Mixed Berry Crisp

I'm used to apple crisps like the favorite one my mom made when I was small.  It's very simple and sweet (but not too sweet.)  We're not quite at apple season so berries it is.  Serve with whipped cream or ice cream for dessert or on its own for breakfast.

Mixed Berry Crisp

1 package raspberries

1 package blackberries

1 package blueberries

1/2 stick butter, cut in pieces

3/4 cup oats

1/2 cup all purpose flour  (or whole wheat)

1/4 cup light brown sugar

pinch salt

dash cinnamon

zest of one lemon

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Wash and dry berries.  Place berries in baking dish (8x8" square, pie or small single serving dishes ) and set aside.

In a bowl mix butter, oats, flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon and lemon zest until it comes together.  It works best to mix by hand.

Cover berries with oat mixture and bake 30 minutes.
