You know those nights where company is coming over without much advance notice? That’s what this recipe is perfect for. It’s made of things that are always in my pantry and can be adapted to whatever fresh or frozen fruit you have in the house. I used the peaches and blackberries that came in our Local Box this week.
I originally made this dessert for just 2 people in 6 oz. ramekins. For company last night, I tripled the recipe and baked it in a pie dish.
- 2 c. fruit
- 6 Tbsp. butter, softened
- 1 c. oats
- 3 tsp. flour
- 1/3 c. brown sugar
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Cut the fruit into small chunks (~1/2″) and spread it in the bottom of a pie dish.
- Combine the remaining ingredients in a small bowl, then spread it on top of the fruit.
- Bake for ~40 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes before serving.
The peaches were so sweet and the blackberries were a bit tart, so it was really a perfect combination of fruit for this crisp. The soft, fresh fruit is also a nice contrast to the crunchy, rich crumble topping. Such a quick, comfort food-like dessert. I’d highly recommend eating this with vanilla ice cream!
