Go BONKERS Over Four Berry Bonanza Nut Crisp

May 20th, 2013 No Comments Tags: ,

I made this yummy dessert for my company on the long weekend. An ideal way to end a special celebratory  meal to cheer a belated Mother’s Day, double birthday and anniversary. A perfect way to get and stay in the good books through spring and summer :-)

Ingredients

Filling
2 cups strawberries, washed, cored and quartered
4 cups frozen, thawed blueberries
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp finely grated orange peel

Topping
2/3 cup large-flake oats
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup chopped nuts (almonds, or walnuts &/or pecans)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 cup butter, melted

Instructions

Filling
Preheat oven to 350F. Add all fruit to an 8 inch square baking dish and combine evenly. Drizzle vanilla over top. In a bowl, stir sugar, flour, cinnamon and peel and combine evenly. Sprinkle over the fruit and coat evenly. Even the surface by gently pressing down.

Topping
Combine all dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Drizzle melted butter in and combine well. Sprinkle evenly over fruit.

Bake in the oven for 55 to 65 minutes until the fruit is bubbling and topping is browned. Serve warm with vanilla iced cream.

Commentary
I had some frozen berries including strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and blackberries that gave me the inspiration to bake, so I made a double batch. MmmmMmmm talk about easy makin’ lovin’ spoonfuls served with vanilla ice cream by Cinnamon Girl herself. When it comes out of the oven bubbling it’s like sex in a pan! It was smiles all around. After all, all foods fit…… Celebrate good times, COME ON!
