4 medium apples, peeled, cored and sliced
4 medium nectarines, peeled, pitted and sliced
½ cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons apricot nectar
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1½ cups granulated sugar
¾ cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
â…› teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ cup chilled margarine, cut into small pieces
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 2½ quart baking dish. Mix together apples, nectarines, sugar, apricot nectar, lemon juice and cinnamon. Spread filling evenly in prepared baking dish. To prepare topping, in a medium bowl, mix together granulated sugar, flour, brown sugar and cinnamon. Using a pastry blender or 2 knives, cut margarine into flour mixture until coarse crumbs form. Sprinkle topping evenly over fruit filling. Bake crisp until filling bubbles and topping is golden, 45 minutes. Transfer baking dish to a wire rack to cool slightly.
*Serve this crisp in a bowl. Garnish with whipped cream and nectarine slices. If fresh nectarines are not available, use frozen, thawed or canned, drained peaches.
