Gluten Free Peach and Blueberry Crisp Recipe
Hooray! It's peach season. My children and I picked some peaches at our local Farmer's Market on Thursday. They are sweet and juicy, and we cannot seem to get enough of them. We have been eating them by themselves, but tonight we had a special friend come over for dinner. Whenever she comes over, we like to have a scrumptious dessert to serve. Since the peaches have been so yummy, I decided that I wanted to make a peach crisp. When I was looking in the fridge for the peaches, I saw that we still had some blueberries from the same Farmer's Market trip. So, I decided to throw them in as well. Here is my recipe.
Peach and Blueberry Crisp
1 cup blueberries
3 tablespoons of lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups gluten free rolled oats
1/2 cup tapioca starch
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 pinch salt
1/2 cup melted butter (1 stick)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. I sprayed my baking dish with Pam, but I am not sure that it is absolutely necessary.
Pit the 6 peaches, and cut them into bite size pieces. Put them in a medium bowl. Add 1 cup of blueberries, lemon juice, and sugar. Mix these ingredients together, and pour them into the baking dish. Place baking dish on a lined cookie sheet to keep your oven clean in case the juices overflow from the baking dish.
Rinse out the medium bowl and pat it dry. Add the gluten free oats, tapioca starch, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. Mix the dry ingredients together. Add the melted butter and mix together again until the topping is crumbly.
Pat the topping onto the filling, and bake in the oven for 60 minutes. When the topping is browned, and the fruit is soft when you stick a knitting need in it, it is done. Take it out of the oven and let it cool. Serve it by itself or with a scoop of ice cream. YUMMY!
This crisp was an amazing, and I would be proud to serve this to anyone who stopped by. The fruit just melted in my mouth, and I loved the crispness of the topping. I might try this topping with other seasonal fruits too. Hope you enjoy sharing this recipe with your loved ones as well.
