Very Good! I halved the recipe and used white donut peaches from my tree and bourbon. This year my peaches turned out a little starchy and not as sweet and this recipe made them taste 100 times better.
This is wonderful! I made it for a dinner party and received many compliments. My 1/2" clumps turned out to be 1/2" flat circles. It gave a beautiful look to the topping. I just pressed small portions of the topping mix between my fingers and placed them on top of the peaches until it was completely covered.
