A crisp is the way to go when you’re not in the mood (or don’t have time) to deal with pie dough—it’s an easy route to a memorable dessert. Here, the straightforward filling is a mixture of brown sugar, lemon juice, cornstarch, vanilla, and fresh peaches. Dump everything into a baking dish and top with a generous layer of crunchy oat-and-brown-sugar streusel. Serve with scoops of Cinnamon Ice Cream or a mound of Easy Whipped Cream for a simple end to a warm summer day.

Instructions

For the topping:
  1. 1Heat the oven to 425°F and arrange a rack in the middle.
  2. 2Place all of the ingredients in a large bowl. With your fingertips, blend the butter pieces into the dry ingredients until large clumps form and the flour and butter are completely incorporated, about 3 minutes. Crumble the clumps into small pieces the size of kidney beans, then refrigerate the streusel while you make the filling for the pie.

For the filling:

  1. 1Place the brown sugar, lemon juice, cornstarch, vanilla, and salt in a large bowl and whisk to combine. Add the peaches and stir until evenly coated.
  2. 2Transfer the mixture to an 8-by-8-inch glass or ceramic baking dish and arrange it in an even layer. Sprinkle the reserved topping evenly over the peaches.
  3. 3Bake until the topping is browned and crisp, about 20 to 25 minutes. Place the dish on a wire rack to cool for at least 30 minutes before serving.

    2010 Walla Faces Verlynn Riesling

    A warm peach crisp with a dollop of cream, iced or whipped, calls for a sweet wine, and we found just the right amount of beguiling sweetness in the 2010 Walla Faces Verlynn Riesling. This wine could have been created as the perfect complement to this fresh peach dessert as it mimics the flavor with it's own white peach and apricot flavors. This is a match made in heaven!
