Fruit crisp is the perfect fall comfort food. It is simple on so many levels.
Quick to make – less than 15 minutes to prepare with ingredients you likely have on hand.
Easy – no special talents like rolling out pastry are required.
Inexpensive – use local fruit, imperfect fruit and frozen fruit on sale.
Healthy – much lower in fat and sugar than many other desserts; and it is easily adapted to be gluten free.
Versatile – it isn’t just for dinner, it’s a way to enjoy fruit and grains at breakfast too.
Energy saver – make a double match of the topping so you’re all ready for a second batch and pop it in the oven while you’re baking the rest of dinner.
Sensory delight – the lovely smell of fruit cooking under a crunchy golden topping and the taste is nothing short of yummy.
