Nectarine Crisp

Nectarine Crisp

Last night Courtney and Jaren came over for a belated 4th of July dinner.  On the actual 4th, we were at The Stadium of Fire watching Journey, woo hoo!  And Courtney, who manages the Sodalicious Provo location, was working her little butt off!  So we had dinner together last night.  I had some nectarines from Costco that got a little squishy really fast in the heat so decided to try this nectarine crisp which was really good.  The recipe comes from The Dallas Morning News.

Fruit layer

6 cups sliced nectarines

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1/4 teaspoon salt

Crisp layer

3/4 cup flour

1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

6 tablespoons butter

1  Preheat oven to 375.  Spray 8 x 8″ or 9 x 9″ pan with cooking spray.

2  Mix together fruit layer ingredients and pour into baking dish.

3  Mix together crisp layer ingredients except butter.  Add 3 tablespoons of butter to crisp mixture using 2 knives or a pastry cutter/blender until mixture has only tiny clumps.  Sprinkle over fruit.  Melt remaining 3 tablespoons of butter and drizzle over topping.

4  Bake for 30 minutes, until fruit is bubbling and topping is browned.
