Peach Crisp

I have enjoyed our "peach season" this year.  There is just something about having fresh peaches on hand that just seems so summery.  One way I put them to use is by making a peach crisp.  My go-to recipe is actually a combination of a couple of different recipes.  And of course when eating it still warm from the oven, a scoop of ice cream is a must.

Peach Crisp
4 cups sliced fresh (or frozen) peaches
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1-1/2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
5 tablespoons butter or margarine
Toss peaches with 1/3 cup sugar and cinnamon.  Spoon into a lightly greased 8 inch square baking dish, or a 9 inch deep dish pie plate, and set aside.  Combine oats, brown sugar and flour.  Cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly.  Sprinkle on top of peaches.  Bake at 350 deg. for 25-30 minutes or until golden and bubbly.

That sounds delicious! We don't have home grown peaches over here, they're all imported so they just never taste that good! The best I've ever tasted are in the South of France ... just dripping with juice.

I can't imagine living in a place that doesn't grow peaches; but if the trade-off is a visit to the South of France, I think I could very easily deal with that :)

I didn't eat nearly enough fresh peaches this year! Peach crisp in my favorite! I should see if I can still find some good peaches around. :)
