Peach Crisp

Peaches are in season. They are sweet, juicy, wonderful.

The copy paper box full of peaches that I got off my aunts’ peach tree was no exception.

So many peaches that something had to happen quickly with them. They don’t hang on the counter very well, for very long. I ate some. I gave some away. I ate some more. I put some in the freezer for later use. I still had So Many Left!!

So…I made peach crisp, and ran to the store for ice cream. Actually, I went and got the ice cream first.  It was a perfect summer treat!

Once again, a pretty simple recipe. And, it’s quite possible you will have all the ingredients on hand already.

Peel, de-pit, and slice up your peaches
Toss them in a bowl with sugar (your preference, I used about 1/2 a cup)

Mix together the topping:
1/2 cup quick oats
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup butter (chilled and diced)

Pour peaches into a baking dish, throw the topping on, cook for 40 min in a 350 degree oven (uncovered).

Serve it warm with ice cream on top.

Then, make it again with another of your favorite fruits!

What’s your favorite fruity dish to whip up when produce is at its best??

    I would have to say( although I’m not sure if it counts as a dish) my favorite thing is a banana milkshake. I know what your thinking. Milkshake?? Don’t you mean smoothie?? Nope I did infact mean milkshake( ice cream and all)! Must try!! Especially if you don’t particularly like the texture of bananas by themselves like myself.
