I've made apple crisp, but mix it with peaches, pears and raspberries? Oooh baby! The combination is superb!
I seriously couldn't get enough of it. We ate about 1/3 of it and off it went to a friends house! I was afraid I'd eat the whole thing.
Naturally we ate this over ice cream. Not that it needed anything else. I could have just sat on the couch with a fork and been a happy camper.
It had to have been healthy, right? All that fruit? Actually, calories wise, it didn't come out bad at all. Many desserts are much worse.
I also would have put Splenda in it if I was keeping the whole thing here to eat. Her family doesn't eat Splenda so I respectively didn't put it in but it would have saved a ton of calories and still been delicious!
Fruit & Berry Crisp Recipe
4 large peaches
4 large pears
4 large apples, I used fuji
Zest of 1 orange
Zest of 1 lemon
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 1/2 cups plus 2 - 3 tbsp. all purpose flour
1 pint of raspberries
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup quick cooking oatmeal
1/4 lb. cold unsalted butter, diced
Peel the peaches, pears and apples, slice them into thick wedges and place them into a large bowl. Add the orange and lemon zest, 1/4 granulated sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 2 tbsp. flour. Toss well. Gently mix in the raspberries. Allow the mixture to sit for 5 minutes. If there is a lot of liquid, add another tablespoon of flour. Pour the mixture into a 10 x 15 in. baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.
Combine 1 1/2 cups flour, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, salt, oatmeal and the cold, diced butter in the bowl. Mix using both hands until the butter is pea sized and the mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle evenly on the top of the fruit. Bake for 1 hour at 350 until the top is browned and crisp and the juices are bubbly.

**Note, you could totally use Splenda in this to cut the calories a lot. If I wasn't taking this to a friend, I would have used splenda instead of granulated sugar.
