fresh fruit sugar cookie crisp.
Why haven’t we thought of this before? A sugar cookie topping for a fruit crisp?!
Emma was pretty excited to give it a go…
I think peaches, apples, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries or a combination of fruits would be incredible too! Just toss them in a dish with some flour and sugar, then top with a huge sugar cookie!
Simple. Easy. And a major crowd-pleaser too. You might have people fighting over seconds so just get ready to bring your mad negotiation and peacemaking skills, you know, in case things get real crazy.
Fresh Fruit Sugar Cookie Crisp
(Adapted from Heather Christo, with whom I’m absolutely smitten at the moment, serves 10)
2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter, cut into small pieces
2 egg yolks
2 tablespoons sugar
8 cups chopped fresh fruit (I used strawberries, about 3 pounds)
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
In a food processor, combine the flour, sugar and salt together. Add butter and pulse into fine crumbs. Add the yolks and pulse until dough comes together, adding a little ice water if needed so the dough sticks together (trying not to pulse too much or dough will be tough). Form into a dough on wax paper and refrigerate.
Cut fruit and toss in a large bowl with the sugar and flour. Place in a 9×13″ pan.
Meanwhile, roll out the refrigerated cookie dough on the wax paper, using a little flour to prevent sticking to the rolling pin. Roll out to a 9×13″ shape, and then use the wax paper to roll onto the fruit. Sprinkle sugar on top of the dough.
Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until crust starts to turn golden. Serve hot or at room temperature. Serve with fresh whipped cream or ice cream.
TOTAL: $6.65 or $.67 per serving (ice cream or whipped cream not included).
Wondering how on earth I arrived at these costs? Take a look at my shopping guide to show see what I pay for items, per serving, etc.
