A crisp is a simple country-style dessert where fruit is topped with a mix of flour, brown sugar, and butter and baked. We used individual halved peaches because it's even easier to cover them with the topping, which includes almonds and oats for crunch.
Ingredients

peach(es)

24 oz, 4 (6-ounce) firm-ripe, halved and pitted

almonds

¼ cup(s), sliced, whole

packed light brown sugar

¼ cup(s)

table salt

tsp

unsalted butter

2 Tbsp, cut into pieces

old-fashioned rolled oats

cup(s)

table salt

tsp

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Place peaches, cut-side up, in small shallow baking dish that has been sprayed with nonstick spray. Combine almonds, brown sugar, and salt in food processor and pulse until almonds are coarsely chopped. Add butter and pulse until mixture is evenly moistened and forms small clumps; add oats and pulse just until mixed. Spoon about 3 tablespoons almond mixture into center of each peach, pressing lightly to cover peaches.
  3. Bake until topping is golden brown and crisp and peaches are tender when pierced with fork but still hold their shape, about 40 minutes. Transfer peaches to wire rack and let cool about 10 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
  4. Per serving:1/2 stuffed peach
