Here is a nice and easy dessert for you to make. Peaches are in season in the Southern Hemisphere so they are cheap. However, you could substitute the peaches for pears or apples if you want to make this now and are living in the Northern Hemisphere. Simply omit the thyme. Here is what you need for this:
4 cups diced peeled and diced peaches (about 10 medium)
1/3 cup brown sugar + ½ cup for topping
1 TBS fresh thyme leaves (do not use dry thyme)
1 TBS flour + ½ cup for topping
¾ cup rolled oats
¼ cup sunflower seeds
½ tsp. cinnamon
½ cup unsalted, melted butter – cooled down
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
In a bowl mix together the peaches, 1/3 cup brown sugar, thyme and 1 TBS flour. Mix peaches well. Place the peaches in an oven proof dish.
In the same bowl, mix together the ½ cup brown sugar, ½ cup flour, rolled oats, sunflower seeds and cinnamon. Add the melted butter and mix until uniform. Spread the topping on top of the peaches.
Place the crisp into the oven and bake for about 35 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream. Enjoy!
