Fruit Crisp

5 cups sliced, peeled apples, pears, peaches, or apricots, or frozen unsweetened peach slices
2-4 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 c oats
1/2 c packed brown sugar
1/4 c flour
1/4 tsp cinnamon, nutmeg, or ginger
1/4 c butter
top with vanilla ice cream (optional)

1. For filling, thaw fruit, if frozen. Do not drain. Place chopped, peeled fruit in a 2-quart square baking dish. Stir in the granulated sugar.

2. For topping, in a medium bowl combine the oats, brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle topping over filling.

3. Bake at 375 for 30 to 35 minutes (40 - 45 minutes for thawed fruit) or until fruit is tender and topping is golden. Serve with ice cream for an even tastier treat. * I also saw a recipe that has you add a little bit of caramel sauce to the filling, and drizzled on top of the ice cream...sounds yummy.
