Life really should be more like peaches and cream.  In other words they are a beautiful marriage of ingredients that taste too good to be true. My easy Summer Peach Crisp is filled with fresh, juicy peaches and a yummy crisp topping. Just don’t forget the ice-cream!  This recipe is so versatile you can even substitute for other fruits depending on what is in season.   You can use canned fruits if you do not have access to fresh ones.  I often eat the crispy topping before it even makes it on the peach filling.  This is the ultimate summer dessert.  Enjoy!
