Easy Apricot Crisp

Apricot picking

Yesterday we were blessed with bounty from a friend’s apricot tree. When we got home we made some jam. But then in the midst of other busyness, my energy for the apricots kind of fizzled away. So from the last of the apricots that my kids had pitted for me, I made this easy crisp.  (Hopefully my apricot mojo will return soon, since I still have 5 boxes of apricots!)


Easy Apricot Crisp

8 cups halved apricots, washed and pitted
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup quick oats
1-1/2 cups brown sugar
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 sticks melted butter

Wash and pit apricots until you have about 8 cups. Toss with white sugar. Spread sugar/apricot mixture in a 9×12 casserole dish. Melt butter in a bowl in the microwave. In a medium bowl combine oats, brown sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix well. Add melted butter and combine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over the top of the apricot mixture. Bake for 50 minutes at 325 degrees. Serve warm or cool. Wonderful with ice cream or whipped topping.
