Fresh Peach Crisp or Paradise

4 cups peaches
2 tablespoons lemon juice or kirsch
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/2 teaspoon salt, if butter is unsalted
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Drop peaches in boiling water for 30 seconds or so, then peel, pit and slice. Season with lemon juice. Put in a 9-inch pie plate or dish.

Work the flour, brown sugar, butter, salt and cinnamon like pastry with a pastry blender or with the finger tips. The mixture must be lightly worked so that it does not become oily. Spread these crumbly ingredients over the peaches. Bake for about 30 minutes. Serve hot or cold with sweet or cultured sour cream. (We used sweetened whipped cream, but vanilla ice cream would be good, too.)
