Each month we have an inspiration photo that we base our posts on. This month the theme is peach recipes and our inspiration image is from organics.net. Doesn’t it make your mouth water??
There are several yummy recipes at the bottom of the post so be sure to visit them all. Now let’s get to my recipe for this tasty challenge.
Individual Peach Crisp Recipe
Although there’s really not much better than fresh local peaches on their own, they’re also great in cobblers and crisps. Baking them brings out more of their sweetness and eating them warm gives you a feeling of comfort and happiness.
For this recipe I used some beautiful freestone peaches that I got from The Peach Truck. Are you familiar with them? Their peaches are heavenly! They’re based in Nashville and make stops throughout the south and east during peach season. I’ve gotten peaches from them for several years now and am hooked!!
You can place an order on their site and pick it up when they’re in your area, or you can have them delivered directly to your home, just like Harry & David does with pears. They also sell jams, salsas, Georgia pecans, and more. If you’re interested in trying them, you can save $5 off your order with my referral link: The Peach Truck
Although I used fresh peaches for this recipe, you could also use canned peaches. If you do use those, be sure to drain off any excess liquid so the crisp stays crisp and doesn’t get soggy.
Ingredients for Individual Peach Crisps
There’s nothing complicated about this recipe and you probably have most of the basic ingredients in your pantry. In addition to peaches, here’s what you’ll need:
- Brown sugar
If you prefer, you can also add chopped pecans as well as nutmeg or ground cloves.
This recipe calls for allowing the peaches to sit in a mixture of brown sugar and cinnamon. The flavors are infused into the fruit and elevate them to another level of yumminess.
Since peaches are somewhat delicate you’ll want to be careful when handling them. Gently fold the in brown sugar and cinnamon to the sliced peaches with a spatula to coat them completely.
After you mix the topping, sprinkle it on top of the peaches and press it down slightly.
Tip for cutting butter: To make cutting the butter easier, keep it in the refrigerator until you’re ready to use it.
When the topping is slightly golden brown and crisp it’s time to take the peach crisp out of your oven.
NOTE: These little white baking dishes came from Aldi several months ago but you could use these small baking dishes.
You can eat the peach crisp as is or add a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream. We tried them both ways and prefer vanilla ice cream.
Another of my favorite ways to eat peaches is in ice cream. See my recipe for that here: Homemade Peach Ice Cream Recipe. And here’s the recipe for this scrumptious peach crisp:
- 4 cups peaches, peeled and sliced. I used 6 peaches. NOTE: if using canned peaches you'll need (2) 15 oz. cans.
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 3/4 cup light brown sugar, divided
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter, cut into small pieces
- 1 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon, divided
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 3/4 cup chopped pecans (optional)
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg or cloves (optional)
For the peaches
- Add sliced peaches to a medium bowl and add 1/4 cup of brown sugar and 1/4 tsp. of cinnamon.
- Stir gently to coat all of the slices.
- Let sit for about an hour and drain excess liquid.
- Preheat your oven to 350. Add the peaches to 8 small baking dishes. Note: I've also baked them in these little bakers: Mini Coquette
For the topping
- Add flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar, butter, 1 tsp. cinnamon, and salt to a medium bowl. You can also all 1/2 tsp. of nutmeg or ground cloves if desired. Blend together with a pastry cutter until crumbly.
- Gently stir oats into the mixture. If you're using pecans add them with the oats.
- Sprinkle the topping over the peaches. Press lightly.
- Bake for about 20 minutes or until the topping is crisp and slightly browned.
- Allow to cool slightly.
- Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream if desired.
If you prefer to make one larger dish instead of individual ones, you can use an 8" square baker and increase the baking time by about 5 minutes.
For an alternative small baker, I recommend these: Mini Coquettes
You can make as few as one of these or as many as you want. For 4 or less, I use our Breville counter top oven and don't have to heat up our large oven.
