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
  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Coat a 10-inch cast iron skillet with cooking spray and set aside.
  • Combine flour, 1/2 cup pecans, sugar, and salt in a food processor; pulse until the nuts are finely ground.
  • Add in the butter and continue to pulse until well incorporated.
  • Add egg, canola oil, and strawberry extract to the food processor; continue to run the food processor until the mixture is combined and clumpy.
  • Measure out 1 cup of the crust mixture and set aside.
  • Take the remaining mixture from the food processor and transfer it to previously prepared cast iron skillet.
  • Spread the mixture evenly over the skillet and press firmly into the bottom to form a crust.
FOR THE FILLING
  • Combine peaches and cherries in a mixing bowl and gently stir in the sugar.
  • Layer the fruit mixture over the prepared crust.
  • Top with the reserved topping and remaining pecans, spreading it evenly over the entire fruit filling.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, then lower the temperature to 350F and continue to bake for 20 more minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Serve with ice cream or without. 
  • Cover and refrigerate leftovers.

If watching your calorie-intake and/or WW smart points, I would stick to 1/2-cup serving instead of the whole 1 cup.
