Having friends over for dinner and need a quick and easy dessert recipe?  Look no further!

This recipe only takes a few minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to bake.

I like to keep a bag of frozen fruit in the freezer for this very reason, to whip up a dessert in no time flat!  Whether you make a crumble topping out of oats, flakes or cookies, you can’t go wrong with a warm fruit crisp!

Inspiration for this recipe came from my trusty old Moosewood Restaurant Cookbook.  I added a few ingredients to the original recipe to spice it up a little.

Crushed gingersnap cookies create the crumble topping.  Newman’s Own makes a tasty vegan gingersnap and Mi-Del makes a great gluten free gingersnap.  I haven’t run across a brand that makes a vegan and gluten free gingersnap…have you? Please share if you have!  I suppose you can make your own, but that would take “quick” and “easy” out of the equation!
