Pear-Peach Crisp

Peaches. I’ve never really been too fond of them, until recently. My husband is pretty happy that I’ve finally taken a liking to them as peach desserts have always been among his favorites. Crisps and cobblers have been hitting my radar pretty heavily lately, so this peach and pear crisp really fit the bill for me.

The original recipe is from The Southern Lady Cooks. In her version she uses all peaches, I changed mine to use both peaches and pears. I also upped the spices and have tried it both with brown sugar and white sugar. I was a little confused by her instructions on when to add the salt since hers said to add it in two different steps, so I just added it in the first step and it worked fine :) I even made a version with pineapple and peaches, which was quite good, but I think it needed to be baked longer.

This is very easy to make [full printable instructions below]. You’ll drain the fruit and reserve the juice. Layer the fruit, make the batter then top the fruit with it. Whisk the sugar with the spices and cover the batter. Boil the juices and cover the top with it. Bake it and enjoy!

At any rate, this is an amazingly delicious dessert that’s perfect for the holidays, or really, anytime you have a sweet tooth. A generous scoop of vanilla ice cream is definitely the “icing on the cake” so to speak. This will be gracing my Thanksgiving table this year!

Notes from Amanda

Variation: Fresh Fruit - If you prefer to use fresh fruit, use about 4 cups of fresh peaches and pairs and substitute 1 cup of water for the canned juices.
