What a Crock: Peach Crisp
There are a million peach cobbler-esque slow cooker recipes out there. I figured it was time to highlight one. But, how to choose from such a plethora of delightful recipes? I always seem to find a way.
I chose this one based on one ingredient -- the quick oats. I had yet to find that ingredient used in similar recipes, and figured it might bring a little healthier element to this dessert. Everything else -- the canned peaches, brown sugar, butter, flour, and cinnamon -- are all fairly standard.
Figure on about ten minutes of prep work. Just drain your peaches and set aside. Mix together the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, butter, and oats to form a crumble. Dump the peaches in the crock pot, along with half the crumble mixture -- give a good stir. Top with the remaining portion. Set on Low for 3-4 hours.
Good, but not great I've had better, but that's not to say this was bad. It needed to be sweeter. I enjoyed the oats and thought they helped form a nice crust, but maybe adding some more brown sugar to the equation would help the dessert. This is a nice, quick dessert to make on the weekend when maybe a few friends are coming over.
No surprise here, serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. This turns average cobbler into spectacular cobbler.Sprinkle with cinnamon.
