individual mango peach crisp

DSC07459
Okay, I know that we passed peach season a few weeks ago but here in Oregon we had a bit of a late start to our summer weather so the peaches hung around a bit longer than than usual. The other day I was doing a bit of grocery shopping and I spotted some beautiful peaches at a great price and just couldn't pass them up. I decided to put my lovely peaches into a crisp.

Unfortunately, when I cut into the first peach, it was all brown and icky inside. Darn! Well, luckily I had a bag of mango chunks in the freezer so I decided to switch things up and use a combination of mango and peaches in my crisp. While I was at it, I tossed in a few dried cranberries as well.

I originally found this recipe over at 101 Cookbooks. The recipe called for a combination of plums and peaches.

Overall, I enjoyed this recipe. The topping wasn't crumbly enough for me. I think it was the addition of the yogurt I didn't really love. It's strange, I followed the directions for the crisp topping, yet mine looks nothing like the original. Hmmm. I'll have to give it another go I guess.

The first day I put a dollop of Greek yogurt on top and a dusting of nutmeg. The next day I tried it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Individual Mango Peach Crisp
recipe adapted from 101 Recipes

serves about 6

Fruit
2 cups ripe peaches, cut into bite sized pieces
2 cups fresh or frozen mango, cut into bite sized pieces
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup natural cane sugar
1 1/2 tbsp corn starch

Crisp
3/4 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup brown sugar (or a bit less)
1/2 tsp nutmeg
pinch of salt
1/3 cup butter, melted
1/3 cup Greek honey yogurt

Six 1/2 cup ramekins

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Place the fruit in a medium sized bowl. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the 1/4 cup sugar and the corn starch. Sprinkle over the fruit and toss gently. Evenly distribute fruit into the ramekins.

In a large bowl combine the oats, flour, brown sugar and nutmeg. Stir in the butter and yogurt. Spread an equal amount of crisp mixture over each ramekin of fruit.

Place the ramekins onto a baking sheet. Place into the oven on the middle rack and bake for 25-35 minutes until topping is golden.

Serve warm with a dollop of honey yogurt or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

TKW said...

These are so cute! I like my topping on the crumbly side, too. This looks more cobbler-like.

Jenn said...

Ah love it!! I don't think I had myself some peaches this past summer. The seasons feel out of whack for some reason. Oh well...I think I'll bake me up some crisps this weekend.

Faith said...

This looks perfect, Kim! I miss peached already, lol!

Claudia said...

Unexplicably, mangoes are on sale in MN right now - but alas and alck there are no more peaches. So jealous because oh that looks grand!

pigpigscorner said...

Looks fab! Lucky you, all we have are apples!

Emily Z said...

Wow, Kim, this crisp is gorgeous! You took such great photos, it belongs in Bon Appettit! I love peaches, I don't know why I have not cooked with them more!

Stella said...

Pretty, Kim! I think they look delicious, but I recently made a supposed crumble too that had more of a cake topping. It was good but not what I expected. It's funny how expectation can affect us humans;)
Oh, and I might try something like this-I have so much frozen mango in the freezer...

Bridgett said...

Kim, what a fantastic idea for a 'switch' from the peaches. I think I might like this version even more!

LimeCake said...

Monet said...

Kim,
This looks delicious and nutritious. I love the healthy adaptations you made to your crust. My little sister loves mnago, so I may have to make these the next time she comes in town. Thank you for sharing!

Who cares if summer has passed - your mango peach crisp looks wonderful! Heck, we could always use frozen peaches, right?? Love the crumble topping!

mysteryhistorymom said...

This looks so incredibly delicious! How do you stay so trim, dear friend?? Oh, and Shaun Cassidy! Check out hulu.com and see if you can watch the Oprah show. I bet it's there! He was so charming and even sang- for the first time in public in 30 years.:) Lori

Lisa said...

You can never have too many peaches, can you? And the addition of cranberries makes anything seasonal well into fall. This crisp looks tremendously yummy. I don't know if I can find peaches but pears might work well instead...

Lisa said...

These look absolutely delicious!

The Blonde Duck said...

I totally want a crisp now.

blackbookkitchendiaries said...

Danielle said...

i'd totally go for the ice cream topping! I bet the mango was great with the cranberries and peaches. I'm sure you can adjust the topping and make it fabulous!

scrambledhenfruit said...

Your combination of fruits sounds fabulous! Love those individual desserts. :)

Diana's Cocina said...

I really like the idea of mangos in this crisp. Love those individual servings. But, I might need a couple of individual servings!! LOL!

Reeni said...

We still have lots of local peaches in our markets at rock bottom prices - so strange for being late in the year. Your crisp sounds completely divine! I like the individual servings!

Catherine said...

Oh my God, this looks fantastic! Beautiful presentation. It sounds wonderful as well!
Cheers~

Super cute! I wonder if it would work without the yogurt.

Happy anniversary!
