1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a cast iron skillet; set aside. Halve the peaches and slice thickly; set aside.

2. Combine first six ingredients in a mixing bowl. Cube the butter and cut into the flour mixture using a pastry cutter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
