  • About This Recipe

    “I read the suggestions and comments in the reviews when I tried this recipe that I adopted from the RecipeZaar account in February 2005.Instead of all the flour, sugar, and cinnamon going into the topping, I increased the amounts of each and mixed some with the peaches.(Originally the recipe called for 1 cup each flour and (white) sugar and only 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon.I like cinnamon.)The result was a dessert with a nice consistency, not runny, and with the sweetness distributed throughout, not just in the topping.This fruity dessert is great served warm with vanilla ice cream.”

  • “I have made this crisp with fresh, frozen and canned peaches all worked out fine. The canned peaches have a softer texture to me. I did add some lemon juice and zest to mine along with a little vanilla flavoring. I think those two additions made this over the top. I think I am going to add some chopped pecans and or oatmeal to the topping next time. I do prefer the frozen peaches slightly better because it is easier to use. They come already peeled and sliced so you save a step there. I usually have to double and triple this recipe when I am taking it to a gathering. Oh and I always add a pinch of salt to desserts because salt brings out the sugar and makes everything taste better. I learned to use salt in desserts in culinary school.”

  • “I doubled the recipe to bring to a family gathering. It easily doubles in the 9 X 13 pan. It was delicious! This is the best peach crisp recipe I’ve tried yet.”

  • “Real sweet but delicious!I served it with a big scoop of Vanilla ice cream to offset the sweetness!Loved the cinnamon!”

  • “Yum!I halfed the recipe and baked in my toaster oven in a 9″ square pan.Used some fresh peaches I had that were going bad and added some canned peaches.Also used Splenda Brown Sugar Blend.Topped it with some low-fat vanilla frozen yogurt.Will definitely make again – very easy to throw together.”

  • “A very nice recipe. My sweetie and I ate almost half of it before it cooled off. It was a little too sweet for me, but my sweetie thought it was perfect the way it was. I’ll make this again the same way and I’ll just keep scraping off some of the topping from my pieces.”

  • “Great recipe. My boyfriend LOVES it! He is always begging me to make it for him. He could eat it everyday. Now if only I could teach him to bake it himself!!”

  • “I made this the other day with some of the many peaches we got from the farmer’s market.It was wonderful!The only change I made was to add 1/2 cup of walnuts to the topping b/c I love walnuts in crisps.Huge hit!I’m off to get more peaches to make more :)Thank you”

  • “This was a good recipe.but i added oats to make it crispier.makes it more peach crisp like and less peach cobbler.”

  • “I made this with the first peaches I got from the farmer’s market.It was a delicious treat.I added about 1/2 cup of oats to the topping.I used the trick of putting the peaches in boiling water for about 20 seconds to make them peel easily.”

  • “Agree with Wanda Lee. Some of the sugar should of been mixed in with the peaches instead of all on top. Used brown sugar instead. Overall, excellent dish.”

  • “Pretty good recipe. I added a few more peached and as I made it in a bigger pan.My peaches gave off quite a bit of water.The topping was great.Next time I time I will put a little cinnamon and sugar right in the peaches.I love the cinnamon flavor and the peaches could have been a touch sweeter.All in all I would make this again.Just wish I knew how to keep peaches from weeping so much.(The peaches were soupy)”

  • “I replaced the sugar with brown sugar, and used three cans of peaches.It was great with the homemade vanilla ice cream we had”

  • “This was a great and simple recipethat came out delicious! I served it warm with a dalop of Creme Fraiche.”

  • “Takes about 75 mins from peeling the peaches to taking out of the oven.It is delicious with vanilla ice cream. The next time I make the crisp will use 1/3 to 1/2 of the sugar and cinnamon in the peaches instead of all the sugar and cinnamon in the topping. Peaches will be sweeter that way.”

  • “Very simple recipe to make! This is a refreshing treat that goes well with vanilla ice cream. My husband and I made this dessert disappear fast!”
