Summertime Peach Crumble

It’s peach season! And what better way to celebrate than by making a delicious peach dessert? This recipe is delicious. I could eat the crumble on its own―it is sweet (but not too sweet), crunchy (thanks to the pecans) and really well-balanced. This is the perfect summertime dessert! The recipe is loosely based on Minimalist Baker’s “Easy Peach Crisp”―I decided not to use any sugar (but substitute it for maple syrup instead) and added some extra goodness to the peach filling.

Why is life worth living? That’s a very good question. Well, there are certain things I guess that make it worthwhile. Like what? Okay, for me, I would say, dogs, post cards, cafés, hats (especially berets), Paris, stationary, soy lattes, Les Miserables, string lights, and barrettes.
