  1. With several peaches & pears to use up, this recipe sounds perfect. I have to admit up front that I was ill prepared to make this as suggested. I thought I had all the ingredients but DH polished off the Grapenuts this morning, so I added more oats. I am not fond of cooked raisins so I added frozen cranberries. I thought the tartness would work well with the sweetness of the topping, peaches & pears. Other than that... I cut back on the OJ to 1/4 C and poured over the fruit before adding the topping. The house smells divine with a hint of ginger. Tastes great too! Thanks a bunch Lubie!
  2. This is a great easy recipe. I was in a hurry and didn't want to go to the grocery store , so I made do what I had. Like the other comment I did not use grape nuts, but substituted old-fashioned oat. I also did not have apple or orange juice, so I used 2/3 cup grapefruit juice . The crisp turned out very nice with flavors representative of the fruit used and not too sweet. The Grape-Nuts would have added a lot of texture , so next time I make this I will definitely use them.
