What’s the Difference between Peach Cobbler and Peach Crisp?

The difference between peach cobbler and peach crisp is the topping that is used. When making a peach cobbler it is made with a biscuit topping and also the bottom.

The perfect Peach Crisp is made with a oats and streusel topping.

Ingredients

Ingredients needed - peaches, lemon juice, sugar, flour, vanilla, salt, cinnamon, brown sugar, oats, nutmeg, butter
  • Peaches. Peeled and cut into even slices.
  • Lemon Juice. We used fresh lemon juice.
  • Sugar. This amount will vary depending on the sweetness of peaches.
  • All-Purpose. Spoon the flour into the measuring cup. Don’t scoop the flour or you run the risk of packing too much in the cup.

Topping

  • Light Brown Sugar. You can make Homemade Brown Sugar Recipe.
  • Rolled Oats. Make sure to use quick cooking oats and not old fashioned.
  • Unsalted butter. Softened plus more for coating pan.

Topping Ideas

Pro Tips

  • Ripe Peaches – We like to pick peaches that were more ripe so they are soft and perfect in this crisp. Make sure to peel the skin and slice before adding to the baking pan.
  • Mixing Ingredients – Make sure to cover the peaches with the sugar and lemon juice. This keeps the peaches from turning brown.
  • Draining Juice – Prior to adding the peaches to the baking dish, we recommend draining the juice that the peaches are in.
  • Frozen Peaches – You can use frozen peaches in this recipe. Simply let the peaches thaw in place in the bowl. Continue with the lemon and sugar mixture. Make sure to drain the peach juice.
  • Gluten FreeYou can make this gluten free by choosing the oat topping ingredients that have no gluten in it.
  • Add in other fruit – To add color and texture, mix in some blueberries or blackberries. We love the additional flavor and it is easy to add in.
  • Freeze Leftovers – If you have leftover peach crisp, you can place the cooled peach crisp in a freezer container. When ready to serve, let thaw overnight in the fridge and place back in the oven to reheat.

FAQs

Can you Use Canned Peaches in a Crisp?

Yes, you can use canned peaches in this recipe. If you use canned peaches, there is no need for peeling peaches. You can skip to the steps on preparing the peach crumble if not using fresh peaches.

How to Store Leftovers?

Store leftovers in the refrigerator in an air tight container. It will only last a few days as the oat topping will start to get soft.

Can I Make Peach Cobbler Crisp ahead of time?

Yes, you can prepare the peaches by slicing and peeling them and mixing with the granulated sugar. Keep the peach and crumble in a separate bowl and store separately in the fridge.

Make the crisp within a day for best results.

    We somehow ended up with a whole lot of peaches this past fall and so I was thrilled to come across this recipe. As always happens with recipes from here, my family was not disappointed!
