A fruit crisp is a tasty and sweet Granny Smith Crisp dessert made with baked fruit as the bottom topped with a crumbly topping. There usually is no crust. A typical crisp combines a variety of ingredients, which include brown sugar, cinnamon, oatmeal and nuts that are mixed with the butter, flour and cinnamon to create a granular topping that is spread over the baked fruit. Apple crisp is one of the most commonly prepared crisps and one that can be served cold or warm - although most prefer it served warm. See below for a typical Apple Crisp Recipe.
5 cups Granny Smith apples, pared, cored, and sliced
1/2 - 3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Combine 3/4 cup flour, 1/2 cup quick rolled oats, 1/4 cup each packed brown sugar and white sugar; cut in 1/2 cup butter or margarine until crumbly mixture is formed.
Toss apples with sugar and cinnamon; spread in bottom of 11 x 8 x 2 inch baking dish.
Sprinkle with streusel topping. Bake at 350 degrees 35 to 40 minutes.
Recipe makes 6 servings.
This sweet dessert is given a grand finale with a dollop of light or even fat free Cool Whip. If you freeze the Cool Whip first, it's almost like topping it with ice cream!
