fruit crisp

This super yummy recipe is derived from an Apricot Crisp recipe which I found at The Smitten Kitchen. I altered it to work with other fruits. Pear would be really good when they come into season.

Awesome Fruit Crisp

Combine in a pretty baking dish:
About 1 pound of Fruit ~ a mixture of fresh and canned is fine
Sugar to taste ~ you just want to take the tart off, nothing more
1 T flour ~ add a bit more if working with an especially juicy fruit
1 t Spice (nutmeg, cinnamon, etc.) or Extract (vanilla, almond, etc.)

Combine in bowl:
½ to 1 stick butter, melted
6 T pearl sugar
½ C whole oats, toasted
¼ C white flour
¼ C whole wheat flour
½ t salt
3 T sliced almonds

Pour this over the fruit.

Bake at 350 F for about 35 minutes.

This sounds great. We have some mango we got from a neighbor, maybe we'll have to do it with a tropical twist. I'll let you know how it turns out. Thanks!

Sounds pretty good! This time of year I would definitely use fresh fruit.
