Blueberry-Peach Crisp

Blueberry-Peach Crisp

A baked crisp is a tasty way to enjoy fruit in a slightly sweetened form. With frozen peaches and blueberries readily available, you can enjoy this combination of fruits all year. You can substitute fresh seasonal fruit – just cut back the covered baking time by about 15 minutes.

If you don't have a food processor, use a pastry blender or fork to cut in the butter until crumbly.

If you're trying to gain weight, top with whipped cream or ice cream.

For a stronger flavor, add another teaspoon of cinnamon to the fruit mixture.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups frozen sliced peaches
  • 2 cups frozen blueberries
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbsp plus 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup (packed) light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 4 Tbsp butter, cut into pieces

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In an 8-by-8-inch baking pan, combine the peaches and blueberries. In a bowl, combine sugar and 2 tablespoons or the flour. Add to fruit, stirring well to combine.
  3. In a food processor, combine the remaining 1/2 cup flour, oats, brown sugar, and cinnamon and pulse briefly to combine. Add the butter and process until mixture is moist throughout and begins to clump together. Sprinkle over fruit and cover tightly with foil.
