Red Pear-Blackberry Crisp


  This recipe is one of my all-time favorites. I received the original recipe from a family friend many years ago, and it is my "go-to" for dutch-oven dinners and entertaining large groups because there's hardly any prep involved and the recipe can easily be doubled, tripled, quadrupled (you get the idea). Plus, it's just plain delicious!

Fruit Crisp

6 c. fruit-peaches, pears, apples, assorted berries (I used red pears and blackberries for this one)
3/4 c. sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon (I leave it out when I make a crisp that has berries in it.)
3 tbsp. cornstarch

  Combine above ingredients and place in a casserole dish (or dutch-oven).

Combine the following and sprinkle over fruit:
1 c. brown sugar
1 stick butter, melted
1 c. flour
1 c. oats
1/2 tsp. salt
  Bake at 350 degrees 1 hour, or in dutch-oven with hot coals accordingly.

I am taking this to a dinner we were invited to, otherwise I would post pictures of it once it's baked.
