So here I am again for another Throw Back Thursday post! Where did this past week go! I don't know about you, but I've been super busy - my niece got married, I've been battling weeds in my garden and yard, working on Etsy shop orders, working on wedding projects, and planning a bridal shower! All fun things (well, maybe not the weed part), but really keeping me on my toes! Since it's peach season, I decided to bring back this easy mason jar peach crisp recipe! A perfect quick and easy summertime dessert!
8 wide mouth pint size Ball jars
10 fresh peaches
1 1/2 cup flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 cup oatmeal
2/3 cup butter
I used the Ball Elite Platinum wide mouth jars. I found them at Kmart. They come in a set of four for about $5.50. I mostly like these because they have the wide mouth and are perfect for an individual serving.
Peal the peaches and cut into bite sized pieces. Divide the peaches equally among the 8 pint sized jars.
Next you want to make the crunch topping. You can mix all of the topping ingredients using your food processor or by hand using a fork to work the butter through the dry ingredients.
Again, divide the topping equally among the 8 jars. The topping will go almost to the very top of the jar. Sprinkle with a little ground cinnamon. Put your filled jars on a rimmed cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes (until the topping starts to brown).
As the peaches bake, the volume decreases and that leaves room on top for your vanilla ice cream! These individual peach crisps were sooo good - especially served warm with the ice cream!
I have to say, I think this baking trend is here to stay - the jars are both cute and practical because they are reusable. And, they are a perfect individual portion size! I hope you will give it a try! If you are looking for another great peach recipe - here's one for Homemade Peach Ice Cream!
