I have discovered that the friends I’ve made on AR are truly the salt of the Earth….and as some of them are also a bit fruity, I’ve created a recipe in their honor. I even decided at the last minute to add nuts for a few of you. (You know who you are…) Enjoy!
Fruits of the Earth Crisp
2 peaches, peeled and sliced
2 apples, peeled and sliced
1 cup blueberries
1 cup raspberries or blackberries
½ cup dried cranberries
½ cup chopped pecans (optional)
½ teaspoon vanilla OR almond extract
¾ cup flour
¾ cup white sugar
¼ cup brown sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup quick oats
½ cup cold butter
Preheat oven to 375*
Grease an 8” x 8” baking dish
Combine the fruits in a large bowl and toss with the extract.
Mix together the dry ingredients. Cut the butter into chunks
and add to flour mixture. Cut into the mix w/ a pastry cutter
or two knives until coarse chunks form.
Pour fruit in the baking dish and top with butter mixture.
Bake at 375* for 40-50 minutes or until golden brown
Serve warm with ice cream, if desired.
