Peach Crisp

Well...I've had enough time off...I started feeling better with the vitamins, etc. that my new doc put me on and then I got sick with a sinus infection or something and I've been trying to get over that...then it was time to do a little gardening and get outside...

But now it's time for some crock pot meals to keep the kitchen from getting too hot this summer...and what better way to start than with a Peach Crisp...yummy!!!

Peach Crisp

6 peaches, peeled and sliced (must use fresh)
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon cinnamon (split)
1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping
1 cup rolled oats
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter, melted
1 cup granola
1/2 cup crushed toffee

Spray crock pot with cooking spray. Mix peaches, lemon juice and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in crock pot. Drizzle with caramel topping.

In a mixing bowl, mix oatmeal, brown sugar, flour, salt and the other 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Add the melted butter and stir until crumbly. Stir in granola and toffee. Sprinkle this mixture over the peaches. Cover and cook on LOW 4-5 hour.

When done, spoon into bowls and serve with ice cream or cool whip. Serves 6

Enjoy and Happy Slow Cooking! Hugs...
