Sweet and Simple—Peach Crisps

RileyAdamsFoodBlogPostpic_thumb_thumb In the South, we like things sweet.

Sweet tea is a must.

We frequently call family members “sweetie.”

And something naturally sweet, like peaches, gets even sweeter in recipes like the one below, for peach crisps.

I’d just bought some wonderful peaches at the market that were just the right ripeness. I wasn’t in the mood to do something quite as involved as a cobbler, so this recipe hit the spot.


Peach Crisp

Preheat oven to 375

4 cups fresh peaches
3/4 cup sugar (set half aside)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup flour
1 stick butter

Peel, pit, and slice the peaches. Add half the sugar and all the cinnamon. Cut the butter into the lour and add the last half of the sugar to the flour and butter mixture. Put peaches in a well-greased casserole dish and cover with the flour mixture. Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes or until the topping is golden brown and the peaches are tender.

If you want, you can even put some ice cream or whipped cream on top. I wanted to. :) Serve it hot for extra deliciousness.

My camera was not cooperating with me yesterday, but this should give you an idea…
