Notes from the coobook:
This is one of the great ones, folks,
Drink any remaining maple cream sauce with a straw. Then fall into a deep sleep and wake up in a week, after your guilt subsides.

Cut cold butter into pieces. Add butter to the bowl and use a fork or pastry blender to cut it into the flour mixture. The mixture should resemble a moist coarse meal.
3Put the peaches in a bowl. add the lemon zest to the peaches. Mix in the lemon juice and maple syrup and gently stir the peaches to mix.
4Pour peaches into a 9 inch square or 8 x 12 inch baking dish. Top with the crumb mixture, evening out the surface with a fork. cover tightly with foil and bake for about 15 minutes.
Remove foil and bake 30 minutes more or til topping is crisp and golden brown. If topping appears underdone, continue baking in 10 minute increment til it’s done.
