Raspberry Crisp

Raspberry Crisp

Bright natural color signals the presence of health-promoting anti-oxidants in foods, and raspberries are a great example. Rich in vitamins and anti-inflammatory nourishment, raspberry desserts are a healthy way to usher in the Spring.

Here, bright bubbly berries nestle underneath a whole-grain oat topping touched with cinnamon for a dessert that will please the whole family: a classic simple recipe that allows the tart-sweet goodness of berries to shine. Read it here.

INGREDIENTS
4 cups fresh raspberries or frozen, thawed
Brown sugar to taste, if needed to sweeten berries

Topping
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
3/5 cup uncooked quick-cooking oats
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup non-hydrogenated margarine, softened

1. Preheat oven to 375F. Taste a berry: if itís too tart or sour, add brown sugar to taste, tossing the berries gently with the sugar to combine.

2. Lightly oil a 8 x 8-inch baking dish. Place berries evenly in the dish.

3. In a medium bowl, combine topping ingredients and sprinkle over berries.

4. Bake until topping is golden-brown and berries are bubbling, about 25 minutes.

Serves 6.
