Baked desserts are great for warming up on a cold day. When the wind starts blowing, try this fruit crisp. Made with spiced apples and pears, and topped with a peanut butter oat crisp, it's sure to take the chill off of even the coldest day.
TOTAL TIME: 0:45
YIELD: 6 SERVINGS
½ c. old-fashioned oats
3 small Gala or Empire apples
2 medium pears
1 tbsp. water
2 tsp. brown sugar
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
½ tsp. ground ginger
½ c. Dried Cranberries
⅓ c. chunky, sweetened peanut butter
3 tbsp. whole wheat flour
¼ c. fat-free whipped cream
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spread the oats in a single layer on a jelly-roll pan. Toast them 5 to 8 minutes or until golden brown, stirring once halfway through.
Meanwhile, in a 4-quart saucepan, combine the apples, pears, water, sugar, cinnamon, and ginger. Cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 10 to 12 minutes or until sugar dissolves and fruit softens. Remove from the heat and stir in the cranberries. Divide the mixture among 6 shallow 12- to 16-ounce baking dishes.
In a medium bowl, combine the oats, peanut butter, and flour. Rub the mixture between your fingers to form small clumps then sprinkle it over the fruit mixture in the baking dishes. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until browned and bubbling. To serve, top each crisp with 1 tablespoon of whipped cream.
Tips & Techniques
Tip: If you don't have individual baking dishes, you can use one shallow 2-quart baking dish and bake for 20 to 25 minutes instead.
magicmuggle01: Myself and my partner (Katrina) only got each other an Easter egg. And that was the next day when the supermarkets sold them at a reduced price so that they can get rid of them. Saved £4 each, only cost £1 each. Got to save where you can
