Peach Crisp Recipe
Is there a more perfect end-of-summer recipe than a classic Peach Crisp? Peaches are one of the best products of summer, and right now, you can get fresh, ripe, juicy ones from just about any grocery store (not to mention the farmer’s markets and roadside produce stands are basically overflowing with them!).
While they taste incredible right off the branch, in my opinion, peaches are best when served in a classic peach crisp. While I have a well-loved Apple Cobbler Crisp, this peach version is my favorite version yet: a sweet bottom layer of juicy peaches and a buttery crisp topping. Top everything off with a scoop of vanilla extract, and you have yourself one of the best desserts of summer.
Ingredients in Peach Crisp
The fresh peaches combined with the deliciously flavored granola with a hint of cinnamon might just be the best combination out there! Check out the recipe card at the bottom of the post for all of the exact measurements.
- Peaches: For this recipe, you will want to peel your peaches.
- Sugar: This sweetens up the peaches.
- Lemon Juice: The lemon juice keeps the peaches nice and fresh.
- Flour: I used all-purpose flour in this recipe.
- Ground Cinnamon: This ingredient gives the recipe a delicious flavor that complements the fruit
- Salt: The salt enhances all of the ingredients in the peach crisp recipe.
- Vanilla Extract: You can use vanilla paste if you have that instead.
- Flour: I used all-purpose flour in the topping.
- Oats: I used old-fashioned oats in this recipe.
- Light Brown Sugar: Th brown sugar adds a delicious sweet and deep flavor.
- Baking Soda: The baking soda adds to the texture of the streusel.
- Salt: This enhances all of the flavors.
- Ground Cinnamon: The cinnamon in the topping complements the cinnamon in the peach filling.
- Butter: Keep the butter cold in the fridge until you are ready to cut it into cubes.
How to Make Peach Crisp
This recipe is simple to make, but it packs a huge punch! It’s perfect for dessert, and I love adding on a scoop of ice cream just before serving.
- Prep: Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly spray the sides and bottom of a 9×9 baking dish. Set aside.
- Make Peach Filling: In a large bowl, stir together peaches, sugar, lemon juice, flour, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla. Pour into prepared baking dish.
- Combine ingredients to make topping: In another bowl, prepare your crisp topping by whisking together flour, oats, brown sugar, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Use a pastry cutter or a pair of knives to cut the butter into the mixture until the mixture begins to clump together. Sprinkle evenly over peach filling.
- Bake: Transfer to the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes or until peaches are bubbling and the crisp topping is golden brown.
What Is the Difference Between Peach Cobbler and Peach Crisp?
Cobblers and crisps are often confused with one another! They are actually very different! Cobblers are typically made with a sweetened biscuit-like topping (like my Old Fashioned Apple Cobbler), while crisps are made with a topping that is crisper and more like a streusel.
Do You Have to Peel Peaches for Peach Crisp?
Technically you do not need to peel your peaches when making peach crisp. But I’ve found that the skins get tough after baking, so for best taste and texture, I suggest peeling them first.
Can I Make Peach Crisp with Frozen Peaches?
Yes! You can make a peach crisp with frozen peaches. However, I recommend allowing them to thaw and drain the excess liquid before substituting them for the fresh peaches in this recipe. The easiest way to do this is just to place the frozen peach slices in a colander and leave them in the sink until they are thawed.
This peach crisp makes fantastic leftovers! It’s so delicious, and you can have dessert for days (if you can resist and make it last that long).
- In the Refrigerator: You can store your leftover peach crisp in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
- To Reheat: When ready to warm up your leftovers, place them in a baking dish and bake them at 350 for about 10 minutes or until warmed through.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and lightly spray the sides and bottom of a 9×9 baking dish. Set aside.
In a large bowl, stir together peaches, sugar, lemon juice, flour, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla. Pour into prepared baking dish.
