Before peach season draws to an end, Teresa Henson recommends that people try making peach crisp.
"It is a perfect dessert, it is easy to prepare and it's absolutely scrumptious," said Henson, who is an Extension specialist-program outreach coordinator for the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff.
This recipe makes 6 servings.
4 peaches (4 cups sliced)
2 tablespoons margarine
3/4 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Slice the peaches.
Spread the peach slices on the bottom of the baking pan.
Melt the margarine in a saucepan.
In a small bowl, mix everything but the peaches. Stir until the mix is well blended.
Sprinkle the oat mix on top of the peaches.
Bake for 20 minutes.
Note: Serve the peach crisp either hot or cold. To remove the peach fuzz, you can rub the washed peach gently with a paper towel.
