Peach Crisp....The Amish Way

This is a favorite of our family. We go way back with the Amish and the Pennsylvania Dutch...this is a and yummy recipe that can be made in small batches...or huge batches. Easy for kids and adults...and quick enough to make large amounts for Church groups or company picnics or family outings. to make it larger or smaller...just add to the basic recipe

Peach Crisp

1 stick butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup flower
1 large can of peaches or 2-3 small (this too is a preference thing)

Preheat oven to 350 peaches and pour off the juice. After all the juice is out, well almost all you won't be able to get all of it out...dump peaches into a 13x9 glass dish. Set this aside.
In a large bowl put in the butter (softened) add the sugar and the flour. Now kinda dig in and just mix it all up. Get the kids to help too. This is fun. Just keep mushing it around until it turns into the consistency of lumpy dirt. It will hold together when you pinch it softly.
Now...just start to sprinkle this all over the peaches...just keep putting it everywhere there is peaches showing...get the edges too. It won't cover all of the peaches...but just keep going until your out of the mixture.

Now put this in the oven uncovered for 45-60 minutes. Keep watching it around the 45 minute mark. You want the top to start getting brown all over it. The more brown the better. That is when it is done....
Remove from can cool it a bit and then serve it over ice cream. Or eat it cold.
We eat this for breakfast the next morning...IT IS SOOOO YUMMY! And see? I told you it was easy.

So now...go do what you love!
