Here is the recipe I use to make a topping for peach and apple crisps. Posted in response to a request for a topping for a blueberry crisp. Recipe originally from Southern Living... an excellent one for any fresh (or canned/frozen) fruits. I love the chewiness the oatmeal gives. Prep time does not include the time needed to prepare fruit.


  1. Here is the recipe I use to make a topping for peach and apple crisps:.
  2. In sm bowl, mix brown sugar & flour; cut in butter; stir in oats.Sprinkle over prepared fruit in 8x8" pan.
  3. Bake 20-25 minutes
  4. For an 8x8" pan, you would need appx 4 c of fruit, prepared to your taste (sugar, spices, extract, flour, etc.) or two 15oz cans of canned fruit (dummped into 8x8" pan).

I used this crisp topping for my huckleberry crisp and it was wonderful! It wasn't too sweet and the oatmeal gave it the right amount of chewy-nish (Is that a word? LOL) The cook time was right on also. Thanks for sharing your recipe!I just made this again. LOL~ I picked some blackberries today and this recipe just screamed at me. hehehe I made it in a 13 x 9 pan and made 4 times the recipe for a nice thick crisp! Thanks again for sharing!
