Starfruit Apple Crisp

A lot of crisp recipes make the crunchy topping the star of the dish, in this recipe starfruit and apples deliciously demand top billing. Baked fruit as a frequent dessert is always a nutritional winner when sugary toppings play a supporting role.


1 starfruit
4 apples (your choice) cored and sliced into chunks
3 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon culinary lavender (optional)
1 cup graham cracker crust
3 tablespoons melted butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Spray an 8x8 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray
Slice the starfruit into thin stars
In a large bowl, combine starfruit slices, apple chunks, lime juice, brown sugar, cinnamon and lavender.
In a medium bowl, combine graham cracker crust and butter with a fork until crumbly.
Add graham cracker mixture to fruit mixture, tossing to coat fruit evenly.
Bake for 45 minutes
Serve warm
6 servings
