This is one of my favourite dessert recipes because it is so adaptable to seasonal fruits, and also because the fruit and oatmeal in it are good for you, so it doesn’t feel like quite as much of an indulgence as many desserts do.
You don’t often find fruit crisps in England. ‘Fruit crumble’ made with a topping made only from flour, butter and sugars is much more popular. I’ve eaten some lovely crumbles over the years, but I prefer the texture that the oatmeal adds to fruit crisps. Also, fruit crumble is usually served with hot custard poured over top, making it anything but crisp!
My favourite way to make fruit crisps is with pears, which are in season here in England at the moment, but you can also use drained canned pears if that is not the case where you are.
