I have had this recipe on the brain ALL day today. This morning a fellow blogger was asking for peach recipes. I have a crisp recipe that is just to die for! So, when I commented on her post about what I would do if I had an abundance of peaches laying around, all I could do was think of that crisp!
Low and behold, I was at the grocery store, like I seem to be about 5 days a week, and peaches were not only cheap, but they smelled wonderful!! I gave in to my craving and picked a bunch up.
Now this recipe is written for apples, but I have made it with all kinds of fruits, peaches is by far one of the better choices. But you see, it's not so much what kind of fruit you choose, the crumb topping is just so darn good, it makes them all tasty!
Normally I make this in a 9 x 13 pan, but I had purchased these cute little crocks to use for french onion soup this winter, and they were so stinkin' cute I decided to use them for the crisp, to give them a test drive. Aren't they precious??

I'm not sure what was going on with the flash on my camera, but it super exposed all of the pictures tonight? I only have one crock left, but I promised it to my oldest who is out whooping it up before school starts, so these pictures will just have to suffice.
I will write the recipe as I have it, for apples. Make changes as needed.
2 T flour
1/2 c sugar
1 t cinnamon
1/4 t salt
7 c sliced apples
2 c oatmeal
2 c flour
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t baking powder
1 t cinnamon
2 c brown sugar
1 1/3 butter
In a bowl, combine topping ingredients, working with fingertips until mixture is crumbly. Reserve.
Stir together flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl. Halve and core apples, peel and slice. Toss the apples with the cinnamon flour mixture. Spread apples evenly into a greased 9x10 pan.
Sprinkle topping over apples.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until brown. Serve warm or cold. Top with ice cream.
For the peach crisp, I used the same amount of fruit, and I used everything except the salt. I have made this many different ways, would love to know if you make it, what you used!
One more over exposed picture that didn't do this melting ice cream on warm crisp justice...
trust me, it tasted terrific!
