Peachy Craisin Crisp

Ready to mix the Topping!
Got Peaches? Got Craisins? Got Oats?  If you have these ingredients just waiting in the wings - bake a delicious juicy colorful Peachy Craisin Crisp!  This dessert is the perfect addition to the menu for this holiday weekend!  Everyone will enjoy it!  No need to roll out a pie crust, either!

Ever since our local Peaches have been available, I've purchased them weekly.  The sweet fruit is so good in a fruit salad.  Some mighty tasty Peach Freezer Jam can be enjoyed all year, also- that is until your supply runs out!  Every week we devour the ripened fruit & I purchase them again.  Not this past week.  I did buy them, but I had the sole intention to bake a Peachy Craisin Crisp!  It was the perfect dessert for my DH's b'day!  A cake can be baked any time of the year, but local fresh Peaches come only once a year here in New England!

This is a family fave dessert!  My 8" x 8" rose colored Pyrex baking dish was filled with Peach slices.  About 1/4 cup Craisins were sprinkled on top & mixed in with the slices.  After 45 minutes of baking it came out of the oven.  Yum, yum, yum! 

To remove the Peach skins easily With a spoon place Peach in simmering water (enough water to cover piece of fruit) for about 25 seconds.  With spoon remove from water & cool until easy to handle.  Peel fruit & cut into slices.

This is a very yummy dessert!  During the summer months I don't roll out pie crusts & I do not like the taste of the commercially prepared crusts.  No pie crust needed here- this is a tasty treat!

It looks and sounds delicious. The local peaches aren't so good this year, mealy and they spoil quickly. Guess the weird weather this summer has caused that. So have bookmarked the recipe for better peaches. Have a great weekend!

This would be one of my favorite desserts! I made apple crunch and peach crisp and loved them both. The next time I cook peach slices, I'll add some craisins! Hugs!

Pam- Mother Nature rules every year. Our local Peaches have been really good. There's always next year! :)

Lavender Dreamer- Oh yes, add the Craisins for that extra zing!
