It is amazing what smells can do. The smell of pine trees evokes memories of Christmas tree hunting. The smell of tomatoes on the vine will always remind me of summers in my moms backyard. The smell of the roasting pork from the sandwich shop down the street makes my stomach rumble. And apparently the smell of fresh peaches makes me stop in my tracks at the grocery store, pick up a few and rush home to make raspberry peach crisp.
One of the reasons that I shy away from baking desserts most of the time is the fact that some of them are pretty complicated. But this raspberry peach crisp is just the opposite of that. I toss freshly sliced peaches and raspberries with sugar and a little flour. Next I top them with a crumb topping and pop it in the oven until the fruit is bubbly and the crumb topping is slightly golden.
