Peach Crisp Ingredients
Old-Fashioned Quick Oats – Uncooked old fashioned quick oats will work best for this recipe.
Peaches – We need peeled peaches for this recipe and we recommend blanching them instead of using a vegetable peeler. Blanching peaches is going to save much more of the flesh of the fruit. For a quick guide on how to blanch peaches, check out this article from MasterClass.
How to make Peach Crisp with Fresh Peaches
Mix together flour, brown sugar, oats, and cinnamon before adding vanilla and butter. Using something like a pastry blender or fork, work together until large crumbs form.
Blanch and peel peaches before cutting into small slices. Toss with granulated sugar and cornstarch to coat before setting in baking dish.
Cover coated peaches with crisp topping and bake at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until topping is browned and peaches are soft.
We’ll start with the topping. In a bowl, mix together the flour, brown sugar, oats, and cinnamon. Once mixed, add in the vanilla extract and the butter- cut into pats. Use a pastry blender to work into large crumbs and set aside.
Next, our peaches. First, score the peaches with a large X pattern.
Carefully transfer the peaches to boiling water and let boil for 10-20 seconds. After that, transfer to an ice bath and let cool before peeling.
Once peeled, cut the peaches into smaller slices and set in a baking dish. Pour granulated sugar evenly over peach slices and toss to coat.
Do this with the cornstarch as well.
Now we can get back to our crisp topping.
Take your crisp topping and spread evenly over top the peach slices.
Transfer your topped peach crisp to an awaiting 375 degree oven and let bake for 30-35 minutes.
You’ll know your crisp is done when the topping is crisp and brown and the peaches are softened up.
Enjoy while it’s warm and top with ice cream if you’d like. Enjoy!
