Peach and Blueberry Crisp

Peach season is here!  Go to the market and pick yourself up a basket of fuzzy peaches.

You can tell a peach is ripe when its fragrance becomes extremely sweet, almost like someone has sprayed peach perfume into the air, I love it. The downside though is when a peach is ripe, you have a VERY short time to eat it, preserve it, or make something delicious with it. That’s where my recipe for Peach and Blueberry Crisp comes in.

Peach and blueberry make a great pair and are even better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. This dessert is meant to be rustic, so you don’t even need spend time peeling peaches – the whole recipe is oh so easy!


Peach and Blueberry Crisp

Peach and Blueberry Crisp


5 cups sliced peaches (about 5 medium peaches)
1 cup blueberries
1 tablespoon lemon juice
¾ cup large-flake rolled oats
½ cup packed brown sugar
½ cup flour
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ cup cold butter, cut into small pieces
½ cup sliced almonds


  1. Heat oven to 375°F.
  2. Mix together peaches, blueberries and lemon juice in an 8 x 11-inch baking dish.  Set aside.
  3. Combine oats, sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl.  Using your fingers, work the butter into the dry mixture until it resembles a coarse breadcrumb (there should be no large butter clumps).  Mix in almonds.
  4. Sprinkle evenly over peach mixture and gently tap baking dish on counter.
  5. Bake until fruit is bubbly and topping looks crunchy, about 45 minutes.  Let rest for 10 minutes before serving.

Peach and Blueberry Crisp Tips:

  • Cutting the butter into small cubes first makes it easier to work the butter into the flour mixture. You know you’re done when the flour mixture looks like a slightly moist course breadcrumb.
  • Add the sliced almonds after you’ve worked the butter in the flour mixture so that the almonds stay whole.
  • Letting the crisp rest for at least ten minutes before serving helps the juices from the fruit to thicken.
  • If you don’t have a rectangular glass baking dish, you can use a square one.
