Peaches are plentiful in Texas. I can't think of a better use for them than to make a peach crisp. This one adds a yummy maple cream sauce (which you could leave off if you prefer). This recipe comes from The Pioneer Woman. *Prep time includes chilling of the maple cream sauce.*

How to Make Peach Crisp with a Maple Cream Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Maple Cream Sauce: Pour the heavy cream into a heavy saucepan. Add the maple syrup and corn syrup. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the sauce is thickened and reduced by a third, about 20 minutes. Chill for at least an hour before serving over the warm peach crisp.
  2. Peach Crisp: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Start with the crumb mixture. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Cut the cold butter into pieces. Add the butter to the bowl and use a fork or pastry blender to cut it into the flour mixture. The mixture should resemble a moist, coarse meal. Place the peaches in a bowl. Add the lemon zest to the peaches. Mix in the lemon juice and maple syrup and gently stir the peaches to combine. Pour the peaches into a 9-inch square or 8x12-inch baking dish. Top with the crumb mixture, evening out the surface with a fork. Cover tightly with foil and bake for about 15 minutes. Remove foil and bake 30 minutes more, or until the topping is crisp and golden brown. If the topping appears underdone, continue baking in 10 minute increments until it is done.
  3. Spoon the warm crisp onto a plate and drizzle the chilled maple cream sauce over the top. Enjoy!
