Nana's Peach-apple Crisp

Filed under: Baked Goods - Cobbler, Dessert, Fruits - Apples, Fruits - Peaches.

You can really use any kind of fresh or frozen fruit, canned fruit, or pie filling and this works well. We just really like the combination of apples and peaches.

Canned fruit and pie filling don't need to be dredged in flour.

Let frozen fruit

6 Apples or 8 Peaches or any combination (peeled, pitted, cored, sliced)
2/3 Cup light brown sugar
2/3 Cup graham crumbs
2/3 Cup self-rising flour
1 stick of butter, melted (1/2 cup) *Not margarine!
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp ginger
Optional: 1/2 cup chopped nuts, or raisins, or dried cranberries, or fresh blueberries

Grease and flour pan (or pans). Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

If you're using fresh apples, put them in a microwavable dish and toss with 1/2 cup of water and 2 tablespoons of orange juice. Cover (with a plate, or plastic wrap) and microwave for 3 minutes. If your peaches are a bit hard, do this step with them. Drain completely.

Toss fruit in 1/4 cup of the flour. Evenly distribute in pan (or pans). Tuck in any optional items.

Stir together all the dry ingredients until well blended, pour in melted butter and mix (preferably by hand) until completely incorporated. Mixture will be mealy. That's good.

Spread topping evenly over fruit, pat down, and bake 30 minutes or until the top is bubbly and crisp.
