A few weeks ago I shared the recipe for this easy Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp which is perfect for late spring and early summer when rhubarb is in season. But when summer really arrives and you can get perfectly ripe and juicy peaches at the farmers market it’s time for this Fresh Peach Crisp!
This peach crisp is super easy to make from scratch! No need to peel the peaches if you like a bit of texture in your crisp like I do. The brown sugar oatmeal streusel is so crispy and tasty but super easy to whip up. A perfect easy summer dessert that everyone in my family loves!
Tips and tricks for making this Peach Crisp Recipe
- The secret to a great peach crisp is to use perfectly ripe and juicy peaches. If you can’t get your hands on ripe peaches you can use canned peaches for this recipes. Drain them before adding them!
- I don’t peel the peaches but you can definitely do that if you don’t like it.
- Don’t skip the old-fashioned oats! They make the topping crispy and give you a nice crunch.
- If you use a shallow baking dish place it on top of a foil-lined baking sheet to catch any spills. This makes cleaning up easier! This recipe works best in a 9-inch round or square or similar sized baking dish.
- Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream would pair perfectly with this crisp. The warm juicy fruit, crunchy streusel, and cold ice cream are the perfect combo. So EASY and DELICIOUS!

Tools used in the making of this Peach Crisp Recipe
Vanilla Extract: This is my favorite vanilla extract. I also love their vanilla sugar for recipes where I don’t want to add more liquid.
Almond Extract: I like to add Almond Extract to my peach crisp because the flavors go so well together.
Oven-Proof Skillet: I’m all about this cast iron skillet. It has the perfect size to use it as a baking dish for crisps, skillet cookies, or vegetable side dishes and it also looks great as a serving dish.
Chef’s Knife: I love this knife. My husband bought it for my birthday a few years ago and it’s still sharp and cuts everything. This knife has a great size and will make slicing, dicing, and chopping so easy and effortless.

Peach Crisp Recipe with Fresh Peaches
For the Filling:
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar, (50g)
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 5-6 medium peaches, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 tsp pure almond extract
For the Topping:
- 1 cup old-fashioned oats, (90g)
- 1/2 cup brown sugar packed, (110g)
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened, (115g)
- 1/3 cup all-purpose flour, (40g)
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and grease a 9-inch square or similar sized baking dish.
- In a large bowl, combine cornstarch and sugars. Add peach slices, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and almond extract. Toss to coat.
- Transfer the mixture to the baking dish.
- In a medium bowl, combine the old-fashioned oats, brown sugar, butter, flour, cinnamon, and salt.
- Mix the ingredients together until large cookie dough like crumbs form. Drop small pieces of the topping evenly over the filling until you used all of the topping.
- Bake at 350°F for 45 minutes, until the fruit filling is bubbling and the topping is nicely browned. Let the crisp rest for about 10 minutes before serving. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream if desired.
