Apple and Strawberry Crisp

I had a close friend come over for dinner, and I wanted to whip up a quick dessert, that would be easy, yet delicious. First thought that came to my mind, was a crisp, and I had apples and strawberries at home, so I made the crisp accordingly! I made it in little ramekins, cause firstly its a good portion to eat, and secondly  they are just so cute with a dollop of icecream on the top of each ramekin! :) So pretty looking!

Well, it turned out DELICIOUS :)

Ingredients(This recipe makes 12 ramekins) :
2 pounds strawberries
2 pounds firm Apples
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
a pinch of salt

For the topping:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar, lightly packed
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup old-fashioned oatmeal
1/2 pound (2 sticks) cold unsalted butter, diced


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Peel, core, and cut the apples and strawberries into large chunks. Place the fruit in a large bowl and add the zests, juices, sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Pour into the ramekins.
For the topping:
Combine the flour, sugars, salt, oatmeal, and butter in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on low speed for 1 minute, until the mixture is in large crumbles. Sprinkle evenly over the fruit, covering the fruit completely.

Place the ramekins on a sheet pan and bake for about 40 minutes, until the top is brown and the fruit is bubbly. Serve warm with a dollop of vanilla bean icecream. DELISH!
