Zucchini Crisp

I have no idea where this recipe came from, but I hope you enjoy it.

Zucchini Crisp
I made this wonderful and very easy dessert twice last week. It's a wonderful use for those huge zucchini. Give it a try.

Filling: Chop the white part of the zucchini into small slices. You don't want the green peel or the seeded section. You will need about 8 cups. Place them in a pot with about 3/4 cup of lemon juice. And boil, stirring constantly, until they start to get a bit of a transparent look.

Topping: Mix 8 T butter (unsalted is best) with 1 cup of flour or GF flour mix with 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum), 1/2 cup sugar, and 3/4 cup rolled oats. Mix together well with a mixer. This will resemble cookie dough.

Put it together: Place the zucchini in a 13x9 pan (lightly sprayed with cooking oil) Sprinkle a 1/2 cup of dark brown sugar, 1/4 cup sugar (I used vanilla sugar), and two heaping teaspoons of cinnamon. Use a spoon and try to mix the sugar and spice so that all of the zucchini gets some. Place the topping on top of the zucchini by small spoonfuls to cover most of the top. Bake in a 350 oven for 30-40 minutes. Will begin to brown slightly when done. Serve with ice cream. Makes 8 small servings or 4-6 for oink-oinks.

Half the people who try this swear it's apple and some guess pear.
We just swear that it's good. :)

Have a super week!


  1. congrats to both of your daughters - both brave and talented folks in your household! :)

  2. Congrats to your daughters! That crisp looks really good.

  3. Oh what fantastic achievements for the girls. Well done to them.... I for one would have loved to have been there to hear that harp being played :) Beautiful.
    Mind you, I'd like to have seen D3 perform too.... we'd have split up, Patrice - you to one, me to the other ;)

  4. It looks like apple in the picture. I will make it soon as we have hot enough weather for my zucchini starts growing.
    I bet you are one proud Mama. Your girls did so good and I have always thought that was what is cool about home schooling the kids are not shy about performing. Not like we were.
    I hope your week is a bit slower.
    I look forward to pictures next time there is a horse show. :)

  5. No wonder you're a proud Mother! Congratulations to your daughters, great achievements :o)
    Hope you have a quieter week Patrice?
    Best wishes

  6. Your daughters are very talented. Congratulations to both of them. How I wish I could play the harp. I just love harp music. I find it soothing and healing. thanks for sharing. JB

    My zucchinis are just starting to bloom so I should have plenty of zucchini soon to try this awesome looking recipe.

  7. Your daughters sound like awesome and independent young women...confident as well. Thanks for the recipe as I need all of the help with the zucchini crop I can get.

  8. Juggling kids' activities is tough. I only had 2 and even then we sometimes were pulled in different directions and missed seeing special events. The kids turned out OK!
    My BFF's daughter just graduated from a conservatory in Chicago with a degree in music/opera. She's taking a year to let her voice 'mature' and then will continue her studies. I hope your daughter continues her study. It is amazing to hear young folks who love singing! The harp has got to be pretty tough, too!

  9. D2 reminds me of something that happened to the middle school band at School of the Arts on several occasions- when they finished performing, they were told they had been disqualified for playing music on a college level--that it was unfair to the other groups. Really? That's your D2- she's just too advanced for them! Way above their heads. I would have judged in her favor and not just because she has such a great mom!

  10. When I looked at the picture, I thought it was apple. Looks delicious!!! HOPE you have a great rest of the week....and try to sloooooooooow down!!! ;-)
