It's blueberry season!!! And with the 4th of July holiday right around the corner, the timing couldn't be better. I went to bed last night with visions of buttery shortcakes topped with pillows of whipped cream and piles of fresh strawberries and blueberries. Bowls of fresh berries and melon balls sprinkled with fresh mint. And stacks of hot blueberry pancakes and waffles on our breakfast table. (Some people dream of sugar plums - I dream of blueberry desserts.) 😂
Lucky for me, I have friends who are equally blueberry obsessed - or at least willing to spend a morning with me filling buckets with the tiny fruit. If you've never been blueberry picking - I highly recommend it. Starting the day in the blueberry field is therapeutic and relaxing - and it's cheaper than therapy.
Fresh blueberries in our house are treated like little pearls of gold. Not a single berry is wasted in a smoothie - frozen blueberries work just fine for those. The hand picked, carefully chosen blueberries that I bring home, get the star treatment. Blueberry muffins, blueberry pies and pancakes - those are the recipes that can really highlight the fresh flavor of the berries.
I've been dreaming about blueberry crisp since my mom made one during our last visit. It was sooo good!! So with every blueberry that I dropped into my basket, I could see the reality of that blueberry crisp getting closer. I really can't believe that I haven't posted a blueberry crisp recipe on my blog before this.
Because I get really stingy with my hand picked blueberries and I didn't want to use ALL of my berries in one dish soooo I decided to add some fresh peaches to the mix. Literally. 😂 A Peach and Blueberry Crisp is the perfect way to highlight both fruits and still have some fresh blueberries leftover for muffins and pancakes.
Peach Blueberry Crisp
For the Topping
Bake 1 hour at 375. Let cool 30 minutes before serving.
There was no way that we could eat this warm blueberry cobbler without a scoop of vanilla ice cream. We're not barbarians. 😂 But when can't drive yourself to the store to buy ice cream, you pull out your ice cream maker and mix up a batch of homemade vanilla ice cream. 🍨 This Peach Blueberry Crisp with homemade vanilla ice cream was AMAZING!
