Peach Crisp

It's been a while! My first recipe as a college graduate is a delicious peach crisp in celebration of the beginning of  peach season, one of my absolute favorite times of the year. This homey dessert is easy to make and can be made ahead. It goes perfectly with ice cream or some freshly whipped cream. Play around with spices and flavorings, of course, and see what creations you can come up with!
Serves 4-8

8 ripe peaches (or more or less depending on the size of your pan), washed
4 T butter
½ c. brown sugar
1 c. oats
⅓ c. whole wheat flour (or white, but whole wheat's healthier and you can't taste the difference at all!)
dash of freshly grated nutmeg (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Cut peaches in half, remove pit, and cut into bite-sized chunks. Place in the bottom of your baking dish (square, oval, rectangle, individual ramekins, etc.).
2. Combine remaining ingredients in a bowl and mix well with a hand or two forks until uniformly mixed and butter is in pea-sized bits.
3. Spread crumble evenly over peaches.
4. Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly browned on top. Serve hot or room temperature, with ice cream or something else, or on its own!

  1. This turned great: the crumble adding enjoyable crunch to the peach. I tried it recently
