I often make this for a Sunday Dessert. You can vary the fruit to suit your taste. Use fresh when it's in season or frozen all year round.

This was just delish! I'm not giving stars because I changed a few things and so perhaps my opinion will be biased, lol. Firstly, I didn't have cranberries, so subbed raspberries. Yummy. They made the most delicious sweet syrup that ran through the whole crisp. They did make the whole dish just a touch on the sweet side though, so anyone else wanting to sub raspberries, you could cut back on the sugar a touch if you do. Secondly, I made this in a 4 c. pan. I used half the sugar/flour mixture for the fruit, 2 apples, 1 c. fresh rhubarb, and a 1/2 c. of raspberries. Because the fruit really cooked down, I think I would use even more next time (but still keep the smaller pan). I made the whole amount of topping, and it still was a bit on the skimpy side for my 4 c. oval dish. I'm not sure how the same amount could possibly cover a dish double the size. Oh, and I used white flour, added a pinch of cloves with the cinnamon, and left out the orange rind (you see why I couldn't leave stars with all my tweaking!) At any rate, it was perfectly cooked in 40 minutes and DH (the rhubarb hater) and I gobbled up 2/3 of the pan with a scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt...perfection. I'm looking forward to the leftover serving for breakfast! Thanks for a great crisp recipe that perfectly combines lovely tart summer fruits. My rhubarb patch will be getting a regular raiding with this recipe. Next combination: rhubarb/apple/peach. Yum.
