My family actually calls this peach cobbler but the crispy shortbread-type crust makes it a crisp. Very good with ice cream or sprinkled with pecans before baking.

  • Layer the peaches in a 9x13 inch baking pan. In a large bowl, mix the flour, sugar, salt and cinnamon. Slice the butter into chunks and mix it into the dry ingredients until it looks like pea size crumbs. Sprinkle crumbs over peaches.

  • Bake for 30 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until lightly golden.

Took this to a potluck. It was a hit! Used fresh peaches with skin on . Added a bit of brown sugar and cinnamon to the peach slices and a few dashes of nutmeg to the crumble mixture. Thanks for a great tasting and easy recipe! Read More

My grandmother was born and raised in the South, so though I grew up in the North, I grew up on peach cobbler and peach crisp. This recipe is good but perhapes mis-named. The recipe results in something more like a cobbler than a crisp. If you want something more like a COBBLER this recipe is GREAT. But if you are looking for a crisp I have the following suggestions. The first time I made the recipe I followed it exactly. The second time I made it I adjusted it. When I made it the second time I doubled the amount of peaches, and made only half of the topping. (The recipe makes a lot more topping than is needed.) I also changed the topping a little bit. 1. I added a cup of oats. 2. I doubled the cinnamon. 3. I used only 1 1/2 cubes of butter instead of 2 cubes. 4. Instead of 1 1/2 cups of white sugar I put in 3/4 cup brown sugar and 3/4 cup white sugar. 5. I also drizzled honey on top of the crumb topping before baking it. Read More

YUM! Did modify this a bit - I only made 1/2 recipe since I was low on peaches. Added 1/2 cup of oatmeal and 1/2 cup brown sugar to the topping. This was SO good. Am making it for the 2nd time this week right now! I used fresh peaches (with skins) the first time, but this time I'm using canned so we'll see. Read More

You didn't make it right. It calls for a big can of peaches and a cup of butter(2 sticks) not a pound(thats four sticks).I actually said when I submitted this recipe to add one to two sticks depending on how much people like.I have been making this for years and it comes out great everytime.

This was excellent! I used 2 large fresh firm peaches halved the recipe added 1/4 cup sugar and 2 tbs butter to the peaches to make more of a pie filling consistency. I cooked it in a loaf pan. It was still yummy crispy even though some peach liquid boiled up over the top of the toping. Really really good stuff here!!! I have also used apples and canned cherry pie filling with this and it has all been very good. Read More

Wow! This is incrediable! I had a craving for peach cobbler but I had everything except milk. I search for a recipe that did not list milk as an ingredient (didn't think that was possible) and I found this one! I must admit I was doubtful this would work but boy was I wrong! I followed the directions as listed except I put a little sugar and cinnamon on top. I would not recommend that because it came out too sweet - but it was still edible. I can't wait to make this for the Hoildays! Thank you!:) Read More

this was very good. It really is easy to make. I did use two cans of peaches which is what you need to cover the bottom. I've made before but peaches were in "season". Try this you will LOVE it. I did only use 1 cup of sugar...as I didn't want to be too sweet. thanks Read More
