                             Fruit crisp is appealing any time. Any fruit, can be used.
                   Peaches, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, apples, sweet cherries,
                  [ such as Bing], pears, rhubarb, all make a delicious crisp. Even combining
                  your favorite fruits. The aroma when you take it from the oven, who can resist!

                                                                 FRUIT CRISP

                                6 cups of fruit---of your choice
                               1/2 cup sugar---or splenda or other substitute
                               1/4 cup cornstarch
                               1 Tablespoon lemon juice
                               1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
                               1/2 teaspoon salt
                              Prepare filling by combing fruit with the ingredients above in a
                              large bowl. Toss gently. Spoon fruit mixture into a 11 x 7 baking
                              dish that has been coated with a non-stick spray.

                             1/2 cup of all purpose flour
                             1/2 cup of rolled oats [ not quick oats]
                             1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
                             1/8 teaspoon salt
                             6 Tablespoons chilled  unsalted butter, cut into small pieces,
                            1/3 cup of  sliced almonds, [optional, walnuts,or  pecans can be used]

                           Combine dry ingredients. Stir with a whisk to eliminate any lumps.
                           Cut in the butter, using 2 knives, or a pastry blender, until mixture
                           resembles coarse meal. Stir in nuts.Sprinkle evenly over fruit.
                           Bake at 375* for 40-45 minutes, or till bubbly and topping is crisp.

                           This makes 8 servings. Easy to make, and is good anytime of year
                           Enjoy. Perfect with coffee for an evening snack!
