sour cream peach crisp
adapted from seven spoons
1 1/2 pounds ripe peaches, chopped
8 ounces sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons honey
1/3 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/3 cup brown sugar
1-2 teaspoons cinnamon
pinch of ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons cold butter, cut into cubes
1. preheat oven to 400 degrees. in a bowl or food processor combine topping ingredients. cut the butter into the mixture until combined. set aside.
2. in a bowl, stir vanilla and honey into sour cream.
3. take a few scant handfuls of the oat mixture and sprinkle it in the bottom of a 9 inch pie plate. spoon sour cream over this, and arrange peaches on top of the cream. sprinkle remaining topping over the fruit.
4. bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the cream is set, peaches are tender, and topping is golden.
  • i made a mini version (obviously). perfect for a party of two.
  • i ground up oats into a flour instead of all-purpose flour.
  • and used pure maple syrup instead of brown sugar.
  • the original recipe calls for more flour and sugar.. just fyi. mine may not be a luxury crisp.
  • beware.. make sure your peaches are not bitter!

Hello, I'm Summer. A people-loving introvert whose hope and life is in Jesus. His promises are my passion and my ministry is homelife. This blog is a place for me to write about everyday things. Especially food. My favorite thing to do is sit around a table, lingering over a long meal with good conversation. I live with my husband and our 2 littles. We like blizzards, thrifting, grammar, guacamole, cheerful hearts, nice manners, good movies, and making simple, real, nutrient-dense food.
