Spice Up Dessert With Sriracha Peach Crisp
By Budget Bytes on June 25, 2012
After hearing that a local ice cream shop was selling a Sriracha-peach ice cream, I knew I had to make something with that flavor combination. A simple, summer peach crisp did the trick!
Sweet and spicy are a classic pair. If you're not sold on the idea, think about all of the wonderful fruit salsas out there. Sweet and spicy were made for each other! Add a sweet, slightly salty butter-crumble topping and you've hit all of the bases. A scoop of cold vanilla ice cream on top quenches the heat nicely, but it's still ahhh-mazing on its own.

|3 lbs. (4-6)||fresh peaches||$4.47|
|1 Tbsp||sriracha hot sauce||$0.12|
|1 tsp||corn starch||$0.04|
|1 cup||rolled oats||$0.17|
|1 cup||all-purpose flour||$0.14|
|1/2 cup||brown sugar||$0.24|
|1/2 cup (1 stick)||butter||$0.40|
STEP 1: Wash the peaches and cut them into small pieces. In a small bowl combine the honey, sriracha, and cinnamon. Pour over the peaches and toss to coat. Sprinkle the cornstarch over the peaches and toss to coat again.
STEP 2: In a separate bowl, combine the oats, flour, salt, and brown sugar. Stir until evenly mixed. Add the butter and mix it in until it forms a crumbly, sand-like mixture. I find it best to just get my hands in there and "squish" it all together.
STEP 3: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place the seasoned peaches in the bottom of an 8x8 (or round) baking dish. Cover the peaches completely with the oat mixture. Bake in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes or until golden brown on top and the fruit is bubbling up. Serve hot or cold!

Wash and dice the peaches. I don't even bother peeling them because I like the texture and color contrast.
In a small bowl, combine the sriracha, honey, and cinnamon.
Drizzle the sriracha honey mixture over the peaches and toss to coat. Sprinkle the cornstarch on the peaches and toss to coat again.
In a separate bowl, first combine the flour, oats, salt, and brown sugar. Stir until they are evenly mixed. Next add the butter (room temperature is easiest).
Mix the butter in until it forms a crumbly, sand-like texture. I just use my hands.
Place the seasoned peaches in the bottom of a baking dish and then cover with the oat crumble mixture. Place the dish in a preheated 375 degree oven and bake until the top is golden brown and the fruit mixture is bubbly (about 30 minutes).
As if the peaches didn't have a vibrant enough color, the sriracha sauce adds an even more saturated peachy-orange color. It's gorgeous AND delicious!
