The Joy Of Vegan Fall Fruit Crisp
There’s nothing better than the warm, spicy scent of baking vegan cobbler or crisp on a cool autumn day. Okay, there may be a few things better, but just work with me here. This weekend, I warmed up my home with Fall Fruit Crisp (page 142) from The Joy of Vegan Baking. The recipe suggests a combination of interchangeable fruits for the crisp, but mine held them all: apples, pears, blueberries, and raisins. The preparation was so quick and easy, so as long as you have 45 minutes of baking time before company stops by, pop one of these in the oven, skip the scented soy candles, and serve up something simple and sweet!
The blueberries were so juicy, they created a lovely “blueberry sauce” in the bottom of the dish. Speaking of the dish, the recipe indicated to use an 8 inch square pan, but I couldn’t jam it all in there for the life of me, so I upgraded to a 2 quart casserole dish. We all very much enjoyed this crisp’s mild sweetness, tender fruit chunks, and crispy oat topping. And if you don’t have The Joy of Vegan Baking, may I suggest simply switching the fruit in my vegan Peach Crumble recipe? Yum!
