NECTARINE, PEACH, AND BLUEBERRY CRISP

IMG_8850Summer is here, and what better way to kick off my favorite season than with a simple and delicious stone fruit crisp. This dessert can easily be made a day before and reheated just before serving. I like to pair it with cold vanilla bean ice cream or fresh whipped cream. Eat it outside with friends and family. So good.

*As a side note, I have also made this dessert gluten free by substituting Cup 4 Cup flour for the all purpose flour, and gluten free oats for the regular old fashioned oats. The dessert usually needs to cook a bit longer when making it gluten free.

IMG_8842For the topping: In an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the flour, sugars, sea salt, oatmeal, and cold butter. Mix on low for 1-2 minutes or until the mixture is large crumbles. Sprinkle evenly over the fruit, covering the fruit completely. Place the baking dish on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 50 minutes or until the top is brown and the fruit is bubbly. Let cool slightly before serving.
