Nutty Peach Crisp Recipe

A co-worker brought this easy, delicious dessert to work, and I couldn't resist asking for the recipe. A moist bottom layer made with canned peaches and a boxed cake mix is covered with a lovely golden topping of coconut and pecans. It tastes wonderful served warm with ice cream. —Nancy Carpenter Sidney, Montana

"Yum, yum, oh... Did I say yum? Its peach season so I used fresh peaches, added 1/2 cup water and sprinkled them with 1/2 cup brown sugar. I mixed the butter in with the cake mix too."

"Not sure what I did wrong - none of the other reviewers seem to have had a problem. Half of the cake mix was still dry powder and the other half didn't bake up. I did add an extra can of the peaches, drained, since I was afraid to change the liquid to cake mix ratio, but maybe I shouldn't have. The recipe didn't seem to have enough peaches, but next time I'll be good and follow the recipe exactly. And I will try it again, because these quick and easy 5 ingredient recipes are lifesavers!"
