Cast-Iron Peach Crisp Recipe
• 5 large peaches, pitted and sliced 1/4 inch thick
• 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
• 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
• 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
• 1/4 cup granulated sugar
• 1 cup rolled oats
• 1/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
• 5 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces and softened
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
2. In a medium bowl, gently toss the peaches with the cinnamon, nutmeg, 2 tablespoons of the flour, and granulated sugar.
3. To make the topping, combine the oats, brown sugar, butter, and the remaining 1 cup flour in a separate bowl. Mix with your hands until it just comes together.
4. Transfer the peaches to a 10-inch cast-iron skillet and scatter the topping over them. Place the skillet on a baking sheet to catch any overflow. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the topping is browned. Serve warm.
