Apple-Berry Crisp

Apple-Berry Crisp

If using cranberries here, add two tablespoons more brown sugar to apple-berry mixture, since cranberries are especially tart.

serves 8


5 Golden Delicious or Rome Beauty apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
2 cups fresh or frozen blackberries, blueberries, cranberries or raspberries
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/3 cup unsifted all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup quick rolled oats

  1. Heat oven to 375° F. Lightly grease a 1 1/2- to 2-quart baking dish. In large bowl, combine apples, berries, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon; toss to blend. Place apple-berry mixture in prepared dish.
  2. In medium-sized bowl, combine flour, salt, remaining 1/2 cup brown sugar, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. With pastry blender or two knives, cut in butter until mixture is crumbly; stir in oats. Sprinkle mixture over apples and bake 40 to 45 minutes or until apples are tender and topping is crisp and golden.
When using frozen berries, do not thaw.
