Summer Fruit Crisps and Cobblers

Are you feeling like it's summer yet? All the summer fruits are filling the markets and I feel like it's time to make some fruit crisps and cobbler! Some people are even lucky enough to have fruit trees that show promise of lots of ripe fruits. Peaches, berries, apricots, nectarines, cherries, apples all make wonderful fruit desserts.

  First of all, I'm sharing my favorite recipe for a baked fruit crisp. You can use what ever fruit you want: fresh, frozen,and even canned fruit pie filling all work great. This crisp recipe is easy to make and easy to remember. It has a great combination of oats, brown sugar and coconut. What could be bad about that?

Summer Fruit Crisp
Layer about 4-6 cups cut up fruit or 2 bags frozen fruit, your choice, in a baking dish. (Toss with sugar if you prefer. I think the topping makes it sweet enough.) I used about 10 fresh peaches and 1/2 pint of blueberries.

Mix together and pat on top of the fruit:
   1/2 cup melted butter
   1 cup flour
   1 cup oatmeal
   1 cup brown sugar
   1 cup coconut
Bake at 350 degrees. It's done when the top is golden brown. Fresh fruits take about 30 minutes, frozen may take up to an hour. 
This is tasty by itself or topped with ice cream, yogurt or whipped creammmmmmmmm.

 Now onto a basketful of delicious recipes for fruit crisps and cobblers I found . The first one is the easiest. It's only 3 ingredients! Fast and delicious thanks to Deandra's Crafts.

Cobbler recipes using cake mixes make them very simple. Lori Ann's Food and Farm shares this recipe for blueberry and peach cobbler, using frozen fruits and cake mix.  The beauty of this recipe, it's made in a slow cooker!

 Wendolinia made these darling fruit crisps in a jar. You can make them ahead, freeze them and bake when you need them. She gives all the details for using whatever fruit you want. Great idea!

Peach seems to be one of the favorite cobbler flavors. Brought to us by Six Sisters Stuff, this one is called a dump cake! Again, it uses a cake mix for the topping, but canned peaches make it another easy- peasy recipe. Looks fabulous too! A bit of cinnamon enhances the flavors.

How about a delicious strawberry and cream cheese cobbler? I found this at Just a Pinch, and it sounds so good! You make the cake like cobbler on the bottom of the baking pan, then layer strawberries and cream cheese on top. While it bakes, it all bubbles together. Yum!

Next, A Cook's Quest give us this divine recipe for Sugar Cookie Crust cobbler. I've got to try this one! Look at that perfect crust!

Finally, a recipe using fresh apricots. Mz.Tasty's Kitchen gives us this cobbler with a traditional, almost biscuit like topping. The addition of cinnamon and nutmeg to the fruit, make it sound delicious! I'm sure it can be adapted to your favorite fruit.
