Peach Crisp

This is my busiest work week of the year, so I thought I'd keep it simple and share a yummy easy recipe on this gloomy Thursday.

Last week my MIL texted me that she had some extra peaches and did I want them?
She said they weren't particularly tasty so i decided to make a crisp in hope of redeeming them.

First take 5-6 large peaches cut a small on the bottom of each

Then drop them in boiling water for 1-2 minutes (NOT 5 minutes like I did)

Remove and allow to cool (some water/juice will leak out. This is good)

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350

& mix:
1/3 c brown sugar
1/2 c quick oats
1/3 c flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon sugar
pinch of nutmeg
pinch of salt

Cut up 6 tbls of cold butter and add them to the mixture

mix with a pastry cutter or your hands (much easier to use your hands!)

until moist and crumbly 
(try your hardest not to eat it all!)

Once the peaches are cooled enough to handle, get a sick satisfaction from peeling the slimy skin off the peaches in the larges pieces possible

It's as satisfying as popping a zit

try it sometime!

When all the peaches are skinless and shiny

cut them in half, remove the pit and slice them (I did about 10 slices per peach)

Toss the peaches slices in a mixing bowl with:
1 tbls of sugar
1 tsp of corn starch
1 tsp of fresh lemon juice (all I had was a lime)

Pour peaches into a large casserole dish or 7x11 baking dish (or two small casserole dishes) and top with crumble mixture

(I made two dishes so I could bring one to work.  I also topped one of them with chopped walnuts)

Pop them in the oven for 35-45 minutes

Finally, forget to take a photo of the crispy, golden brown, bubbling dish and dive right in!
Enjoy warm with vanilla ice cream or room temperature with vanilla yogurt. NOM.

You take the peel off?? Now I understand why some peach crisps are amazing and others are just not. Looks delicious!
