Peach Fest and a Yummy Recipe

Over the weekend we were able to have lots of great fun at the annual Peach Festival in Cobden Illinois. Never heard of Cobden? Here in southern Illinois it is the location of a few orchards that supply the area with delicious goodies of peaches and apples both. Yummy desserts are among my favorite things to make from the fruits that are available. Perhaps you would like to try your hand at a delicious recipe like peach crisp.
4 to 6 large peaches
sprinkle of sugar
For the topping:
½ cup flour
½ cup rolled oats
½ cup brown sugar
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
½ cup (1 stick) butter

spread peaches in baking dish and sprinkle with sugar

Mix dry ingredients together.  

Using a pastry blender, blend in the cold butter until mixture is uniformly crumby.  If you don’t have a pastry blender, just use a fork. 

Evenly sprinkle the crumb mixture over the top of the peaches.  Some crumble recipes stipulate patting the mixture down on top of the peaches.  I chose not to, and it was fine.  Bake at 350° for 45 minutes.

Don’t try to serve like a piece of cake.  Allow the peaches to jumble together with the crumble.  It is so good!
