This peach crisp, both easy and delicious, is one of my husband’s favorite homemade desserts. I made it two times this past week. Both times, it disappeared within 12 hours. Since it is well loved in our home, I am sharing the recipe with y’all!
Recently, I made this peach crisp with fresh white peaches. Then, I used ripened yellow peaches and extra cinnamon, which happened to be my husband’s favorite! Either way, you can not go wrong with this simple dessert.
Easy Peach Crisp
What you Need:
- 4 sliced large peaches
- 1 1/2 cup rolled oats – we love Bob’s Red Mill Old Fashioned Organic oats
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 cup organic brown sugar
- 8 tablespoons sliced butter
- 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
What you Do:
- First, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Rinse, pit and slice 4 peaches.
- Place peel side down into buttered 8×8 inch casserole dish. Then, sprinkle with 1/2 tsp cinnamon.
- Stir oats, brown sugar, flour, and remaining cinnamon together.
- Next, add butter into mixture, mashing together with fork or pastry blender.
- Pour mixture over peaches, spreading it evenly.
- Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Remove the foil for the last 10 minutes of cooking or until the top is golden brown and the center is bubbly.
- Finally, serve warm with a dollop of whipped cream or scoop of vanilla ice cream!
- If peaches aren’t very ripe, perhaps a tad hard, they will take longer to cook.
- You can make this with peeled or unpeeled peaches. However, I tend to use unpeeled.
- First, drain if using canned peaches. Frozen works, too. But, fresh tastes best.
- Add nutmeg or ginger to your liking. However, I keep it simple with cinnamon.
- Try this with other fruit. For example, berries or apples.
How to Pit a Peach
This is the quickest way to pit a peach. Often times, the pit may leave a few hard, yet small pieces behind. Therefore, rinse the inside of the peach and run your finger over the inside to ensure the pit is completely gone.
- First, use a paring knife to pierce the peach where the stem is attached.
- Then, slice along the seam around the peach. Allow the knife to glide along the pit of the peach.
- Next, with both hands gently twist the two sides in opposite directions.
- Pull the halves apart and remove the pit with fingers.
- Finally, rinse the inside of the peach before eating or slicing.
