Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. To make the peach mixture: combine the sugar and cornstarch in a large pan, pressing out the lumps.
  3. Mix in all the peaches, lemon juice, and butter; bring to a boil over high heat; cook and stir 1 minute, then set off the heat.
  4. To make the topping: combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, lemon zest, salt, and nutmeg in a big bowl; add in the butter and, using a pastry blender, cut in until the texture of coarse meal.
  5. Drizzle the milk over all and fork quickly just until a soft dough forms—no matter if a few floury specks show.
  6. **Alternative way to make the topping—add all the dry ingredients to a food processor, pulse briefly to combine; sprinkle the diced butter evenly on top and pulse until the texture of coarse meal; drizzle the milk over all, then pulse just enough to form a soft dough, 3-4 brisk zaps should do it.
  7. Scoop the peach mixture into an ungreased shallow 2 ½ quart casserole, spreading to the edge.
  8. Drop the topping by tablespoons on top, spacing evenly.
  9. Bake on the middle oven shelf until bubbly and golden brown, 30-35 minutes.
  10. Serve warm or at room temperature, topped if you like, with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
