Ingredients

For the filling

4 ripe pears, peeled and cubed
4 firm-ripe peaches, peeled and cubed
3 bananas, cubed
1 mango, cubed
½ pint strawberries, sliced
½ cup chopped walnuts or sliced almonds
½ cup dried cranberries, cherries or golden raisins

For the topping

½ cup flour
½ cup sugar
¾ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. salt
4 Tbsp. cold butter, cut into pieces

Directions

  1. Make the topping: In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place 1 cup of fresh fruit in an 8-ounce ramekin. Sprinkle with some nuts and dried fruit. The fruit should mound just slightly. Spoon about 3 tablespoons of topping over the fruit.
  3. Put the ramekins on a baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown on top. Remove from the oven and let stand 10 minutes.

Tip: The leftover fruit can be mixed with vanilla yogurt for breakfast. To peel peaches, drop them into boiling water for 45 seconds, and then rinse under cold water.
