Fruit Medley Crisp

I started off going to make just an apple & pear crisp and when I got the fruit all cut up it just looked so colorless so I perked it up by adding blackberries.







Fruit Medley Crisp

2 apples, pared and diced
2 pears, pared and diced
1 cup blackberries
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup butter, cold and sliced thin

Mix together the apples, pears and blackberries in a medium sized bowl.  Drizzle the lemon juice over and add in sugar.  I added a half cup of sugar because my apples were really tart.  If you use sweet apples, add in only 1/4 cup of sugar.  In another medium sized bowl, mix together flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and sea salt.  Gradually add in cold butter slices and mix by hand until crumbly.  In a greased 9 x 9 pan, add in 1/3 of fruit mixture and then top it with 1/3 of the oat mixture.  Cover with the remainder of the fruit and then cover that with the remaining oat mixture.  Bake for 50 minutes at 350°.
