food styling/Sheryl Julian and Janine Sciarappa; Essdras M Suarez/Globe Staff

Makes one 9½-inch deep dish pie

Debbi Dymek of Millbury makes this favorite summer crisp using all local fruits — peaches, nectarines, cherries, raspberries, blackberries, or blueberries. The nubby topping is spread over the fruit to create a sweet, crunchy crust-like cover. Serve the crisp with a drizzle of fresh cream or ice cream.

FILLING

Butter (for the dish)
8peaches, pitted and thickly sliced
cups cherries, pitted
Juice of ½ lemon
¼cup flour
1cup granulated sugar
¼teaspoon salt

1. Set the oven at 350 degrees. Butter a 9½-inch deep ceramic or glass baking dish.

2. In a bowl combine the peaches, cherries, and lemon juice.

3. In another bowl whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, and salt. Add the flour mixture to the fruit and toss together until all the fruit is coated. Tip the fruit into the dish.
