Peach Crisp For 2!

posted by Andrea | 09/4/2018

It’s peach season… and our family LOVES peaches!

We’ve been eating them fresh at almost every meal, on yogurt, on ice cream, in pie, in salsa, with chicken, and even on flatbread (refer to the end of the post for recipes!)

This year, we got the bulk of our peaches from the Washington State Stone Fruit Growers… and just like our cherry shipment earlier this summer, they were sent straight from Yakima, Washington (close to where Dave grew up)!

Wow, are they yummy!

Definitely the sweetest fresh peaches I’ve had in a long time… and perfect for a sweet evening snack (just for Dave and me!)

Our kids aren’t big pie, crisp, or cobbler fans (seriously, what’s wrong with them!) and since those desserts are definitely “best fresh”, I always wait to make them until we have company.

However, Dave and I both wanted some peach crisp the other day… so I made a little bitty batch in my cast iron skillet, and not one bite of it went to waste!

Recipe for Peach Crisp (for 2)

{Print Recipe}

INGREDIENTS: 

  • 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

DIRECTIONS: 

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF
  • Grease a small baking dish or small cast iron skillet and fill with peaches
  • Sprinkle cinnamon over peaches (you can add a bit of sugar too but our peaches were SO sweet)
  • In a small bowl, mix oats, flour, brown sugar, and 1/4 t. cinnamon
  • “Cut in” butter with your fingers until 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!

Oh my word… it was SO good!

The warm peach crisp paired with the cold (melty) ice cream, the crunchy oat topping, and lots of cinnamon was such a yummy treat for our evening snack (we definitely don’t have this every night!)

Thanks to our surplus of delicious Washington State stone fruits, we might have to splurge on this snack at least once more before peach season is over!

    Andrea,
    Did you use Gilbert’s Orchard. Thinking of ordering if it isn’t too late.

    hmmmm… good question! I’m actually not sure what orchard they came from, they just came from Yakima Washington via the Washington State Stone Fruit association 🙂

    I just made a peach pie this weekend with peaches from Hood River Oregon (we are lucky enough to live close enough to buy direct from the orchards!!)

    Peach Pie is my absolute favorite PIE!!!

    We have also been eating them in everything, yogurt parfaits with peaches granola and raspberries. Peaches in crepes for breakfast. Fruit salad with peaches, bananas, strawberries and whip cream on top!

    YUMMY!!

    That looks very delicious! Will surely try it.
    You should consider moving to Washington, Andrea. Definitely, we have lots of things to love about our State.❤

    I know — our kids didn’t get our sweet tooth. They like candy and cookies, but not many “desserts”.

    I live in western Washington and can’t wait to make this! We’ve just been here a few years and haven’t had Yakima peaches-now I’m going to 🙂 being from western NY (good apples!) I always go for apples here (amazing flavor and so many more varieties). Time to branch out.

    Do you use the White whole wheat flour as you would regular white flour?

    haha — I KNEW someone would comment on this!
    I only had a little bit of this white whole wheat left and wanted to use it up so I could toss the bag! But yes, I do often use white whole wheat flour in place of regular all purpose flour. The color of the baked goods will still be slightly darker and the taste of breads or pancakes will be slightly different, but nothing like the drastic change in color/taste using regular whole wheat flour.
    It’s a good compromise for our family right now 🙂
