Fruit Crisp

Yum! You need to make this. It's easy and delicious.
4 servings
2-1/2 cups fresh berries
2-1/2 cups plums or other fruit, chopped
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup rolled cut oats
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Combine the fruit in a mixing bowl. Add the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt, and toss to coat. Pile the fruit mixture into a casserole dish.

Before - the 'after' is much more appetizing.
Combine the flour, brown sugar, oats and salt in a large mixing bowl. Next, cut in the butter with a pastry cutter or two forks, making sure that the butter stays chilled so you end up with a crumbly texture. Mix in the chopped pecans and spread evenly over the fruit.

Bake until crisp and golden brown, 25 minutes. Allow the crisp to cool 20 minutes, then serve with gelato or frozen yogurt.
And when you're finished let your cat lick the bowl. (She only likes the gelato part - Sophie Tucker's not a fruit eater.)
