September Recipe Spotlight: Blueberry Apple Crisp

When September hits, there is nothing like a warm fruit crisp for dessert. I like using blueberries and apples, but I have also made this with just apples, just blueberries, and peaches and blueberries…choose whatever fruits you like! This makes enough for 6-8 guests. 
Fruit Filling
3 cups blueberries
3 cups sliced, peeled apples (I like gala or macintosh)
½ cup sugar
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1 tbsp. orange or lemon juice
Pinch of salt
Crunchy topping
3/4 cup flour
½ cup old fashioned rolled oats 
½ tsp. baking powder
6 tbsp. unsalted butter
½  tsp. salt
1/3 cup sugar
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, mix the fruit filling. Pour it into an 8 inch square baking pan. Put sugar and butter in the bowl and mix on medium speed until fluffy. In a separate medium bowl, stir together the dry ingredients. Add the dry ingredient mixture to the sugar and butter mixture. Use a spoon or your hands to mush ingredients together into clumps. Place the topping equally over the fruit filling in the pan, forming an even layer. Bake for 1 hour. Be sure to cool a bit before serving as the fruit will be really hot!
