Ingredients

  • 8 cup fresh fruit, such as thinly sliced and pitted nectarines, peaches, and/or plums, or blueberries

  • 3 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoon packed brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ 18 ounce refrigerated sugar cookie dough

  • ½ cup graham cracker crumbs

  • cup chopped hazelnuts* or pecans, toasted (optional)

  • 1 Powdered Sugar Icing or honey

Powdered Sugar Icing

  • ½ cup powdered sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla

  • 1 teaspoon milk

  • milk

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl combine fruit, flour, brown sugar, lemon juice, and cinnamon. Toss to coat; transfer to a 10-inch oven-safe skillet, or 7-7/8x7-7/8x1-7/8-inch foil pan. Set aside.

  2. Combine dough and graham cracker crumbs in medium bowl; knead until well combined. Divide dough in 9 portions. With hands, on a lightly floured surface, flatten each portion to 2-1/2-inch round. Arrange rounds on fruit mixture; sprinkle with nuts.

  3. If using foil pan, place on baking sheet. Bake for 55 to 60 minutes or until filling is bubbly around edges and top is golden brown. Cool on wire rack for 45 minutes. Before serving, drizzle with Powdered Sugar Icing or honey; serve warm. Makes 6 to 9 servings.

Powdered Sugar Icing

  1. In a small bowl combine powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk . Stir in additional milk, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, until icing is drizzling consistency.

*TEST KITCHEN TIP:

To toast hazelnuts, spread nuts in a single layer in a shallow baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10 to 15 minutes or until light golden brown, watching carefully and stirring once or twice so nuts do not burn. Place nuts on a clean kitchen towel, fold towel over nuts, and rub vigorously to remove loose skins.
