A fusion of late-summer fruits, these crisps make a simple dessert—and what's left can be kept for breakfast. Look for apple crisp mix in the produce department of your grocery store. —Nicole Werner, Ann Arbor, Michigan

"This would be more than a whole meal with 74 carbs for someone that is diabetic... anyone have any solutions to reduce those carbs and perhaps the fat?"

"Fantastic recipe it tastes wonderful. I really appreciate recipes with timesaver products. Those make the difference if I can make the recipe or not. I only had to pick up plums and crisp mix had other items at home already. As my mother said "If you don't have anything nice to say dont say anything at all!" So Simko12 the rating is to say whether you liked the finished product. Do not rate based on personal opinion only and insult others because you would do it differently. Submit your own if you have a better one. I will pray for you."

"I think the recipe sounds good, but I too would make my own crisp. The nutrition information would be about the same.

Simko12, Please try a more polite approach to disagreeing with the use of a convenience product."

"What?! Too lazy to make your own crisp? out of natural ingredients rather than the chemical substitute? How about a healthy substitute?"
