Life is interesting. It's funny how we look at things differently. My Aunt and Uncle came up for a visit. We all sat around the table after a late lunch as we always do talking the time away. Our conversation ventured over to health concerns. My Uncle started talking about how using a cane or walker would only lead to more assistance and weakness on his part. My Aunt's thoughts were that these particular items gave people needed assistance which gave them more freedom and mobility. I was struck by the difference.
This is a great dessert for entertaining. You can make this ahead of time and use whatever fruit is in season. It's one that everyone will love. We enjoyed this warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Re-heat slowly in a 300F oven.
This recipe has been adapted from the blog, Orangette by Molly Wizenberg.
For the filling:
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
4 to 5 peaches, depending on size of peaches
For the topping:
3/4 cup organic sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
7 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
Preheat oven to 375F. Lightly butter a 9" x 13" dish.
Core and slice peaches, add to prepared baking dish. In a mixing bowl whisk together the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and ginger. Pour over peaches and gently stir to coat.

Using fingertips, squeeze and press mixture together, then add half the butter creating moist clumps, Spoon evenly over peaches. Then add the rest of the butter.

Mysavoryspoon was first started in 2010 as a way to journal recipes that I had collected from cookbooks, magazines, family and friends. Most everything was savory, using legumes and whole grains. Along the way I discovered a love for baking. Now a couple times a month you might see some type of sweet pie or treat.
