Peach Crisp

Being born and raised in Georgia, it only makes sense that I love peaches, right? I grew up eating this peach crisp for special events. Whenever I'd come home from college my mom made sure to make it for me. I attempted to impress my boyfriend (now husband) and his roommates by making this for them. It didn't go so well the first time since I forgot to add the flour mixture (I was a novice baker back then). And what if a good friend has a sweet little baby? I make this!

Peach Crisp
serves 6-8

4 cups peaches (fresh or frozen)
3/4 cup sugar, divided (1/4 and 1/2)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup flour
1/2 cup butter (1 stick), softened

The How-To
Preheat the oven to 375.
In a medium sized bowl, toss together the peaches, 1/4 cup sugar, and the cinnamon. Place in a lightly greased 8x8 baking dish.

In another bowl, mix together the rest of the ingredients. You can either use your Kitchen-Aid or two knives to cut the butter into the flour and sugar mixture until crumbly. I let the butter sit out at room temperature for about 30-45 minutes before I used it. It made the cutting much easier.

Pour the mixture on top of the peaches. Bake for 35-45 minutes until the flour mix is a golden brown on top.


While everyone else was devouring dessert, I was snuggling up with this little guy.

Unfortunately he wasn't able to enjoy the peach crisp, but one day he will because his mama asked me for the recipe.
