50% – Sugar Free Peach-Plum Crisp

This is a good dessert to serve with ice cream – and although  it isn’t totally ‘no-sugar-added’  it is what I like to call a 50% recipe because I use ‘real’ brown sugar for part of the ingredients.  I’ve not tried making it with the Splenda brown sugar because I think it needs real brown sugar to taste and crunch properly . . .  and  the quick oats add to it a nice ‘nutty’ flavor.

4 large ripe peaches;  3-4 medium  black or red plums;   2 teaspoons lemon juice;  3/4 cup Splenda;  1 tablespoon corn starch,  dash of cinnamon (optional) and 1 Pillsbury Pie Crust.

Ingredients for crispy topping:

2 tablespoons cold butter;  3/4 cup ‘quick’ oats;  1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon brown sugar;  1 tablespoon flour;  dash cinnamon.  (This will not work with a butter substitute.)

To make the topping combine all topping ingredients in a bowl and mix using  a pastry cutter, pair of knives or your hands – until the texture is completely mixed and has a grainy texture.  Set aside.

Peel and slice the peaches and plums into a bowl.  Add lemon juice, Splenda, corn starch and cinnamon.  Gently mix together until the fruit is covered with the dry ingredients.

Into a buttered pan (approximately 11″ x 8″) pour the fruit filling.  Next – on a lightly floured surface, unroll the pie crust and slice into 1″ strips.  Weave the strips over the top of the filling leaving some space between the strips to allow for venting.  Continue the weaving process until the top is covered.  Trim the long edges and then tuck them so the top looks neat.  Pour the topping mixture over the woven crust and spread evenly.

Bake in a 375 degree oven for approximately 25-35 minutes.  Since oven temperatures vary check frequently during the last 10 minutes.  The topping should be a deep golden brown with the juice bubbling up.
