3 C diced peaches

2 C diced strawberries

2 T lemon juice

1/2 C all-purpose flour

1 t cornstarch

1 C granulated sugar

1/4 t salt

1/2 t ground cinnamon

1/4 t ground nutmeg


3 C all-purpose flour

1 C granulated sugar

1 t baking powder

1/4 t salt

1/4 t cinnamon

1 C cold unsalted butter, cubed

1 egg, lightly beaten

1/2 t vanilla extract

cinnamon and sugar for sprinkling

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 9×13-inch baking pan with cooking spray or coat with parchment paper and set aside.

To make peach-strawberry filling: combine diced peaches in a large bowl with lemon juice and mix gently.

In a separate bowl, whisk the flour, cornstarch, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg together. Pour over the peaches and carefully fold together to combine.

To make the dough: in a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon. Throw them into a mixer with a paddle attachment with cubed cold butter. Mix together until a loose powder forms. Add vanilla and egg and mix until crumbles form. Press half the dough into the prepared pan.

Spread the peach-strawberry mixture evenly over the bottom crust, then crumble the remaining dough over the peach layer. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.

Bake for 45 minutes, or until the top is golden (mine needed about 4 minutes under the high broiler at the end to seal the deal). Cool completely on a wire rack, then cut into squares to serve.

*serve with vanilla bean ice cream if desired, or as is.
