Peach Crumble with Georgia Blueberries

Written by Denise Sawyer on Wednesday, June 06, 2012.

For these events I go all out, but during the week I don’t have extra time to make a big fuss. I do, however, believe it is important to feed my family home-cooked meals as often as I can, and at our house that means cooking dinner at home five to seven nights a week. Most of the time the meals I make are from scratch, but since I work outside of the home a few days of the week, most of those meals also go from fridge and pantry to kitchen table in 30 to 45 minutes.  I don’t usually make dessert - that is left for special occasions or weekends.  But, sometimes if I have a little extra time, I whip together a quick dessert for my sweet little family.

My go-to dessert is one that is not too high in calories and takes only moments to put together: a fruit crumble.  I’ve lived in Georgia all my life and cobblers are a way of life around here - a great country, soul-warming type of dessert.  I still love cobbler, but I’ve adapted it a bit to include oats and less sugar so that it is more of a crumble, and relatively healthy as far as dessert is concerned.

I start with a fruit that is in season, like Georgia peaches but throwing in a cup of Georgia Blueberries is my secret weapon.  The blueberries bump up the nutrition, adding more antioxidants and fiber.  They also add a whole other layer of flavor to the delicious dish.  Here’s how I make it:

Peach Crumble with Georgia Blueberries
(Note: You can use other types of fruit besides peaches; I usually use what ever fruit is in season).

¼ cup of brown sugar
1 tbsp corn starch
3 peaches, sliced
1 cup Georgia Blueberries
½ cup all purpose flour
½ cup old fashioned oats
¼ stick of real butter, cold

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

In the pan you intend to bake in, place all the fruit, sugar, and corn starch and carefully stir so the fruit is coated.

In a separate bowl, cut the butter into the flour until it resembles peas.  Stir in the oats.  Sprinkle this mixture over the fruit mixture.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes.
