um, YUM

I had a fridge full of yummy berries yesterday and decided to whip up something delightful for dessert. This recipe did not disappoint! Now, don't get me wrong, it will not be winning any low in calorie awards. Believe it or not I cut down the sugar from the original recipe and used a light butter. In the future I would probably cut the recipe in half and bake it in an 8x8 just for our family. If I had company I would do the full recipe listed here. It was even better today warmed up with some whipped cream on top! Seriously a crowd pleaser. So good!

Ingredients:
-1 pint strawberries, quartered
-1/2 pint blueberries
-6 oz package of blackberries
-2 T. sugar
-2 cups all purpose flour
-1 cup brown sugar
-2 cups oats
-1 t. cinnamon
-1/2 t. nutmeg
-1 cup butter (2 sticks)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl toss berries in sugar. Set aside. In another large bowl combine flour, brown sugar, oats, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Cut in butter until crumbly. Press half of the mixture into the bottom of a 9x13. Cover with berries. Top with remaining mixture. Bake for 40 min. until fruit is bubbly and top is golden brown. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Enjoy the deliciousness!
