Golden Peach Crunch

Golden Peach Crunch
One of my favorite "comfort food" desserts.
The whole house smells yummy when this is baking.

Golden Peach Crunch

2 cans (1 lb, 13 oz) cling peaches
1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 Tablespoon lemon juice

1 cup oats
1/3 cup melted butter 
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt

Drain peaches. Mix with cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg and lemon juice. 
Put in 8 or 9 inch square baking pan. 
Combine rest of ingredients. Mix. Sprinkle onto peaches.
Bake at 375 for 30 minutes.

Serve warm with fresh whipped cream or a scoop of cold vanilla ice cream.
(Sometimes I double the topping for extra crunch.)

I made a double batch tonight. 
One pan for my family.  
The second pan for a family with a daughter in the hospital.   
Please say a prayer for Miss N.  


  1. Hey Gayle, your Golden Peach Crunch, sounds, looks and no doubt tastes for yummy baking smells through the house. Well, my mouth is watering as I read about it.

    I'm sure the recipient of the extra dessert will be very grateful and I'll keep Miss N in my prayers and expect a speedy recovery.
