Apple-Cherry Crisp

Apple-Cherry Crisp

Preheat oven to 375°F. Place apples and cherries in a buttered 7x11-inch baking dish or other pretty dessert dish of similar size. In a small bowl, stir together apple juice concentrate, lemon juice, cornstarch, cinnamon, zest and ginger; pour over the fruit and toss gently to mix. Set aside.

To make the topping, stir together oats, pastry and white flour, sugar, nutmeg and salt. Using a pastry blender or two knives, cut butter into flour and oat mixture until well combined. Spread the topping over the fruit, pressing down slightly.

Bake until the top is golden brown and the fruit is tender and bubbly, 50 to 60 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes and serve warm.
