Quadruple Berry Crisp


Quadruple Berry Crisp
   I can't believe I haven't posted this recipe yet.  It is one of my favorites and it's so easy to make!  It is a great go to when you want a little dessert or want to serve a little something sweet but don't want to put in a ton of effort.

  My mom originally introduced me to this dessert and it was a huge hit.  I have never officially used the same recipe because similar variations are available online and I just use what sounds right!  Here is the recipe I used this time: Triple Berry Crisp

Ingredients:
  • 4.5 cups of frozen fruit (could also fresh)
    • I used strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and raspberries
  • 4 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups quick cook oats
  • 1.5 cups PACKED brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1.5 cups butter substitute


Directions:
  • preheat oven to 350F
  • toss white sugar and berries together, set aside
  • in a separate bowl combine flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg
  • cut in the butter to your dry mix and smoosh together (very technical) with YOUR HANDS (have fun with it! oh, and wash your hands!) until crumbly (don't get over excited and smoosh too much, woah Nellie!)
  • press half the smooshed mix into a 9x13 pan (or several smaller pans if you so choose, like I did)
  • cover with your sugary berries
  • cover the berries evenly with the remaining smooshed mix
  • bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes (or until the berries are a bubblin' and the crumble topping is a little bit browned).
   I don't have a photo of the finished product (all the photos are from pre-baking because we devoured it all so quickly!)

  I served this at my thirty-one party.  It was devoured!  Jesse also hung around all the ladies waiting for his chance to get some before disappearing into video game land haha!  This goes great with a little bit of lactard safe ice cream (I prefer vanilla with it)!!  I will also eventually be trying to make it but with different fruit...like peaches!!!
