Peaches are right in season now, so don't forget to use them! I bought a big box of them, but noticed them going bad very fast in our extremely hot weather so I decided to bake a crisp. I normally just eat peaches just as they are - one of my favorite fruits for sure - but they're delicious in baked goods as well.
This won't make a huge pie - it's enough for four (or maybe six very well-behaved) people.
8 small peaches
2 tbsp homemade vanilla sugar (just stick a few vanilla beans in a jar of sugar, and let it sit. Regular sugar works well too.)
100 g cold butter
100 g all-purpose flour
100 g brown sugar
30 g rolled oats
1-2 tsp cinnamon
Cut the peaches into large dice and mix with the sugar in an oven-proof dish. Bake at 200°C for about 20 minutes, at which point the peaches should be nice and soft.
Mix all ingredients for the topping - by hand or in a food processor, or in a mixer. Distribute evenly on top of the peaches. Bake at 200°C for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown and crunchy.
Serve with vanilla ice cream or custard.
