because there are peaches left over

Nothing says FALL like the fragrance of a crisp!
and with all the canned peaches~ I had some fresh ones left over (actually- I set them aside for this one purpose... sneaky, I know.)

Fruit Crisp.
The Better Homes and Garden recipe.... because when its this old school... you go to the "basics" book.
If you dont have this book on your cookbook shelf... its is a must have.  It covers everything from appetizers, quick breads, meats, canning, and even mixed drinks!  I was lucky enough to have one gifted to me from my mother in law as a wedding gift (ump~teen years ago).... and it is used.... a lot!
granted I have to make some GFCF adaptions... but still just as delish!

FRUIT CRISP ( I use this recipe so often that the book opens right to the page.... no need for a bookmark)
5 cups of Fruit (sliced and peeled)
2-4 tbsp. sugar
1/2 cup oats (we use BOB's RED MILL GF oats)
1/2 cup Brown sugar
1/4 cup flour (I use my own GF flour, but any GF flour will work)
1/4  tsp. ground cinnamon, nutmeg, or ginger (or a dash of all three... hint hint!)
1/4 cup butter ( we use coconut oil)
1/2 cup chopped nuts ( we use almonds!)

for Fruit... place in the bottom of a round dish (8 inch) and sprinkle sugar over top ( see hint below).
for topping... in a mixing bowl combine other ingredients until it resembles a coarse crumble.
Sprinkle over the top.
Bake at 375 for 30 minutes.

** hint: if it is a "wet" fruit like peaches, berries or cherries.... add 1 tbsp. corn starch to thicken.**

sit back.  and enjoy the smells that will fill your kitchen....
oh my!
