Pioneer Woman Did it Again!

The Pioneer Woman stole my heart, again. This time she did it with a peach crisp with maple cream sauce.

I saw this recipe last year sometime and tucked it away to use this year. I almost forgot. I wish I would have remembered earlier when I had tons of peaches. but oh well. I had a few local peaches in my fridge but I did have to supplement with store bought peaches.

Pioneer Woman's Peach Crisp with Maple Cream Sauce
1 c flour (next time I will use half oats)
1/2 c sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1/2 t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
1/4 t salt
1/2 c butter

5-6 c fresh peaches, peeled and sliced (I think you could use canned as well and I used a bit more and put it in a 9 x 13)
1/2 lemon, zest and juice
2 T maple syrup (I used fake stuff, but real would be better)

Combine first 6 ingredients of topping. Cut in butter until course crumbs. Combine peaches with syrup and juice and zest. Layer in baking dish. Top with topping. Cover with foil. Bake at 350 15 minutes. Remove foil and bake 15-20 more minutes.


1 1/2 c heavy cream
5 T maple syrup
3 T corn syrup

Cook in small saucepan over medium heat until thick and creamy, about 15 minutes. Chill and serve over crisp.
I Thought I would need more sauce because it sounded so good, so one and a halved it, but I didn't need all the extra.

I think it is the sauce that makes this so delish. The sauce could be used for many things. And I plan on using it for many things. Because to be honest, when our peaches are in peak season, it is a little hot to be eating this dessert.

So what else could this sauce be used for?

I wonder if it would be good over a breakfast/coffee cake of some sort. It would have to be a pretty low key cake.
I bet it would be great over chilled cut up fresh fruit, like peaches for instance

I don't normally have a sweet tooth, but this would crumble all resolve! Yum!

I had forgotten that recipe. Now I'll have to try it. I bet the sauce would be great with plain old fresh peaches.

Wow, I clicked on the link to the Pioneer Ladies site and now my mouth is watering. I'll have to try it sometime for sunday dessert or something. It would be a hit with the in-laws and my hubby. Thanks for sharing!
