I love fresh juicy peaches in the Summer… right off the tree, and ready to eat just the way they are (with juice running down your arms), OR to be transformed into other delicious dishes… like this Old-Fashioned Peach Crisp, for example!

Old fashioned peach crisps have rolled oats in the crumbly topping. This topping makes them a bit different from a cobbler, which typically have a biscuit-type topping. The oats crisp up as the dish bakes, making a nice streusel topping for that delicious fresh fruit!

We LOVE Fresh Peaches!

I pick peaches every summer at a local U-Pick farm about 15 minutes from our home. Once I get home with my 25-30 pounds of fresh peaches, the race against the clock begins! I have a few days to do LOTS of things with these beauties.

These activities include canning them for long term storage, making peach jampeach pies, peach ice cream, and this Old-Fashioned Peach Crisp! It often seems like a PEACH FACTORY in our kitchen! It’s a wonder I don’t turn into a peach!

It’s really easy to make individual sized peach crisps for a scrumptious, classic dessert. Here’s how I make Old-Fashioned Peach Crisp!

How To Make Old Fashioned Peach Crisp

Please note that I made 6 individual sized servings, but the recipe works just as well if you make it in a large 13×9 baking dish, too (with a bit longer cooking time)! First, peel and thinly slice all those beautiful fresh, juicy peaches. Try hard not to eat them all… this is important!

Fresh peaches peeled and sliced to make a crisp!

Light coat the bottom of baking dish (or dishes) with non-stick spray. Evenly divide the fresh sliced peaches between serving dishes (if making individual sized).

Make The Streusel Topping

In a separate bowl, mix dry ingredients, then cut in COLD butter, using a pastry blender, until mixture is about the size of peas.

Butter is cut into streusel topping for old-fashioned crisp.

Spoon the crumb topping over each dish to cover (or over the entire surface if using a single baking dish).

Streuesel topping is placed on top of peaches.

Bake The Old-Fashioned Peach Crisp

Place the old fashioned peach crisp dish(es) into 375 degree preheated oven and bake for 35-40 minutes (slightly longer time if making a single 13×9 dish). When done, the crumb topping will be browned and edges will be bubbly (from all those delicious peach juices).

TIP: I find it helpful to place a large sheet of aluminum foil on the rack below the dishes before cooking, to catch any juices that try to escape (less mess if juice bubbles out and over the edge of individual dishes).

Old-Fashioned peach crisps are ready for the oven!

When done, remove the old fashioned peach crisp dish(es) to a wire rack and let cool slightly before serving.

See that gorgeous peach goodness on the bottom of the dish? Oh yum. The streusel forms a nice crust on the peach crisp, and the butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar flavor the fruit wonderfully!

Ready To Serve

All that’s left to do to make these ABSOLUTELY PERFECT is to serve them warm, with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream, and enjoy this absolutely PERFECT taste of SUMMER!

Hope you will consider making this delicious old-fashioned peach crisp while peaches are in season! You just can’t beat the classic flavor! Grab a spoon, put on some stretchy pants, plop down on the couch,  and enjoy this treat. You can start your diet tomorrow… ha ha! Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by.

Strawberry Cobbler

Delicious strawberry cobbler (in individual servings), featuring fresh strawberries and a buttery crumb topping, will be a family dessert favorite!Delicious strawberry cobbler (in individual servings), featuring fresh strawberries and a buttery crumb topping, will be a family dessert favorite!
My husband surprised me with a flat of fresh picked Hood strawberries this past weekend, locally grown in the Pacific Northwest. Absolutely the best strawberry there is! These little gems are perfect for making Strawberry Cobbler, if you ask me!

I was in the middle of several HUGE projects (pressure washing deck and patio, painting deck, refinishing a garden bench/staining it), etc. My brain went into overtime, because I had to figure out what to do with all those strawberries, before they went bad.

Because I was determined, I finished my projects, and into the kitchen I went. The first thing I made was homemade strawberry ice cream (my hubby’s request), then some strawberry jam, and this absolutely delicious STRAWBERRY COBBLER!

I found the recipe on Pinterest (thank you Joan, at “Chocolate Chocolate And More”), and it sounded really good. I’ve made many cobblers before, but never a STRAWBERRY cobbler. Yum. The recipe is VERY easy, and before I knew it, we had 4 ramekins of delicious cobbler, bursting with the flavor of fresh strawberries! Here’s how to make this great dessert!

How To Make Individual Sized Strawberry Cobbler In Ramekins

Place quartered strawberries and sugar into a saucepan. (Note: I mashed them just a bit with a potato masher – not too much… just enough to get the strawberry juice flowing-this step is optional).

Let the strawberries and sugar hang out together for about 20 minutes. Because I mashed the ripe strawberries way too much, there was a lot of juice. Try NOT to mash them too much, for more intact strawberries.

Cooking mashed strawberries in saucepan for strawberry cobbler filling.
Heat the strawberry mixture for about 5 minutes on medium heat. While they are heating, mix up a slurry of cornstarch and cold water, and then add it to the heated strawberry mixture. This will act as the thickening agent for the fruit in the strawberry cobbler.

Filling the Ramekins

Stir the strawberry mixture together and continue to cook, stirring often, until the strawberries come to a boil. Remove the pan from the heat, then evenly divide the strawberry mixture into 4 ramekins. Place the filled ramekins on a foil-lined baking sheet. TIP: The aluminum foil will catch any drips if the cobbler bubbles over the top, and will make your cleanup a LOT easier!

Although this picture below doesn’t quite capture it, there really are a LOT of strawberry chunks in there!

Make The Crumb Topping For Strawberry Cobbler

Place the crumb topping ingredients in a small bowl. Mix up the ingredients with a pastry blender or two forks, and blend until the crumbs are about the size of peas.

Evenly distribute the crumb topping over the tops of the strawberry cobbler in all 4 ramekins.

Time To Bake

Once all the ramekins all have crumb topping, put the foil-lined baking sheet with the ramekins into a preheated 350° F. oven, and bake for 25 minutes. When done, carefully remove the strawberry cobbler from the oven. Transfer the ramekins to a wire rack to finish cooling. The cobblers will look something like the photo below, and will smell GOOD!

Let the strawberry cobbler cool down for a few minutes, and then add a small scoop of homemade or store bought vanilla ice cream to each dessert. You can also garnish each cobbler with a sprig of mint, for presentation. This is optional, but adds color and fancies up the dessert a bit!

The only thing left to do at this point is to grab a spoon, and take a big ol’ bite of this delicious strawberry cobbler. It’s soooo good!

Delicious strawberry cobbler (in individual servings), featuring fresh strawberries and a buttery crumb topping, will be a family dessert favorite!

Category: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Keyword: strawberry cobbler
Servings: 4 servings
Calories Per Serving: 383 kcal
Author: JB @ The Grateful Girl Cooks!
Ingredients
  • 4-5 cups strawberries (fresh), cut into quarters
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 4 teaspoons cold water
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (light or dark)
  • 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup butter , softened
  • Vanilla Ice Cream (for topping cobbler- optional, but recommended!)
  • Mint sprigs (for garnish-optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Clean, de-stem and hull strawberries. Slice into quarters. Place strawberries and granulated sugar in a medium sized saucepan. Stir to combine, then let sit for about 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, place pan on stove and heat strawberries on medium heat for 5 minutes.

  3. While strawberries are heating, combine cornstarch and cold water in a small bowl. Whisk well to fully combine (and dissolve the cornstarch...no lumps!) Pour cornstarch mixture into the strawberries. Stir. Continue heating (and stirring) the strawberries until mixture begins to boil. Remove pan from the heat. Divide strawberry mixture into 4 ramekins. Set aside.

  4. To make the crumb topping, place brown sugar, oats, flour and butter in s small bowl. Cut ingredients together with a pastry blender (or two forks), until it becomes small crumbles. Evenly distribute crumb topping over the top of all 4 strawberry-filled ramekins (cover the tops completely). Put ramekins on a baking sheet that is covered with parchment paper, a silicone mat, or aluminum foil. This helps catch any drips that may or may not occur (depending on how full the ramekins are).

  5. Bake cobbler at 350 degrees for approximately 25 minutes. When done, topping should be golden brown, and bubbly around the edges. Remove from oven. Let cobbler cool 5-10 minutes before serving. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream, garnish with a sprig of mint, dig in... and ENJOY!!!

Recipe Notes

You do not need to lightly mash the strawberries as I did (to extract more juice). Just omit that step and add the quartered strawberries to the saucepan with the granulated sugar. It's all good.
