Strawberry Crisp


Fruit crisps are one of my go-to dessert recipes, especially in the summer. They are extremely quick and easy to prepare and can just bake while you're eating dinner. This is my second strawberry crisp I've made this summer so far and I think this is the keeper recipe. My husband and I think the the crisp is the best part and this recipe gives a great ratio of crisp to fruit. Most of the time I have to double the crisp topping in order to get a good ratio. You could even serve this with some vanilla ice cream or whipped cream if you wish!
