You can use fresh or frozen fruit.  Canned may be used but will not be as good. This is also good with apples, cherries, blackberries or any other fruit you like.
 
3 cups sliced peaches
1 tsp lemon juice
1 cup plain flour
1 cup sugar
1 beaten egg
1 stick oleo

Spread peaches in a 9x12 (or equivalent) pan and sprinkle lemon juice over to prevent browning. In a bowl mix flour and sugar. Mix in beaten egg until mixture is crumbly and floury. Do NOT add more liquid. Spread crumbly mixture over peaches. Pour melted oleo over top. Bake in 375 degree oven for 45 to 50 minutes until top is nice and brown.
