This strawberry and peach crumble is proof that sometimes you just have to follow your nose!  The other day I walked into my local grocery store and smelled peaches.  The sweet smell of peaches brought to mind so many decadent desserts that I just had to buy a few.  I got them home and immediately pulled out the 1916 cookbook that I love to use for inspiration.  Quickly my finger scanned the index for peaches and found several recipes that I am sure would be great!  The index was full of cobblers, pies, and cakes galore.  Problem was, I didn’t have enough peaches for a whole pie so, I decided to make a crumble (with a twist).  Luckily, I had a carton of strawberries in the fridge to go along with the peaches. I combined the two and created a beautiful concoction of sweet and tart!  When it came out of the oven bubbly and hot, I added a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top! It is now one of my favorite desserts!
