I know I try to post only whole ingredients and replace mixes, but there was this sale…. and well, the cookie mixes were practically FREE! So, I bought some to experiment. If you ever need something fast and easy AND outstanding to take to a pot luck that looks homemade – THIS is it. Perfect Peach Crisp for summer!! If peaches are not in season, feel free to use canned or frozen. I love frozen peaches because they are sometimes even better than the ones you find sitting in the grocery store.
I also tested this recipe using a lower calorie substitute for the butter: nonfat plain Greek yogurt. If you still use a little bit of butter, the topping is STILL crispy. Perhaps not as much, but crispy enough to consider this a “crisp”. Oh so good!
You can also successfully cut this recipe in half. I measured 8 oz. of cookie mix and it worked out great this way as well.
Easy Peach Crisp
serves 8-10 hearty servings
1 – (1 lb. 1.5oz.) package of Betty Crocker Oatmeal Cookie Mix
8 Tb. butter, melted**
5 cups fresh peaches (sliced and peeled), or 29 oz. canned peaches (drained), or 2 lbs. frozen peaches (thawed and drained)
**For fewer calories you can use 4 Tb. of butter melted (to keep it crispy!) and 2-3 Tb. of plain Greek Yogurt. Enough to moisten the mix
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 2 qt. casserole dish or 9×9 square dish.
2. Add your peaches to the casserole dish.
3. In a large bowl, mix your oatmeal cookie mix with the melted butter or butter/yogurt combination.
4. Sprinkle the topping onto the peaches. Bake 25-35 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream, whipped cream or plain!
Crisps and cobblers are my favorite summer dessert. The crispy topping is my favorite part. 🙂 Its good to know there is a quick shortcut that still produces a pretty and tasty dessert! I have to keep an eye open for the oatmeal cookie mix. Where did you find it?

The Betty Crocker Oatmeal Cookie Mix was with the cake mixes at our grocery store. I’ve seen it also at Target and Walmart as well in the baking aisle near the cake mix/frostings. I hope that helps! Use all butter if you want lots of crisp! My Greek Yogurt substitute worked, but not AS crispy as it could have been. Give and take 🙂 Thanks for visiting!!!
