This time of year, we love nothing more than putting to work all of the tart-sweet gems of summer, aka stone fruits. We put cherries, plums, apricots, peaches, and any other ripe fruit into as many dishes as we can before fall sets in. And because we like to keep our entertaining routine as low key as possible, we can't help but not love the crisp, one of the dishes that best epitomizes relaxed summer entertaining and showcases the peak of stone fruit season.
We keep our crisps simple, leveraging our Miss Jones Organic Vanilla Cake Mix, butter, milk, fruit, and one cast iron skillet. It only takes these five items (well, 6 if you include the "optional" ice cream) and 30 minutes before you are in absolute tart-sweet bliss. —Miss Jones Baking Co.
