Looking for an easy dessert to serve? Try this easy peach crisp recipe. Crisps can be made ahead and hold up well overnight. Read on to see a yummy summer version of this dish.
I usually hate to turn on my oven during summer unless it is a gray, dreary day. If I do make something that requires the oven, I try to make it late at night for the next day or early in the morning. We don’t have whole house air conditioning, just some window units and the oven can really warm up the house. This peach crisp is definitely worth heating up the house a bit! Other than the tasty factor, crisps are pretty versatile too.
Crisps taste delicious cold or warm- am I the only who thinks this? Ha ha.
This dish works for really any time of day. Because it contains oats, I feel it is perfectly acceptable to serve at brunch or eat leftovers for breakfast. Definitely versatile 🙂
First step, gather your ingredients. Growing up, my grandmother would make the apple version of this recipe. After seeing peach versions, I thought why not adapt my grandma’s recipe and swap in peaches so I can enjoy the crumbly goodness all year??
Combine ingredients for peaches.
Secondly, start to combine ingredients in a bowl. That’s my son helping out. This is a perfect recipe for a preschooler to try!
Stir until combined.
Next step, we stir.
