Recipe Variations

Why not add more texture to the topping?  If you enjoy nuts you can add them to your peach crisp crumble topping too. Pecans and walnuts are perfect, but you can use any nuts really. 

Make it fruity.  It’s easy to customize these fruit crisps recipes using any fresh fruit. So, if you don’t like peaches, no worries, make it using other fruits such as apples or pears.

You can also mix fruits, apples, and pears, apples and peaches, or pears and peaches. Just peel and slice them as suggested before adding them to the crisp.

Why not add oats to the topping? You could also add some oats to the topping to give the peach crisp some extra crunch and texture.

Give it a drizzle. You could add a little bit of caramel sauce or maple syrup to sweeten this single serving peach crisp dessert up.

Can I use canned peaches? It would be best to avoid using canned peaches as this can add a lot more moisture and liquid to the peach mixture which will not give you the best results.

Instead, for the perfect peach crisp, you need to use fresh peaches. You can get sliced peaches in the grocery store as well.

As they are a stone fruit it can sometimes be difficult when you have fresh juicy peaches to get it just right for the fruit filling.

FAQ

What’s the difference between a peach crisp and a peach cobbler?

First things first, while a peach crisp and peach cobbler are two fruity desserts they are, in fact, very different.

The peach crisps have a crispier topping whereas a peach cobbler will use pie dough or biscuit dough as the topping.

A peach cobbler is a more filling and heavier dessert whereas we think the peach crisp is a little lighter.

You can also get a peach crumble that has a different texture on the top as well. But let’s not confuse things.

What should I serve with the peach crisp?

It would be lovely served with a scoop of ice cream, some extra peach slices for garnish, or even some whipped cream. This is such a great recipe that you will find an accompaniment to suit everyone’s tastes.

Why is my peach crisp soggy?

If your peach crisps are soggy then it may have meant there was more liquid within your fresh peaches.

If you find your ripe peaches are juicy you can mix spoke corn starch in with them to soak up the juices and avoid the crisp getting soggy.

You will want the crisp to be a golden brown color to make this perfect summer dessert.

Do you have to peel peaches for a peach crisp? 

It is advisable to get rid of peach skin. Peeling the peaches ensures that there isn’t a fibrous texture from the skin. This will help you to make the best peach crisp.

A vegetable peeler will make light work of this.

Should you refrigerate peach crisp?

A peach crisp can be stored in a sealed airtight container at room temperature for a few days. If you are not going to eat it within those few days then it is best to store it in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.

It doesn’t need to be refrigerated straight away.

However, a freshly baked peach crisp is always best served straight away.
