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!

How to Make Fabulous Zucchini Crisp - Delicious!

Step-by-Step

  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.
  6. Can serve warm with ice cream if desired.

    Delicious!
