Crumble-Topped Peaches

POINTS® Value: 4
Servings: 4
Preparation Time: 15 min
Cooking Time: 30 min
Level of Difficulty: Moderate
Juicy peaches make a wonderful baked treat with a crunchy, sweet topping. Just make sure to check for doneness after 25 minutes and every 5 minutes thereafter, because the baking time varies depending on the ripeness of the fruit.


9 average reduced-fat vanilla wafer(s)

1/4 cup(s) blanched almonds, skinless

2 Tbsp butter

1 Tbsp sugar
1 large egg white(s)
2 item(s) peach(es), halved and pitted


  • Preheat oven to 400ºF. Coat a baking dish with cooking spray.

  • Place wafers and almonds in a zip-close plastic bag. Crush into small chunks (not powder) using a rolling pin.

  • Beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 2 to 4 minutes. Add egg white and beat 1 minute more. Stir in wafer mixture.

  • Place each peach half in baking dish, cut-side facing up (slice a bit off the bottom, if necessary, so they lie flat). Fill each with 1/4 of wafer mixture. Bake until peaches are soft and give no resistance when pierced with the tip of a paring knife, about 30 minutes. Yields 1/2 peach per serving.
