Peachy Gingersnap Crisp


  • Vegetable oil cooking spray
  • 8 gingersnap cookies
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon margarine or butter
  • 2 16-ounce cans of peach slices in fruit juice, drained (or 5 fresh peaches)
  • Frozen yogurt

Materials Needed

  • 8-inch square baking pan
  • Resealable plastic bag
  • Medium bowl
  • 2 table knives
  • Can opener
  • Oven mitts
  • Measuring spoons
  • Wooden rolling pin


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Spray the baking pan with vegetable oil cooking spray.
  3. Put the cookies into the plastic bag and close tightly. Crush them with your hands (or a rolling pin.)
  4. Put the crushed gingersnaps, brown sugar, and cinnamon in the bowl. Add the margarine (or butter).
  5. Hold a table knife in each hand and draw the knives across each other to cut the margarine (or butter) into the dry ingredients. Keep cutting until the mixture is crumbly.
  6. Open the 2 cans of peaches. Drain the liquid. If you are using fresh peaches, wash them. Use a paring knife to remove the skin and cut them into ¾ inch slices.
  7. Arrange the peaches in the baking dish. Then sprinkle the gingersnap mixture over the peaches.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Remove from the oven with oven mitts. Serve warm or at room temperature with frozen yogurt topping.

*** Gingersnap cookies are low in fat compared to many other varieties. The gingersnaps give a familiar dish a new flavor. This recipe takes about 15 minutes to assemble and 20 minutes or more to bake. It makes enough for six to share.
