Making Tuesday Tasty-Peach Crisp

Peaches are coming into season and I love peach pie, peach crisps, and peach cobblers. Here is one take on a peach crisp. Please tweak to your liking though because some people like more spice than others, etc. Enjoy


For Filling:
8 cups fresh sliced peaches
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons flour


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
3/4 cup chilled unsalted butter, cut into 1/2-inch pieces


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine all of the filling ingredients in a large bowl and gently mix.

Pour the filling ingredients into a 9 by13-inch baking pan and set aside while making the topping.

In a bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles large peas. Distribute the topping evenly over the peaches in the baking pan. Bake for 40 minutes.
