Best Dessert: Fruit Crisp
S. Crowley
Millbrae, California

1 cup flour
3 cups dry oatmeal
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
½ tsp. salt
3 tsp. cinnamon
1 cup margarine or butter, melted
Enough apples or peaches (sliced) to fill a 9" X 13" pan

At home before the trip, mix thoroughly in zipper plastic bag: flour, oatmeal, brown sugar, salt and cinnamon.

On the houseboat:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. Add melted butter to the bag and mix well. Mixture should be crumbly.
3. Slice fruit.
4. Place sliced fruit in a 9" X 13" pan and top with oatmeal mixture.
5. Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees.

During the summer time, we usually do this in the morning when the weather is cool and sit around the front deck preparing the fruit and chatting. This is a fun time and then the oven is not heating up the houseboat in the afternoon when the weather is hot.

Serves 12- 15.
Leftovers are great for breakfast.
