Today was one of those days that was just perfect for raspberry picking. So off I went to Whittamore’s Farm¬†armed with a few empty shallow containers!!!

raspberry - 3 buckets

Then I went home and the fun started!! I proceeded to make a “few” (ha) raspberry crisps. Here’s the recipe I used:

RASPBERRY CRISP (taken from Taste of Home)

4 cups of frozen or fresh raspberries

1/3 cup sugar

1/3 cup plus 3 tablespoons of all purpose flour

3/4 cup quick cooking oats

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 cup cold butter cubed


1. In a large bowl, gently toss raspberries with sugar and 3 tablespoons flour. Transfer to a greased square baking dish.

2. In another large bowl, combine the oats, brown sugar, remaining flour; Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles course crumbs. Sprinkle over berries

raspberry - step2 3. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

Remember those 3 containers of raspberries? Well add 3 quarts of blueberries (on sale at Metro 3 for $5) and this is how many crisps you will get!! (16 individual, 3 medium sized portions, 1 large)

raspberry - final

I clearly had a productive day. Felt great to be back in the kitchen again!!

Happy Baking.
