I use the words Fresh Berry Crisp with Brown Sugar Cream loosely with this recipe, because it’s not truly either. Although, the description does fit it well because it is a fresh assembly of bursting berries and crisp granola clusters, topped with sour cream and brown sugar. See? All in the title there.
This is the epitome of simple. In fact, it can hardly be called a recipe. But, it is a combination that I wouldn’t have thought of without some inspiration from another source. Sour cream may seem an odd thing to add to berries, but that tartness along with the sweetness of the brown sugar, is the perfect compliment to any berry you can imagine. If you are not brave enough to try it with sour cream you may substitute it with plain yogurt. But, then you are just having the same old and what’s the fun in that?
The thing I love most about this concoction is that it’s mostly just berries. Usually I have yogurt with sprinkling of berries or cereal with a few berries thrown in. But, this time, the berries are at the forefront and the others are just accents to bring out that fresh fruity flavour. If you are wanting to eat a bowl of fruit but desiring a little dessert like pizzaz I suggest you give this a try.

I”ve been having one of those weeks. You know, the one where you hit the floor at 5:30 in the morning after tripping over your sons safety gate, or send your fresh pizza flying while giving yourself a matching pair of second degree burns. Yeah, it”s been one of those weeks. Thankfully it is Friday and I am eagerly awaiting the start of a new week, hoping for the absence of pinched fingers, banged heads, and stubbed toes.
I wish I had a slice of this Butterscotch Apple Crisp to drowned out my bruises. Unfortunately, I will have to be satisfied with drooling over this photo that I took while visiting my parents in Canada. You see, Jello Instant Pudding has yet to be discovered here in Norway (by me). The likeliest candidate I have found so far are these sticky puddings, which don”t have me convinced just yet. But perhaps, after a little testing.
I normally like to make most of my foods from scratch. But, sometimes there is just no substitute for the instant pudding packages. Plus, it is just so darn tasty. The recipe calls for a 7×11 pan but I have often used a 8×8 pan with great results.
