Roasted Peach Halves with Crumb Topping are as delectable as they are cute. Served warm from the oven with a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream, so good!This is one of those brilliantly obvious recipes that makes me hit the side of my head and say, “Why didn’t I think of making this before ?!” Imagine, summer sweet, ripe peaches, roasted to perfection and topped with a yummy brown sugar, oatmeal, and pecan crumb topping.
I mean, come on, how delicious does that sound? They’re like a perfect single portion of peach crisp in a fun and naturally creative presentation.
If you need to serve a big crowd, obviously, a 9X13 baking dish of peach crisp or peach cobbler is an easy choice. These, however, have a simple cleverness to them that just tickles me for some reason! This little single serving of peachy yum was a fun and delicious alternative to my original fav!
I have to confess, I had the one, lone left over reheated for breakfast the day after I made them and I smiled the rest of the day in utter delight!

Ingredients You’ll Need

- All-Purpose Flour
- Light Brown Sugar
- Rolled Oats
- Ground Cinnamon
Do The Peaches Need To Be Peeled?
- No. Generally, when I use peaches in a baked recipe, I peel them. For instance in a crisp or cobbler, if the peaches aren’t peeled, the skins can detach and add an unpleasant chewy bit to the finished dish. In this recipe, however, the peels don’t separate and are nice in this recipe. I also appreciate that they add to the nutritional value.
Adding The Topping:
- When you add the topping to the peaches, I find it’s most easily done by holding the peach half in one of your hands, over the bowl of crumble and compacting it down with an inverted large spoon covering the top of the peach applying gentle pressure. This allows you to catch and not lose any of the amazing crumble toppings that falls off the side of the peach half and also allows you to get the proper amount of pressure when you compress the topping to the peach top.
Storing + Freezing + Make-Ahead
- How Long Can You Keep This In The Fridge? Store them in the fridge for 2-3 days!
- Can You Freeze This? Yes! This is a great dessert to make when peaches are in season, then freeze it to have during those peach-less winter months. Once cooled, package the peaches airtight and store it in the freezer for up to eight months!
What To Serve With These Peaches
These are wonderful on their own or served warm, fresh out of the oven, with a generous scoop of good quality vanilla ice cream.

Roasted Peach Halves with Crumb Topping
- 4 Tablespoons 1/2 Stick Unsalted Butter, Plus More for Greasing the Skillet
- 3 Ripe Peaches Cut in Half, Pit Removed, Peeled Optional
- 1/4 Cup All-Purpose Flour
- 1/4 Cup Light Brown Sugar Packed
- 1/4 Cup Rolled Oats
- 1/4 Cup Pecans Chopped
- 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
- 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and adjust an oven rack to the center of the oven. Butter a 6 inch cast iron skillet or other baking dishes.
- In a medium, wide diameter bowl, add 4 tablespoons butter, flour, sugar, oats, pecans, cinnamon and salt. Using a pastry blender or two knives, blend together ingredients until the butter is the size of peas and the mixture is crumbly. Mound the mixture evenly on the peach halves and press it down to compact it so it stays in place.
- Arrange peaches in the buttered baking dish and roast in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the peaches are softened to your liking and the topping is golden and bubbling just around the edges. Allow to rest about 5 minutes before serving.
