This Very Berry Apple Crisp is an incredibly easy dessert that has a sweet and juicy filling under a crunchy oat topping. A delicious dessert anytime of the year!
I happen to love fruit desserts. Apple crisp is one of my favorites, but my favorite fruit is strawberries, so why not combine the two? Exactly what I was thinking! I combined them and added some blueberries too, along with some special warm spices to make this dessert knock your socks off delicious! So good! The juicy filling creates the best sauce to spoon over vanilla ice cream that is of course sitting on top of the crisp. It is so good, a must try!
What's in Very Berry Apple Crisp?
- Whole Wheat Flour
- Brown Sugar
- Old Fashioned Oats
- Salted Butter
Can I use frozen fruit in this recipe?
Yes! Frozen fruit works great! Use the same amount as listed in recipe, but add 3 tablespoons of flour with the sugar and spices and mix it all up and coat the fruit with it. Then proceed with the recipe as it says. I often use frozen fruit in the fall and winter months when I was fruity desserts. Plus, frozen fruit is so much cheaper than fresh during those months.
What type of apples should I use for this berry apple crisp?
Any kind works! I normally use apples from my trees and I have no clue what kind they are. However, I have used Gala and McIntosh apples for this recipe and they worked well. You can use your favorite, some from a friend's apple tree, or whatever is cheapest at the store. This recipe is so flavorful and fool proof, any apple will work!
How to Make Berry Apple Crisp
First step is to prep your fruit. Clean and wash the strawberries and blueberries. Then hull the strawberries and slice them in half. Peel the apples and slice them into ¼ inch slices.
Next step in a small bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Note*** if you are using frozen fruit add 3 tablespoons of flour too and mix it in with the sugar.
Now in another large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, oats. Cut in the softened butter with a fork until the mixture is crumbly.
Add all of the fruit to a 9x13 baking dish and toss it just a bit to mix it up. Sprinkle the sugar mix over the fruit. Note*** if you are using frozen fruit, mix the sugar & flour with the fruit so it is coated. This will help thicken up the moisture from the frozen fruit.
Lastly, evenly sprinkle the oat topping over the fruit and bake the crisp in a 350° oven for 40-50 minutes until the fruit is tender and bubbly and the oat topping is golden brown.
Let the crisp cool for about 15-20 minutes before serving. Dollop with whipped cream or my favorite - vanilla ice cream! Use the sauce the filling makes and drizzle it over the ice cream. Seriously, its the best thing ever!
How long will this crisp recipe last after baked?
Honestly, when I make this it doesn't even last 2 days between six of us eating it. I do keep it in the fridge, tightly covered with plastic wrap or in a baking dish that has a lid. It should last 3-4 days in the fridge.
