For the Topping:

  • 1/3 cup Flour
  • 1/3 cup Rolled Oats (traditional)
  • 1/3 cup Brown Sugar
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1 stick Butter (cubed and chilled)

For the Fruit Mix:

  • 6 – 8 Peaches (peeled and cut into wedges)
  • 1 cup Walnuts (roasted and chopped) (*may substitute for pecans)
  • 2 tablespoons Butter (softened)
  • 2 tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • Juice and Zest of 1 Lemon
  • Pinch of Salt

Preheat the oven to 350°F and put your 10-inch cast iron skillet in to warm with the oven. This is an important step or else you are essentially putting the crisp in a cold oven!

For the Topping:

Combine the flour, brown sugar, and salt together in a large bowl. Use your fingers to work and crumble the butter into the dry mix. The final product should have butter the size of blueberries.

For the Fruit Mix:

Put the peaches and walnuts (or pecans) in another large bowl. Add the butter, brown sugar, lemon juice, zest, and salt to the fruit-nut mix and toss.

Place the fruit mix in your hot 10-inch cast iron skillet and sprinkle the crisp topping on top.

Bake for 25 – 35 minutes until golden and bubbly.

Serve hot and enjoy with a scoop of ice cream!
