Tasty Holiday

We celebrated 4th of July with the 'rents for a traditional cook-out. I made a yummy mixed berry crisp that I feel is worthy of posting the recipe. It is super easy and De-licious! I'd post a picture, but it's all gone.

The frozen berries aren't thawed before you use them, so this dessert is super fast.

2 12-ounce packages frozen mixed berries (such as blueberries, blackberries, strawberries and raspberries; about 6 cups), unthawed

1/4 cup sugar

1 cup all purpose flour

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

3/4 cup old-fashioned oats

2/3 cup (packed) golden brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon salt

7 tablespoons chilled unsalted butter, diced

Preheat oven to 375°F. Combine berries, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup flour and lemon juice in large bowl; toss to blend well. Transfer berry mixture to 9-inch-diameter glass pie dish. Combine remaining 3/4 cup flour, oats, brown sugar, spices and salt in medium bowl. Add butter; rub in with fingertips until topping holds together in small moist clumps. Sprinkle over berry mixture.

Bake crisp until berry mixture bubbles thickly and topping is golden brown, about 1 hour. Let stand 15 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Makes 6 servings.

Great recipe!
I really don't make enough crisps. Now's a good time to use all that fresh produce too!
A great summer dessert...
