Actually, we call peach crisp a cobbler around here just because we can.
Technically a cobbler has a biscuit or pastry crust and a crisp has a streusel crust. The streusel all kind of melts together and becomes a crispy topping for whatever ripe fruit you put under it.
Peaches are my favorite. There is just something about the way a ripe peach interacts with the brown sugar and butter in the streusel that is decadent. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and………….
In this case I didn’t have enough peaches and so a grabbed a couple of ripe mangoes that I had on the counter. The flavors are similar and I think the super sweet mango actually kind of enhances the peaches. You can make it with part mango, all mango, or all peaches – it will still be amazing.
