Fabulous Fruit Cobbler Recipe of the Month-December

Fabulous Fruit Crisp

7 tbsps COLD butter
1/2 c flour
1 c oatmeal, uncooked
1 c firmly packed brown sugar, light or dark
1/2 tsp cinnamon
4 c fruit, peeled, pitted & chopped into bite size pieces (mix and match the fruit!) Good choices: apples, pears, nectarines, plums, peaches
1/2 c sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 c blueberries or blackberries
whipped cream

You can make this the night before and cook in the morning.

Butter a 9x13 baking dish. Heat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix 4 cups of fruit with 1/2 c sugar and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, let stand.

In separate bowl, mix flour, oatmeal, brown sugar, cinnamon. Cut butter into small chunks and quickly cut into flour mixture. Should be crumbly.

Pour fruit mixture into greased baking dish, top with blueberries or blackberries, spread out evenly in dish. Top with flour mixture, spread out evenly over fruit.

Bake for 45 minutes, until bubbly. You can cover with tin foil for the first 30 minutes to retain moisture, then uncover for last 15 minutes.

If you use a smaller baking dish, put a cookie sheet under the dish so it doesn't bubble over onto the oven.

Scoop out with a big spoon into a dessert bowl and put whipped cream on top for a special treat.

Makes 8-10 small servings.
