Berrilicious Crisp

I have noticed lately how screamingly good the berries are. There are some really nice deals at Sam's Club and other places. Christina is always begging me to buy her some berries so she can make her favorite smoothies before softball practice. Well Christina is a sleepyhead and never gets up in time to do it, so I took these beauties and created this stunner. It is only 5 points a serving on Weight Watchers. Isn't it ironic that I have to eat like this to lose weight?
4 cups of mixed berries
2 apples
1 cup of cranberries, I always freeze them from the holidays
3 tablespoons of lime juice
1 1/2 cups of sugar
3 tablespoons of cornstarch
pinch of salt

Tossed it all up really pretty and poured it into a 13 x 9 inch Pyrex dish.

In my Cuisinart I pulsed
1/2 cup of cold butter with, 1 cup of flour, 3/4 sugar, 3/4 cup brown sugar

Then I patted it carefully over the pretty fruit and baked it for 35 minutes at 400 or until it was crusty on top and bubbly all over. You can kind of tell by the smell that it is done too. It will be reminiscent of a pie. If you haven't smelled a fruit pie before...get to baking already~

I couldn't resist a small sample.

I really do live to eat.
