I love peaches. I love everything about them. They are juicy, tart, and sweet. Peaches fall apart so deliciously when cooked.
A summer is not complete without peaches. And towards the end of the summer I love this crisp.
7-9 fresh peaches, peeled, pitted, and sliced
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 c all purpose flour
1 c granulated sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
sprinkling of freshly grated nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c butter
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F, and grease an 8 inch square baking dish. Place the peaches in the bottom of the baking dish, and pour over the vanilla. In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Rub the butter into the flour mixture using your fingers until the mixture resembles crumbs.
Sprinkle the flour mixture in an even layer over the top of the peaches, and bake in the preheated oven for about 45 minutes, until the peaches are bubbling and the topping is browned.
