Celebrating Modern Jewish Living Through Food, Tradition, and Family
Juicy, crumbly, and naturally sweet, this peach berry crisp is a delicious, lower-calorie option to satisfy your sweet tooth!
The Backstory: Peach Berry Crisp is a delicious dessert that feels like two desserts in one. To start, you’ve got a symphony of lush summer fruits at their peak of ripeness (sweet and juicy!) that are baked to perfection in a sauce of their natural juices and sugars. Delicious. But on top of that, there’s a golden, crumbly topping that goes way above a traditional pie crust. This we’re talking a combination of oats, brown sugar and cinnamon that feels like the best parts of your favorite crumb cake right on top of the fruit. Need I go on? This dessert is the perfect end to a summer meal and can be served hot, warm or at room temperature. More of the Backstory after the recipe…
