Grilled Peach Crumble

The concept of grilling is new to my home. Aaron and I are learning, and burning, together. The latest grill-fail was kebabs: uneven cuts of vegetables and chicken over a heap of scorching coals.

Surprisingly, we still have eyebrows.

However, the fire was not wasted. I was able to grill some sweet peaches for dessert. Grilling adds depth and interest to a Summer dessert. The heat carmelizes the fruits’ natural sugars. Bake a nutty crumble over it and crown with ice cream for a sweet finale to a summer barbeque.

(You can follow this recipe with almost any fruit– I recommend peaches, apples, plums, or even halved strawberries.)

Grilled Peach Crumble


6 medium peaches, halved

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 Tablespoons lemon juice

2 Tablespoons cinnamon

Combine brown sugar, lemon juice and cinnamon. Toss with halved peaches.

Grill 3 minutes per side.


1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup pecans

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 Tablespoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 stick unsalted butter, cold

Mix flour, oats, pecans, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt.

Using beaters or food processor, combine butter with dry mixture until pea-size balls form.

Cover peaches with crumble.

Bake at 350* for 40 to 45 minutes.

Cool and top with vanilla ice cream.
