For a true locavore, spring is a time of transition.  Roast the last of the stored beets, chop up any lingering cabbages and scour the freezer for remaining fruit.

Leftover fruit?  That’s a bonus!

And what better destination for icy sliced peaches, frosty blueberries or even fresh fruit than a baked fruit dessert!  When you combine the health value of fruit and the joy of dessert, how can you go wrong? 

Of course, baked fruit desserts come in many different varieties. Crisps, cobblers, buckles, Brown Betties…How’s a baker to decide?

A Guide to Baked Fruit Desserts

Crisps



A crisp, sometimes called a crumble, is a fruit dessert where fruit is topped with crumbs of flour, oatmeal and sugar, then baked.  One of the most basic fruit desserts, it is super-easy and amenable to changing up for special diets.  Gluten-free?  Use a gluten-free oatmeal and flour.  Sugar-free? Sweeten with maple syrup or stevia.
