Description

I don’t know what to say. This is Gee’s recipe, and it’s so good.

Brace yourselves, people.

Ingredients

  • 5 whole To 6 Whole Fresh Peaches (best When Not Overly Ripe Or Soft)
  • 1 cup Flour
  • ½ cups Sugar
  • ½ cups Light Brown Sugar, Firmly Packed
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoons Ground Nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 stick Butter (1/2 Cup)
  • ½ whole Lemon
  • 7 Tablespoons Real Maple Syrup, Divided
  • 1-½ cup Whipping Cream
  • 3 Tablespoons Light Corn Syrup

Preparation

In a medium bowl, mix flour, sugar, light brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt using a fork or pastry cutter. Cut butter into small pieces and gradually add to flour mixture until evenly mixed.

Peel peaches into a bowl. Add the zest from half a lemon. Squeeze juice from lemon half and stir in with peaches and zest. Add 2 tablespoons real maple syrup to peaches, stir well.

Pour peach mixture into a small pan (8” or 9” square) and cover evenly with crumb topping. Cover with foil and bake at 350ºF for 15 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 20 to 30 minutes or until crisp and brown on top.

Maple Cream Sauce:

Pour whipping cream into a saucepan. Add 5 tablespoons real maple syrup, 3 tablespoons corn syrup and stir over moderate heat until thickened and reduced by about one-third, approximately 15 minutes. Refrigerate mixture until it is cold and thick, or set the saucepan into a small bowl of ice (the ice will melt and turn into ice water). Stirring your mixture, it will cool and thicken in about 15 minutes. Drizzle sauce over peach crisp. Serve warm.

This was soo yummy, especially with the maple cream sauce. I used prettyy firm peaches as they bake better if they aren’t ripe.

I’m a huge PW fan, so it’s rare when I try something of hers I don’t like. I didn’t care much for this dessert- I really didn’t like the topping for the crisp, and I think it detracted from the rest of the dessert. Sorry Ree, but you’re still one of my favorites!

Really good, but I used some frozen fresh peaches from last summer,they were too juicy and it didn’t get crispy. We had no problem eating it though!

This is so-So-SO good! I didn’t have real maple syrup, but The Peanut Gallery didn’t know the difference or care! Scarfed this down in no-time flat! Excellent for a summer’s eve meal–when the peaches are fresh from the orchard.
