Here we go! Another easy dessert for this time of year. I like to double this recipe to have one for now and freeze one for later. This is the best crisp I have ever had. It is everything it is supposed to be and more. Crispy, sweet, a little chewy, all like an oatmeal cookie on top of my pan of apples or any other fruit filling. You can get extra fancy by adding nuts, dried cranberries, or even some shredded coconut. Be sure to freeze each recipe flat in a zip top bag. Can freeze up to 6 months. To defrost set on counter for an hour or two. Top your favorite fruit filling and bake. Great with ice cream. This is one of my favorite desserts to serve to large crowds. I always get rave reviews.
In a large bowl mix all ingredients well. Store in the freezer, flat in a gallon sized zip top bag or sprinkle over top of your favorite fruit filling for the best Crisp Dessert ever. Bake in a 350° oven for 30 minutes. Makes one 9 x 13 inch sized Fruit Crisp. Apple or cherry are perfect for this time of year.
For this dessert, I big time cheated, and used two cans of apple pie filling. Shame on me.
ROAD TRIP !
This past weekend, my family and I attended our 9th Annual Williamsburg Grand Illumination. That is when Williamsburg is decorated with all the fresh fruit, greens, and vegetable swags, beautifully candlelit, and puts on a huge firework display to kick off the Advent Season. It was very relaxing for all of us and I always come back recharged and ready to tackle the craziness of the Christmas Season. Each year, I find neat ideas down there for gifts, cooking, and decorating. Himself even one upped me by taking me to a really good BBQ Pitt that I did not know about! I love when he gives me foodie surprises! The place was called Pierce’s and when we drove up at 2 PM on a Friday afternoon to a full parking lot we knew it had to be good. This may be a new tradition added to our W-Burg jaunt. The BBQ was excellent as well as the coleslaw and hushpuppies. I think this was the first time the kids had hushpuppies and liked them, except for Daelyn, strange. Their BBQ Sauce has a hint of cinnamon and was perfectly spicy with a touch of heat. So if you are ever in the Historic Triangle, check out Pierce’s.
