Bon Appetite!

Apple, Berry Crisp!

Written By: Chris - Oct• 30•13

I often try to include some healthy tips and/or benefits to some of the key ingredients within my dishes, but it would be a stretch to say this dessert is healthy at all.  Hey, it does give you a bunch of fruit!  And the oats, via their high fiber content, are known to help remove cholesterol from the digestive system that would otherwise end up in the bloodstream, right?  Well, let’s just call this a treat because these items blended together are just that!  I was inspired to make something warm and delicious because I was having Bills folks over for dinner, but also because I had come across some apples and mixed fruit that I had on hand in my freezer.  It’s very easy and really heavenly!  I made two dishes so that I could bring one to work to share with the team.

Ingredients:

4 Cups Apples, peeled, cored and sliced
2 Cups Mixed Berries
2 Cups Blueberries
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Sugar
2 Oranges, juice only
4 Tablespoons Flour
1 Tablespoon Corn Starch
1 Tablespoon Cinnamon
1 Tablespoon Nutmeg, grated
1 teaspoon Salt

Topping:
1 1/2 Cup Flour
1 1/2 Sticks Butter, some cold and some room temperature
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Cup Sugar
Cinnamon
1 Cup Oats

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Peel, core and chop into apples into bite sized pieces.  (or pull from the freezer and allow to thaw).  If using fresh fruit remove tops from strawberries and slice into small pieces and wash other berries.  Combine all of the fruit (blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries) with the top list of ingredients.

Add fresh orange juice and coat the fruit evenly.

Line baking dish with soft butter and pour in the fruit.  Combine the butter with the brown sugar, in the food processor until little balls form.  Add flour, salt, baking soda, and rolled oats.  Sprinkle the mixture evenly over fruit.

Bake for 50 to 60 minutes until the top is nice and brown.  It should be crunchy!

Serve warm with whipped cream, or ice cream or enjoy at room temperature.  It’s even great chilled!

Enjoy!

Cheers!
