Any Fruit Crisp

fruit crisp3

This has to be the easiest dessert to throw together.

Use whatever fruit you have on hand. Berries, apples, peaches, plums. They all work well.

Last night I used whatever was ripe on the counter.
2 nectarines and 8 luscious figs. I sliced them up with the skins left on.

Lay the cut up fruit in a small oval casserole or baking dish.



For the topping: (measurements are approximate)

3 tbsp light brown sugar
3 tbsp white sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup oats
handful of sliced almonds
1 tsp cinnamon
4 tbsp melted butter

Pour the melted butter over the dry ingredients and mash with 2 forks until you get a nice crumbly topping.




Pour over the fruit in the casserole and pat down. Bake for 35 minutes at 350F until bubbling.

Serve with ice cream or on its own! The perfect summer dessert!



Enjoy!

Fruit crisps are my favorite fast dessert. I love how the oatmeal gives such great texture to this.
Oh. I have fresh figs from Whole Foods. Finally! I'm making something special... at least, I hope I am. We shall see how it turns out. Think "dessert".

I can see pear crisp in the near future.

You can't go wrong with a crisp. My sister used to ask for me to make it all the time when we were growing up. Now that we are adults, she still tells me she hasn't found anything that lives up to my crisps. I think it's cute you called this recipe an Any Fruit Crisp. Looking at the pictures...it really was any fruit. :)
