HOW TO MAKE THIS DELICIOUS PEACH CRISP
- Preheat the oven to 350°F and set a rack in the middle position.
- Butter a 2-qt baking dish.
- Make the peach filling:
- In a large bowl, combine the peaches, lemon juice, granulated sugar, cornstarch, vanilla, and salt.
- Mix well to coat the peaches evenly.
- Make the streusel topping:
- In a medium bowl, mix together the brown sugar, flour, oats, pecans, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt, using your fingers to rub out any lumps of brown sugar.
- Add the soft butter and mix with a spoon until the mixture is crumbly (go ahead and use your hands if it’s easier)
- Transfer the peaches to the prepared baking dish and press into an even layer. Sprinkle the streusel evenly over top.
- Bake the crisp for 40 to 45 minutes, until the topping is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.
- Remove from the oven, and cool for at least 20 minutes before serving.
- Serve with ice cream or whipped cream
