Mixed Berry Crisp for Two

Sometimes I get that craving after the kids go to bed for a sweet treat. However, I don't want to make up a huge batch of something, and I don't want the leftovers to tempt me the next day. My hubby loves the tart flavor of berries, and I love the sweet topping on fruit crisps. This recipe is awesome, and can be made fast, and makes 2 servings that are the perfect size. I doubled the topping, so if you want you can half it. (But, why oh why would you do that?). I use the frozen mixed berries from Costco, and they are awesome. This crisp has raspberries, blackberries and blueberries. It is optional to serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream if you have that lying around (which I never do).

Mixed Berry Crisp for Two

For the berries:

1 1/2 c, frozen mixed berries, thawed (I use the microwave)
2-3 tbs sugar
1 tbs flour
1 tsp lemon juice
pinch of salt

For the topping:

4 tbs oats
8 tbs brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
6 tbs flour
2 tbs butter
2 tbs chopped nuts (optional, and any kind you have on hand)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix ingredients for the berries together. Put into 2 ramekins or an 2 oven safe small bowls. Mix topping ingredient with your hands until butter has been thoroughly mixed in. Divide topping evenly among the two ramekins. Place in preheated oven for 25 minutes or until you see the berry juice bubbling on the sides. Let cool slightly before eating.
