Peach Crisp Recipe


Hi, I’m Ashley Rose and I live in Turkey. Let me just say that the go-to dessert where I live is Baklava, and although the flakey dessert covered in simple syrup is delicious, it’s nice to get a taste of home.

There’s something about warm fruit dusted with cinnamon that has a nostalgic appeal. My soul is soothed by the combination. Furthermore, I often feel delighted to offer a recipe for fruit crisp to my Turkish neighbors and family members. Especially this peach crisp recipe, it’s a one-of-a-kind dessert that never fails to satisfy.

These days are filled with summer events with so many places to go and see. Soon, the family will head to Usak to harvest fresh oregano from the mountains. I’d love to share that experience with you all in a blog post sometime soon…

How to Make Peach Crisp

I enjoy making fruit crisps of any kind since they are easy to put together and the streusel topping is simple to make.

1.) Peel the skin and remove the seed from the peaches.

If your peaches are on the firmer side, you can use a potato peeler to do this step. If your peaches are on the softer side, I like to simply peel back the skin with my fingers to get the job done. Give the peaches a rough dice and you’re ready for the next step.

2.) Slighty sautee the peaches.

Add a tablespoon of butter to the saucepan along with the peaches, some sugar, cornstarch, a pinch of salt, and a dusting of cinnamon. Your kitchen is going to smell amazing. Sautee for 5-7 minutes, the goal is to release the juices from the peaches and the cornstarch is going to make the juices glossy and prevent a soggy streusel topping.

3.) Make a Chunky Streusel Topping.

This is the most exciting part. What I like best about this streusel is the addition of chia seeds. It’s not only attractive, but it’s also an excellent way to get chia seeds into your diet. Simply combine the flour, oats, chia seeds, a bit of salt, and sugar. Combine the flour mixture with melted butter, massage to form clumps, and you have a lovely streusel topping.

Ingredients to Make the Best Peach Crisp Topping

  • Flour: whenever measuring your flour, always spoon your flour into the measuring cup. If you scoop directly from the flour bag, you put the streusel at risk of being too dry.
  • Oats: I like the addition of oats. They are delicious and add a nice texture and an overall hearty look.
  • Sugar: use cane sugar, powdered sugar, or even coconut sugar. All would work well here.
  • Chia Seeds: imagine a polka-dotted peach crisp. Chia seeds offer crunch, and nutrients, and have an overall neutral flavor, making them ideal for sneaking in.
  • Melted butter: I find that melted butter creates a nice crumble faster.
