Gluten free Peach Crisp

When Seyfi first found out he had Celiac, one of the first things he said was 'now I can't have peach crisp.' A desert that came into his life so late, was causing him much distress.

He has never mentioned, 'oh, no more baklava...' or 'that's then end of chocolate cake...' He was more concerned about Peach Crisp, peach crisp that he had never eaten before a trip to Canada five years ago.

So, one of the first things I want to make for him was Peach Crisp. I took my usual recipe, and converted it to gluten free, and it turned out wonderful. I served it to guests, and they couldn't even tell the difference.

I found these different looking peaches at the market last weekend. My new fruit guy said that they would be very juicy, the weren't, so I didn't feel bad using them for cooking rather than just eating them.

Gluten free Peach Crisp

8 Peaches, peeled and sliced
a splash of vanilla

Put peaches in an oven proof dish and add the vanilla and give it a good mix.

1 cup all purpose gluten free flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 stick of butter, room temp.
1Tbsp cinnamon
pinch of salt

Put all of these into a bowl together, get your hands in there and rub it all together until you've got something that looks quite crumbly.

Put your crumbly mixture on top of your peaches and cover with tin foil.

Put into the oven at 200 degrees. Once it has baked for ten minutes take the foil off. Continue baking for another 40 minutes, or until golden brown with peachy gooeyness coming through.
