I thought a peach crisp sounded really good for today. I haven't made one in ages and since I had some very ripe peaches from farmer's market sitting on my counter staring at me every time I walked into the room I decided a better use them or lose them.
Unfortunately, I didn't have quite enough so I also threw in some peaches I had in my freezer.
I also had some frozen blueberries left so I decided it would be a yummy idea to throw those into the mix as well.
I thought the flavor was really quite wonderful in this but I have to tell you, it was a little runny. I think next time I will toss the fruit with some corn starch or flour. If anyone has a better secret to share, please let me know.
- 6 cups of peaches
- 1 cup of blueberries
- 2-3 tbsp of honey
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
Place the fruit in a greased baking pan. Top with oat mixture. Bake on 375 for 30-35 minutes until fruit is nice and bubbly and oats are golden brown.
Serve with vanilla bean ice cream or top with a little whip. Ooh, homemade cinnamon ice cream would be really great too!
I noticed the honeybees are all over these delightful flowers.
We originally planted three of these but did not put the seeds deep enough so two of them came crashing down. I'm praying this one stays put.
The bees can use all of the help they can get!
