It's so easy to customize this tasty dessert. Whether you like apples, pears, peaches or cherries  – the options are endless! Just grab your favorite fresh or frozen fruit for a quick and juicy no-fuss crisp. Cinnamon and brown sugar add a touch of warm flavor in the crunchy oat topping.

Ingredients

5 - cups sliced peeled cooking apples, pears, peaches, or apricots, or frozen unsweetened peach slices
2 - tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 - cup regular rolled oats
1/2 - cup packed brown sugar
1/4 - cup all-purpose flour
1/4 - teaspoon ground nutmeg, ginger, or cinnamon
1/4 - cup butter
1/4 - cup chopped nuts
or flaked coconut
Vanilla ice cream (optional)


Directions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. If fruit is frozen, thaw but do not drain. Place fruit in a 2-quart square baking dish. Stir in the granulated sugar.
For topping, in a medium bowl stir together oats, brown sugar, flour, and nutmeg. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the nuts. Sprinkle topping over fruit.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes (40 minutes for thawed frozen fruit) or until fruit is tender and topping is golden. If desired, serve warm with ice cream.
