autumn berry crisp

Do you want to die and go to berry heaven??
Well my friends, this is what I call death by berries and it's divine.
My mom has a mean apple crisp recipe that has kind of become a family tradition, but today I wanted something a little different so I switched it out with berries and made some small additions.
All in all, I think we have ourselves a winner. Robert said he may even like it even better than apple crisp.

Autumn Berry Crisp

2 cups fresh or frozen mixed berries
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/8 t. cinnamon
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup quick rolled oats

In a medium-sized bowl combine berries and sugar until all the berries are evenly coated with the sugar. If using frozen berries, allow them to thaw at room temperature in the bowl for 30 minutes prior. They'll still be a little frozen but will cook just great. Place berry and sugar mixture into a buttered 9" pie pan. In a separate bowl mix brown sugar, flour and cinnamon together. With pastry cutter cut butter into flour mixture until crumbs are the size of small peas. Stir in oats. Spread mixture over the berries, pressing down evenly. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Top with whipped cream, ice cream, additional berries or any other garnish that suits your fancy.
