Speedy cooks may occasionally give side dishes short shrift, but nobody forgets about dessert. We've streamlined classic desserts so that making them is speedier, more efficient, and healthier.  Plus, many have steps that can be done ahead sometime during the day.

Our first tasty treat is this Easy Peach Crisp.

For this dessert, be sure to choose peaches that are ripe but still slightly firm to the touch. If you have a large toaster oven, use it to broil the granola for the topping.
