Peach Crumble

I’m often guilty of getting ahead of myself. As much as I love summer, by the beginning of August I start dreaming up fall inspired recipes featuring the flavors of cinnamon, pumpkin and apples. But because of these advanced recipe day dreams, I often skip right over the wonderful baking ingredients of summer. Like fresh, perfectly sweet peaches. Well this year I vowed to take advantage of summer’s bounty of fresh fruit. But of course…here it is Labor Day weekend and I’m just sharing my first summer fruit recipe. Better late than never, I suppose. This delicious Peach Crumble is the perfect dessert to serve at your Labor Day barbeque, as it is incredibly simple to prepare and can be doubled and tripled effortlessly. So please share this delicious summer recipe with the ones you love…because pumpkin season will be upon us before we know it!
