Peach Crisp Recipe

Happy Wednesday!

Here in Southern California we are finally experiencing cooler weather! It actually feels like fall!  My easy peach crisp recipe is the perfect dessert for those chilly fall nights.  I’ve listed step by step directions with pictures, but you can find the directions without the interruption of pictures at the bottom of the post as well!

peach crisp ingredients

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375°.  Grease bottom of small baking dish (8×8) with butter.  In small bowl, combine packed brown sugar, 1/2 cup flour and old fashioned oats.  Add butter to the rest of topping ingredients, combining with a pastry cutter until the mixture resembles course crumbs.  Set aside.

Heat a large glass bowl of water until boiling.  Carefully add peaches to boiling water and let stand for 1 minute.  Remove peaches from water and peel.  Soaking the peaches in boiling water makes peeling the peaches so much easier!  place peaches in hot water to peel easier

Cut peaches in half and remove pit.

Cut peaches into thin slices, then into 1 inch cubes.  If you are like me and don’t like the texture of the red part around the pit, take a biscuit cutter to remove, as shown below. removing red center from peaches

In a medium bowl, coat peaches with 1/2 cup sugar and 1 1/2 Tbsp flour.  Pour peach mixture into baking dish.

Sprinkle crumb topping over peaches.  It seems like a lot of topping, but add it all!  I left some off, thinking I had enough.  Since I used a wide baking dish ,the crumb layer was too thin and you can see in the picture of the crisp after it comes out of the oven that the topping really is absorbed.

Bake for about 30 minutes or until topping is golden brown.
