Another year of living.
Here's what I did:
preheat oven 425
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 stick of unsalted butter
Mix dry ingredients.
Crumble in a stick of unsalted butter.
Turn into a square baking dish. Moosh around with the heel of your hand (there's some french word for it). Pricker it with a fork. Bake for 15 minutes (or as long as it takes you to peel and cut the peaches).
I used about 9 small peaches from our tree, peeled and sliced and dumped into the bowl I used for the shortbread (w/o washing). Add a couple teaspoons of sugar and some cinnamon and a capful of vanilla. and a sprinkle of salt. I probably would have added lemon zest if I'd had any. Mix. Pour on top of crust.
1/2 cup flour
1 cup old fashioned oats
capful of vanilla
Cinnamon and sugar (I have it premixed, so I just sprinkled some on)
1/4 cup brown sugar
dash of salt
4 TBL butter
(Nuts would be good but I didn't have any)
This was all made in the same bowl, too. Just mix it all together with your hands. Crumble it on top of the peaches.
Place on a cookie sheet in the oven. Immediately turn oven down to 375.
Panic that it's gonna take too long. Turn on convection fan. Cook 'til you can't wait any more. Serve. Ice cream or whipped cream or, heck, even cream, would have been good but I didn't have any.
