Warm and Tasty Crisp Made With Canned Fruit
Here's a warm, tasty, and easy crisp recipe made with canned fruit and instant oatmeal for the streusel topping that can be whipped up in no time.
- Serves: 9 persons
- 2(15-ounce) cans drained fruit (peaches, pears, cherries, apples)
- 2(1.6-ounce) packages instant oatmeal uncooked (cinnamon and spice or plain)
- ⅓cup all-purpose flour
- ½cup chopped and lightly toasted nuts (pecans, walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts)
- ⅓cup butter (melted)
- Optional: 1 tablespoon sugar
Step 1Gather the ingredients.
Step 2Heat the oven to 425 F.
Step 3Lightly grease an 8- or 9-inch-square glass pan. Pour fruit into the pan.
Step 4In a small bowl, combine oatmeal, flour, nuts, and melted butter. Add the optional tablespoon of sugar if desired, and stir to combine well and until the topping clumps together. Sprinkle over the fruit.
Step 5Bake 15 minutes or until golden brown (longer if you have doubled or tripled the recipe). Remove from the oven and serve warm on its own or with sweetened whipped cream or ice cream.
Step 6Remove from the oven when the topping is golden brown and serve warm on its own or with sweetened whipped cream or ice cream. Note: Most canned fruits will work. You can add spices that marry well with the type of fruit and packaged oatmeal you've chosen to use. If the instant oatmeal is unsweetened, adding sugar to taste will give the topping a better flavor.
