Rainy Sunday Butter Peach Crisp

Today is a day of river watching to see if it's truly crested or if the thunderstorms and wind are going to cause more flood problems.

Since being outdoors is out of the question with a growing lake in my backyard, I headed to my woman cave and blasted some Alice Cooper while making this recipe to share.

Butter Peach Crisp

5 cups peaches, pitted and thinly sliced
1/4 cup flour
1/3 cup brown sugar firmly packed
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2  cup water
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 large egg slightly beaten
1/2 cup butter melted

1. Place sliced peaches in a greased 9" square pan.

2. Mix first five ingredients together and stir into peaches.

3. Sift remaining ingredients (not the butter) together, add the beaten egg and stir until crumbly.  Sprinkle over top of the peach mixture.

4. Drizzle melted butter over topping.

Cooking Time: 1 hour

Oven Temperature: 325°F

It's difficult to get nice pictures on a rainy day.
