Berry Crisp

When looking for a solitary desert, berry crisp is the way to go.

My favourite is blueberry but I also like raspberry and blackberry or even a mixture.

The recipe I use is heavily adapted and changeable depending on my mood and the contents of my refrigerator and cupboards.

1 to 1 1/2 cups berry of choice
Sugar (to Taste)
2 tsp cornstarch OR
3 tsp flour
1 to 2 drops vanilla
1 pk Quaker oatmeal OR
1/2 cup regular oatmeal
1 tbs brown sugar
1 tbs flour (optional)
1 to 2 tbs softened butter
pinch cinnamon

Pre-heat oven to 350. Grease a 2 cup oven safe dish.

In a bowl mix the berries, sugar (1 tsp to 2 tbs) depending on how sweet you want it. cornstarch or flour, vanilla. You can use fresh berries or tawed/untawed frozen berries. Pour into greased dish. In same bowl add oatmeal, sugar, cinnamon, butter. Use a fork or your fingers to make a streusel. Sprinkle over berry mixture. Bake for 25 – 30 minutes.
Serve warm with a sprinkle of powdered sugar.

Sometimes I would add half an apple for a little pectin, in which case I would use less than half of the thickener (cornstarch or flour). Even without the apple you don’t want it to thick a little runny juice is always good.

I prefer to use the quaker packs because I can get it flavoured and it adds a little something to the recipe. Do not use the fruit and cream kind.
