Fruit crisps are one of my favorite desserts. They’re so easy to make and I always seem to have the ingredients on hand. I had some long time friends over for dinner the other night and needed to whip up a dessert. I had a few plums and apples in the fridge, which is always a great combination. I had some ginger root too so I decided to add that to liven up this classic dish.
Nom. nom. nom.
3 plums (remove pit and slice into small pieces)
1 apple (peeled and grated)
2 TB sugar
2 TB flour
1 tsp fresh grated ginger
3/4 c. all purpose flour
1/3 c. old fashioned rolled oats
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. chopped walnuts (optional)
dash of salt
1/2 stick of butter (cold and cut into small pieces)
Preheat oven to 375. Grease 4-6 ramekins and place on baking sheet.
Mix all filling ingredients together. Pour the filling into the ramekins, leaving enough room for the crumble topping. Set aside.
For the topping, combine flour, oats, sugars, walnuts and salt. Add cold butter and mix until the crumble and butter form pea sized pieces. I just use my hands but you can use a mixer with a paddle attachment. Evenly distribute topping amongst ramekins.
Bake for 30-35 mins, until top is golden brown. Serve immediately or at room temperature with vanilla ice cream.
