Introduction:

We have a peach tree in our yard that’s about 3 years old.  I’ve watched as the first harvest gave us 6 peaches, to this year’s crop of about 25.  Fresh off the vine peaches are the best!  I made a peach crisp with this recipe first, but after our peaches ran out, I decided to give this recipe a try with a mix of stone fruits.  The variety of fruit gives this crisp so much flavor.  I love the sweetness of the peaches with the tartness of the plums!

Finished product. She’s a beauty.

Patiently (this is the most tedious part of the recipe!) peel and cube the fruit into 1” pieces.  In your larger bowl, toss the fruit with the cornstarch, cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Lay the fruit in the baking dish.  Now for the fun part!  Add all the ingredients for the crumb topping in a small bowl.  With clean fingers, work all the ingredients together until the butter is well incorporated and the topping is crumbly.  Evenly distribute the topping over the fruit.  Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.  Let slightly cool before devouring!

Proposals:

For breakfast, I top a cold spoonful of the crisp with a helping of vanilla Greek yogurt!  For dessert, I serve it warm with whipped cream or ice cream. 

Closing Remarks:

This topping in itself is a go-to recipe for me.  I use it to top all of my crisps (think apple too) as well as pies (think cherry)!!!  You can easily leave out the nuts and double the oats if allergies are an issue.
