Grilled Fruit Crisp!

I hope everybody is doing well. I want to apologize for not getting any blogs out all summer. My work as an aircraft mechanic has kept me busy with lots of overtime. Also we have been busy enjoying the summer in Alaska. I will try to catch you up on some of the things I did this summer in another blog. I am going to give you a recipe for a crisp that I made up. I used peaches, nectarines, and pears, but feel free to try other fruits as well. All measurements are approximates, so sorry if you like to be exact.

for the filling:
cut up 3 peaches, 1 pear and one nectarine
mix in:
 1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
juice and zest of 1 lemon
splash of vanilla extract (or about a couple teaspoons)
a few shakes of cinnamon (or about 1 teaspoon)
a sprinkle of old fashioned oats

1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup old fashioned oats
1 tablespoon flour
Set aside:
2 tablespoons of butter thinly sliced

To assemble:
Prep the filling
Prep the topping
Melt 1 Tablespoon butter in a cast iron skillet
Add the filling
sprinkle with topping
add the sliced butter cut earlier on top
indirect grill at about 350 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour until it is bubbling and the top is golden.
(Note: you could also cook it at 350 for the same amount of time in your oven)

Crisp cooking on the grill. I had some alder wood in my smoker box,
We loved the crisp. I have made it twice now and have added it to my favorite recipes. I hope you enjoy it. I have other fun recipes to share with you from the summer too, so look forward to more blogs soon. Have a great time till next time and happy grillin'.
