Peach Crisp

It all started when Daniel had to go to Hilton Head and came back with these five big, beautiful, ripe peaches. Ten minutes later, they looked like this:
And 45 minutes after that, they came out of the oven hot and bubbly and too delicious for words...
Click here to find the recipe for this scrumptious peach crisp.

But first, here are our variations: I didn't make the crisp in ramekins, but rather in a baking dish, which pretty much doubled the baking time. Also, we thought the lemon flavor (zest and juice of one lemon) was a little too strong and overpowered the peach flavor. So, next time - and there will be a next time soon - I'll probably just use zest and juice of half a lemon. And maybe add a little ginger...



  1. Hmmm...Pfirsiche,
    das scheckt bestimmt super!

  2. it's 9 am i'm drooling, silke.

    i love cobblers.

    i'm of the opinion that fresh peaches should be served at all high level government meetings. it helps to start with an understanding of what's really important....

    have a great day, silke. the sun is shining.


  3. What could be better than a peach favorite fruit. Our little peach tree planted last spring is growing like crazy, now all I have to do is wait for about 3 more years and I too can have a peach crisp. Micki looked at some peaches for sale at a farmers market the other day, but declined to but very expensive. I told her that if we could grow a peach orchard in our field we would be rich.:)

  4. Yum! I LOVE any kind of fruit crisp. We're going to be getting some fresh peaches soon - for pie and preserves. But I'm going to add this to my list as well. :) Theresa

  5. YUM!! My mom always makes apple crisp but I must say that I'd probably prefer your peach crisp!! You may need to start a food blog!! :)

  6. Liebe Silke,

    ich freue mich über deine Koch- und Backkünste.
    In Gedanken essen wir mit dir und Daniel.

    Liebe Grüße
    Angela und Elisabeth

  7. I can just smell it.... wonderful !

  8. Don't forget the ice cream and make room for me at the table . When I make my peach crisp I add a tad of sour cream and almond extract Yummy!!! Oops I guess that is my cobbler.

  9. Boy does that look good!!! One of my favorite desserts in the world is peach cobbler made with old fashioned oats. This looks like a variation on my favorite recipe and I can't wait to try it sometime!...May add a few apples to it too for good measure! :-) Thanks for sharing!

  10. Coming over for tea and desert!!!
    If I leave now...hmmmmm.... :D


  11. I could have eaten the entire pan, not anymore. I can't even eat peach ice cream :(

    I am so mad at myself!

    BUT enjoy it for me! PLEASE! TSUP! TSUP!

  12. Silke - it has been so long since I had a wonderful peach crisp - and we have a few more Georgia peaches left in our fridge! Guess I will be making this! Looks wonderful!


  13. Oh yes! I made a fresh peach pie already ... isn't summer fruit fantastic, Silke?

    Auf Wiedersehen!
    Doris und Gizzy

  14. Oh my gosh....I want some NOW. That kind of stuff is my weakness. Can't wait to try it!
