Fresh Frozen, Canned - you can use any kind of fruit for this easy Blueberry Peach Crisp. The topping on this dish is pretty scant..because this is a summer dessert and I personally hate eating super heavy desserts when the sun is trying to melt me. If you like a thick topping on your crisps, double up the topping. If you don't have sliced almonds in the pantry, try pecans instead.
