Fruit Crisp With A Cookie Mix Topping


I had a lot of fruit that was ripe and did not want to see it go to waste. I decided to make a fruit crisp and as I was making it, I thought because I also had a lot of cookie mixes, I decided to make the topping with the cookie mix.


I got this cool baking dish last Christmas on clearance and love the way it looks.


The first step was to peel and chop the fruit in large pieces.  Then add the pineapple juice, sugar, flour, and cinnamon to the fruit pieces and stir to combine.


Then pour the fruit mixture into the baking dish.


Then place the cookie mix ( make sure to add the cinnamon topping included in the package) and butter into a food processor and process until it crumbles. I used a snickerdoodle mix but a sugar cookie one would taste great also.

Spread the cookie mixture over the fruit and bake at 350 for 50- 60 minutes. 



What is your favorite fruit to make a fruit crisp from?


Ingredients

9 ripe pears
3 green apples
1/4 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon

                                                             For the topping

                                                              one package snickerdoodle or sugar cookie mix
                                                                1/2 cup soft butter
Directions
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Peel, core, and cut the pears and apples into large chunks. Place the fruit in a large bowl and  juice, sugar, flour, and cinnamon.. Pour into a 9 by 12 by 2-inch oval baking dish.

For the topping:

Combine the cookie mix, and butter in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on low speed for 1 minute, until the mixture is in large crumbles. Sprinkle evenly over the fruit, covering the fruit completely.

Place the baking dish on a sheet pan and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour, until the top is brown and the fruit is bubbly. Serve warm.
