Hi Bold Bakers!

One of my favorite ways to bake boldly is by simply celebrating the ingredients that are in season. During the summer in California I love to highlight the gorgeous stone fruit and berries that fill up the grocery and farmers markets. Inspired by the season, this bright and sweet Peach and Blueberry crisp is a joy to make and such a treat to eat. Topped with an aromatic mixture of pecans, oats and cinnamon then served with vanilla ice cream, this summery peach crisp recipe ticks all the boxes.

How to Make a Crisp

A crisp is actually a very humble dessert but often times the easiest desserts to make wow me the most. A crisp is simply a mixture of fruit topped with a crispy crunchy topping, hence the name “Crisp”. The stars of this crisp are obviously the peaches and blueberries. This is such a winning combination as the peaches are sweet and slightly perfumey and the berries are tart and juicy. While this is my favorite combination of fruit, feel free to get creative and use what is in season near you. To make the filling I toss the sliced peaches and berries with cornstarch, sugar and vanilla. This creates a thick juicy sauce after baking. Next I mix up the crisp topping.

How to Make an Oatmeal Crisp Topping

This classic crisp topping adds loads of texture, crunch and warm totally flavor. Made of rolled oats, sugar, warm cinnamon, rich butter and crunchy pecans you can imagine how irresistible the crunchy edges of this topping are. After dividing the fruit mixture among 4 Good Cook Oven Safe 5 1/2 inch pie dishes, I top each one with a healthy dose of this crisp topping. The flavors are so well paired, pecans, peaches and berries really are best friends. That said, use any nuts you have around. This is more of a method than a recipe. After you make this once I promise you’ll be making all kind of variations all summer long.

The Perfect Single Serve Summer Desserts

After these bake, the peaches are soft and the berries burst making for the sweetest molten fruity filling. The crisp topping is golden brown and full of nutty flavor. While you can make this in one large dish I love to serve it in individual pie dishes. Using my GoodCook Smart Scoop Ice Cream Scoop, I top each crisp with vanilla ice cream and serve immediately. The ice cream melts into the hot crisp, making each bite a bit of creamy fruity crunchy heaven. Enjoy!

    I made mine with apples and strawberries. Made the topping with muesli mix, coconut sugar and butter. Instead of ice cream i had custard instead. I used a shop bought vanilla custard powder and added coconut sugar and some lemon extract. When all the flavours came together it tasted so amazing. Thank you Gemma for helping me fall in love with baking again.

      Hi Jen,
      How lovely! this reminds me of a great combination, which is young rhubarb and strawberries! Really delicious. I never thought to pair them with apple in a crisp, thank you for this idea,
      Gemma 🙂

    I love trying your recipes. Made this tonight. Super delish and a big hit with my family. I couldnt find the mini pie plates so bought 6 of the 14 oz Good Cook Ramekins and they worked perfectly.

      Hi Cindy,
      Yes! it really is delicious, love it too.
      These little ramekins will serve you well. Brilliant for creme brulee, for pannacotta etc. (
      Thank you for taking the trouble to let us know,
      Gemma 🙂

    Hi Gemma, love this summertime dessert- especially topping with homemade ice cream. Actually, I love all your desserts. But can you help me find the good cook 5 in mini pie plates? Perfect for individual pies- not on Amazon or at target . Suggestion ? Thankyou so much

      Michelle check maybe Safeway/Ralphs. They aren’t on Amazon at the moment. Just the big 9 inch dish.

      You might also check TJmaxx 🙂

      Hope this helps,

    Hi Gemma,
    How much vanilla extract should I use in place of the vanilla pods?

    • Gemma Stafford on July 14, 2018 at 3:25 am

      Hi Carol,
      One to two teaspoons, depending on your taste.
      I hope you like this recipe,
      Gemma 🙂

  5. Carol on July 13, 2018 at 7:58 am

    Thanks and I will definitely let you know when I make it.

    Hi Gemma,
    This recipes sound great and I can’t wait to make it!! What size pie dish should I use if I choose to make one big crisp?
    How much vanilla extract should I use instead of the vanilla pods?

    • Gemma Stafford on July 12, 2018 at 9:48 pm

      Hi Carol,

      I can not tell you enough how amazing this crisp is, and when you make it send me a message telling me if you liked it.

      Use anything from a 9 to a 12- inch dish 🙂
