There is nothing like a fresh berry crisp in the summer time as a light, quick dessert.  This recipe uses either fresh or frozen berries, making it a perfect dessert any time of the year.  Baked right in a cast iron skillet, the crisp would make an impressive addition to your Fourth of July picnic or barbeque table.

Mixed Berry Crisp Baked in your Cast Iron Skillet  

Ingredients: 
6 cups of fresh or frozen berries, any combination you wish
1/4 - 1/2 cup sugar (depending on how sweet your berries are)
1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
 
For the Topping: 
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup old-fashioned oats
1 stick cold salted butter, cut into small cubes
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl, toss the berries with the sugar, flour and spices. Pour into your cast iron skillet. Rinse the bowl and in the same bowl, mix the topping ingredients, rubbing the butter between your fingers with the dry ingredients until it forms small clumps.  Pour the topping over the berries and bake for one hour or until the filling bubbles and the topping is golden brown.  Let cool for 15 minutes then top with fresh, homemade whipped cream, if desired, and serve.
