Peach Crisp...for adults!

The other day I went to the farmers market, and they had "seconds" on peaches.  They were a dollar a pound!!!  I guess they are having a tough peach year, due to the lack of rain.  So most are small, and bruised.  I thought it would be perfect for a dessert.  The Disaronno was a perfect addition to the flavor of the peaches.  If you don't have Disaronno, you can use any almond flavor, or leave it out.  It truly was a perfect summer dessert.
Peach Crisp
8 medium peaches, peeled and sliced
1 cup water
3 tbls cornstarch
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla
2 tbls butter
3 tbls Disaronno
Preheat oven to 375.  Bake for 20 min (or until crisp is golden brown) Place peaches, water, cornstarch, butter and sugar into a pan.  Heat on medium and cook until the sauce is thickened.  Remove from heat and add vanilla and Disarrono.  Place in a buttered 8X8 pan.

6 tbls butter, melted
1/3 cup brown sugar
3 tbls flour
1-1.5 cups of oats
Once butter is melted combine with sugar and let them get happy with one another.  Then you can add oats and flour, stir and sprinkle over the peaches.
