Old Fashioned Fresh Fruit Crisp

6 cups fresh seasonal fruits (peaches, blackberries, strawberries, plums, raspberries, apples, pears)
1 ½ cups dark-brown sugar
1 ½ cups old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant)
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp kosher salt
1 ½ sticks chilled unsalted butter, cut in bits
Garnish with whipped cream or Vanilla Ice Cream

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Lightly butter a 9 X 12-inch glass or enamel baking dish.

Place the fruit in the baking dish.  In a bowl, combine the sugar, oats, flour, cheese, and salt and mix.  With a hand mixer or using your fingertips, quickly mix the bits of butter into the sugar mixture to form a coarse meal.  The mixture should be loose and crumbly.  Work quickly to avoid melting the butter.

Gently sprinkle the topping mixture over the fruit.  Bake for 35 minutes or until the top is lightly browned and the fruits are bubbling.  Serve warm with whipped cream or vanilla ice-cream
