Peach Crisp is one of my favorite summer desserts. I know I’m a little early talking about summer, but I am ready for some warm sunshine, lots of swimming, and peach crisp for dessert!
This peach crisp starts with a bottom layer of flaky, buttery pastry you bake first. Then you top it with warm and sweet peach filling. Yum. Top it with a crumbly oatmeal streusel topping and it is all a match made right in heaven!
When it’s summer time, and peaches are in season, I like to use fresh peaches. During the fall months I use canned peaches and it still tastes incredible!
One of my favorite ways to enjoy peach crisp is with a giant scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. It’s seriously amazing and just finishes off this delicious dessert to perfection! 🙂

- For topping, combine the oats, brown sugar and flour. Cut in the butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over filling. Bake at 350° for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.
