The berries are almost falling off the vines and the peaches are arriving from eastern Washington by the case full. Since the two fruits are ripe at the same time why not combine them for a Peach and Blackberry Crisp.
Our family prefers a crunchy crisp to a cobbler, not that cobblers are wonderful. The smell of oatmeal and brown sugar alone is almost enough to satisfy my craving. Crisp fillings are endless and are so easy to throw together. Although I do need some vanilla ice cream to go along, vanilla yogurt will do in a pinch.
When coming up with this recipe I combined our families apple crisp recipe and my favorite strawberry rhubarb crunch recipe. The results were bowl scraping good. Especially when we topped it with homemade vanilla ice cream. This crisp turned out so great I had to share with the neighbors before I ate the whole pan.
Peach and Blackberry Crisp:
- 2-3 cups peaches, diced
- 2-3 cups blackberry, fresh or frozen
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 Tbs flour
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup oatmeal
- 3/4 cup flour
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
Combine berries, peaches, 1 cup sugar, and 2 Tbs flour. Place in a lightly greased 9 x 13″.
Next combine the remaining ingredients to form a coarse crumb texture. Sprinkle evenly on the fruit.
Bake in a preheated oven at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes or until golden brown and bubbling.
