Plum Apple Raspberry (Fruit) Crisp

I got sucked into buying the big container of plums from Costco. They really are delicious, but what are the 3 of us going to do with that many plums. I also had been waiting patiently for Costco to get raspberries back in, when they did you had to buy a box of them. Now, I love raspberries but that was a lot to go through.

*Sidenote: the best thing to do with raspberries is to make whole wheat pancakes, sprinkle with raspberries, then top with real maple syrup - yummy!

So with that in mind, I decided to make a fruit crisp. Some of the plums were a bit tart but I thought it turned out quite delicious!

The topping recipe comes from The Barefoot Contessa, I altered her Apple Pear Crisp recipe.

Plum (Fruit) Crisp

2 pounds ripe plums (6 plums)
1 pound apples (3-4 apples)
1 pint raspberries
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

For the topping:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup old-fashioned oatmeal
1/2 pound (2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, diced

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Peel, core, and cut the apples into large chunks. Cut plums into large slices. Place the plums, apples, and raspberries in a large bowl and add the zests, sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Pour into a 9 by 12 by 2-inch (or about a 2 quart) baking dish.

For the topping:Combine the flour, sugars, salt, oatmeal, and butter in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on low speed for 1 minute, until the mixture is in large crumbles. Sprinkle evenly over the fruit, covering the fruit completely.

Place the baking dish on a sheet pan and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour, until the top is brown and the fruit is bubbly. Serve warm.
