Peach Raspberry Crisp
This Peach Raspberry Crisp is a delectable dessert that graces our table at least once each summer. The peach raspberry combo is heavenly!
Take advantage of glorious, ripe summer fruit when it’s in season. This easy fresh peach dessert recipe is on our menu whenever I can find ripe, juicy peaches.
Why You Must Make
- If you haven’t baked with the combination of peaches and raspberries, you’re in for a delicious surprise! The pairing is terrific!
- A crisp is easier than a pie, cobbler, or tart!
- It’s the perfect summer dessert when peaches are at their peak.
Peaches are one of my favorite summer indulgences. I love eating a piece of this ripe, juicy fruit for an afternoon snack, but a crisp, cobbler, or pie truly makes my heart sing. Served slightly warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or even this No-Churn Roasted Peach Ice Cream is pure heaven. Bill prefers his peaches cooked, so I’ve adapted my favorite apple crisp into a delectable seasonal dessert.
How to Make
- Slice the peaches and add them to a mixing bowl with the sugar, thickener, and cinnamon. If using thawed frozen or canned peaches make sure to drain excess juices before mixing them with the other filling ingredients.
- Very gently, mix in the fresh raspberries.
- Next, make the crumble topping. This is a peach crisp without oats since my picky husband only eats oatmeal for breakfast. But if you’d prefer more texture, check out my Rhubarb Crisp recipe for how to make an oatmeal crumble topping.
- Put the peach and raspberry mixture in a casserole dish. I use a ceramic deep-dish pie plate. Cover the surface with the crumble mixture. PRO-Tip: I like to use my fingers to pinch together the crumbs as I sprinkle them over the filling to make some larger crumbles.
- Bake as directed. PRO-Tip: To ensure the filling thickens, it must get hot enough to bubble.
How to Serve
This peach crisp needs to cool long enough for the juices to thicken, but it’s best to serve slightly warm. We love to top each portion with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Other complementary flavors like homemade peach, cinnamon, or caramel ice cream would work well, too.
If you haven’t tried the peach raspberry combo in your desserts, it’s a must. My husband adores my Peach Raspberry Pie, but this crisp is just as gratifying with much less effort. Fruit crisps like this Old Fashioned Apple Crisp are also a family favorite. No rolling out of a pastry crust, just the mixing, and sprinkling of a sweet, buttery crumble.
Baked with a touch of cinnamon until the juices are hot, bubbly, and fragrant will have everyone hovering around the oven. It will become a summer dessert tradition.
- Make sure to use ripe, fragrant summer peaches. Taste a slice if you’re unsure if they’re flavorful.
- PRO-Tip: You don’t have to grease your pan, but since you’ll have a leftover butter wrapper from the butter used in the topping, you can run that over the surface of the dish before adding the filling. It will make cleanup a little easier.
- Bake until you see the filling bubbling. This ensures the juices will have thickened.
- Check that the crisp topping is lightly browned and appears cooked in the middle.
- PRO-Tip: If you’d like the crisp topping a little browner, place it under the broiler, briefly, watching it carefully so it doesn’t burn.
- Bake the crisp on a foil-lined baking sheet in case the filling juices run down the sides of the dish. It’s easier to take that extra step than clean the oven.
Frequently Asked Questions
Both are fruit desserts, but the toppings differ. A crisp has a crumble topping and a cobbler has a biscuit topping that’s sprinkled with sugar.
Cool to room temperature then store at room temperature for up to 2 days or the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Covering the top with a paper towel helps prevent the topping from getting soggy from any humidity in the air.
Individual servings can be reheated in the microwave for 15-30 seconds depending on your appliance. If reheating the whole dessert, place in a 350-degree oven for 15-20 minutes.
If the topping needs a little refreshing and you have experience using your broiler, place it about 6 inches under the broiler, and do not walk away. Keep the door cracked and pull it out as soon as you see the topping start to brown.
If you have extra juicy peaches or used frozen peaches and added any of the juices, there won’t be enough flour to thicken the extra liquid.
Yes! Canned peaches are packed at the peak of ripeness, so they are a good substitute for fresh peaches. Drain, slice and use as directed in the recipe.
