Quick Fix: Any Fruit Crisp

Posted by Carren Jao Pineda |

The cold season is getting to me. All I want to do is have something nice and warm in my tummy. In honor of that urge, I'll be posting some recipes I never want to lose (because someone brought down the website, or some silliness like that).

Here's an easy recipe my fiance and I have used for apples, pears and peaches! It's a great replacement for apple (or pear, or peach pie).

  • Pears, or peaches, or apples--peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 2 cups rolled oats (or cereals with lots of grains in it)
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 1/2 sticks butter, melted


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine fruits, water and lemon juice in a baking pan. In a bowl, combine oats (or cereal), flour, sugar and cinnamon. Pour in the melted butter and stir to make a crumbly mixture. Spread the topping evenly over the fruit.

An apple, peach crisp before it goes into the oven. It looks great already, doesn't it?

Bake for 45 to 55 minutes or until the topping is crisp and browned.

Top with vanilla ice cream, if available. When baked right, the fruits should be warm and mushy, their juice mixing with the sweet crust. Yum!

This one was topped with green tea ice cream. Vanilla was better :)
