Ingredients

For the Crumble (for both crust and topping)

  • 1 cup pecans
  • ½ cup 1 stick very cold unsalted butter
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 pinch salt
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup rolled oats

For the Peach Filling

  • 3-4 large ripe peaches
  • ¾ cup peach preserves
  • Grated zest of 1 orange
  • Vanilla ice cream for serving

Instructions

  • Spray the inside of a 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray (or rub with butter). Set aside
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Pulse the pecans in a food processor until chopped into smallish pieces (but not ground). Transfer to a large bowl. Cut the butter into 1/2-inch pieces, place it in the food processor with the flour and a pinch of salt and pulse a couple times.
  • Add the brown sugar and continue to pulse until the butter pieces are pea-sized. Add to the bowl with the pecans along with the oats and use your hands to mix everything together.
  • Put half the streusel mixture into the bottom of the springform pan and spread it out evenly in a 1/2-inch layer.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes or until just slightly brown on top.

Prepare the Fruit:

  • While the bottom crust is baking, slice the fruit and toss it with the jam and orange zest.
  • Once the crust is baked, remove it from the oven and add the fruit, arranging it in an even layer about 1-1/2 inches deep. Place the remaining streusel on top, spreading it out evenly. Compress the cobbler slightly by pressing down with a rubber spatula.
  • Bake for 45 minutes. Cool about 10-15 minutes, then carefully remove the sides of the springform pan. The cobbler should stand on its own and you can cut it like a cake.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature, accompanied by vanilla ice cream. We preferred it warm.
