Do you ever wish you had a quick, warm dessert for supper or to serve unexpected company? You’re in luck, this is exactly what I had in mind when creating the “What’s in Your Pantry?” series. Wouldn’t it be comforting to know you have the ingredients on hand to create a quick and easy recipe anytime?
A warm fruit crisp is just the thing on a cold day. Homey and casual, it’s perfect for a family supper or to serve company. Below are two suggestions for crisp recipes you can whip up at the last minute.
When making these suggestions, I try to keep in mind the ingredients you probably always have on hand. We loosely interpret pantry to include common refrigerated ingredients and those easily kept in the freezer. For these recipes, I’m assuming you have oats, brown sugar, butter, maybe pecans or other nuts, dried cranberries or raisins, and of course a few packages of Martha White® muffin mix. If so, all you need is a couple of cans of pie filling and frozen fruit.
For the Cherry Berry Crisp, you’ll need a fruit flavored muffin mix. The recipe calls for Wildberry, but a Blueberry flavored mix would also be good. Use an Apple Cider flavored muffin mix for the Apple Cider Crisp. The recipe calls for dried, fresh or frozen cranberries, but you could also substitute raisins in place of cranberries.
