Cleaning out the freezer earlier this morning I found some apricots from earlier in the summer. I thought for sure I had used the last of them, but there was one last freezer bag. Out they came to add into this delicious crisp below.
Pear and Apricot Crisp
1 1/2 Cups/300 grams of fresh or frozen apricots
2 Teaspoons of cinnamon, divided
1 Cup/140 grams of flour
1 Cup/100 grams of oats
1/2 Cup/100 grams of white sugar
1/2 Cup/120 grams of butter
Pinch of salt
Cut the apricots in half and remove the stone. Peel the pears and cut them into approximately 1 inch pieces. Set aside
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, oats, sugar, salt and 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon. Stir to combine the dry ingredients. Cut in the butter. Using your hands, incorporate the butter into the dry ingredients until you have a coarse like consistency. Much like big bread crumbs.
In a greased 8 inch baking dish, toss in your fruit. Sprinkle over the remaining teaspoon of cinnamon and stir around to combine. Evenly spoon the crumbly mixture over the top, making sure to cover it completely.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree F oven for about 40-50 minutes. The fruit should be soft and the top golden and crisp.
Serve with your choice of fresh whipped cream, ice cream or yoghurt. I served mine today with Greek yoghurt as it wa what we had in the house.
A nice and easy dessert.
