Are you looking for a simple dessert that reminds you of summer? This Crock Pot Peach-Berry Crisp is a flavorful way to indulge in the flavors of summer any time of year!
This Crock Pot Peach-Berry Crisp is the third of the desserts from the new 101 Blue Ribbon Dessert Recipes by Gooseberry Patch (Thanks for sending me a copy GP!) that I made in my 3-Pot Buffet Slow Cooker for my girls’ night the other night. And while the Chocolate Cobbler was the favorite of my girls and the Cherry Pineapple Dump Cake was the favorite of my kiddo, this Crock Pot Peach-Berry Crisp was my hubby’s favorite.
Crock Pot Peach Berry Crisp
Like the other two desserts, we converted this recipe to a slow cooker recipe from the original in the cookbook. Other changes? I didn’t peel my peaches– gasp! I started to, but then I cut myself and it hampered my peeling abilities, so I figured since I don’t peel my apples for my apple crisp, I could totally try not peeling my peaches. The result? Didn’t notice AT ALL. So I am DONE peeling peaches for crisps in the future… for the sake of time and my fingers ;).
The other change? I totally cheated on the topping. Normally I would have just whipped it up. But since I was making three different desserts (and I had that incident with the knife and all) I decided to just grab a box of crisp topping and used it. No worries, I will give you the recipe to make the topping from scratch if you would like 😉
Slow Cooker Recommendations
I made this dish in my 3-Pot Buffet Slow Cooker which has 2.5 quart crocks. If you want to make it in a bigger slow cooker, I would highly recommend watching your time as it will likely take less time in a 4 qt and far less time in a 5-6 qt. You could also consider doubling the recipe, but regardless, I would recommend watching your time closely the first time because all slow cookers cook differently depending on age, shape, size and where the moon is currently located ;).
