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.!

    This looks so yummy!! Do you think frozen blackberries would work or would it make it to soggy?

    • Gaby

      to be totally honest, I haven’t tested it that way so I can’t say for sure. But I feel like it would totally work

  2. Monika

    I can’t wait to make this. I love any kind of crisp, and have never done this combo.

  3. Chelsea

    This was amazing. I had to give away half the pan to my neighbors so I would stop eating it all myself!

  4. Fredda

    You mention a large pan—would that be like a 9 x 13 baking pan? Making this for brunch this week! Thanks!

  5. Amanda M

    Gaby, thanks for sharing this delicious recipe!! I made this tonight and made it vegan + gluten free by substituting Earth Balance ‘butter’ and 1/2 cup almond flour & 1/2 cup tapioca flour—it turned out perfectly. Absolutely delicious way to end the summer!

  6. Linda

    Really..1 and 1\2 cup of butter…seems like too much..just checking?

  7. Monika

    I am so looking forward to making this!!! I love a great crisp!

  8. Sharon

    Can I use gluten free instant regular oatmeal in this recipe?

    • Gaby

      haven’t tested it that way so I can’t say for certain but keep me posted!

  9. Nicole

    Can I substitute anything for the orange juice? Lemon juice would probably be too tart?

  10. Momcook

    Is it supposed to be 1-1/4 STICKS of butter, not cups?! I tried this tonight. Though the fruit mixture turned out so yummy. The crisp as a whole was drowning in butter. 🙁 Wonder what went wrong…

    • Gaby

      it’s correct as written – did you use frozen butter as indicated? If you use room temp, it will certainly have an affect!

  11. flgirl

    Very good recipe, the crumble part is the best of any I’ve made. The frozen butter is spot on. Don’t improvise on that! I’m going to make this again and next time swap out the fruit with strawberries and rhubarb.

    6 cups of sliced peaches equals approximately how many whole peaches?

    • Gaby

      Depends on the size of the peaches! I’d say usually I use anywhere from 4-6

  13. Mel

    Gaby, can you use nectarines instead of peaches in this? Have a bunch I need to use up…

  14. Thyra Sherman

    It says to peel the peaches but in the picture they don’t look peeled-?

    • Gaby

      if you read the post – it explains that I do it both ways! Whichever your preference
