On Friday, I bought a box of peaches. Best day ever!!!!!
Look at that color ❤
Are you maybe getting my obsession with fruit? I’m going to miss summer PURELY because all my favorite fruits go out of season. HOWEVER…fall is my very very VERY favorite season! And I’m starting to see some definite fall vibes. Can barely contain my excitement 😀 Now if only we can start getting some cooler temperatures…
Is it fall yet where you’re at?!
And peaches are my very very VERY favorite fruit! Maybe even one of my favorite FOODS. I love them so much 🙂 I’ve eaten like three every day since Friday. And there’s so much you can do with them! Peaches with cream, peach salsa, grilled peaches…peach crisp… 🙂
This is my go-to crisp for any fruit, but peaches and apples in particular. The topping is ultra-crumbly and crispy and the butter does AMAZING things with the sugar while it bakes into the oats and flour. It browns and becomes almost nutty and that nutty flavor pairs PERFECTLY with the smooth, spiced peaches. A note on the butter – it NEEDS to be cold so that it doesn’t cream into the sugars and flour and oats. Cold butter is essential to crumbly crispy…well, crisp. So good news for you! You don’t have to worry about softening the butter before baking.
And I love the touch of brown sugar with the peaches in the filling. It thickens the juice the peaches produce just slightly so you don’t have your filling flooding your plate and making your topping soggy. Gah. This is just the perfect end of summer dessert. Or breakfast. I won’t even judge. It’s pretty much oatmeal, right? Right? Right?!
(Not really. Oh well. Still not judging if you eat it for breakfast 😉 )
10/10 would recommend topping with whipped cream (or vanilla ice cream). 😀
