The Hunger Games: A Themed Dinner Party
Katniss’ Comfort Crisp!
This is a delicious crisp filled with fresh fruit that is both warming for the winter, and light and fresh for the summer. If you don’t have fresh blackberries, select a different seasonal fruit!
Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees. In a small pyrex baking pan (8 x 8) combine the apples, blackberries and flour. Toss the fruit around until the flour is evenly distributed. In a small food processor combine the oats and the almonds. Grind for about 10 seconds until the almonds are chopped into small bits and the oats are finely ground. Put the almond mixture in a small bowl and add the sugars, salt, and cinnamon. Use your hands to incorporate the butter into the dry ingredients, and mix until the ingredients stick together. Evenly sprinkle the topping over the apples and blackberries and bake for 35 minutes, or until the fruit juice starts bubbling through the crisp topping.
Serve hot with ice cream!
