Julia Robert's Fresh Peach Not-so-Crisp (but Yummy)
Looking through my cookbooks, I found something even better -- a peach crisp make with Scotch whiskey! One of his other favs.
Julia Robert's contributed this recipe. I wonder if she still makes it, or even remembers contributing it. Her recipe calls for 3 sticks of butter (yikes!) which I cut in half. That may be why mine was not so crisp, but it was yummy.

1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 t. ground cinnamon
3 sticks ( 24 T.) unsalted butter, melted (I cut the amount of butter in half)
