Peach & Mission Fig Crisp

Peaches are so sweet, juicy and cheap right now! I love biting into one and letting the juice drip down my chin. I’m making Peach & Mission Fig Crisp. I’ve used Anne Burrell’s recipe as my starting point.

Start by preheating your oven to 350.
I’ve cleaned and cut 5 large Peaches into good size pieces, She uses Golden Raisins, which would work fine. However I love, love, love Mission Figs! I’ve cut into 1/3’s an 8 oz package of Mission Figs. Place the Peaches and Mission Figs in a large mix bowl. Sprinkle over top the Zest and Juice of one Lemon (about 2 Tbsp. Juice), I’ve used 4 Tbsp. of Flour instead of 3, 1/4 cup Brown Sugar, 2 Tbsp of Sugar and a pinch of Salt and 1 Tsp. of Vanilla Extract. Mix together until all fruit pieces are coated. Set aside while you make the Topping/ Crust.

Peace and Mission Fig Mixture

Most recipes for ‘Crisp’ have you sprinkle the Topping over the Fruit. I have always liked my Crisp with a bottom crust. So I double the recipe for the Topping and use 1/2 as a bottom! I live in San Francisco where everything/ one is versatile!

Melt 1 1/4 cup Butter. Put into a large mix bowl. Add 2 1/2 cups Flour, 1 cup Brown Sugar, 1/8 Tsp. Salt and Rolled Oats. Anne’s recipe calls for an additional 1 cup of Sugar I try to use less Sugar in everything I make. So instead of Adding 2 1/2 cups Rolled Oats, I omit the additional Sugar and use 3 1/2 cups Rolled Oats. I do this because you need to have the same amount of dry ingredients as the original recipe calls for. Now mix the Rolled Oat mixture together using you fingers until it forms ‘Pea’ size pieces. You may need to add a little Water to get the desired consistency.

Butter a 9 x 13 glass pan. Use not quite 1/2 of the Oatmeal Mixture. Press down with fingers until crust covers the bottom of your pan. Place in 350 oven for about 5 minutes. This sets the bottom crust and helps keep it crisp. Remove from oven and put your Peach and Mission Fig Mixture onto the bottom crust. Use a spoon to make sure the filling is evenly distributed. Now using your fingers, sprinkle the remaining Oatmeal Mixture over the filling. Pat down lightly with your fingers. Place in oven and bake 35 to 45 minutes, until top is Beautifully Golden-ish Brown! Let cool a little before serving, either as is or with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream!
