Fresh Peach Crisp


It's that time of year...the peaches are here!! (I totally didn't mean to make that rhyme and I thought of changing it but...) I love, love, love (did I say *LOVE*) that you can go to just about any local farm in the area and get fresh peaches. They are so juicy that the juices run down your chin on the first bite and we usually don't make it home without having downed quite a few! (We always keep a container of Handi Wipes in the truck for such adventures!) This is an all-time favorite dessert that I like to make with these beauties. Tomorrow I'll share my recipe for easy Homemade Peach Jam (we always run out of this mid-Winter)!


  • 5 cups sliced peaches
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
  2. Toss peaches with lemon juice and water in a shallow 2 quart baking dish.
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Mix to blend thoroughly. Cut in the butter or margarine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Crumble over peaches to cover completely.
  4. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes until top is lightly browned. Serve warm or at room temperature. 
As an added bonus you can serve with a big old scoop of vanilla ice cream!!
