Berry (or Cherry) Crisp

My very favorite dessert growing up was my grandma’s berry pie.  Crisps are also great and one of my favorite desserts because, like pie, you can make them with so many different types of fruit and you can’t really go wrong.

Crisps are kind of like pie, but with the “crust” only on the top.  You can eat it cold, but why not take some of the fall chill off and have a piece after it has cooled slightly from the oven?   Here I made a marionberry crisp and then later made some slight variations to the recipe (see below) for a super delicious cherry crisp.    If you are so lucky to live in the NW and are able to get some marionberries, I highly recommend them. YUM!!   Traditionally, I would make crisps with oats, but since oats are out now, this recipe was great with the crunchiness of some nuts.  You could also chop the nuts really fine for less of a crunch.

Before I begin, please check out my new apron I made 🙂 I’m proud of it, especially since I have had the fabric for probably over a year.  Then it took me only about 2 hours to make…isn’t that how things go sometimes? I encourage you to get going on a project you have been putting off because really, it may only take you a few hours to finish it, and think of the overwhelming feeling of accomplishment you will have?? Facebook and TV can wait; they will always be there… I digress…


Pondering my next recipe!
