Amazing Peach Crisp

This is an AMAZING Peach Crisp!
It is one of those desserts that you
just can't stop eating.
I know that some of you don't believe me
because there is no chocolate in this
recipe but please trust me.
The only thing that keeps me from
eating the whole pan is that I know
what it is made of and it's not low
in calories.

The recipe is from Pioneer Women.
I read her blog often because she
takes step by step photos of the food
she makes and I love that.

Peach Crisp with Maple Cream Sauce

What you need:
6-8 Whole Fresh Peaches
1 cup Flour
½ cup Sugar
½ cup Light Brown Sugar, Firmly Packed
½ teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
½ teaspoons Ground Nutmeg
¼ teaspoons Salt
1 stick Butter (1/2 Cup)
½ whole Lemon
7 Tablespoons Real Maple Syrup -
2 for the peaches and 5 tbs for the sauce.
1-½ cup Whipping Cream
3 Tablespoons Light Corn Syrup


In a medium bowl, mix flour, sugar, light brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt using a fork or pastry cutter. Cut butter into small pieces and gradually add to flour mixture until evenly mixed. * I actually did this step in my food processor and used the pulse button to do all the work - just don't over do it.**

Peel peaches and slice. Place them into a bowl. Add the zest from half a lemon. Then cut the lemon in half and squeeze juice from lemon into the bowl with the peaches and zest. Add 2 tablespoons real maple syrup to peaches, stir well.

Pour peach mixture into a 9 inch pan and cover evenly with crumb topping. Cover with foil and bake at 350ºF for 15 minutes. After about 15 minutes remove the foil and bake for an additional 20 to 30 minutes or until crisp and brown on top.

Maple Cream Sauce:

Pour whipping cream into a saucepan. Add 5 tablespoons real maple syrup, 3 tablespoons corn syrup and stir over moderate heat until thickened and reduced by about one-third, approximately 15 minutes. Refrigerate mixture until it is cold and thick, or set the saucepan into a small bowl of ice. Drizzle sauce over peach crisp when you are ready to serve the dessert.( The peach crisp will be warm and the sauce will be cold).

Amazing, Amazing, Amazing!
