PEACH RASPBERRY CRUMBLE

Peach-Raspberry Crumble

A delicious late summer classic combination of peaches and raspberries that is great served warm with vanilla ice cream.
Baking the crumb topping separately in this recipe helps to prevent it from getting soggy.
This recipe is also very good using 4 cups blueberries and 3 cups rhubarb in place of the peaches and raspberries.
