Peach Crisp for One


Sometimes I just want a little treat but I don't want to make a whole batch of something.  A crisp is a great solution because It's very quick and doesn't require any crazy ingredients.  It's fruit based and perfect for enjoying whatever fruit is in season.    

Bake in any small oven safe baking dish like a mini pie pan or ramekin.   

serves 1. 

 Single Serving Peach Crisp 

1 large or 2 small peaches, pitted and sliced

1/2 teaspoon cornstarch

pinch sugar

pinch salt

couple turns black pepper

1 teaspoon lemon juice

2 tablespoons oats

1 tablespoon light brown sugar

pinch cinnamon + nutmeg

1/2 tablespoon cold butter

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  In a bowl toss peach slices, cornstarch, pinch sugar, salt, black pepper and lemon juice.  (I just use my hands.)  Transfer peach mix to baking vessel.  Wipe out bowl and mix oats, light brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.   Work butter in with fingers until a course crumb forms.  Cover peach mix with oat mix.  

Bake 30 minutes.
