Tips to make blueberry peach crisp

  • Frozen fruits: You can use fresh or frozen blueberries and peach for this recipe. This time, I used frozen blueberries and fresh peaches.
  • Can you freeze this crisp? Yes! Freeze it unbaked and when you’re ready to eat, bake at 350F/175C for about 1 hour or until hot and bubbling. If it starts to brown too much before it’s ready, cover with tin foil.
  • You can also freeze cooked leftovers in portions and reheat in the microwave for 1 minute or so.
  • Can you make it ahead? Yes, you can prepare it up to two days ahead. Since the topping is made with nuts, it will stay crisp! Store in the fridge, and reheat before serving.
  • Fruit variations: It would work well with other types of berries, mangos, apples, pears…
