Blackberry Peach Crisp – the perfect summer dessert!
You guys know how much I love a crisp. So much so that I forgo the traditional pie situation every holiday season and break out the apple crisp and pile it high with ice cream. It’s something about that crispy hot topping paired with seasonal produce and ice cream that just makes me endlessly happy. Last weekend after I went a little nuts at the Santa Monica farmers market and bought a flat of peaches (that’s 12 for anyone who’s counting) I needed a way to use them up before I left town! Obviously I made a Blackberry Peach Crisp because I’m here to make all of our lives a little more delicious.
This baby is loaded with all of summers bounty. Fresh peaches and a handful of super sweet blackberries. Once all that is ready to roll, it’s topped with my crisp recipe and then baked until bubbly perfection.
Heads up – a lot of people call for their peaches to be peeled when baking with them, but peeling peaches is a total pain in the butt and I actually don’t mind the skin. That said, feel free to peel your peaches if that’s more your jam.
Once it’s baked, just top it with all the ice cream and then DIG IN.!
