When peaches start to appear at the farmer’s market in early summer, I have only one thing on my mind: peach crisp.

Crisps and cobblers of all kinds are so easy to make and ideal for summer. Fresh fruit baked with a crunchy crisp mixture and topped with cold ice cream is absolute heaven on a warm evening!

Today’s peach recipe came together easily, using fresh peaches from my local farmer’s market.

The peaches were so ripe, the skin peeled off in one piece. They were so juicy, I made sure to set aside a few for snacking!

The rest were destined to end up tossed with sugar and other delicious ingredients to become peach cobbler crisp.

Recipe Ingredients Needed

In addition to the vanilla extract, I tossed in some almond extract as well. I love almond extract, and I love the nutty flavor it gave this dessert.

All the ingredients I used to make the peach crisp:

{Ingredients at a glance; scroll down for recipe with amounts!}

  • Peaches
  • Baking mix (Bisquick)
  • Butter
  • Sliced almonds
  • Vanilla extract
  • Almond extract
  • Brown sugar
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
  • Salt

How to Make Peach Crisp

STEP 1. Make the peach filling

In a large bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of baking mix, 1/3 cup light brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, almond extract, nutmeg, vanilla extract and salt. Mix until combined. Fold in fresh peaches, gently.

Spread evenly in a shallow 2 quart baking dish. Set aside.

STEP 2. Make the crumb

In a large bowl, combine the remaining baking mix with 2/3 cup light brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and all the almonds. Mix gently.

Slice the butter into cubes and add to the bowl. Cut the butter in with a pastry cutter (or two knives) until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. If you’re struggling to get it to “crumb” try using your fingers! Sprinkle over peach mixture.

STEP 3. Bake!

Bake for 40 – 45 minutes until bubbly. Scoop into bowls or onto plates. Serve warm!

Of course, a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream on top of each serving is a necessity in my book! Especially when you wait a few minutes and allow the hot peach crisp to melt the ice cream partially.

The creaminess of the ice cream with the spices and fresh peaches… the contrast between the warm fruit and the cold ice cream . . . and the crunchy topping. . . OH MY GOSH!

There’s nothing about this peach crisp recipe I didn’t absolutely adore. My kids and husband agreed and it made the perfect finishing dish to our Saturday night meal.

Gluten Free Substitutions

It’s easy to make this a gluten free recipe, read the labels and choose a gluten free baking mix.

Check the packaging on your almonds and other ingredients to make sure they weren’t processed with ingredients containing gluten.

Whether or not you eat gluten free, it’s always helpful to have a few gluten free recipes up your sleeve!

With so many people avoiding gluten due to severe allergies or other reasons, I love knowing that I can still serve a delicious dessert everyone can enjoy!

No matter what your dietary restrictions, you can enjoy this warm spiced peach cobbler crisp.

With the juicy flavor of ripe summer peaches and the nutty taste of almonds, this is my new favorite peach cobbler recipe by far!

I hope there are still lots of ripe peaches left at the farmer’s market next week! We ate this whole peach crisp quickly and I’m already craving more.

Comments & Reviews

  1. Can I use butter in this recipe? I usually don’t buy margarine. I collect Peach recipes as I have peach trees in the back yard!

  2. Yum, looks delicious! Peaches are long gone from my supermarket though – I’m from Switzerland and while it might not be snowing yet it is certainly cold and rainy fall weather!

  3. Not a whole lot beats hot crisps and cobblers during the fall season.. this peach crisp is no exception! I want a HUGE hot bowl of it with a big ol’ mound of melty ice cream on top. That constitutes a dinner, right?

  4. I’m trying to stay warm in southern Wisconsin, and even though peaches should be the farthest thing from my mind, you have NO idea how badly I’m craving a big bowl of this gorgeous peach crisp. With a double-scoop of that awesome-lookin’ ice cream! 🙂

  5. Roll Call! I’m in Northern California, and it still feels like the tail end of summer here. Sunny, 90°+, but at least the mornings are getting nippy and feeling a little like fall! So… Ice cream and a peach crisp sounds perfect! 🙂 Pinned!

  6. Hi )
    I live in Florida and was raised in Maine. I love your recipes! You rock! I wish we were having some ice cream and peach crisp right now.

  7. Oh dude my nana would LOVE this dessert – she has Celiac and has been GF for over a year now and I wonder if she knows about Breyers carrying all those GF flavors. Sending this over to her asap! Thanks Aimee! 😀

  8. With all the pumpkin recipes around, you might forget that peaches are still in season in many parts of the US. This recipe looks delicious!

  9. I am in California (in the desert) where it’s still hot (100 degrees still). I am counting down the days until I can wear pants and maybe, just maybe a jacket. I tried the whole gluten free route because it’s healthier for you, but I never became a fan, but if your saying it good, then I gotta try it. Hope you are enjoying your weather until it snows. It does snow where your at doesn’t it? Pinned! 🙂

  10. Peach Crisp…what’s not to LOVE???
    Western New York-sunny, low 70″s, re4ally a spectacular fall day!! Gotta love it before the (shhh!!!) snow flies!!

  11. I adore crisps! There’s something magical about lightly spiced fruit, crumbly toppings, and ice cold ice cream! YUM!

  12. I’m in VA and it’s been raining ever since yesterday with temps in the 60’s. I love peach crisps paired with vanilla ice cream. This will certainly boost my gloomy mood!

  13. As far as the weather goes, I cannot get over how summery it is here in the Chicago area. It is so unusual for late Sept. early Oct. ( not that I’m complaining!) but it does put me in the mood for this yummy peach crisp! I’m not much of a g free baker myself, but this looks so good I doubt I’d even miss the gluten! 🙂

  14. I’m in Minneapolis-St Paul and today is going to be sunny and 67. I’ll take it! And I’ll take some of this yummy peach crisp too! Pinned. 🙂

  15. I will miss peaches this winter for sure! One of my favorite summer fruits. This peach crisp looks fabulous! Love the ice cream!

  16. This looks delicious! If gluten-free baking mix weirds you out, this recipe would work really well with oat flour (labeled gluten-free) too, which is really nice in a crisp. Either way, love the almond extract!
    And by the way, sunny and 80 degrees in MD. But I’m from Indiana, so I am in your weather mindset!

  17. I just used that ice cream in a pie recipe I did last week! Love the looks of your peach crisp! Mmm, sounds perfect. Pinned!
