Recipe: Peach Crisp

Friday, August 29, 2014

I love 3 day weekends… who doesn't? I feel like 3 day weekends are the perfect excuse to make a fun dessert like Peach Crisp for you Labor Day weekend.

FULL HONESTY DISCLOSURE: Okay, I've actually made this crisp TWO weekends in a row. And they weren't even 3 day weekends. I think I have a problem. But the peaches this time of year are JUST perfect. [And any time I can justify a dessert as a fruit serving I will.]

Easy peach crisp recipe using fresh or frozen peaches with a crumbly cinnamon and oat topping.
