Fruit crisps often take time to prepare, what with slicing the fruit and baking in the oven. But this quick and easy dessert uses canned pie filling and is cooked in a skillet! Serve it alone or with a scoop of ice cream.
I combined different recipes to make up this easy dessert, and now I always keep the ingredients on hand. Serve it warm with whipped topping or ice cream for a comforting finish to meals. Or fix it for brunch instead of a fruit salad.
“With all its blueberries, this is rich in antioxidants,” says Patricia Krusing of Phoenix, Arizona. “It's scrumptious and goes together in a snap.” If you have it on hand, this warm dessert pairs well with vanilla ice cream.
What says summer more than this sweet dessert simply packed with fresh cherries and juicy peaches? To beat the heat, dollop with a scoop of low-fat frozen yogurt or ice cream. Beth Garvin - Cisco, Texas
