More peaches....

Once again, in the "cool of the morning," I have baked some more with those peaches The Husband brought in from a local farm. 

Peach Crisp

"Are you SURE this is all you want?" I asked The Husband.

This recipe for Peach Crisp comes from a newspaper clipping sometime ago on the Mini Page.  It is a Rookie Cookie's recipe.:-)

4 cups fresh or canned peaches, sliced
3/4 cup brown sugar
4 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup rolled oats, uncooked
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup butter, softened

- Place peaches evenly on bottom of a greased 8-by-8-inch baking pan.
- In a medium bowl, combine remaining ingredients except butter.  Mix well.
- Add butter.  Mix until crumbly.
- Cover peaches evenly with crumbly mixture.
- Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for 30 minutes.  Serves 6.

Well, with The Husband's choice of serving size, this will for sure serve more than 6!:-)

The baking dish is a Longaberger dish of several years ago, discontinued.  The dessert dish is also by Longaberger, and they are still available.

I now know that the record-setting temperature of yesterday broke a record that was set in 1937 for that date - before my lifetime!  We will probably break another record today.  Outside our window, the thermometer already reads 106 degrees!  The "official" reading, though occurs elsewhere, and it may be a bit different.  Wherever you are, if the heat is a factor for you, be sure to take care!

Oh, we have brought in our first ripe tomato of the season!  Of course, we have been picking grape tomatoes for awhile, but they are always first to ripen - for us, anyway.  It made me want to have a BLT for lunch, but I proceeded with my planned salad.:-)  Tomorrow may be a better day for that BLT.  I like to have a slice of avocado to add to it.:-)  That means a stop at the store, something I may be doing in the morning.

Thank you for following along with me.  I really appreciate your comments.

Next post - Are there still more peaches?


  1. Hmmmm....left a comment, then message said service unavailable. Let's see what happens with this one... Are you SURE The Husband didn't have seconds this morning? :-) I'm sure that tomato will be wonderful, however you choose to use it. I'll be making my trip to the store in a few minutes, thankful for the car's a/c and trying to get home quickly! Looking forward to your next post, always.

  2. This sounds so yummy! I hope while we're out this afternoon that I can find some peaches! I hope you have a blessed weekend,

  3. Looks yummy. Love peach desserts. Next trip to the market I will definitely buy some peaches. xo

  4. I love anything made with fresh peaches and your recipe sounds just the thing. Our Illinois peaches are in the stores now and I need to get some more.

  5. Nellie, I love cobblers made of peaches. Yum. Your crisp looks very good. I would want more than what your husband did :):) Smiles, Susie

  6. that sounds so good and the fresh tomato and tomorrow's sandwich sounds pretty good too!!! YUM!

  7. nellie, stopped so much for stopping by my blog.. love your recipes and dishes kind of a here in mn also, a little to hot to get much done outside. enjoy your evening and stay cool.

  8. I have a similar recipe that we call Peach Crumble.
    It is hot here, too, but not as hot as some have it. Hope you have a good salad and evening- xo Diana

  9. It looks wonderful. I have been starving for BLT sandwiches, but I use avocado too. I have had some ripe tomatoes but I have blossom rot. It makes me sick. We put some calcium down so the ones out there are looking better but then it cooled off.
    I hope it cools off for you soon.

  10. great looking cobbler. it was over 100 here yesterday! i hate this weather!

  11. Mmmmmmmmmm... A much larger serving for me, please!!!!!!!! -grin-

    IF I could still eat such.

    But guess I could make it, using G/F flour. :-)

  12. Oh that peach cobbler looks scrumptious! and I think I'd have to have a bigger piece than Husband had I love those dishes!! Reminded me that I have one of their baskets downstairs with a liner that fits the 4th of July, with all it's red, white and blue! I must bring it up and use it this week!


  13. I can't imagine how hot you must be there. I hope you can keep cool. Wise doing your chores in the early morning. The peaches and your recipes sound delicious.

  14. Stay cool. I'm catching up after being unplugged on the beach for a week. Missed your recipes.

  15. you know, we have the same temps as you as we are just a few miles apart. :-)))

    Tell Shadow that Katie's human brother brought her 5 new brown paper bags a week ago.

  16. Looks scrumptious, you certainly have put a dent in all of those peaches :)
    Must give the recipe a try, and serve with ice cream..
    Hope you are staying cool, we have finally got rain, from a late afternoon thunderstorm !
    Thank you for your kind comments.

  17. This looks delicious! I might have to try it when the weather is cooler, it's just too hot for the oven.

  18. The peach dessert looks, well, peachy and yummy, Nellie. Thanks for stopping by and commenting, too! Happy FOURTH! Susan
