Crisp vs Cobbler vs Crumble?

Generally, crisps are made with an oatmeal and nut (or coconut) topping while cobblers are baked under a biscuit or pie dough topping, and crumbles are baked under a streusel topping made with flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon.

Easy Peach Crisp Ingredients

Made with real, wholesome ingredients, fruit crisp recipes can be enjoyed with any variety of seasonal fruit.

Peaches – Fresh, frozen, or a can of drained peaches all work great in a crisp! Peeling fresh peaches is optional, but not necessary.

Oatmeal – Any oats will do in a peach crisp. Old-fashion (rolled) oats, regular or quick oats will all work.

Coconut – Besides coconut, peach crisp can be made with chopped walnuts, pecans, or pistachios! Saute coconut (or nuts) in a dry pan until lightly toasted to intensify their flavor and make them extra crunchy.

Topping – Gluten-free flour blends and brown sugar sweeteners will work too.

Variations – Why not toss in a few blueberries, sliced strawberries, or even small slices of fresh rhubarb? Anything goes.

How to Make Peach Crisp

Fresh peaches baked under a crispy topping are the ultimate summer treat. And this recipe is perfect for even the most novice bakers – just sprinkle on the topping and bake.

  1. Prepare the topping per recipe below.
  2. Mix peaches, flour, and sugar in a large bowl.
  3. Divide the peaches evenly between the ramekins and sprinkle topping over each one.
  4. Bake until the edges are bubbling and the top is lightly browned. Let cool before serving.

Make It As A Casserole

To bake peach crisp in a casserole dish, assemble as directed in the recipe using 1 ½ quart baking dish and bake until bubbling. Cover with foil if the top is getting too brown during baking.

Tips And Tricks

  • Prepare the topping (even extra batches!) up to two days ahead and freeze extras for later. Peaches can be prepped up to a day ahead, just toss them with a little lemon juice and keep them in a covered container in the refrigerator until ready to use.
  • If using canned peaches for this recipe, save the juice and freeze into ice cubes for sweet tea or a summer cocktail.
  • Single-serve peach crisp with fresh peaches allows everyone to add their own toppings like a drizzle of caramel sauce, a dollop of whipped cream, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Leftovers

  • Cover leftover ramekins of peach crisp with plastic wrap and keep them in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Enjoy them cold from the refrigerator (so satisfying on a hot summer day!), or warm them in the microwave and then place them under the broiler until the topping is browned and crispy again.

    1. Yes, simply defrost your peaches and use them in place of the fresh peaches. Do not drain the peaches. Enjoy Rita!
