Bakers typically pair ginger with apples or pears, but Grace Parisi loves using fresh peaches, too. She makes the topping for her fruit crisp in seconds in a food processor, using store-bought gingersnaps.

  1. 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  2. 6 large peaches (2 1/2 pounds), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch wedges
  3. 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  4. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  5. 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  6. Pinch of salt
  7. 1 cup coarsely crushed gingersnaps
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°. In a skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter. Add the peaches and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until just softened, 8 minutes. Add 1/4 cup of the brown sugar and the lemon juice and cook until the peaches are lightly caramelized, about 5 minutes; scrape into a 1 1/2-quart baking dish.
  2. Meanwhile, in a food processor, pulse the flour and salt with the remaining 2 tablespoons each of butter and brown sugar until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the crushed gingersnaps and pulse 2 or 3 times, just to incorporate the cookies.
  3. Press the topping into clumps and sprinkle over the peaches. Bake in the center of the oven for about 15 minutes, until the top is browned and the filling is bubbling. Let cool slightly, then serve.
