I've always had a sweet tooth. I always get the 2 cookies instead of the chips at Subway. After a big meal I can always go for dessert. If I'm going to a pot luck, my dish-of-choice is always a sweet one.
That is why I don't keep sweets in my house very often...
And that is why I've become an expert at baking them...
Today I was craving something sweet, so I dug around in my freezer and found those berries from the Berry Patch that I froze a few weeks ago and made a quick and easy Berry Crisp.
Here's how it's done:
2 Cups of mixed berries
1 T flour
1 T sugar
1/4 Cup brown sugar
1 Cup oats
1/4 cup butter, diced
Layer the berries in a greased glass bread pan. Sprinkle flour and sugar over top.
in a separate bowl, combine brown sugar, oats and butter. Get in there with your hands and squish it until you have a crumbly mixture without any big butter chunks.
Spread the crumble over the berries and pop in a 400 degree oven for 20-30 minutes.
Quick, easy, sweet and delicious. Plus, think of all that goodness you have with the berries and oats.
I'm gonna go eat some more before I get ready for work.
You could also call this baked oatmeal and eat it for breakfast.... That's what I plan on doing.
