This Cinnamon Maple Brown Butter Blackberry Peach Crisp is overflowing with sweet summer peaches, blackberries, and a double amount of that maple butter cookie-crisp on top. This easy fruit crisp is the perfect way to enjoy the summertime fruit you have on hand. The peaches and blackberries are juicy, while the topping is swirled with notes of brown butter, sweetened with warming maple and brown sugar, and perfectly crisp. Top with vanilla ice cream for the best peachy, berry-filled dessert to kick off summer!

And just like that, we’ve entered into the summer fruit season. And I, for one, am so excited about it. I know it’s a little early in the peach season, especially if you’re in the south, but around here the peaches and berries have officially arrived at the grocery store and I couldn’t resist picking up a few bushels full.

Early in the peach season is really when I love to bake with peaches the most. Right now, they’re not at their sweetest, so I find that baking with them is the perfect thing to do. Especially since we’re already adding sugar…not to mention that baking them draws out their sweetness even more.

When I saw I had a fridge full of peaches, I knew I wanted to bake with them this week. I have a couple of peach cobbler recipes, but not many crisp recipes, so that pretty much answered that.

A peach crisp it was!

The blackberries were added simply because Asher and I were just saying how much we LOVE blackberries. To me, the combination of peaches and roasted blackberries is such a delicious one.

The details are pretty easy

This is a quick three-step process. Start with the fruit. Fresh peach and blackberries tossed together with brown sugar and vanilla. Many people will add in some kind of citrus for a little acidity, but I wanted to keep this crisp extra sweet and rich, so I went the vanilla route.

Add a touch of cornstarch to create a nice thick and juicy sauce.

The secret here is the brown sugar, butter, sweet peaches, and berries. The peaches bake down and create the most incredible caramel-like sauce.

Even without the crisp topping, the peaches and baked blackberries alone are simply delish. But of course, that crisp topping just adds that extra special touch.

That crisp topping?

It’s very important, and it took me a while to get just right. I really really wanted it to be more cookie-like with a very nice crunch and not soggy in any way.

I find that a lot of crisp toppings can be a little cakey and soggy, so my goal was to avoid sogginess. The topping consists of flour, oats, cinnamon, brown sugar…and yup, butter. Peaches can use a little extra buttery love every now and then, you know?

Sprinkle the crumble over the fruit, bake, and about an hour later you’ll have the perfect summer fruit crisp. The topping is so much like a crisp brown sugar cookie…so delicious. The cinnamon maple butter that’s drizzled over top halfway through cooking is the real secret. It caramelizes the top and makes a crisp that is truly sweet, buttery, and CRISP.

What I love so much about a recipe like this is that you can really use whatever fruit you have on hand. I love using the mix of sweet peaches and blackberries. But you can certainly use other stone fruits. You can even go super simple and just use your favorite berry. It’s going to be juicy and delicious no matter what combo…or lack of combo…you choose.

The one thing you must do is serve this warm right out of the oven, while the juices are bubbling up, and everything is smelling incredible.

Lastly, make sure you add ice cream! A must with almost any fruit-based dessert, but especially a crisp, and especially during the summer.

This is a classic summertime dessert that really should be happening on a weekly basis all summer long!

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. 
    2. In a large bowl, toss together peaches, blackberries, brown sugar, 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon (use 2 tsp for a thicker filling) cornstarch, and vanilla. Spread the fruit out into a 10-12 inch baking dish or cast iron skillet. 
    3. To make the topping, combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl. Add 8 tablespoons butter and cut the butter into the dry ingredients using a fork or pastry cutter. Sprinkle over the fruit. Cover with foil and bake 30 minutes. 
    4, Meanwhile, add 4 tablespoons butter to a small pot and set over medium heat. Allow the butter to brown lightly until it smells toasted, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in the maple syrup, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Remove the crisp from the oven, remove the foil, and drizzle the maple butter over the crisp. Bake, uncovered another 25 to 30 minutes. 
    5. Let cool slightly, then serve with ice cream.

    1. Hey Laura,
      Happy Sunday! I am thrilled that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks a lot for giving it a try! xTieghan

  8. One other question. Could I bake this and set it in the fridge for the next day as a cold/room temperature crisp? Or will the fruit be too soggy?

    1. Hey Desiree,
      I would assemble the entire crisp up until the point of baking, keep covered in the fridge, and then bake when you are ready to serve. I hope the recipe turns out amazing for you. Please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

    1. Hey Ellen,
      I just use a pinch of salt. I hope you enjoy this recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

  9. Hi Tieghan,
    In step 3 & 4 you mention adding salt but the amount is not shown in step 3. Step 4 you mention a pinch so that is fine.

    1. Hey there,
      You will use a pinch each time:) I hope you love this recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

  10. This looks delicious! I was just wondering. Can I substitute black berries with another fruit? Say blueberries?

    1. Hey Desiree,
      Sure, blueberries would be great here! I hope the recipe turns out amazing for you. Please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

    Yummers! Used the last peaches & a couple nectarines still in my fridge plus blueberries. I sliced the fruit quite thin which was good. My 9 inch pie plate would have overflowed so I divided it among 2 pie plates. So good heated a touch and served with ice cream. Not overly sweet.
    Rave reviews from three generations of my family. Thanks once again Tieghan!!

    1. Hey Reva,
      Awesome! So so glad to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks for making it! xxTieghan

    Amazing. Everyone raved about this. I made a little extra topping but otherwise kept to the recipe.
    I just microwaved it for a couple minutes before serving to warm it up. Flavor was sooooo good!

    I am having a dinner party on Friday and I would like to make this ahead of time. Could I re-warm the dish?

    1. Hey Heide,
      I think this is best served fresh, I would assemble and have it ready to go and then bake fresh when you are ready to serve. I hope the recipe turns out amazing for you. Please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

      1. I also would like to bring this dish to a dinner party, but will be coming in from out of town. Would be a lot easier to have it already assembled, but if truly best warm and taking the extra step with the butter and maple syrup, this just might not be the dish to bring! 🙁

        1. Hey Allie,
          You can of course do whatever you like and make ahead, but I think this is best served warm from the oven:)

  17. 5 stars
    Thank you SOOOO much for this recipe!!!! It is SOOO easy and delicious!!! I added just a pinch of nutmeg to the topping mixture, and used Pam nonstick spray in the baking dish. Those were the only changes I made.

    So good!!!

    1. Hey Chez,
      Love to hear this! Thanks so much for giving the recipe a try, I am so glad it was enjoyed! xTieghan

  18. Can’t wait to make this! Have tons of peaches from The Peach Truck! Quick q; how much salt in the topping? Just a pinch? It’s not listed in ingredients but in the instructions for both topping and the brown butter syrup. Thanks!!!

    1. Hey Jillian,
      Yes, just a pinch! Enjoy those peaches! I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

        1. Hey Jillian,

    1. Hey Lisa,
      Love to hear this! Thanks so much for giving the recipe a try, I am so glad it was enjoyed! xTieghan

  19. Family is not a fan of blackberries or maple syrup 😕 Possibly sub blueberries? And thoughts about omitting the maple syrup…?

    1. Hey Lisa,
      Any fruit you like will work just fine here, you can use honey in place of the maple syrup. I hope you enjoy the recipe, please let m know if you give it a try! xTieghan

    1. Hey there,
      You bet! I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

  20. Just wondering if substituting honey for the maple syrup would work well,just a personal preference

    1. Hey Pat,
      Yes, that will definitely work. I hope the recipe turns out amazing for you. Please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

  21. Would you modify the recipe anyway such as the cooking time if you made it in cocottes or ramekins?

    1. Hey Carolyn,
      You would just need to reduce your baking time based on the size of your ramekins. I hope the recipe turns out amazing for you, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

    I made this last night and it was the dessert I have ever tasted. My family raved about it.(I left the skin on the peaches.)
    I do not like chocolate so this was the perfect dessert to start the summer. Yummy !

    1. Hey Katie,
      Love to hear this! Thanks so much for giving the recipe a try, I am so glad it was enjoyed! xTieghan

  23. Wow this looks SOOO GOOD! Definitely going to make it! If I don’t have blackberries what would you recommend as a good substitute? Raspberries?

    1. Hey there,
      Thanks! Any berry you enjoy will work well here. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

  24. This looks delicious! I noticed that your picture shows unpeeled peaches and you didn’t say to peel them in the instructions. I’ve never made a cobbler or crisp with the peels left on. Is my assumption correct, and does it come out ok without peeling them?

    1. Hey Julie,
      I left the peel on mine, but if you would like to peel yours that works to! I hope you enjoy this recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

  25. Hello,
    Can l see oat meal instead of all purpose flour even though you do have some already in it?
    Regards, Diana

    1. Hey Diana,
      So sorry I am not understanding your question. The recipe calls for both oatmeal and all purpose flour. Please let me know how I can help! xTieghan

    1. Hey there,
      No, that would not be necessary, you can follow the recipe as is. I hope you enjoy the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions. xTieghan

    It looks delicious! I wanted to ask, can I swap blackberries for another berry, such as raspberries? My boyfriend is allergic to blackberries but this looks right up his alley!

    1. Hey Gabriella,
      Thanks! Sure, any berry you like will work well here. I hope you enjoy the recipe, please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

        1. Hey Gabriella,
          Wonderful! I am thrilled to hear that this recipe was enjoyed. Thanks a bunch for giving it a try! xTieghan

    1. Hey Lorrie,
      You bet, no need to thaw them! I hope the recipe turns out amazing for you, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

    1. Hey Cathy,
      I would probably use GF flour. I hope the recipe turns out amazing for you, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

    1. Hey Katie,
      Honestly, that is personal preference. I did not as it is one extra step and feel the skin adds extra flavor, but if you want to peel them that is totally fine too. I hope the recipe turns out amazing for you. Please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

  27. I cannot wait to try this, our garden is bursting with peaches and blackberries that will be ready for harvest in about a month!!

    1. Thanks Rita! I hope you love this recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

    Hey Tieghan!
    I absolutely love this recipe! The warming brown butter with the summery peaches and blackberries is such a lovely combination. Thank you for trying to keep it crisp!😅 I agree too many crisps seem soggy and like sugary oatmeal is on top (not an oatmeal cookie crisp topping like yours!). I hope you’re enjoying the summer days! 🙂 Do you have any summer bucket list plans (besides Cabo😉)? Looking forward to tomorrow’s post!

    1. Hey Kristin,
      Fantastic! I am thrilled that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks a bunch for giving it a try! So far, Cabo is the only summer plan on my list:) xxTieghan

  29. I will have to make this as soon as I can get some decent peaches! But I don’t love oats in a crisp topping. Can I just leave them out, or do I need to add more flour? Thanks!

    1. Hey Adrienne,
      Thanks so much! Yes, you will probably need to use some more flour in place of the oats. I hope this recipe turns out amazing for you. Please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

  30. YUM!!! I never thought of blackberry and peach together. I have seen blueberry and peach. This looks so delicious. Can’t wait until late July to drive to SC for a truck load of peaches. We pick up for several people.

    1. Thanks so much Charlotte! I hope you love this recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

  31. This looks delicious! How about using frozen blackberries? I’ve still got a ton in the freezer from last year.

    1. Thanks so much Laura! Yes, those will work well here! I hope you enjoy this recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan
