I made my first crisp while living in Minnesota. We had discovered the fun of visiting apple orchards, and quickly became hooked on apple crisp. Peach crisp is the same idea, and just as good (if not better!)  I used local peaches from the farmer's market for this recipe. And confession time: the first time I made it I ate the whole thing (over 2 days...) I love the sweet, tangy fresh fruit flavor with the buttery crunch on top. Fresh vanilla whipped cream goes perfectly on the side.
