Best peach crisp yet

August in Missouri means amazing, fall off the pit peaches. Especially from Schweizer Orchard or Hunts Orchard. Mmm. Plus, who doesn’t love an excuse to drive out to the country, pet a baby goat, and long for rolling hill farm acreage?

So by the end of today, I found myself with 14 ripe peaches and a craving for peach crisp. Previous attempts at making fresh peach crisp had resulted in not enough crispy topping that was not crispy enough, thanks to all of the delicious peach juice. Today though, success. (Just a warning – the amount of butter is not for those on diets. Or at all concerned about their hearts)

What you need:
10 fresh peaches
2 cups of flour
2 cups brown sugar
1.5 cups oats
2.5 sticks butter
3 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp lemon juice

Grease 9X13 pan and set aside.
Chop peaches into bite-sized pieces and put into large bowl. Toss with 1/4 cup flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar and lemon juice. Layer mixture/peaches into pan.

In separate bowl, mix 1.5 cups oats, 1.5 cups brown sugar, 2 tsp cinnamon and 1.75 cups flour. Cut two sticks of butter into small pieces and blend with dry mix with a food processor (or two knives) until a coarse mixture is attained.

Layer on top of peaches in pan, covering all peaches with thick layer. Place in oven at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes until peach juice is bubbling up to the top and the crisp is golden brown.

Remove from oven and cut remaining 1/2 stick of butter into small pieces and layer on top, and sprinkle remaining cinnamon over the crust. Once butter melts, dish and serve with homemade whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
