Navajo-Style Peach Crisp

Jen Castle | Delicious Living

A Navajo family in Arizona’s Canyon de Chelly taught Jen Castle and Blake Spalding, the chef-owners of Hell's Backbone Grill & Farm, this amazing recipe, lightened here with less sugar and butter. “In Boulder we have many varieties of peaches and this crisp is one of our favorite ways to use them,” say Blake and Jen. “Eat it with fresh whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, or your bare hands.”

  1. Preheat oven to 375˚. Coat an 11x17-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Filling: In a medium bowl, combine peaches, sugar, flour, and lemon juice. Use your hands to really mix it well so no little flour lumps lurk anywhere. Spread fruit mixture evenly in baking dish and set aside.
  3. Topping: In a medium bowl, mix together flour, cornmeal, sugar, and salt. Using your fingers or the paddle attachment of a mixer, work butter pieces into the dry ingredients so the mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Mix in pine nuts.
  4. Cover fruit evenly with topping. Set it on a baking sheet to catch any juices that spill over. Bake until fruit is bubbling and tender to a fork and topping is golden in color, about 45 minutes.
