Peach Crisp

Juicy, ripe peaches star in this easy-to-make dessert, but you can also substitute other stone fruits like nectarines or plums -- or even combine several.

    My guests loved this! I used 6 medium (palm-sized) peaches which were more than enough to fit into an 8"x 8" dish. I've tried this twice, the second time substituting half the white sugar with brown sugar in the topping which gave it more of a carmelized flavor. Much better!

    This was very good. I used pecans instead of almonds, and brown sugar to the topping as someone suggested. I also substituted Coconut Oil, warmed for 20 seconds in the microwave, instead of the Canola Oil. I will make again. Next time maybe adding some raisins.

    My peaches needed more time in the pot than the recipe suggested (about 8 minutes). Also, I definitely agree that pecans would be a nice alternative to the almonds. I also thought that (thawed) raspberries would be nice to mix with the peaches. Over all, this dish was a huge success and I will be making it again soon with those small adjustments!

    I used brown sugar to have a bit of a caramel flavor. I also used whole oats and whole wheat flour. It was really delicious!!

    I was a little suspicious of a crisp recipe that uses oil and water instead of butter, but I'm glad I gave it a try -- it was a little chewier than a topping made with butter, and very tasty. I used pecans instead of almonds, which I think worked very well with the peaches.

    I only used 5 peaches and my 8x8 square baking dish was pretty full!! I still used the same portions for the topping, I love my oats. I ended up having to put it under the broiler to brown on top. Overall - excellent recipe. I love the brightness the lemon juice adds

    This was a tasty dessert that we all enjoyed. I had found some frozen blackberries which I found in my freezer, which I needed to use before the garden produces some more, and added them to the peaches. It was a good combination, but then I am real partial to blackberries.
