Sweeten Your Summer with Crisps and Cobblers

Disclosure: I am a huge fan of real food. Not all of the recipes I use are always the healthiest … and they’re not sensitive to dietary restrictions. But they include real ingredients.

One of my (many) favorite things about summer is fresh produce. There’s nothing tastier than a fruit or veggie right out of your garden – but if the fresh produce doesn’t come straight from my garden, I love the taste of fresh, local produce.

This is the time of year I pile cherries and peaches into my grocery cart. While my family loves to gobble the sweet, seasonal fruit, I always buy more than we can possibly snack on and I make my favorite summertime desserts: crisps and cobblers.

To me, summer’s not quite complete without hot peach cobbler made from scratch. (I absolutely love, love, love Paula Deen’s recipe. But be warned … it includes plenty of butter, sugar and flour.)

Whenever I buy cherries, the tasty fruit seems to be perfect in a crisp. This summer I’ve created a cherry crisp recipe that tastes delicious when served right out of the oven with some vanilla ice cream.
