Peach Crisp is such a family favorite in my house. I love to buy this delicious fruit and transform it into this great dessert. There just is something about a crunchy oat topping with sweet peaches and a little bit of vanilla ice cream that just tastes like summer! In addition to the recipe below, I've also included a short video to show you how to peel and section the peaches for this recipe!
Prep Time (including boiling the water 40 minutes. Baking Time 45 minutes)
Preheat the oven to 350'F. And prepare the peaches to be skinned by placing a large pot of water to boil, and prepping a large bowl of ice water. While you are waiting for the water to boil, combine all of the topping ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside.
When the water starts to boil, place about 5 peaches at a time in the boiling water using a slotted spoon. Allow the peaches to stay in the water for about 1-2 minutes. Then quickly transfer them into the bowl of ice water using the slotted spoon. Allow them to sit in the cold water for about 1 minute, then drain and prepare a new bowl of ice water. Repeat with the rest of the peaches.
Once the peaches have been prepped, use a paring knife to pull away the skin, and cut the peaches into sections by cutting wedges off from the pit. Each peach should be cut into about 8-10 sections and placed in a large bowl. Once all the peaches have been skinned and cut, mix the rest of the filling ingredients in a small cup and stir into the peaches.
Transfer the peaches into a 9x13" pan and crumble the topping mixture evenly over the peaches. Bake at 350'F for 40-45 minutes or until the peaches are bubbly.
Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream
