Skillet Fruit Crisp

If we’re being honest, we should go ahead and admit that sometimes in the summer, we just eat pie for dinner. High on our list of favorites is this berry crisp. Baked in a skillet that goes right to the table, you’ll find plenty to love in this rustic, homey dessert. Not too sweet, it’s filled with jammy berries, fragrant with warm cinnamon and toasty walnuts – and best of all, can be thrown together in practically the time it takes to whip up some cream to go on top. When there’s something this soul-warming on offer, no one will much care what’s for dinner anyway, so give yourself a night off and enjoy the sweet freedom of summer.
