This easy Fresh Peach Crisp recipe is made from scratch with a light topping that doesn't contain oats. It's a delicious way to celebrate peach season!
How many of you like peaches? I absolutely, positively love them, and I'm always so happy when peach season rolls around. Last year, I shared a recipe for a super easy peach dump cake made with canned peaches, which is one of my family's favorite desserts. So this year, I thought I'd share this sweet and juicy Fresh Peach Crisp made with fresh peaches, which is another wonderful way to enjoy the taste of this versatile fruit!
A few years ago, Hubs and I took the kids peach picking at an organic farm not too far from here. It was in the middle of July, and it was incredibly hot out, and there were ants the size of elephants roaming around the orchard. But, but we came home with loads of tender, juicy fresh peaches, and I made a very tasty peach crisp for dessert that night.
The family absolutely refuses to go back to that orchard, no matter how hard I try to convince them, so I've been buying peaches at a local farmers market. They're still good, and they work very well for baking, but really, nothing compares to picking peaches straight off the tree. So if you have the chance, definitely go for it!

Hubby's mom used to make peach crisps without oats, and I followed his directions for the basic ingredients. Of course, I tweaked it a little!
Fresh peach crisp is best served warm, almost right out of the oven. Around here, some people don't even use plates!
You can eat it just like this, or you can make it even better by topping the whole thing off with a very generous spoonful of vanilla ice cream. Give it a minute, and the ice cream will slowly trickle down over the crisp, crunchy topping and slide down into the juicy peach filling. You can then enjoy it by the fork full or spoon full, whichever you prefer.
Certain people in our home, who shall remain nameless, kept on sneaking tastes of the peach crisp, and now all that's left of this wonderful dessert fits into a very, very small bowl. And, I'm positively sure that it will be completely gone by the end of the day! It's that good. Really!
