What is a Crisp?

Crisps, crumbles, and cobblers are all fruit-filled baked desserts. Crisp and crumble are very similar desserts, with crisp being most commonly used in the U.S. and crumble in Great Britain.

In crisps and crumbles, the topping is a crumbly texture made from flour, butter, and usually oatmeal. A cobbler, on the other hand, is topped with a biscuit-type crust.

Using Frozen Fruit or Canned Fruit

This recipe can be made with fresh, frozen, or canned fruit. You can also combine fruits, such as fresh blueberries with frozen peaches. It will taste best if you make it with fresh peaches and fresh blueberries.

If using canned fruit, drain it before using it in the recipe. If using frozen fruit, don’t thaw it. The final dessert will probably be runnier if you don’t use fresh fruit, but it will still taste amazing.

Other Key Ingredients

For exact amounts needed see the recipe card below

Sugar – I prefer to use brown sugar in the filling and granulated sugar in the crisp topping. 

Cornstarch – The cornstarch helps thicken the filling, so it isn’t soupy.

Rolled oats – Use old-fashioned oats or rolled oats. Steel-cut oats or quick cooking oats will not work as well.

Other basic ingredients needed include butter, lemon juice, cinnamon, flour, and salt

How to Make Peach Blueberry Crisp

1. Make the Filling

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and spray a 2-3 quart casserole dish or glass baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

Combine the peaches, blueberries, brown sugar, melted butter, lemon juice, and cornstarch in a large bowl. Stir it all together so that the mixture coats the fruit.

Put the fruit mixture into the prepared baking dish and spread it out to cover the entire baking dish.

2. Make the Topping

Put the oats, flour, sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a medium-sized bowl. Stir to mix. Then pour the melted butter over the topping ingredients and mix. 

Spoon the oatmeal mixture over the fruit mixture in the baking dish. Spread it out to cover the fruit completely.

Bake in a preheated oven for 45-55 minutes. When it is done, the topping will be golden brown and crispy, and the filling will be bubbly. 

Serving Ideas

This peach blueberry crisp tastes best when it is warm. It tastes great by itself, but it is fantastic topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. The warm fruit filling contrasts with the creamy ice cream and the crisp oat topping for a burst of flavor.

You can also add some yogurt on top to get some creamy flavor with fewer calories. Peach blueberry crisp topped with yogurt makes a great brunch or breakfast treat.

Storing Fruit Crisp

Store leftover fruit crisp in an airtight container. It will keep for 1-2 days at room temperature or 3-4 days if refrigerated. To reheat it, microwave it for 1-2 minutes. Or place it in the oven at 350 degrees F for 5 minutes.

FAQ

Do you have to peel peaches?

No, you don’t have to peel the peaches for most fruit desserts such as cobblers, crostatas, and crisps. The skins will soften as they cook and not be noticeable. But you can peel the fruit if you prefer.

What baking pan do I use?

I baked this blueberry peach crisp in a 2-quart baking casserole. But any 2-3 quart baking dish would work fine. You can also make this in an 8-10 inch cast iron skillet. A pie dish will also work if it is a deep dish.
