One of my favorite desserts as a child was apple crisp.
Now that I'm older, I've realized that it's not just apples that work deliciously in a crisp.
This lovely bit of tastiness is the peach crisp. I'd gotten some lovely, and very ripe, peaches that needed to get eaten. This was the way I went about it.
Here's the recipe, but it's really more like a guideline, as I didn't really do any measuring.
8 very ripe peaches, peeled, cored, and sliced
1/2 C. granulated sugar
1/2 C. plus 2 T. all purpose flour
1/2 t. ground ginger
1 stick (1/2 C.) butter, divided
1/2 C. brown sugar, packed
1/2 C. old fashioned rolled oats
1/8 t. baking powder
1/8 t. baking soda
Preheat oven to 375º F. Combine the peaches, granulated sugar, 2 T. of flour, and ground ginger in a 9"x9" baking dish. Cut 3 T. of the butter into pieces and evenly place on top of the peaches. In a medium bowl, combine the remaining flour, brown sugar, oats, baking powder, and baking soda. Melt the remaining butter, and add to the oat mixture. Mix well with a fork until all the mixture is moistened and is coming together in clumps; sprinkle evenly over the peach mixture. Place in the oven and bake for 30-35 min. or until the top is browned and the filling is bubbling.
This is best served warm over vanilla ice cream.
