After what seemed like the longest January in history, February is finally here! It’s a month of family, friendship and love! The slower pace is a welcomed breath of fresh air as the hustle & bustle of January comes to an end, making way for time with loved ones.
While “J” and I don’t typically partake in gift-giving on Valentine’s Day (although I will never turn away a box of chocolates or a dozen roses), we always make an effort to go out for dinner. It’s become one of the traditions I really look forward too! One of our favourite restaurants, The Puddicomb House, hosts an annual Valentine’s Day 4-Course Menu… and it’s a must when the 14th rolls around!
Of course, sweets are my thing, so I always whip up an extra dessert for after dinner (you can never have too many desserts, right?).
While this might not be a traditional Valentine’s Day dessert (typically rich chocolate, strawberries, and wine are on the menu), I love how the sweetness of the fruit shine through the crunchiness of the crisp, crumble topping! Not to mention this dish is quick to prepare… who doesn’t love a dessert that’s ready to pop in the oven in 10 minutes?
So as you decorate the house, fill out cards, and thoughtfully pick gifts, consider putting this tasty treat on your Valentine’s Day menu!
This easy to make crisp is exactly what I look for in a Valentine’s Day dessert! The sweet peaches pair perfectly with the fresh raspberries, the crisp oat topping adds just the right amount of crunch and the scoops of vanilla ice cream melt oh-so-nicely overtop! Love at first bite!
2 cups canned peaches, sliced
1 cup fresh raspberries
2 tbsp sugar
3/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 cup butter, melted
Icing sugar for sprinkling (optional)
2–4 scoops of vanilla ice cream
- Preheat oven to 350ºF. Spray 9-inch pie plate (or 9×9 inch pan) with non-stick spray.
- In a medium bowl toss peaches and raspberries with sugar. Pour filling into pie plate.
- In a medium bowl combine oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and melted butter. Mixture should come together into a dry crumble; mixture should not be wet.
- Cover the fruit evenly with crumble oat topping.
- Bake 35-40 minutes or until crumble is golden brown and crisp.
- Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before sprinkling with icing sugar and serving with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
