Gluten Free Peach Crisp
Hey Readers! Peaches are in season in this area, and what better way to enjoy them than a simple yet scrumptious dessert: Peach Crisp!!!
It’s so easy, even someone who never baked a thing, can make a really pretty, delicious Peach Crisp. Give it a try. These measurements yielded two 8inch tart-shaped desserts. For more, just increase accordingly.
3 cups Yellow Peaches, peeled and sliced in crescents
4 tbl All- purpose Gluten Free Flour ( I used Bob’s Red Mill, but any brand is fine.)
½ cup Granulated Sugar
1 tbl Fresh Lemon Juice
½ cup Same Flour as above
1/3 cup Cornmeal ( I used some Polenta Cornmeal) Any cornmeal that’s G-F is fine
1/3 cup Granulated Sugar
1/3 cup Sweet Butter, COLD and cut into small pieces (if going non-dairy, use a substitute of choice or margarine)
Dash Nutmeg. Really, only a dash. (Don’t want to overwhelm the flavors)
Few Slivered Almond pieces for top.(Optional)
Easy, Easy! Set oven to 375 degrees. Grease your pan of choice.
Prepare filling and place into that pan.
In a larger bowl, add the Topping ingredients and to start, use a pastry tool or fork to combine into crumbs. Then use clean hands to make the topping stick in pieces like coarse crumbs. You can even squueze bits to make this happen.
Sprinkle over that filling, Lastly, put some almond slivers on top.
It may over-spill, so place on a baking sheet or at least a thick piece of aluminum foil.
Bake for between 50 and 60 minutes, depending on your oven. It’s done when the edges are golden and the almonds get slightly brown on tips.
Tadah!! Have a great Summer dessert! I love it warm, maybe even a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream on top? I’m enjoying “So-Delicious” Coconut Ice-Cream styles. Love them!
