Crisps are so easy to make and perfect for entertaining...Everyone loves this recipe and I use whatever I get cheap at the farmer's market...When the fruits are in season, you don't have to add extra sugar and for some added coolness, just serve with ice-cream.

For the topping:
1 cup flour
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup melted butter
1/3 cup raw sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup nuts (pistachios or almonds)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla

For the fruit base, mix any fruit you like. For a 9 inch pie pan, you will need 3 cups of fruit...Here are some ideas...Mix and match as you like...Experiment....Have fun!

Mangoes and Peaches
Peaches and Apricots
Blueberries and Peaches
Plums and Berries
Berries (Strawberries, Raspberries, Blueberries, Blackberries)
Apples and Grapes
Pineapple and Mangoes

Mix all the topping ingredients and sprinkle over the fruit. Bake for 35 to 40 minuted in 350 degrees or until the topping gets CRISP!
