Okay, so it's still a little early for peaches, but peach season is just around the corner, and when it comes, one of my favorite things to make with peaches, especially early in the season, is a tasty peach crisp.

This version comes together quickly and delivers a delicious peach crisp that will have your eaters asking for seconds in no time. Makes about six portions, so scale accordingly.

  • 6 fresh peaches, peeled, pitted and sliced
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup butter

Directions:
Heat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Place the peaches in the bottom of a greased, 8-inch square baking dish.

Sprinkle peaches with vanilla and almond extracts.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt.

Use a pastry cutter to cut the butter into the flour mixture until the mixture forms pea-sized crumbs.

Sprinkle the flour mixture in an even layer over the top of the peaches, and bake in the preheated oven for about 45 minutes, until the peaches are bubbling and the topping is browned.

Note: Some gluten-free flours do not brown as well as regular flour, so be careful to avoid overcooking.

Serve with vanilla ice cream, frozen yogurt, or regular plain yogurt, as desired.
