Crisps, crumbles, cobblers, and the like will never beat out a layer cake in the looks department, but I'll choose the former over the latter nine times out of 10. Not only do these rustic fruit desserts require far less effort to bake up — particularly crucial during lazy Summer months — but they also tend to win on the taste front, provided your fruit is of the stellar sort.
This recipe is no exception. As it cooks, the peaches and berries bubble away until exiting the oven a more concentrated, intense version of themselves. Add to the mix a blanket of tender, sugar-crusted biscuits, and the combination is nearly impossible to beat. Even better, leftovers (if you have any) can be repurposed as an indulgent breakfast when served with a sizable dollop of plain yogurt.
