We often think of crisps and crumbles as winter desserts, but please don’t pigeon-hole them! This combination of sweet nectarines and tart raspberries, subtly flavoured with rosewater, topped with a pistachio ‘crisp’ topping and served with honey-flavoured yoghurt is a sublime summer dessert. Any leftovers are good for breakfast!

Cook's notes

Oven temperatures are for conventional; if using fan-forced (convection), reduce the temperature by 20˚C. | We use Australian tablespoons and cups: 1 teaspoon equals 5 ml; 1 tablespoon equals 20 ml; 1 cup equals 250 ml. | All herbs are fresh (unless specified) and cups are lightly packed. | All vegetables are medium size and peeled, unless specified. | All eggs are 55-60 g, unless specified.

Instructions

Preheat oven to 190°C (170°C fan-forced).

To make the pistachio topping, combine the flour, sugar and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Use your fingertips to rub in the butter until the mixture begins to resemble coarse breadcrumbs. Stir in the pistachios.

Halve the nectarines and remove the stones. Cut each half into 4 wedges. Combine with the sugar, rosewater and flour and toss to combine. Add the raspberries and toss gently to combine evenly. Divide the fruit mixture evenly among 6 x 250 ml (1 cup) ramekins or ovenproof dishes. Sprinkle the pistachio crisp topping over the fruit to cover.

Bake in preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until the fruit is tender when pierced with a skewer and the topping is crisp and golden.

Meanwhile, to make the honey yoghurt, stir the yoghurt and honey in a medium bowl until combined. Cover and refrigerate until required.

Serve the crisp warm or at room temperature with the honey yoghurt.
