It's summer in some parts of the world and berries are in season. If I could get a hold of these berries, then I would be making these. I usually make this at parties by special request but I haven't had the chance to make it again because my schedule's been so hectic lately. I specially love it with vanilla ice cream. I featured this already in yummy magazine and also in true confections and have gotten good comments so just in case you don't have a copy yet, here it is again.
2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and halved
2 cups assorted berries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries
1/2 cup sugar
FOR THE TOPPING
1 cup all purpose white flour
1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cubed
1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
2. For the filling, in a large bowl, combine the strawberries, the assorted berries and sugar. Toss to mix well.
3. In another bowl, combine the flour, oats, sugars and salt. Add the cubed butter and work in with the flour using a fork until resembles into a sandy mixture with pea size particles.
4. Pour filling in a baking dish and then sprinkle the crumb mixture evenly on top.
5. Bake the berry crisp in the oven for 35-40 minutes or until the top is golden. brown. Transfer onto wire racks to cool. Serve them warm with ice cream if desired.
