Fruit Crisp

Happy First Day of Summer–a day late :)!!  And a happy birthday to my grandma June (aka June Bug)!  I took a break from studying to help my mom prepare a birthday meal fit for the birthday girl.

My main contribution to the party (as you can probably guess from the pictures) was a fruit crisp–blueberry and peach!  I chose those flavors because the strawberries and raspberries at the local grocery store were exorbitantly priced.  The peaches were on sale, but not quite ripe–nothing a little sugar couldn’t fix!  I didn’t follow any recipe for this one and instead just kind of threw the typical crisp ingredients into the dish and hoped for the best….and it worked!!

Peach-Blueberry Crisp for JuneBug’s Birthday


~3-4 cups peaches, peeled and sliced

~1.5 cups blueberries

3 tablespoons granulated sugar (or less if your fruit is sweet)

3 tablespoons cornstarch

1.5 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup old-fashioned oats

1 cup brown sugar

few shakes of cinnamon

1 stick of butter, melted


1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Get out a 9 x 13 inch glass pan.

2)  Mix the blueberries, peaches, granulated sugar, and cornstarch together and put in the bottom of the glass pan.

3)  Mix together the flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and melted butter; make sure to leave some clumps!  Spread this over the fruit.

4)  Bake for 45 minutes.  Serve with ice cream if you wish!

Stay tuned for a gluten free version in a couple of weeks…
