Easy Peach Crisp Recipe
Made with fresh peaches and a buttery brown sugar oat topping, Homemade Peach Crisp is the perfect summertime dessert! Serve this peach crisp warm with either a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
8x8 inch baking pan
- 5 fresh peaches, peeled (optional), sliced into ¼" inch slices (about 5 cups)
- ¼ cup sugar
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 ½ tablespoons lemon juice
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ⅛ teaspoon salt
- ¾ cup old-fashioned oats (rolled oats)
- ⅔ cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ cup unsalted butter, room temperature (1 stick)
In a large bowl, combine the sliced peaches, sugar, flour, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and salt until evenly coated. Then pour it into the prepared baking pan.
In a medium-sized bowl, mix together the oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Add the butter and use a pastry blender to cut into the dry ingredients. Then switch to using your hands. Mix everything together with your hands until a crumbly topping has formed.
Sprinkle the crisp topping over the peaches and bake for 44-50 minutes. Once you see the top is golden brown and the peach juices are bubbling along the sides of the pan, you know it's done.
Let the peach crisp cool for about 15 minutes before serving with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!
Keep any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
