Peach Blackberry Crumble

Yesterday I set out to make peach crumble.    Peach season is on here in NH, and I'd seen Cyndy's awesome review & pics of the Southern Apple Crumble and thought it would be great with the half dozen peaches I'd picked up.    Jake helped me, peel and prep, but I wanted to fill an 11x7 pan I had, and there just weren't enough.   I decided to add a pint of HUGE but tart blackberries we'd gotten at the farm as well.     This is a super simple recipe, love the use of the oatmeal cookie packet for the topping.    Jake finished his bowl and then tipped it up to drink all the syrupy goodness that was left  :) 
Next time I'd make it in my round or oblong corningware, or double up the fruit.   Yes, there will be a next time.   Many, many next times.   Apple season is coming up, along with pears, plus I think this would be great with blueberries too.
