Summer fruit crisp

3-4 peaches or 7-8 apricots
2 handfuls sweet cherries or summer berries
1/2 cup flour
1 cup oats
1/2 cup sugar
tiny pinch salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
dash ground cloves
1/4 cup butter, chilled

Cut the fruit in half, removing the pits. Cut the larger fruit into 1/2 inch slices.

Layer the fruit in a baking dish. Sprinkle with 1-2 Tbsps sugar. In a bowl, mix the flour, remaining sugar, salt and cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Slice the butter into chunks and mix it into the dry ingredients until it looks like pea size crumbs. Sprinkle crumbs over fruit.

Bake for 30 to 40 minutes in preheated oven at 350 degrees, until lightly golden.
