A Revelation

I always have.
But I just realized that as much as I love chocolate...
I prefer fruit for dessert.
With ice cream of course.
Just delightful!
The other night I made an apple-blueberry crisp.
Nice and hot.
Gooey and crispy.
Sorry no pictures...but I do have a recipe.

Apple-Blueberry Crisp

3 cups chopped granny smith apples
1 cup fresh blueberries
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup oats
3/4 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp nutmeg
6 Tbsp butter

Preheat oven to 375*. Grease an 8x8 pan (bottom and sides) with shortening. Put the apples in the pan and sprinkle the blueberries on top. In a separate bowl mix the sugar, flour, oats, cinnamon and nutmeg. Then cut in the butter. Sprinkle the topping over the fruit. Bake for 30 minutes. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or sweetened whipped cream.
