What is a Dessert Crisp?
A dessert crisp is typically a dessert made with fruit and it is topped with a light buttery streusel crumb topping.
It is different from a cobbler because a cobbler is heavier and denser with a more biscuit-like topping.
How to make Peach Crisp:
Peach Crisp is made first by peeling and slicing your peaches.
You then make your topping. Layer the peaches in the bottom of the baking dish.
Spread the topping on top and then bake. Enjoy topped with whipped cream or my personal favorite vanilla ice cream.
- Fresh Peaches - sliced
- All-Purpose Flour
- Brown Sugar
- Butter - cold and sliced
- Ground Cinnamon
- Rolled Oats
Step One - Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a 2-quart casserole dish lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
Step Two - Place peeled and sliced peaches into your prepared casserole dish.
Step Three - In a separate bowl mix together flour, brown sugar, cold butter, cinnamon, and salt. Use a pastry cutter or clean hands to crumble topping.
Step Four - Next mix in rolled oats to your butter crumble. Once mixed top your peaches with your crumble.
Step Five - Place in the oven to bake for 25-30 minutes or until your crumble is golden brown.
Optional - Serve topped with ice cream or whipped cream.
Can I use canned peaches for this recipe?
You can use canned peaches for this if you prefer.
You will need one of the large 30oz cans. Drain them well before adding to the baking dish.
You do not wany any of the syrup in your crisp. This will change the nutritional value of this recipe a little bit using canned peaches.
Do you have to peel the peaches?
Yes, you most definitely want to peel the peaches.
You want warm tender bites of peach when you eat the crisp.
Leaving the skin on the peaches will result in less than tender peaches after baking.
