Blackberries and peaches are in season!  I bought some of each over the weekend and I’ve been scheming on what I would do with them.  I finally decided on pie that turns out to be part cobbler, part crumble with a little bit of pie.

With fruit that’s so fresh and delicious, just know that you won’t be able to cut this dish into nice pretty slices…just get a big ‘ol spoon and scoop some up, making sure to grab some of the crunchy crust.  This is one easy, delicious dessert that’s worthy of any of the fresh fruits of summer

2 fresh peaches – peeled and sliced
1/4 cup sugar
1 prepared pie crust
