Blackberry Peach Crisp

I love to make things that don't require exact measurements, or even recipes. I have made apple crisp so many times that I have the method down pretty well.

I wanted to make peach crisp for Emmy this morning, but I only had three teeny tiny peaches, so I decided to throw in some blackberries too

It was perfect... the peaches were sweet and the berries were just a little tangy. Basically I just threw in the three peaches cut up and a handful or two of black berries, no stirring required here. Then in another bowl, I added a half a stick of soft butter, maybe a half a cup of flour and oatmeal, then a third a cup of sugar. I would of preferred brown sugar, but I didn't have any. I added a dash or two of cinnamon and a splash of vanilla (homemade, maybe I'll post that later too). I just mixed it with my hands to incorporate the butter until the mix is very crumbly. I baked it for about 4o minutes at 35o and presto:

It was so good. Perfect with some whipped cream or even ice cream if you're into that sort of thing.
