I modified this recipe and cut it in half so that my small family could enjoy a healthier dessert without too much left over to snack on in the middle of the night.

Quick, easy, and delicious. The topping seemed a little too salty, I will probably reduce the salt to 1/4 tsp next time. I may also reduce the splenda in the filling. I thought it was too sweet but DH and the kids liked it as is. 5/8 cup = 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons 1/8 cup = 2 tablespoons

Since I couldn't decide which fruit to use, I used a generous 1 1/2 cups each of fozen blackberries & frozen peaches! A great combination, I thought, & great tasting when I included both cinnamon & nutmeb, & served it up with some frozen peach yogurt! Just my kind of great recipe!

This was one of my choices for PAC 07. Easy to prepare and loaded with taste. The tang of the blackberries and the sweetness of the sugar made for a good combo. If I make this again I may try the peaches. Thanks for the recipe.
