Harvest-Time Gluten Free Fruit Crisp

Peaches on a table.

This delightfully sweet yet light dessert is the perfect way to end a late summer backyard barbeque or take to a Labor Day get-together without overindulging. Any combination of fresh seasonal apples, berries, cherries, pears, or peaches can be used, taking advantage of the fruits’ natural sweetness. My favorite combinations are apple (Honey Crisp or Granny Smith are good baking apples) with blackberries, pear with blueberries, or peaches with raspberries.
