Peach Blueberry Crisp
Happy Wednesday to you! It's the middle of the week and the countdown is on for those working.
I mentioned that I was making a Peach Blueberry Crisp for our girls Tea Party today, here it is. Unfortunately little Man has a fever so we are postponing it; no worries though, because I'll cut this up and deliver it to both families.
For those interested here is the recipe:
Peach Blueberry Crisp
4 cups of diced peaches
2 cups of blueberries-I used mostly fresh but didn't have quite enough so added in some frozen
2 Tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup Light Agave nectar(I used dark)
3/4 Teaspoons of ground Cinnamon
2 1/2 Tablespoons of Cornstarch
1 1/4 Cups of Gluten Free Flour
1/4 Teaspoon Xanthin gum-optional
1/8 Teaspoon salt
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup vegetable shortening(I use butter)
~Preheat oven to 375
~Grease 8 x 8" baking dish
~Combine peaches and blueberries with lemon juice and agave nectar. Toss gently then sprinkle with cinnamon and cornstarch, stirring gently to combine.
~Transfer into baking dish
~Combine the flour, anthem gum, salt and brown sugar. Whisk together, then add in 1/4 teaspoon and oats and toss well
~Melt shortening or butter (30-60 seconds) in microwave and add to dry ingredients, a little at a time; tossing between each addition. Mix until you have large crumbs, spread on top evenly.
~Bake in center of oven for about 40 minutes, until the fruit is bubbling up around the sides. Let cool to room temperature before serving.
