Peach Crisp

I think everyone who cooks has staple recipes for when unexpected guests come by or when someone they love is not feeling up to par or just when they want to brighten someone's day.  This is one of mine.  I think most people who have ever had my cooking have tasted it.  (Maybe it's time to branch out to new staples...)  I actually love this stuff so much, though, that I make batches just to jar up and throw into the fridge so it's ready whenever I want just a single serving snack.  I hope you try it and love it as much as I do because for me, it really warms me to my core.

What you'll need:
3/4 cup of Bisquick
1/2 cup of oatmeal
1/2 cup of light brown sugar (packed!)
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
A dash of salt
3 tbsp of softened butter

2 cans of drained sliced peaches

First, you'll mix together everything except the butter and peaches.  I love this because it requires no mixers or even whisks.  Just a spoon and measuring cups.

It's going to look like this.

Measure out your butter, add it, and with a fork, cut it into the dry ingredients.  (Basically, mash it over and over...this will take just a few minutes)

This is how it should look once all the butter has been cut in.  It's still going to seem crumby, but that's okay.  It should clump together of you try to squish it.

Drain your peaches and add the to the bottom of an 8x8 dish that has been greased.  Sprinkle the crisp mixture on top of your peaches until all the peaches are covered.  Bake at 375 for half an hour or so.  The top is going to basically look the same (maybe a bit browner) but the peaches will be bubbly and warm and your kitchen will smell of cinnamon.  Serve with ice cream or on its own right of the oven!
