Peach Crisp


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.

Peach Crisp
(printable recipes)

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.

Looks delicious! I recently made a recipe with peaches too, because my mother bought a lot of them and we didn't want to throw them away...they're great for baking!

Have a great Sunday!

Colorado peaches are everywhere right now and we are using them on our menu here is Vail, Colorado at La Tour Resturant. We too ended up with many extra and tried your peach crisp recipe for "family meal". We serve the staff a meal each night before service, and this recipe was a hit! Thanks for the recipe.
