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.
