Oh how I love summer and everything that encompasses it, but unfortunately it is that time of year again summer is ending and my favorite fruits will soon be out of season!  So every year at this time when fruit is the ripest and the cheapest, I always make some sort of cobbler or crisp recipe.  This recipe is for a delicious Peach Blueberry Crisp made with fresh peaches and blueberries!   Huge props to one of my favorite FoodNetwork chefs, Ina Garten who created this recipe.  It’s super simple and really yummy!!

Here is what you’ll need:

For the filling

  • 2 lbs of firm ripe peaches
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
