A farmer's market sets up Thursdays and Saturdays just down the road from us during the warmer months of the year. I stopped by this past Saturday morning and came home with a bag of soft, fragrant peaches. Several needed to be used immediately, so I looked at some recipes and put together this crisp. Fresh, juicy fruit topped with crunchy, crumbly topping with flavors of cinnamon and almond. Do I even have to tell you it pairs well with whipped cream and vanilla ice cream?
4 large, fresh peaches, peeled, pitted and sliced
1 c. blueberries
1/2 tsp. almond extract (optional)
1-2 T. flour (use more if your peaches are very juicy)
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 c. AP flour
1/2 c. white sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. (heaping) old fashioned oats
1/4 c. + 2 T. butter, softened
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Grease an 8x8 baking dish. In a small bowl, toss together fruits, 1 T. flour, almond extract, and lemon juice, and layer in bottom of pan.
- In another bowl, mix flour, sugars, salt, cinnamon, and oats. Cut/mix in 1/4 c. butter until mixture is moist and crumbly. Top fruit with the mixture and dot with remaining butter.
- Bake for 45 minutes until fruit is bubbly and topping is browned. Serve while still slightly warm.
A couple other things...
I realize most of you probably already use a feed reader, but if you typically read this blog by visiting the actual page, did you know you can subscribe to my posts and read them in a feed reader? A feed reader (I use Google Reader) allows you to read posts from all your favorite blogs in one place, without having to go to each to see if there's anything new. It's also easy to skip over content you're not as interested in. Check out the button to subscribe under my mug shot near the top of the page over yonder. --->
I also have a blog called Mama Thinks Funny. I update it infrequently, but it's an outlet for thoughts and happenings that strike me as interesting, humorous, or weird, and that don't quite have a place on my homemaking blog. Since I actually updated it a few days ago (I wrote about one of our less beautiful memories from our vacation a few weeks back: Sara Smells Suspicious Smells at the Sea Shore), I thought I'd mention it.
