G'morning! Before peach season is over, I'm trying to eat as many as I possibly can. Clearly I'm an avid fan—they're quite possibly my favorite fruit. So, I wanted to bring you a yummy recipe for your Sunday! Don't like peaches? (In which case, you and I can't be friends. Just kidding!) You can easily substitute with a different kind of fruit, such as apricot, raspberry, cherry, etc.
While baking this, the smell in your entire apartment will be sublime. I guess you can take the girl out of the Midwest but you can't take the Midwest out of the girl! Alright, I'm running back to bed with the hubby for massive cudding, coffee-sipping and NYT's + Fall fashion reading. And of course, nomming down on this delicious summery crisp!
Happy Sunday! Catch you all tomorrow!
FRESH PEACH CRISP
- 6 cups fresh peaches, peeled, pitted, and sliced – about 6-7 peaches
- 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 tablespoons sugar 1 cup + 3 tablespoons flour
- 1 cup old fashioned oats 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup butter, cold, cut into cubes
- Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease a 9×13 inch casserole dish.
- In a large bowl, toss peaches with cinnamon, vanilla, 3 tablespoons sugar and 3 tablespoons flour. Pour the peaches into the greased casserole dish.
- In a separate large bowl, combine 1 cup flour with old fashioned oats, and brown sugar. Cut in butter until you have a crumbly consistency.
- Pour the crumbly topping on top of the peaches.
- Bake in the oven, uncovered for 45-50 minutes.
- *Notes: Some of you think there's too much butter? If so, feel free to reduce the amount to 1/2 cup like I did. As much as I love butter, I wanted to cut it in half since I overloaded on a grilled porterhouse steak last night with some shallot + parsley butter on top. Yes, I'm still dreaming about that steak. I might have to do one later this week! Anyway, if you want your Fresh Peach Crisp to be extra crisp, bake for 5-10 minutes longer, making sure to keep a close eye on it. I personally love the end result using a full cup of butter.
