Peach and Blueberry Crumbles

Peach and Blueberry crumbles are now officially my favorite fruit dessert! The combination of peaches and blueberries are amazing and the topping is sweet, crumbly and delicious. I made this dessert for a girls luncheon I had with my mom and sister. My dad does not like fruit desserts, so I jumped at the chance to make these crumbles without him present! haha 🙂 This recipe is from Ina Garten’s “Barefoot Contessa at Home” cookbook. Enjoy!

Immerse peaches in boiling water for 30 seconds to 1 minutes.
Immediately place peaches in cold water.
Remove peel from peaches.
Slice peaches into thick wedges and place in a large bowl.
Add lemon zest, fresh lemon juice, flour, and sugar.
Mix until well combined and gently stir in blueberries.
Let mixture sit for 5 minutes, then spoon into individual ramekins.
To make the crumble, combine the flour, sugar, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon, and butter in the bowl of an electric mixer.
Mix on low speed until the butter is the size of peas.
Rub the mixture with your fingertips until it is in big crumbles, and sprinkle evenly over fruit.
Place the ramekins on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper and bake for 35-40 minutes, until the tops are browned and crisp and the juices are bubbly.

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
I was going to be good and only eat half…
but…
I had no self control… I had to finish it!

Delicious!
