Apricot and Cherry Mini Crisps



I first made these crisps two years ago as soon as Deeba posted the recipe on her blog. Since then I have tried this recipe several times with different combination of fruits. Other than Apricot and Cherry I have tried apple and strawberry and with the left over fruits from our fruit diet that we have once a week :) (a mixture of mango, apple, strawberry, banana, kiwi & orange). I love this Apricot and Cherry combination the best and then the strawberry and apple combo. I have served these crisps in several parties and our guests loved it. Try this with the seasonal fruits of your choice!


Apricot and Cherry Mini Crisps
(Recipe Source: Deeba)
Ingredients:

3 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup vanilla sugar or regular sugar
500gms apricots, halved & pitted
250gms cherries, pitted
Juice of 1/2 lime

Topping:
1/2 cup vanilla sugar or brown sugar (I used brown sugar)
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup rolled oats
4 tablespoons butter, chilled



Method:
  • First the topping: in a small bowl, combine vanilla sugar, flour and rolled oats. Cut in the butter until crumbly.
  • Preheat oven to 190 C.
  • In a large bowl, combine flour & sugar; stir in the apricots, cherries & lime juice & toss to coat well. In case the fruits are tart you can adjust the sugar according to taste.
  • Divide equally between 8 small ramekins or into a 9” pie dish.
  • Sprinkle a couple of tablespoons of topping over each ramekin, pressing down gently to seal the top.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes till the top is light brown & fruit juices are bubbling out. Or about 40 minutes if you are using a single pie dish. Remember to keep a tray underneath to collect juices that will overflow.
  • Serve warm or cold. A dollop of unsweetened whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice-cream makes this crumble luxurious.
