Martha's Peach Crumble

From: Mad About Martha

I would say this probably makes about 6 servings. I thought it was really delicious, but I also think that next time I might cut back on the butter and sugar for the topping - there was quite a bit of topping and, while it was really delicious, it would still be good with a bit less.

8 ripe peaches, pitted and sliced (I used 10 because my peaches were smallish)
Juice of 1 lemon
Large pinch of ground cinnamon
Large pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/4 pound (1 stick) unsalted butter, chilled and cut into thin pieces
1/4 cup quick-cooking oats (I used old-fashioned and it was fine)
Heavy cream (optional) (I served with vanilla yogurt)

Preheat the oven to 375F.

Arrange the peach slices in a buttered shallow baking dish. Sprinkle with the lemon juice, cinnamon and nutmeg.

In a small bowl, combine the flour and brown sugar. With your fingers, blend the butter into the flour-sugar mixture until it resembles coarse meal. Stir in the oats and sprinkle the mixture on top of the sliced peaches. Bake until the peaches are soft and the topping is brown, about 25 minutes.

Serve warm with fresh or whipped cream, if desired. [or ice cream or yogurt]
