When August rolls around and the peaches are ripe in the orchards of my home state, Washington, cobblers and crisps aren’t far from my mind.

In fact, it wouldn’t be summer without a few crisps bubbling in the oven. That aroma! You know it’s true. It makes the whole house smell like August!

And that moment when it comes out of the oven, bubbling and warm and fragrant? It’s so heavenly. Especially when that scoop of vanilla ice cream melts down into the orchard fresh peaches. Oh my… you’ll just have to try it and see for yourself!

How to Make Skillet Peach Crisp 

If you have fresh peaches on hand, or are craving an easy peach dessert, you’ll love this one. Step by step instructions are in the recipe card at the bottom of the post, but here’s what to expect:

  1. Oil or butter your skillet and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a bowl or the skillet, combine sliced peaches, brown sugar, cornstarch, and vanilla. Toss together and arrange in the skillet.
  3. Combine the ingredients for the topping: oats, flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Add the softened butter and mix, even with your hands, until it’s crumbly.
  4. Scatter the streusel over the peaches evenly. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the crisp is bubbling around the edges and the peaches are fork tender.

Skillet Peach Crisp Questions:

Can you use canned peaches?

Both fresh, canned, and even thawed frozen sliced peaches can be used in this peach crisp recipe. But if you can, fresh peaches are bursting with flavor during peak season and are incredibly delicious.

How do you store peach crisp?

Leftovers can be refrigerated for up to a week when stored in an airtight container. Let the crisp come to room temperature before transferring it to a container for best results.

Can you freeze peach crisp?

Absolutely! When I’m planning to freeze the whole crisp, I generally bake it in an 8 or 9-inch square pan instead of a skillet. Store in a sealed container in the freezer for up to 2 months. To reheat, bake in a 350-degree oven for 15 minutes, or until warm.

How many fresh peaches will I need?

As peach sizes vary, you will need about 4 to 5 peaches to yield 4 cups of sliced peaches. But I always give myself wiggle room and have 6 available in a pinch.
