It’s no secret that we love traditional cobblers, like this cherry cobbler, but when it comes to peaches, there’s just something so perfect about the crunchy, crumbly topping of a peach crisp. While cobbler is traditionally made with buttery biscuit dough, crisps rely on a mixture of oatmeal and spices. This allows the flavors of the topping to melt down into the fruit and create a delicious blend of flavors.
In this dish, tart blueberries and lemon zest counteract the sweetness of the peaches for a fresh take on this simple dessert. While this peach crisp has all the bright flavors of summer, the cinnamon and brown sugar topping reminds us of classic family recipes and cozy late-night bonfires.
In both crisps and cobblers, the juicier the fruit is the more flavor will soak into your crust and the better your dessert will taste. This makes fresh, juicy Oregold® Peaches the ideal fruit for summer desserts. Bake these beauties in a cast iron skillet and you’re all set for a summer cookout. Oh, but don’t forget the ice cream!
