Recipe by Chef-Boy-I-Be Illin

This week we received some tart gooseberries and sour pie cherries with our weekly CSA allotment. There weren't enough of either to do much with so I decided to combine them and make them into a nice crisp. This crisp has both a bottom and top crisp, which helps with the tartness of these berries. You'll need 4 cups of fruit, so feel free to combine whatever you happen to have on hand.
