Apple Berry Crisp
3 cups sliced and peeled cooking apples
2 cups mixed berries (I used a frozen mix of blueberries, blackberries and raspberries)
2 tbsp granulated sugar
2 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/3 cup melted butter or margarine
Place apples and berries in baking dish. Mix together 2 tbsp sugar and 2 tbsp flour. Sprinkle over fruit. For topping, combine in a medium bowl the remaining ingredients. Sprinkle over fruit.
Bake at 375F for 35 minutes or until fruit is tender and topped is golden.
Serve with ice cream (optional).
This is one of my favourite desserts. It's quick and easy, and it's fairly healthy as far as desserts go. We had this for dessert after our roast beef dinner (see previous post) and it went fast. I'm lucky I even managed to get a picture of it! You can change the fruit in this recipe to whatever you prefer or happen to have on hand at the time. I also enjoy just plain apple crisp (omit the 2 tbsp of flour), or rhubarb-strawberry is another favourite of mine.
