PW'S Peach Crisp with Maple Cream Sauce

We actually got out a little this weekend, which was a nice and much needed change (this job is a blessing, but takes a toll on you with 28 little love bugs running around...yes some of them actually running lol). We scoped out some local sights including the sun dial bridge and a farmer's market at Turtle Bay.

We both have been eye balling peaches lately and these were so soft and juicy-so we got a few pounds because I wanted to make a peach dessert.

It feels weird doing a food post lol it seems like forever since I have baked of cooked something new...for the last month we have been eating whatever we had in the pantry and quick thrown together dinners, so it was nice to try a new recipe.

I was so excited to read on someones blog that The Pioneer Women
one of my all time favorite bloggers/cookbook author is getting her own cooking show on the food network! I am totally going to DVR it and it premieres this Saturday.

So in her Honor I decided to make her Peach crisp and it turned out way yummy!

To make the Maple cream sauce (I made it ahead of time because it needs to chill in the fridge)
you pour 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream, 5 tbs. maple syrup and 3tbs. light Corn Syrup in a sauce pan. Stir over medium heat until thick and reducing about 1/3. She noted that this takes about 15 minutes so I stuck with that...after you put it in the fridge it thickened up a lot more too.

To start the crumble in a medium bowl mix 1 cup flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup light brown sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon and nutmeg and 1/4 tsp salt using a fork or I used a pastry Blender.

Cut butter into small pieces and add to flour mixture.

Then peel and cut up 5-6 peaches and add the zest and juice from 1/2 a lemon.

Add 2 tbs real maple syrup to peaches and stir.

Put peach mixture in small pan (8" or 9 ") and cover evenly with crumb topping.

Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, then take foil off and cook for 20-30 more minutes... I kept mine in for 35-40 minutes after because it was having problems crisping up-real juicy peaches!

Serve warm and drizzle Maple sauce all over ! Yummo!
