For the Fruit Filling

  • 6 cups prepared fruit of choice*
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/ 4 cup granulated sugar, (plus more or less to taste)*
  • 1 small orange or lemon, juice and zest
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch kosher salt

For the Crisp Topping

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 3/ 4 cup all purpose flour
  • 3/ 4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch kosher salt
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, cold, cut into cubes

For Serving

  • Vanilla Ice Cream


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 375˚F. Butter a 10 inch skillet or a 9 by 13 inch baking dish. Set aside.

  • Step 2

    Add fruit, cornstarch, sugar, citrus juice and zest, cinnamon and salt to a large bowl and toss gently to coat. Transfer fruit mixture to the prepared baking dish and set aside.

  • Step 3

    To make the crisp topping, add all dry ingredients to a large bowl and mix well with a fork. Add cold butter and work into the dry mixture until the mixture resembles wet sand. Scatter the topping all over the prepared fruit and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the fruit is bubbling and has thickened slightly.

  • Step 4

    Let cool slightly before serving with vanilla ice cream, if desired!
