Here’s a recipe for a quick and easy crisp that can be used with a variety of fruit. It works well with everything from apples and peaches to berries.
Since I love raspberries (and it was what I had at the 11th hour when I decided to throw this together) that is what I am featuring today.
3 cups of raspberries (you can use any type of berry or fruit)
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon corn starch
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup butter – softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix corn starch and granulated sugar with berries. Let rest for about 10 minutes. I mix this right in the baking dish – using a square 8-inch pan. While the berries are doing their thing, mix the remaining ingredients together with a pastry blender, food processor or a fork. You want the mixture to have a crumbly texture. Sprinkle on the berries and bake until fruit bubbles and topping is a golden brown.
Serve warm with ice cream or whipped topping.
