It’s peach season here in West Michigan, and our family LOVES peaches!
We’ve been eating them fresh on yogurt, on ice cream, in pie, in salsa, with chicken, and even on flatbread (recipes linked at the end of the post.)
This year, we purchased our peaches from a local orchard, although in the past, we’ve gotten them shipped from the Washington State Stone Fruit Growers in Yakima, Washington (close to where Dave grew up)!
Believe it or not, our kids aren’t big peach crisp fans (I know, it’s crazy) so I usually wait to make this dessert until we have company over as I prefer to eat it fresh from the oven (it’s not nearly as good after it sits overnight.)
However, we aren’t having much company these days…
Can you relate?
Instead of waiting for company to come or “forcing” our kids to eat a dessert they don’t care for, I decided to make a little bitty batch of peach crisp in my baby-size cast iron skillet.
A little at-home date night treat for Dave and me. 🥰
It was SOOOOOO good!
This easy recipe is perfect for you and a special someone… just enough for a taste, but not so much that you over-indulge or eat way too much.
Of course, if you’re baking for a crowd, you can definitely double, triple, or quadruple my recipe. Or, better yet, use this recipe for peach almond crisp instead.
Either way, peach season is short, so make sure you grab yourself a few peaches and enjoy them before summer is over.
- 3 firm but ripe peaches; peeled and sliced
- cinnamon to sprinkle over peaches
- 4 T. oats
- 3 T. flour
- 2 T. brown sugar
- 1/4 t. cinnamon
- 2 T. chopped pecans (optional)
- 2 T. cold butter
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Grease a small baking dish or small cast iron skillet and fill with peaches.
Sprinkle cinnamon over peaches and set aside.
In a small bowl, mix oats, flour, brown sugar, and 1/4 t. cinnamon.
"Cut in" butter with your fingers until the mixture is crumbly.
Sprinkle oat mixture over peaches.
Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes (or until topping is crunchy).
Serve immediately with ice cream and/or whipped cream with another sprinkle of cinnamon!

This yummy treat only took a few minutes to throw together, and the combination of warm peach crisp, cold (melty) ice cream, crunchy oat topping, and lots of cinnamon was just fantastic.
Thanks to our surplus of peaches, we’ll enjoy this late-night treat at least once more before peach season is over!
