THE FRUITAbout 4-6 plums, quartered and pits removed
About 4-6 apricots, quartered and pits removed
About 1 cup blueberries, rinsed
1 tablespoon flour
3 tablespoons sugar or light brown sugar
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
2 teaspoons lemon juice
Preheat the oven to 375° F. Toss the fruit in a bowl with the flour, sugar, lemon rind and lemon juice. Transfer to an 8" glass pie pan or an equivalent earthenware baking dish. Prepare the topping and distribute evenly over the fruit.
1/2 cup unbleached white flour
6 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
Combine the flour, sugar, spices and salt. Cut the butter into small pieces and work into the flour either with your fingers or two knives until the pieces begin to hold together. This can also be done in a food processor but be sure not to over process. Double the recipe and store in the freezer to save time on the next crisp!
Bake until the top is lightly browned, and the juices have risen around the edges, about 30-40 minutes.
All done! How bout some vanilla ice cream??
