Ingredients

FOR THE CRUMBLE

  • 1 1/2 cups white, whole wheat all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chopped pecans , divided
  • 1/2 cup sugar or your choice of artificial sweetener (I've used Stevia)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon pure strawberry extract

FOR THE FILLING

  • 3 cups sliced peaches
  • 3 cups cherries , pits removed
  • 1/2 cup sugar or your choice of sweetener (I've used honey, stevia, and maple syrup at different times)
  • 1 teaspoon pure strawberry extract

Instructions

FOR THE CRUMBLE

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.

  2. Coat a 10-inch cast iron skillet with cooking spray and set aside.

  3. Combine flour, 1/2 cup pecans, sugar, and salt in a food processor; pulse until the nuts are finely ground.

  4. Add in the butter and continue to pulse until well incorporated.

  5. Add egg, canola oil, and strawberry extract to the food processor; continue to run the food processor until the mixture is combined and clumpy.

  6. Measure out 1 cup of the crust mixture and set aside.

  7. Take the remaining mixture from the food processor and transfer it to previously prepared cast iron skillet.

  8. Spread the mixture evenly over the skillet and press firmly into the bottom to form a crust.

FOR THE FILLING

  1. Combine peaches and cherries in a mixing bowl and gently stir in the sugar.

  2. Layer the fruit mixture over the prepared crust.

  3. Top with the reserved topping and remaining pecans, spreading it evenly over the entire fruit filling.

  4. Bake for 15 minutes, then lower the temperature to 350F and continue to bake for 20 more minutes.

  5. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 to 10 minutes.

  6. Serve with ice cream or without. 

  7. Cover and refrigerate leftovers.
