I'm at my mom's house, where there has been a bumper crop of peaches. Lots and lots of peaches all over the place! Yesterday we spent all day canning peaches. This morning I headed back over to do some more canning. But first I took several of the more ripe peaches, and made this yummy crisp.
5 cups fresh or frozen peaches, sliced (if using frozen, thaw but do not drain)
2-4 tbsp. sugar
1/2 cup regular oats
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
Dash black pepper (optional, this is my "secret ingredient")
1/4 cup butter or margarine
Peel and slice peaches if using fresh, or thaw if using frozen. Do not drain frozen peaches. Place in a 9-inch round cake pan. Stir in sugar.
In a mixing bowl, combine oats, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pepper if desired. Cut in butter. Sprinkle over peaches.
Bake at 375 for 30-35 minutes, or 40 minutes if using thawed frozen peaches.
Serve warm with ice cream!
