Ingredients

  • 2 lbs fresh peaches
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp spiced rum
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 standard pie crust
  • 1 tbsp heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp turbinado sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Cut the peaches into quarters, then cut the quarters into quarters, for a total of 16 slices per peach.
  • Toss the peaches in a big mixing bowl with the brown sugar, cinnamon, spiced rum, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and flour. Set this mixture aside.
  • Roll the pie crust out into a big circle, about 12 inches in diameter. Don’t worry if it’s not a perfect circle.
  • Transfer the pie crust onto a rimmed baking sheet.
  • Dump the peaches, along with any of the liquid in the bowl, onto the center of the rolled out pie crust, leaving a 2 inch rim on all sides of the peaches.
  • Distribute the peaches as necessary to form into a relatively flat layer (it’s okay to have the peaches piled up on top of each other).
  • Fold the sides of the pie crust up and over the peaches, then brush the crust with heavy cream.
  • Sprinkle turbinado sugar all over the heavy cream brushed pie crust.
  • Bake the crostata for about 40 minutes until the edges are golden brown and the peaches are bubbling. Serve warm with a big scoop of ice cream, if desired. Enjoy!
