't change a thing when I make it again. Thanks, MissNezz, for a wonderful recipe that I will be making again for sure.

This was a great crumble! The topping especially was wonderful. I had a variety of summer fruits to use up so I made this with peaches, nectarines, apricots, and pluots. I changed the topping slightly: added 3/4 cup of oatmeal (not instant), 1/2 cup chopped pecans, and changed the nutmeg to 1/8 tsp. nutmeg + 1/8 tsp. cinnamon. I might omit the nutmeg entirely next time, but that's just personal preference. The blend of flavors was great. Thanks for such a wonderful recipe! It'll definitely be added to our family favorites.

This is the 2nd crumble recipe I have made in the last 2 weeks, both using an egg and both using melted butter over the top. (A first for me) From now on, it will be the only way! We loved the crunchy topping and was a nice change from the usual apple crumble. I scaled this for 4 servings. Thanks Inez!

This was AMAZING. I don't bake, almost ever, and I was hesitant to try this with the fresh peaches we had picked from the local orchard. It came out incredible! We put some vanilla ice cream on top. The crumble is what makes it-chewy and crunchy with just the right amount of sweet. I really like the lemon in it. I would put that crumble topping on pretty much anything-I'll definitely be trying this again when apple picking season rolls around...Thank you for the recipe!

Yumminess!! The best and most perfect looking crumble ever. I changed flour to 3/4 cup and 3/4 cup whole oats.
1/2 cup white sugar & 1/2 cup brown sugar. TO DYE FOR!! Fresh local peaches probably take it over the top.
