Chef Tips:

  • If you have fresh fruit on hand, go ahead and use it! Peel and cut your favorite fruit combination and add to the crisp!

  • Traditionally you will find cinnamon in a crisp recipe. However, ginger goes quite well with tropical fruit. If you prefer, you can also substitute a Tablespoon of fresh ginger.

  • This recipe is a great make-ahead recipe for a party; it can be served warm or cold. If you prefer it warm, simply place a serving in a bowl and microwave for 30-60 seconds before adding the ice cream or whipped topping!
