Recipe: Baked Peaches

If you saw my Peaches and Cream Breakfast Popsicle post last week, you know that I had an abundance of peaches around the house that I was trying to use up. In an attempt to spice up my normal peach crisp, I made you Baked Peaches with a oat and cinnamon topping! Basically just like peach crisp without the slices of the peaches, these are perfect for a quick dessert with ice cream or whipped cream, or reheated as breakfast the next morning. I'm all about the desserts that double as breakfast.

Baked Peaches

Makes 8 peach halves

4 peaches
2 tablespoons + 3 tablespoons of cold butter
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup brown sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cut each peach in half and remove the pits. In an oven-proof dish (like an 8x8inch baking dish) place the peach halves, skin side down. Cut the two tablespoons of cold butter into 8 pieces and place a piece of the butter on each peach. Sprinkle sugar across the tops.

In a medium bowl, add oats, flour, cinnamon, salt, and brown sugar. Melt butter in the microwave, and mix into the mixture with a fork until combined and crumbly. Add topping to the peaches, concentrating on the tops of each peach and lightly pressing the topping into each peach. Bake for 20-30 minutes until the topping is golden. Serve warm with ice cream and caramel sauce, or whipped cream.
