Blueberry Peach Crisp is an easy, but delicious summer dessert.  This is perfectly served alone, but even more delicious with vanilla ice cream or my honey whipped topping.  You can bake this crisp recipe in mason jars to create individual servings.

Blueberry Peach Crisp for an Easy Dessert

Years ago I created this recipe to bring to my Aunt’s house for dinner because experimentation is always good to do with family (lol).   My cousin was visiting from out-of-state with her new husband, her maid of honor and her maid of honor’s mom.  Suddenly I wasn’t just experimenting with family (lol).

I thought it would be fun to test baking my crisp recipe in individual mason jars to create personal size servings.  Thankfully the whole dessert share was a success, which lead to a magazine share and a share on my site!

 Although this recipe is filled with delicious flavor, the individual servings were part of the allure and made the display fun.  You can put these jars in a basket and bring them to the table with the whipped topping on the side so that each person can add their own, fresh, cold whipped topping.  These are perfect for entertaining!

And, clean up afterwards is easy.  Empty jars go in the dishwasher and any uneaten dessert jars simply get capped off and placed in the refrigerator.

Entertaining with kids? If it’s mid summer try my frozen honey lemonade (click here).  If it’s end of summer serve with a warmed cider mixed with mulled spice, orange slices and cinnamon sticks.

Topping it off:  I like to top off Blueberry Peach Crisp with a whipped topping or vanilla ice cream.  While a regular whipped topping is yummy, my Honey Whipped Topping is absolutely DELICIOUS and the perfect finishing touch!  The recipe link is located below the picture.
