  • Cherry, Strawberry and Blueberry Crisp

    Last summer Dad found these amazing crisps and cobbler mixes to carry at our market.  The thought of making desert without a lot of ingredient mixing appealed to me right away.  Remember, I'm not really into baking.  I'll share a little secret, my husband was constantly making the peach cobblers last year because they were so easy and delicious!  I think he was making them at least once a week!  I may or may not  have had a bit of it for breakfast last summer.

    Customers really seemed to enjoy these crisps and cobbler mixes as well.  We've been getting a lot of requests for them lately with all the yummy summer fruit, so I went ahead and placed an order this morning.  We should have them in stock by Saturday.

    To make the "Berry Crisp", I used 1 container of strawberries, 1 container of blueberries and 1 container of cherries. After thoroughly rinsing the fruit, I sliced the strawberries and pitted the cherries.  I almost didn't add the cherries, but decided they would be worth the work.  Layer the fruit on one ungreased baking sheet.   The instructions said to add 5 tablespoons of softened butter to the mix and sprinkle it over the fruit.  Done.

    Pre-heat oven at 400 F and bake for 25-30 minutes.  We were a bit impatient so ours was in there for 25 minutes.  The smell of the berries and the sugar/cinnamon from the mix was intoxicating.

    This is the kind of dessert I like to make.  You can literally put in the oven while you are eating dinner and enjoy a wonderful homemade dessert after.   Everything you need is in the bag.  Just mix with some butter, add your fruit and you are done!  Notice I used the Apple and Fruit Crisps mix.  It doesn't matter, the label says you can use any kind of fruit.  I think next time I'll try pineapple and mango.
