Fresh Fruit Crisp

I have come to love a fresh fruit crisp for dessert on the weekends.  There's cobbler, with a crust, and then there is crisp with an oatmeal topping, which is crispy and delicious.  I used a deep dish pie pan, and kinda eye balled it on the amount of fruit to cut up.  So, say about 3 cups of strawberries (more), raspberries and blueberries.  Set aside.  I used a baking spray in the pan first.

The crisp consists of 3 cups of oatmeal, 1 cup of flour, 2t salt, 2 cups of brown sugar, 1t baking soda, 1 cup melted butter (2 sticks).  Mix altogether, and then scoop about 1/4 of it into the bottom of the pie pan.  Then spoon the fruit over that.  Top with the remaining crisp topping.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes, or until the fruit bubbles

Cooked and out of the oven

I served it with Trader Joes Vanilla Ice Cream!  It will be excellent for breakfast in the morning, with a good cup of coffee!
