Pear Walnut Crisp | completelydelicious.com

Last week I was gifted these gorgeous pears from Harry and David. I couldn’t decide what to do with them— do I eat them all or use them to bake something fun? It’s a battle I face every time there’s beautiful fresh fruit in the house.

In the end we enjoyed a few just as they are and the rest went into this pear walnut crisp. They were going to be a pie but I changed my mind and made a last minute decision to bake a crisp instead. And I have no regrets! Continue Reading…

 

Peach cobbler is one of summer’s beloved desserts, and now you can enjoy it even more knowing you don’t have to heat up your kitchen to make it.

We’ve been gobbling up this summer’s peaches by the pound, mostly sliced up and served just as they are— is there anything better? I also love baking with peaches, but it’s been so hot I haven’t wanted to turn on my oven any more than necessary. Then I remembered that I could make my slow cooker do all the dirty work without heating up my kitchen.

Slow cookers aren’t just for the winter months, you know. Continue Reading…

Do you have the same fickleness when it comes to picking a favorite summer fruit as I do? Pretty much whatever is going into my mouth right at that moment is my favorite. But it all can change in the time it takes to bake a crisp.

Last week I was so in love with fresh cherries. This week, thanks to this crisp, it was blueberries.

This Sweet Potato and Cranberry Crisp is a fun twist on the classic Thanksgiving side dish, made even sweet ‘n’ saltier with a potato chip and pecan topping. Post sponsored by Kettle Brand Chips.

Sweet Potato-Cranberry Crisp

Confession: I have never put a scoop of sweet potato casserole (or candied yams, or whatever you call them) on my Thanksgiving dinner plate, ever. It’s just never seemed to belong next to my turkey and mashed potatoes. Too mushy, lackluster, or overwhelmed by marshmallows. For whatever reason, I just feel compelled to skip it.

But not this year. I’ve taken the traditional dish and turned into a Thanksgiving side I want seconds of.

The ultimate summer fruit cobbler filled with peaches, plums, cherries, blueberries and raspberries.

Ultimate Summer Fruit Cobbler

All of the credit for this fabulous summer dessert goes to a reader, Diana, who commented on a facebook question I posted asking for summer recipe requests. She replied:

“The ultimate summer fruit cobbler. Maybe peaches…blackberries. And not the shortcut one where they tell you to use bisquick- yuck! One with a real topping made from scratch. Would love to see that!”

Well here you are, Diana. This is the ultimate summer fruit cobbler, filled with all the fresh fruit and berries of the season and topped with a from-scratch (but still easy!) buttermilk cake-like crust.
