Grilled Peach Crumble Recipe Will Make Your Summer Complete

Grilled peach crumble plated

Impress your guests with this simple dessert recipe — grilled peach crumble!

The arrival of summer means many things to many people, but for me it marks the arrival of my favorite fresh fruit: peaches. Sweet, juicy, and full of flavor, they are a refreshing foil for the blistering heat.

They also star in this simple dessert recipe for your next cookout, grilled personal peach crumbles. It begins by quickly charring halved peaches on the grill. Then you top them with a simple, sweet crumble mixture and bake the peaches on the grill over indirect heat until they take on a delicate smoky flavor and the crumble becomes crisp and golden brown. Top them off with a dollop of whipped cream, and you’ve got a delicious no-fuss dessert!

Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Difficulty: Easy

Makes:

Servings: 6 servings

Takes:

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon Mortons coarse kosher salt
  • 3 ripe fresh peaches
  • Homemade or aerosol whipped cream
About the salt. Remember, kosher salt is half the concentration of table salt so if you use table salt, use half as much. Click here to read more about salt and how it works.

Method

  • Prep. Combine the butter, flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a small bowl. Blend the ingredients with a fork to create small crumbles.
  • Cut the peaches in half vertically. Twist the halves and remove the pits. Cut approximately 1/8-inch off of the rounded side of each peach half so that the peaches can sit flat, pit side up, on the grill.

  • Fire up. Prepare a grill for indirect cooking by placing a chimney full of pre-heated charcoal briquets on one side of the grill’s charcoal grate in order to create direct and indirect cooking zones. Add 2 to 3 chunks of your favorite smoking wood to the charcoal for flavor. Adjust the grill vents to bring the temperature to about 325°F. On a gas grill, adjust the temperature knobs so that one half of the grill is off and the other half is heated enough to maintain a temperature of approximately 325°F.
  • Cook. Place the halved peaches, pit side down, on the hot side of the grill. Grill the peaches until lightly charred, approximately 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the peaches from the grill.

  • Spread on the crumble. Top the pit side of the peaches generously with the crumble mixture, spreading the crumble all the way to the edges. Set the peaches, topping side up, on the cooler side of the grill as far from the heat source as possible. Cover the grill and allow the peaches to cook until the crumble mixture is golden brown, approximately 15 minutes.

The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker.
