Transition from summer to fall with the perfect combination of flavors: tender, juicy peaches topped with a crunchy cinnamon streusel. These baked peaches are delicious when paired with ice cream, but also make breakfast feel extra special when served alongside yogurt.
First, make the streusel. In a large bowl, stir together the brown sugar, oats, flour, cinnamon and salt.
Add the butter. Use two forks or a pastry blender to cut the butter into the dry ingredients, until butter is incorporated, and streusel is crumbly.
Stir in the chopped pecans.
Scoop out the pit plus a little extra, to create a hole for the streusel.
Place the peaches skin side down in a baking dish.
Fill each peach with streusel, mounding it on top. Bake at 350°F for 35-45 minutes, until peaches are fork tender.
Top with ice cream for dessert or serve alongside yogurt for a delicious breakfast.
