Berry Crisp

With so many beautiful berries in season I could't resist making one of my favorite desserts for Mother's Day.  This is one of those no fuss recipes where I really dont have a recipe except for the crisp.  You can make it with apples, peaches, plums, really any kind of fruit that is on season at the time.  Serve warm with ice cream and you are in Heaven!

Berry Filling:
-3 containers of strawberries
-1 container blueberries
-1 container raspberries
-1 container blackberries
(You don't have to be exact, and can add more or less of anything)
-1 cup of sugar
- the juice of 1 lemon

Crisp topping:
-1/2 cup unsalted butter
-1 cup firmley packed brown sugar
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-1 cup flour
-1/3 cup quick cooking oats

Preheat oven to 350'. Wash and trim up berries if needed.  Toss in sugar and lemon juice.  Place in baking dish and set aside. Melt butter and stir in brown sugar and salt.  Add flour and oatmeal and stir until just incorporated, do not overwork! Crumble over berries. Place in oven and bake 50 to 60 minutes till golden brown and bubbly.
