A favourite dessert growing up was crisp. In our house, the most common was berries and rhubarb, or apple. YUM!! We always had rhubarb in the garden, or in the freezer, so it was easy. I must say... I miss having rhubarb on hand (and only really clued in that you could buy it at the grocery store the other day.... guess I'm so used to having it on hand).
This week we made my mom's crisp recipe, but we did a strawberry apple crisp. Upon getting the recipe from my mom, I found out it was actually another relative's recipe.
Fruit of choice
1/2 cup quick oats
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 butter or marg.
Cut up your fruit of choice and lay in the bottom of a baking tray (9x9 or 9x13).
Mix up the topping and sprinkle over top. You'll need to double for the 9x13 pan.
Bake at 350 until it gets bubbly, topping is golden brown (30-40 minutes).
I love adding more spices, often will add more cinnamon, nutmeg or cloves, depending on what the fruit is.
Some favourite fruits used were, peach, strawberry rhubarb, apple, and mixed berry.
Best served warm with vanilla ice cream! We used cookies and cream ice cream this time around, since we were out of vanilla.
