Quick and Easy Fruit Crisp

If you're in the mood for an absolutely delicious, autumn (or summer) dessert, look no further. Fruit crisp is your answer. I recently made this recipe with apples, but it's great in the summertime when peaches are in season as well (also good with cherry, pineapple, blueberry, or any other fruit you'd like). It seems complicated, but it's so simple. There's no dough or crust to deal with...

...just warm, baked apples (or other fruit) topped with sweet brown sugar, crunchy oats, and smooth butter.

Fruit and oats sounds like a wholesome dessert to me, don't you agree?

Top it with a scoop of country vanilla ice cream and you're in business!

Your house will smell better than any old apple-scented Yankee candle, too.

Fruit Crisp

  • 4 cups sliced tart apples (Honeycrisp or Granny Smith)
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ cup oats
  • ¾ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¾ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ⅓ cup margarine or butter, softened 

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Arrange apples in greased 8x8x2 square pan. Mix remaining ingredients and sprinkle over apples.

2. Bake until topping is golden brown and apples are tender, about 30 minutes. Serve warm with ice cream.

Note: Use ⅔ cup brown sugar if using canned fruit. Can substitute apple with cherry, peach, pineapple, blueberry (add 2 tablespoons lemon juice for blueberry)
