sweet berries. part1.

 i love to bake.
of course photography/design is my dream job, but if i had to choose a different one... i might want to be a pastry chef.
pies, cookies, & cakes... love.
of course, i also love taking photos of food, so maybe there is a job in that... hmmm...
so anyway, i made two yummy treats this past week! with strawberries & blackberries.
here is the first one. berry crisp. yummm.
{i will get to the second recipe, with photos a little later this week.}

Strawberry & Blackberry Crisp

2 cups fresh blackberries
2 cups fresh strawberries
(of course you could use whatever berries you want)
4 tablespoons white sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
(i added more cinnamon & nutmeg, because i love them!!!)
1 1/2 cups butter
preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

in a large bowl, gently toss together the berries and white sugar; set aside.

in a separate large bowl, combine flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. cut in butter until crumbly. press half of mixture in the bottom of a 9x13 inch pan. cover with the berries. crumble the remaining mixture over the berries.

bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 40 minutes, or until fruit is bubbly and topping is golden brown.

*serve warm with vanilla frozen yogurt. :)
