Tools for Success
8x8 or 9x9 pan
Reach for a square 8x8 or 9x9 baking pan for this recipe. I do recommend that you use a nonstick pan to prevent sticking.
You can buy a pastry cutter for folding the cold butter into the flour and oat mixture. You don't have to use this but it does help work the butter in easily and quickly.
Make sure you drain the juice off the canned peaches. Otherwise, it will be too wet of a filling and create a kind of a mushy texture to the crisp topping.
I love using rolled oats as it creates a chewy texture. Rolled oats can be used but it will be a lot softer of a topping.
Variations to Peach Crisp
Want to use canned cherries, blueberry pie filling or another type of fruit? Go right ahead and swap it out if you want a change in fruit. If you are using a pie filling just add the cinnamon no need for cornstarch as it is thick already.
Fresh Peaches or Frozen
Swap the canned peaches with sliced frozen or fresh peaches. I prefer to remove the skins off the peaches when I make crisps and cobblers. So that is your choice if you use fresh.
Gluten Free Flour
Consider swapping the flour with a gluten free flour. This is great if you want a gluten free dessert for your family.
Peach Crisp FAQs
Does this recipe double easily?
Go right ahead and reach for a 9x13 pan if you want to double the recipe. This recipe works great at doubling. Just mix up and bake for the same amount of time.
How do you make peach crisp healthier?
To make peach crisp healthier, use a smaller amount of butter and sugar in the topping, and replace some of the flour with oats or almond flour. You can also use a sugar substitute like stevia or honey instead of regular sugar.
How do you store leftover peach crisp?
To store leftover peach crisp, let it cool down to room temperature, then cover it with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and store it in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.
Can you freeze peach crisp?
Yes, peach crisp can be frozen. After baking, let it cool down to room temperature, then cover it tightly with plastic wrap and aluminum foil and store it in the freezer for up to 3 months. To reheat, let it thaw in the refrigerator overnight, then bake it in the oven until heated through.
