5-6 large ripe peaches, peeled, pitted and cut into chunks
1 lemon, zested and juiced
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup tightly packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

For the filling:
Toss the peaches in a large bowl with the zest and lemon juice. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir to combine. Pour peach mixture into glass baking dish.

For the topping:
Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor except the water. Pulse until combined, this will take about 30 seconds. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time until mixture is clumpy but crumbly.

Top peaches with the topping. Be sure to loosely sprinkle the topping and not pack it down. The idea is to look very crumbly and 

Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 45 minutes, or until the filling is hot and bubbly and the topping, brown and crispy.

Note: This is perfection served hot with vanilla ice cream.
