Crisps are wonderfully easy to make. This Blueberry Coconut Crisp is another of my favorites. They really are one of the simplest ways to turn ripe summer fruit into a juicy and flavorful dessert.

This Peach Crisp recipe is a wonderful way to use up ripe summer peaches, but it also works well with canned peaches or frozen peaches.

It has a thick layer of brown sugar streusel on top. I like to have a lot of steusel in proportion to the fruit. If you don’t, you can cut back on the steusel amount.

Fresh peach filling

 

The filling is a simple mixture of sliced peaches, sugar, and cornstarch. You can use either yellow or white peaches.

It can be made even quicker with canned or frozen peaches since peeling and slicing the peaches is the most time consuming part, but I think the taste of fresh peaches is best. You will need about 7 to 8 medium peaches. To easily peel the peaches, place them whole in boiling water for about 30 seconds. Let them cool slightly and the skin will readily peel off of the flesh.

If you use canned peaches, be sure to use the ones packed in fruit juice and not in syrup and drain them well.

  1. Tried following this recipe, but the “crust” is not able to be sprinkled with that cold butter. It just becomes a big blob of oats and sugar. Not sure how you expected me to sprinkle that.
    35 min in the oven and I just want to throw it out.

  2. How about fresh mango ripe off the tree? I thought that would be delicious and probably don’t need much sugar at all mangoes are very sweet. What do you think?Also ive made your peach crisp and its delicious!
