Out of the Heat and Into the .......Oven??

Yesterday was just too hot and humid to do much of anything outside. After the necessary farm chores were complete, I took the opportunity to run to our little local town to visit the bank, post office, glass repair shop, feed store and farm market. It was at our adorable little farm market that I found the yummiest, freshest local peaches.

All the way home, I thought about what I could make with those juicy, ripe peaches.
How about Peach Praline Crisp? Yummmmmm....with ice cream on the top, too!
So, here is what I came up with.....
First I peeled the skin off five peaches (those peels will make a yummy treat for my chickens) and sliced them into a 9 X 9 baking dish. I topped the peaches with 1/2 cup chopped pecans.
Then, to the pantry to look for something to use for the "crisp"...
I mixed 3/4 cup organic, white, whole wheat flour, 3/4 cup rolled oats, 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1 tsp cinnamon. With a pastry cutter I mixed 1 stick of butter into the flour mixture until it became crumbly.

Poured the crumbs on top of the peaches.....And, into the oven at 375 for 30 - 40 minutes....removing it when the peaches are bubbly and the topping is golden brown.Mmmmm, Mmmmmmm, my mouth is watering just thinking about it! Don't you just love the fresh fruit of summer?
