Also a welcome to Shana.
Hey, Shana, sounds great, welcome to rfc. What is it
called when you make a topping using oatmeal and brown
sugar? I like that, is that a crisp? I never make desserts.
My version of a crisp looks a lot like this g:
@@@@@ Now You're Cooking! Export Format
Peach And Mixed-Berry Crisp
2 large peaches, peeled, pitted, chopped (a; bout 2½ cups)
1½ cups blueberries (about 6 ounces; )
1 1/3 cups raspberries (about 6 ounces)
1 1/3 cups blackberries (about 5.6 ounces)
½ cup sugar
2 tablespoons plus 3/4 cup all purpose flour
½ cup (packed) light brown sugar
¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
¼ teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons unsalted butter
butter pecan ice cream or vanilla ice cream
Preheat oven to 3500F. Butter 8x8x2'/2-inch square baking dish. Toss
fruit, sugar and 2 tablespoons flour in large bowl to combine.
Transfer to prepared baking dish. Bake fruit until juices bubble,
stir*ring occasionally, about 40 minutes. Bake without stirring
another 5 minutes. Remove from oven. Increase oven
Meanwhile, whisk remaining ¾ cup flour, sugar, cinnamon, ginger and
salt in medium bowl to blend. Add butter and rub in with fingertips
until small moist clumps form. Sprinkle topping evenly over hot fruit
Bake crisp until topping is golden brown, about 20 minutes. Cool
slightly. Serve warm with ice cream.
