Nectarine Crisp with Streusel Topping
Adapted from “How To Cook Everything”

Fruit filling
6 cups of sliced nectarines (about two pounds)
Juice of half a lemon (about 1.5 tbsp)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp brown sugar
Streusel Topping
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup (packed) brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans (or your favorite nut)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 c. rolled oats (not instant oats)
1/2 c. all-purpose flour
Pinch of saltPreheat the oven to 400. Toss the fruit filling ingredients together and spread in a well-buttered 1.5-quart baking dish. (An 8-inch square or 9-inch round works. I used an oval Corning Ware dish,)Cream the butter and sugar using an electric mixer, food processor, or fork. Stir or pulse in the remaining ingredients until combined and crumbly; it won’t hold together like a dough. (You can refrigerate or freeze until about 30 minutes before you’re ready to use it. Defrost if necessary, then use.)

Crumble the mixture over the crisp. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, until the topping is browned and the fruit is tender and bubbling. Let stand for a few minutes, then serve with ice cream!
