If there is one fruit that you can count on my family devouring, it’s peaches. I practically stalk our local farmer’s market, waiting for them to arrive each summer. Sweet and juicy, they’re absolutely divine in all sorts of dishes, from appetizers to desserts. But let me tell you, if you are looking for a dessert that will garner umms, ahhhs, and more yums than you can imagine, this peach crisp is your ticket! I use less butter and sugar than traditional recipes, leaving you with the heady taste of peaches instead of sugar. If peaches are not in season, you can substitute another in-season fruit such as apples, pears, blueberries, or blackberries. For apple and pear crisps, I like to add 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon.
