Margaret was a dear friend from Church, whom I was so glad to have gotten to know,before her passing...she brought this delicious crisp to our Church picnic and I could have sworn it was apple crisp... it so good...if you have an over abundance of zucchini...this is one recipe you will just have to try... in the past, if I didn't have enough zucchini, added some apples to make up the difference. It's great either way...I added the addition of nuts. She would be so happy to know, I shared her recipe, for others to enjoy! All photos are mine

How To Make fabulous zucchini crisp - delicious!

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degree F. In a large bowl, mix all crust ingredients, until crumbly. In a 9 x 13 baking dish, place 1/2 the crumb mixture into dish and pat down evenly. Bake for 10 minutes.
  • 2
    Cool on rack. Make filling. In a large saucepan, place zucchini, lemon juice, sugar and cinnamon. Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer and cook until tender. ( I slice my zucchini thin, so the cooking only take about 8 - 10 minutes, you don't want the filling mushy.)
  • 3
    Once zucchini is tender add 1/2 - 3/4 cup of topping to thicken. Cook another minute or two, until thickened.
  • 4
    Remove from heat and spread on the crust.
  • 5
    Sprinkle the top with the remainder of crumb mixture. Place back in oven and bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until topping begins to brown and filling is bubbly.

    Can serve warm with ice cream if desired. Delicious!
