Wonderful - somehow this delicious treat seems both rich and light at the same time, even with vanilla ice cream. And what a relief to find a Crisp recipe that doesn't call for oatmeal, which I do like okay, but just not as coarse flakes in a dessert topping. Like another reader, I'm puzzled as to how pecans could make anything seem 'tart' - maybe the ones she used had some of the interior nut membrane clinging, or perhaps the nuts were just not fresh. At any rate, almonds or walnuts would make a fine substitute for the pecans if necessary. I'm just glad to get my hands on such a versatile and quick fruit recipe. Can't wait to try it with fresh red cherries, blackberries, or apples.
This dessert is so easy to make and so absolutely delicious. It is one of those desserts that you want to inhale!
delicious summer recipe. I love crisps and keep coming back to this recipe. I have made it many times, and often add more peaches,5 or even 6 depending on their size, Love the pecans for the flavor and crunch.
Delicious and easy. I placed the pecans in my blender for a few quick pulses for smaller pieces. This made the topping super crispy and the nuts cooked more thoroughly allowing a subtle pecan taste. I would agree to use 1 cup less blueberries and add one cup more peaches. I would definitely make this again and use topping for other recipes.
This is delicious! Since our guest did not care for pecans, I used a classic crisp crust. I also used 8 oz. of blueberries and 8 oz. of blackberries. I agree the vanilla bean ice cream with it is a must.
Excellent!! Would only make this when I can get perfectly ripe peaches. Otherwise I wouldn't bother. I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out very good. I think I will use more peach and less blueberry when I make this again but that is just a matter of personal taste. The spiced pecan topping was excellent. I fail to see how the pecans could make the topping tart as stated by another reviewer.
Easy and delicious. It's even good at room temperature. (It appears that Bonams failed to take monounsaturated fats into account in the C+ nutritional rating.)
Made this with Apricots instead of peaches. Might stick to Peaches as Apricots didn't retain texture as well. Very good and easy. Increased the topping by a third my family likes the extra crunchiness. Also added rind of one lemon to the topping. Vanilla bean ice cream is a must!
This is an excellent recipe, easy and quick. I reside in Atlantic Canada where wild blueberries are still plentiful. I used chopped walnuts rather than pecans and no bitterness at all. Served the crisp with vanilla bean ice cream. This dessert was a hit with the dinner guests.
This was delicious. I had only about a cup of blueberries so I upped the number of peaches and it was still fabulous. I didn't have pecans so I substituted toasted walnuts and it made the topping crunchy. I don't think the nuts make it tart at all. It gives it a nice texture. I also liked that it's not overly sweet. Great recipe! Will make again!

I thought this was good, but next time i will use more peaches and less blueberries, its best warm with vanilla ice cream
It was a big hit with my family - delicious! Marimax
Amazing! We added blackberries to the mix and baked it all inside a store bought pie crust for more of a pie than a crisp. Other than than, we followed the recipe exactly as it was written.
I served this at 4th of July and it got rave reviews. It was very easy and fast and best of all I made it before anyone arrived and we ate it at room temperature.
This was very good. I used a pint of blueberries, since that's how they are sold locally.
Pecans make the crumb topping a bit tart. A more traditional crumb topping is much better. The recipe was very diappointing.
I loved this recipe
I would like to know the nutritional values of this dessert.
This was wonderful. So easy to make and so delicious. A big hit at the dinner party. Served with vanilla ice cream.
