Ingredients
  • 8 Servings

    Filling:

  • 6 cup fresh peach slices (or frozen ones, thawed and drained)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 3 tbsp butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

    Topping:

  • 2 cup self-raising flour
  • 230 g Jarlsberg®, finely grated (about 2¼ cups, divided)
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
Here is how you do it

For the filling:

Preheat oven to 425°F and butter a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.

In a large bowl, mix peaches with sugar, cornstarch, butter, vanilla, cinnamon and lemon juice. Pour into the prepared baking dish and even out with a spatula. Bake for 20 minutes, mixing halfway through. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes.

For the topping:

While peach filling is baking, mix flour, 2 cups of Jarlsberg and the cinnamon in a large bowl. Pour the butter and buttermilk over the flour and mix until blended and a dough is formed.

Lower the oven to 400°F. With your hands, break off tablespoon-sized pieces of the dough, placing them side-by-side on top of the peach filling.

Bake for 15 minutes, then sprinkle with the remaining ¼ cup of Jarlsberg. Bake for another 5-8 minutes, until cheese is melted. Serve with vanilla ice cream or fresh cream.
