Prep: 35 minutes
Total: 1 hour 10 minutes
Serves: 6 to 8
FOR THE TOPPING
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup canola oil
2 tablespoons water
1/3 cup coarsely chopped almonds
FOR THE FILLING
3 1/2 pounds ripe peaches (about 11 medium peaches)
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
For the topping: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees with rack in the middle position. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Stir in oil and water until blended. Stir in almonds and set aside.
For the filling: In a large saucepan of boiling water, working in batches, blanch peaches for 1 minute. Remove them and transfer to a bowl of cold water. When cool enough to handle, peel off skin. Halve, pit, and cut peaches into 1/2-inch wedges.
In a medium bowl, mix together peaches, lemon juice, flour, and sugar. Place filling in an 8-inch square baking pan. Sprinkle topping evenly over peaches. Bake until the topping turns a deep, golden brown and the filling is bubbling around the edges, 30 to 35 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature with vanilla sorbet.
