Apple Peach Crisp

I offered to bring a dessert to a friend’s BBQ and was originally planning on bringing frozen lemon squares. But as I had a bunch of apples and a couple peaches to use up, I decided to go with apple peach crisp instead. Crisp / Brown Apple Betty is an old school dessert, but it’s been around for a long time because it tastes so good.

Both the Hubby and myself have a love/hate relationship with peaches. The fuzz on the outside is just a turnoff, but the sweet Okanagan peaches are a juicy burst of goodness once you’re past it. 

Peeling peaches is very easy and quick. Just put the peaches in a bowl, boil up a kettle of water, pour the water over the peaches and let sit for a minute or so. The skins will slide off with just a touch.

The crumble on top is buttery and crunchy, a perfect pairing with the soft peaches and apples. Even better when served with a huge scoop of vanilla icescream.
