Just about everybody loves a good apple crisp recipe. So, why not one for peach crisp?

Peach Crisp

4 pounds (10 to 12) peaches

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2/3 cup sugar

1/3 cup flour

½ teaspoon ground ginger

TOPPING:

1½ cups flour

½ teaspoon salt

1½ sticks butter, softened to room temperature and cut into bits

1 cup brown sugar

1½ cup oats

1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Coat a 13-by-9-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

Cut fruit in half; remove the pits and cut each half into 4 wedges. Toss with the vanilla, sugar, flour and ginger. Transfer to prepared baking dish.

In a clean bowl, combine the topping ingredients, working the mixture with your fingertips until it is in coarse crumbs. Sprinkle evenly over the filling.

Bake until the filling bubbles up on the edges and the fruit is very soft, 40 to 45 minutes.

Yield: Serves 12.
