Raspberry-Peach Toasted Almond Crisp

Crustless, crumb-capped fruit crisp is a go-to summer dessert. Toasted almonds make this topping extra crunchy, and the raspberry-peach filling is a nice, juicy contrast. If you want to really amplify this dessert, add a dollop of whipped cream or peach, raspberry or vanilla ice cream.

FILLING

5 cups sliced peeled peaches, (1 1/4 inches thick) (about 2 1/2 lb.)*
3 tablespoons sugar
1 to 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour (depending on juiciness of peaches)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 (6-oz.) container fresh raspberries (1 1/2 cups)

TOPPING

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled, cut-up
1 cup slivered almonds, toasted**

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Coat 11x7-inch glass or ceramic baking dish with cooking spray.

2. Combine all of the filling ingredients, except raspberries, in large bowl, stirring gently to coat. Arrange in baking dish; sprinkle with raspberries.

3. Beat 1/2 cup flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in large bowl at low speed. Add butter; beat until coarse crumbs form. Stir in almonds. Sprinkle over filling, squeezing to form clumps.

4. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until lightly browned and edges are bubbling. Cool on wire rack 30 minutes; serve warm.
