Directions

  1. FOR THE TOPPING: Preheat the oven to 375F, with the rack in the middle position.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Stir in oil and water until blended. Topping will look llike clumpy wet sand. Stir in almonds and set aside.
  3. FOR THE FILLING: In a large saucepan of boiling water, working batches , blanch peaches for 1 minute. Remove them with a slotted spoon and transfer to a bowl of cold water. When cold enough to handle, peel off skin, halve, pit and cut peaches into 1/2-inch wedges.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix together peaches, lemon juice, flour and sugar. Place filling in an 8-inch square baking pan. Sprinkle topping evenly over peaches. Bake until topping turns a deep, golden brown and the filling is bubbling around the edges, 30-35 minutes. Serve warm or at rooom temperature with vanilla ice cream, if desired.
