I used ranier cherries and walnuts for this, and found it good but nothing you'd really need a recipe for. It's just your basic fruit & sugar with some crumbly stuff on top--not fancy, but nice for a simple family dinner. Again, it was tasty (especially the plums), but how couldn't it be with fresh fruit and sweetened oats & nuts & butter?

This dessert is comfort food at best. I used tart red plums with sweet bing cherries and I threw in about cup of fresh blue berries that I wanted to use up. Tasty, not too sweet, beautiful color and a crunchy topping. The topping was not floury at all. You could use any type fruit. I did increase the cinnamon and I used chopped walnuts. Great with vanilla icecream.

I thought the filling of this crisp was delicious. The crumb crust however, which is usually the best part of a crisp, was less than desirable. I was totally disappointed in the dry powdery crust. I would definitely try this again, but use way more butter and maybe flour to bulk it up and make it crumbly.
