Oh my goodness. THIS IS SO GOOD!
One of my favorite desserts EVER is my Mom's famous Apple Crisp- it's brown sugary-buttery-cinnamony goodness is perfect in the fall and is oh so delicious with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
I was a little skeptical about making a crisp with not apples, but rather blackberries and peaches. Do these even go together?
Oh yes they do. A match made in heaven. The best part about this recipe is that it is my OWN! I got inspiration from allrecipes.com- a peach/blackberry cobbler but I instead wanted to use the crumb topping from my mom's apple crisp. I made a few changes though, so I can officially, definitely say that this is my first recipe! I feel so accomplished :)
I quote my Grandparents when I say that this is "the best dessert I've ever had." Definitely not a guilt-free splurge by any means, but surely one worth indulging in.
I can't wait to make it again!
Blackberry Peach Crisp
8 cups chopped peeled peaches (about 4 pounds)
3 cups blackberries (I used fresh)
1/4 cup flour
sugar for sprinkling
4 cups quick rolled oats
4 cups packed brown sugar
2 cups flour
4 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 cups butter, softened
Preheat oven to 350. Combine peaches, blackberries, and 1/4 cup flour in large bowl. Toss until well combined. Pour into 9x13 pan and sprinkle with sugar. In another very large bowl, mix oats, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and butter together with hands until crumbly. Pour over fruit. (This crumb topping is doubled so it is very likely you will have extra) Bake uncovered for 45 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped topping, if desired.
