What Is This Crisp Like

  • Difficulty – This is such an easy dessert that requires pretty much no skill level. It is easy to prepare and you can’t really mess it up while baking either! It can be made in advance and baked just before serving.
  • Taste – The apples and berries are soft and produce a generous amount of juice so the dessert isn’t dry at all. The topping is sweet and crisp. A delicious summer dessert.
  • Serving – This crisp will make six generous servings and it could even be stretched to eight servings with ice cream on the side!

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven – Preheat oven to 350 degrees f/180 degrees c. Grease a deep sided 8 inch baking dish and set aside.
  2. Make crumble mixture – In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, oats, sugar and salt . Stir to combine the dry ingredients. Cut in the butter. Using your hands, incorporate the butter into the dry ingredients until you have a coarse like consistency. Much like big bread crumbs.
  3. Assemble crumble – In a greased 8 inch baking dish, toss in your fruit. Evenly spoon the crumbly mixture over the top, making sure to cover it completely.
  4. Bake – Bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven for about 40-50 minutes. The fruit should be soft and the top golden and crisp.
  5. Bake and serve – Remove from oven and place on a wire rack. Allow to cool for about 10 minutes before serving.

Recipe Tips

  • Best apples to use for this crisp – You can use many varieties, I used Honey crisp. Other apples that will work are Gala, Fuji, Red Delicious or even Granny Smith. Keep in mind apples cook at different times. So depending on which apples you chose for your recipe, the cooking time may vary a little.
  • Cut the apples evenly – To ensure even cooking, make sure you cut your apples pretty much the same size. And don’t slice them too thin or the crumble will end up being mushy.
  • Don’t over mix the crumble mixture – The idea is to have a crumbly topping. If you over mix, you will end up with a pastry like consistency.
  • Prepare in advance – You can put this together early in the day and bake later in the evening. Just keep the crisp covered in the fridge until baking time.
  • How to store leftover crisp – Cover it completely and store it in the fridge up to 5 days.
  • How to reheat leftover apple and mixed berry crisp – reheat it in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes.

Substitutions

  • Apples – Feel free to use pears, plums or peaches can easily be used in this dessert.
  • Berries – I used mixed frozen berries. You can use a mix of fresh berries or even just strawberries, blueberries, raspberries or blackberries.
  • Add nuts – You can choose to add pecans, almonds or walnuts the topping for extra flavour and texture.
