When Ohio peaches come into season I make about every peach dessert possible; pies, crumbles, cobblers, and crisps. I love a good crisp because they're easy to put together and the blend of juicy fruits plus a nutty, crunchy topping is perfect with a couple scoops of ice cream. 

I used locally grown peaches, nectarines, and blueberries. To make the crisp gluten free I used King Arthur Gluten Free Multi-Purpose Flour for the topping and tapioca starch to thicken the fruit filling.

Serves 6

Recipe adapted from Cook's Country magazine, Peach Melba Crisp August/September 2012 Issue 

Step 1: Gather ingredients

You'll need:

4 lbs. fresh peaches and/or nectarines, about 8-10 medium-sized
1/4 cup (1.75 ounces) granulated sugar (if your peaches aren't ripe you may need more sugar)
1/8 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. Tapioca starch (can also use instant tapioca ground finely in a spice grinder or food processor)
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 Tbsp. Amaretto liqueur
1 cup (5 ounces) fresh blueberries

1/2 cup (2.75 ounces) King Arthur Flour Gluten Free Multi-purpose flour
