Best Peach Crisp

This recipe, found in the June 2018 Bon Apetit is from B’s Cracklin’ BBQ.  I halved the recipe to fit in a 9” pie plate, but you could easily fit it into an 8×8 or 9×9 square pan, or double it and bake it in a 9×13 dish.  It is outstanding!  It has less sugar than other similar recipes, but I promise you’ll never miss it! Superb with fresh peaches!

The crumble topping is absolutely the best – crispy edges, chewy and buttery.  Everything you want in a crisp!

  • 1/2 c (1 stick) Butter, cut into small chunks

(Optional) For Serving

Prepare the Peaches

  1. To easily peel peaches, dip each into a pot of boiling water for 20 seconds, then plunge into icy water.  Peel should come of super-easily.  Then pit and slice peaches into 1/2”-thick slices.
  2. In a large bowl, place the peach slices, sugar and 1T AP flour.  Mix to combine, then set aside while your prepare the crumble and preheat the oven, about 30 minutes.  Stir mixture occasionally.

Prepare the Crumble

  1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt.  Using an electic mixer at low speed, gradually add in the butter pieces.  Once all of the butter is in the bowl, turn the mixer up to Medium speed, and continue mixing until the butter is fully incorporated, meaning there are no dry bits left.  This will take 1-3 minutes, so be sure to watch.
  2. Preheat oven to 350F.
